Obsah kurzu

Although a script poses infinite possibilities for realization common situations frequently occur. This course will examine such basic occurrences (three or four person dialogue, movement shots, car scenes, landscapes, cityscapes) and how various directors have interpreted them in both American and European film.

We will analyze specific situations and the rudiments of directing them. Our analysis will be deepened by an examination of master directors and how they developed creative solutions to common cinematic problems such as exposition, scene changes, and beginning and ending a film.
