Le Grand Syllabus 2017/2018
Pedagogical Method : Making of a 5 min short movie Course Description : During the twelve sessions of the course we will complete three short ﬁlms. (3 to 5mn). After a ﬁrst class of introduction the students will be divided in three groups. Each group will be working for two to three sessions on collective writing of a script for a ﬁlm in the genre of their choice. There will be a constraint of theme that will be decided for everyone in advance. We will then proceed to prepare the shoot : casting, location props and costumes. The actors will have to be chosen from the students in the class and each student should at least have a small part in one of the three ﬁlms. At this point we will also choose the director, set designer, costume designer, editor… for each ﬁlm. It will be a great opportunity to understand the elements and team members necessary to ﬁlm making and try out various roles in that respect. Work of preparation, part of the shooting and post production (speciﬁcally the editing) will be required from the students outside of class' hours. The course will come to a close with the editing and the screening of the movies. Each step of the process will be supervised and we will use scenes from various ﬁlms to feed our imagination and analyse the strenghth of an image in terms of story telling. Required reading : None.
Pedagogical Method : At the end of the course, the student is expected -to be able to analyse a scene of a ﬁlm, -to understand the speciﬁcity of ﬁlm language -to have a better understanding of the history of cinema. Each class will begin with the screening of a scene. One student has prepared an analysis of the sequence and presents it to the class. All students have watched the ﬁlm before the session. The analysis is then discussed within the class and the movie is then placed in its context and becomes the support for a study of a stage of cinema history. Course Description : Cinema is a language with images and sounds. The goal of this workshop is to give students a closer acquaintance of the grammar of ﬁlmmaking, and its evolution throughout history. With the study of one ﬁlm per decade from today to the early age of cinema, the course will take a twelve-step journey backward through the history of cinema and its various territories. Required reading : to be deﬁned.
