This is an integrated seminar and project-based course. This course explores visual, cultural theory and gives students an overview the evolution of language, critical theory, and ideas. Each week students lead a seminar based on a reading. The presentation concepts are integrated with practical assignments and a research paper. The intention of this course is to integrate students' understanding of ideas with their interest in themes and their emerging voices as filmmakers. Originality, authenticity, and individual voice will be encouraged in both the short projects and the research papers.
