CINE 500 - Narrative Strategies in Contemporary Film and Television

641 |Jeff Rush |T 6-8:40pm

We will look at a range of narrative choices that shape contemporary film and television stories. Some will serve as a baseline, representing styles that have recurred in Hollywood films over many years. Most, however, will represent variants, alternative approaches in contemporary works that challenge the conventions of the mainstream. We will concentrate on two things: variations in narrative strategies and the meaning/impact/resonance generated by these variations. Students may work in either critical or creative forms.
