The Cinematic Place
Spring 2024
Taught By: Jem Cohen
Section: A

CRN: 10761

Credits: 3

All films, whether narrative, documentary or visionary, take place. In mainstream film, that space is often subsumed by plot or dramatic arc -- the prevailing needs of the dramatic narrative system. However, the purpose of this production course is to give pride of place, so to speak, to the cinematic power and value of place itself: to create an atmosphere in which we make films which regard place, space and locale as subjects in their own right, not merely as background or backdrop. Students will make individual short works that express their sense of a specific place in time through the camera eye.

Pre-Requisite: Media Practices: Digital Video Production (NMDS 5428) or instructor permission. Media Studies courses are open to all graduate students. Undergraduate Juniors and Seniors with permission from the instructor and BA/MA Media studies students should email mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu for access.
