This is the first major revision of my film studies course, combining the original Film Studies, Middle School/ PG Edition, and Super Duper Hybrid Edition into one, fully customizable set of slides and clips to serve the needs of any middle or high school film or media studies teacher. All video clips and Power Point files are now easily accessible (and downloadable) via a new website.
Here's what you get:
521 customizable slides accessible via a website and downloadable (your downbload is a PDF version, but the first slide contains the web link and password for the web-based materials).
210 film clips, accessible via a website and downloadable.
End of film discussion questions and end of unit quizzes.
A syllabus, final project, and sample calendar of lessons.
Topics include: camera distance, camera angles, the history of the movies, lighting and color, camera movement, film genres, movie musicals, horror films, composition, lenses and focus, film comedies, editing, film acting, sound design, auteur theory, and particular films (Modern Times, The Wizard of Oz, Singin' in the Rain, Rear Window, Rebel Without a Cause, The Graduate, Rear Window, Psycho, Some Like it Hot, Rocky, Raging Bull, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T., Empire of the Sun, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Brazil) directors, and movements in cinema.
This course is an appropriate length for an every day semester course or full year alternate day course. With a little creativity, you could probably use it for a full year (especially if you show all of the films that are discussed).
I know the price is high, but this was the result of countless hours of work, plus, think of how much easier the course will be to teach without having to juggle hundreds of DVDs! Buyers will also have access to all future updates or additions to the film clips.
As you can see from my Questions and Answers page, ratings, and reviews, teachers love my film units and are very happy with my customer service. I hope this makes you feel secure in your purchase.
Thanks for considering my unit!
