ENG 246 - Introduction to Film

(3 Credits)

This course is an introduction to American film and culture. Students will explore the ways Hollywood films are produced, the way they look, and the way they tell stories. In examining these elements - modes of production, stylistic and aesthetic devices, narrative forms, and themes - students will review how the production of American films has become systematized into a set of well-established genres. By looking at various genres in different historical contexts, students will examine the broader American culture that Hollywood both reflects and produces.
