PERSPECTIVES OF ADVANCED AESTHETIC INTERPRETATION: THE MOVEMENT TOWARD IN PROGRESSIVE STYLISTIC BACK PEDDLING
The course will follow the movement of avant-garde throughout the silent film era beginning Hugo Magbauer’s breakthrough in creating cinema Dadaism after accidentally projecting a Ben Turpin film out of focus. Students will study the artistic effect of superimposition, optical dissolves and touching negatives with unclean fingers after eating a tuna sandwich. Course will include study on Helmut Kogginjwzk’s extensive experimentation with leader film as an artistic statement on the existence of God, and will be expected to give a critical analysis of Schönner Hedjviik’s sixty-four part anti-theorist Cinerama tone poem “In Desperation, My Canker Sores”. 2 Credits.
CINEMATOGRAPHY FOR THE BLIND
The Emergence of the darkened visual image: the history of the lightless (sometimes referred to, as first postulated by Petronius in ancient Greece as Ilostmymeterism, or later as developed into a modern aesthetic theory by Susan Sontag as Cinema Braille) camera in contemporary cinema marking a major emergence with the work of Gordon Willis and culminating in projection booths shutting down through lack of timely utility payments. Students will go through a rigorous twelve-part seminar on remembering to remove the lens cap and discussions on The Sundance Movement: Whether to Aim the Camera Toward the Action- Pro or Con? 1 Credit.
