Film as Literature II

This course is an in-depth study of film production and film writing from a literary perspective. Students will engage with a variety of films through many thematic units, including but not limited to the history of film production, telling a story through visuals, a director’s study, adapting a book to film, film genre study, creating stop-motion animation, and telling their own story in film. Students will analyze the literary, dramatic, and cinematic devices of film through small group and whole class discussion, in formal and informational writing, and through collaborative projects with classmates. All students will have their film reviews published online. Through questioning and critical analysis, students will become more perceptive viewers of film.
