Film 2: Genres & Styles

Film 2 is a highly collaborative track in which students expand their knowledge of film production and analysis by building on skills introduced in Film Production 1 through genre-based film work.

Each mod of this intermediate track will focus on skills relating to defined genres. The specific genres offered each year will rotate but may include film comedy, thriller/suspense, drama, music video, and documentary.

Each mod will culminate in a final film project and students will be expected to submit at least one project to a local film festival for external evaluation. Students are also expected to attend theatrical film screenings both on and off campus.

Students must take at least two mods of this course before moving to Advanced Film. Mods may be repeated with the instructor’s approval.

Min-Max Credit Hours: 1.0-3.0
