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 the short film form.

We will analyze specific situations and the rudiments of directing them. Our analysis will be deepened by an examination of well-constructed short films and to constructively critize films with various weaknesses.

The course is intended for students both who plan to direct their own short films and for those looking for skills to critique and analyze short films. Students interested in learning the full spectrum of film analysis from various dramatic styles to the practical techniques of directing are welcome.
