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.

Cinematography
Cinematography
Cinematography is an advanced video production course with a focus on narrative film lighting, composition, and camera movement. In this course we will produce 4-5 short video assignments, will complete a research presentation on a cinematographer, will learn lighting and camera movement techniques in a hands-on collaborative environment, and will attend lectures and screenings to develop a better understanding of the art and craft of Cinematography. Each day we will spend the first hour performing increasingly technical lighting and camera setups, the second hour learning about new concepts in a traditional lecture setting, and the third hour screening films.

YouTube Culture & Practice
YouTube: History, Culture, & Practice
What does YouTube offer as cultural forum and cultural force, and what are its limits? How has YouTube changed since its 2005 origin, and how is it continuing to evolve? YouTube functions as a site of negotiation between professional and amateur, and between corporate and grassroots. It is home to evolving aesthetics and niche communities, and also functions as a commercial platform. In this course we will explore the commercial and cultural contexts of YouTube and the media forms evolving within its interface. Work for this course involves academic written analyses and media production, including vlogs, reaction videos, remix, and web series.

Students will also produce their own original sound-rich audio piece that will premiere at a public listening event at the close of the winter session. Each student will be required to purchase a set of studio quality, noise-canceling headphones (no ear buds) costing approximately $90. It is strongly advised that students have an external hard drive on which to duplicate and backup their media.

Action and Moving Image
Action and Moving Image
How is action constituted on the screen? And how does the medium affect and inform our experience and understanding of action? We will discuss the formation and transformation of various moving image practices, styles, genres, and cultures in terms of new technologies and techniques as well as new modes of distribution and reception. The moving image practices that we will discuss in this course include, but are not limited to, those surrounding the production and reception of popular and classical action genres such as Hollywood Western, gangster film, Chinese martial arts cinema, Japanese chambara or samurai film, and contemporary Hollywood blockbusters.
