“Films can be read like texts. Their images should be unpacked just as we would unpack the imagery in a written passage. (Students should) think carefully about how visual or aural tools enact, reshape, change, or critique an author’s textual expressions.”
Today, we are going to spend some time exploring how we are going to learn from movies and "read a film". This is your assignment (which will be on going during the course. We will also discuss due dates....so don't forget to record them on your phone).
The Film Terms Glossary is an excellent source for you to bookmark. It should help you keep track of all the new terminology that you are learning during this course (and it provides some excellent relevant examples to help build your knowledge).
