Catching The Tube - James Bond, Skyfall GIF - James Bond Skyfall Daniel  Craig - Discover & Share GIFs

This course examines the narrative structure of the thriller made famous in the cinema of Alfred Hitchcock. How does suspense function in various thrillers following in the vein of Hitchcock and its updated versions in recent cinema?  How do characters regain control and authorship in narratives that place them radically at a loss of control? Looking at subgenres such as the spy, conspiracy, crime, legal, psychological, action, and sci-fi thriller, we will try to understand the multifaceted possibilities of thrillers to confront audiences with a sense of loss of power, of larger and mysterious forces of history determining the fate of the individual, while also assuring them of their powerful position as spectators observing protagonists engaged in uninvited conflicts and struggles for survival. We will also ask how recent thrillers accommodate the expression of identity such as class, race, gender, and nationality as well as their intersectionality. Filmmakers in addition to Hitchcock (North by Northwest) will include David Fincher (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Christopher Nolan (Memento), Joanthan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs), Michael Mann (Collateral), Sam Mendes (Skyfall), and Coen Brothers (No Country for Old Men). This course requires intensive use of Canvas.

We will examine basic theories of film and their relationship to the practice of “close analysis.” How do film theorists discuss the experience of film, spectatorship, apparatus, and production in a variety of theoretical contexts and explore major film theories such as those of formalism, realism, auteurism, star/celebrity culture, gender, psychoanalysis, genre, race, cultural and media studies? Theories are meant to provide students with a vocabulary for close analysis of film and will stress the many ways of seeing and experiencing film. Our primary responsibility will be finding ways to speak and write about film and its significance as a complex aesthetic and social sign. Films discussed in class iinclude works by Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, Coen Brothers, Christopher Nolan, Ryan Coogler, Kathryn Bigelow, Lana and Lily Wachowski, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, Benny and Josh Safdie, Peter Jackson, and Alejandro Iñárritu.

Fall 2023 Detailed Description: 

Learn to make facts dance. By employing the imagery of a poet, the drama of a novelist, and the content drive of a journalist, we will craft vivid and compelling and maybe even publishable narratives based on your life and the lives of others. We will study and write both longform and flash, as well as digital and oral forms of CNF. For inspiration, we will read the masters such as Nikesh Shukla, Rebecca Skloot, Jerald Walker, Leslie Jamison, Joe Wilkins, and Jesmyn Ward.  In this class you will hone your storytelling skills, which transfer well to other forms of creative and academic writing, as well as career pursuits.

In this course, intermediate creative writers will learn the craft of writing scripts for film and television. Students will continue to explore the elements of effective storytelling by writing and significantly revising loglines, outlines, and complete short screenplays. The course will combine in-depth analysis of classic and contemporary screenplays (including shorts, teleplays, and feature-length films) with lectures, writing exercises, and peer workshops. Topics will include dramatic structure, professional formatting and planning, and how to develop vividly compelling characters, scenes, conflict and dialogue. The aim of the course will not be to simply reinforce existing narrative principles but rather to test the validity of existing conventions. Throughout we will address the questions: What makes a story relevant, moving, thrilling, or meaningful? Why does this story need to be told visually? What makes a great script great?
