Does every film have/should(?) its own style? It has its own identity.
From The Wild Strawberries to 8.5 -- http://film.vtheatre.net/doc/8.5.html
Subjective (chronotope) narrative is related to hero/character's POV.
Citizen Kane (mise and camera) -- compare with Bergman's.
Start with http://film.vtheatre.net/doc/godfather.html
to post @ http://google.com/group/filmstudy
I thought that one page (Bergman, Tarkovsky, etc.) would be enough... But "what/which" "Bergman"?
... and I have to break "it" into topics, subjects, issues, themes !
New directory, directories?
Bergman. Title(s) -- Wild Strawberries -- what angle? Craft, Art, Theory?
And how to teach it -- Analysis, Directing ...
This process is visible at http://film.vtheatre.net
Subdirectories : I * II * III [Craft : Movies * Art : Film * Theory : Film-Philosophy]
+ doc files (docments) = titles, mostly.
forms (another directory) ... and now VIDEO !
I try to use institutional/comercial services : amazon, google, questia (lists and listing, references, biblio, books) and web 2.0 -- for linking, and etc.
webmaster, I have no time for real webpages.
FM = filmmaking (new) directory 08
film-making (video directory) -- http://film.vtheatre.net/video
updating class pages for Wed.
new textbook -- Film Art
Note (not for students):
I am to teach two classes : Dramatic Literature and Film and Movies...
I am writing (finally) http://afronord.tripod.com/600/0.html
600 Files (new, idiopedia) -- finally, because I think I found the "form" : this is a book, which Guildenstern is writing for Rosencrantz (R/G are Dead, Spring 2008 show I direct).
Dramatic Literature is WORDS, Film analysis -- translation of the human language, as we knew it into PIX (youtubers).
And this is the Postmodern transition (we are too much inside to understand the gravity of the changes).
The humanity spent so much energy on developing "human" feelings (intellectual class property)... and now it's public property.
Theatre is for a few, movies -- for all. Poetry for All?
Something to think, while teaching.
new groups at slideshare and -- slideshare.net/group/film
... if only I can remember all the new services I am signing to each day!
* nice embed codes for my webpages.
film.vtheatre.net (Fall class), but I am placing the new stuff at director.vtheatre.net (new FM, filmmaking directory).
Outline of each lesson ("lessons" pages in subdirectories) to put online?
Film Art (textbook) has the website, but how to add my notes to it?
I want to build pages which will stay alive 10 years from now. System, system!
