Offerings by Semester

Note that screening times and labs are required of most FMMC courses. In cases of conflict between competing screenings or course meetings, faculty will sometimes grant waivers, allowing students to register for two simultaneous screenings, with the understanding that they will make up the viewing in the library on their own time. Contact faculty prior to Banner registration.

Boxers in US Cinema
Boxers and Boxing in American Cinema
In this course we will examine the representation of boxing and the boxer in American film, principally fiction film. Popular images of “the fight” and “the fighter” will be investigated and special attention will be given to social conflicts including class, race, and gender expressed through these films. We will study the influence of literature, painting, sports culture, and the film industry upon the evolution of the boxer in American cinema. The formal conventions and innovative practices that organize such representations and, in turn, affect audience response will also be investigated.

Script Development
Script Development Workshop
In this course we will focus on the necessary preparation phase before the screenplay writing can begin. Participants will explore ideation techniques, finding a story that is appropriate for a feature length script, outlining and pitching. We will discuss dramatic structure in depth and explore the high-concept potential of your screenplay ideas, examining their aesthetic as well as their business possibilities. We will assemble a pitching packet for your projects, including synopsis, logline, mood board and fantasy casting. At the conclusion of this class, you will have a solid outline supported by pitching materials and a clear overview of your material. The class makes an excellent preparation for students who want to take FMMC 0341 Writing for the Screen II or who plan to write a screenplay for their senior tutorial. (FMMC 0106)
