Course Spotlight: Introduction to Film

“Students develop a fuller appreciation of all the work and creative choices that go into making a film or TV show. (I believe a great film is a miracle.) These students gain tools that they can use in their personal viewing for the rest of their lives—and to impress (or annoy) their friends and family.”
