2008 -- I do not think I will be teaching this class again. I am thinking about not teaching at all (retirement).
I do not know if I have time or interest in completing those notes for classes.
Theory - yes. Two projects I want to continue to work on -- POV and Film600
Film Analysis -- Fall'08 (last course) is at film.vtheatre.net
Summer project -- New Russian Cinema [ru]

THR332 Video directing fundamentals (new)
Originally, I was organizing the "class narrative" from the syllabus: you open a new window and could see the links in our schedule week-by-week, but this structure isn't good for you, virtual students of film. So, I have to build a new directory (this one), to have some continuity outside of the actual classroom. In short, it is a step to an online textbook, which I didn't plan to write. I hope it will help me to teach.
Watch the top left corner of the pages, the apparatus of navigation!

SummaryKids, I know that you love movies. I understand that you want to learn more about films. But there is a difference between what we want and what we can do. I would love to update the pages of this directory, but I have no time to do it. 2003
NotesI hope that the webpages could help you and me, because our 2004 textbook is "camera-oriented" (nothing about production cycles, acting, writing). You should read the pages -- and must continue to work on them.

If you read Title page, you know that this directory is to assist my THR470 Film & Video Directing class. Every time I teach it, I change it.[ list on movies and films (segments) to show in class: see film.vtheatre.net -- things you must do on your own (watch the entire movies). ]This is why I need those webpages, my friends. To be organized!It doesn't really matter when you do your film studies, before, during or after you shot your first movie. Usually, you do it before, during and after... How much can you learn about color and sound without shooting your own film? It will be a knowledge of color and sound in Kurosawa or Tarkovsky...
I ruled out the online teaching, the web is only to support LIVE class. Who knows how long will it take to get to virtual teaching. No, it's not the question of technology, no -- the problem is the content. So, I have to take it step-by-step.
What do I mean?
You are welcome to be a part of the actual class, but if you want to take it for a credit, you should write to our UAF administration: CLA dean, admissions, president, God...
I do not know how the others do it. Even when I teach it on campus, I use smart classrooms or TV studio -- so, I wrote a basic budget for online Film Directing class (for myself). Two more live cameras (who will operate them -- not the students in class), the editor (to cut live)... You see, three people to pay. It could be my film majors, but they have to have $8/hour min. Do you want to know about the budget for live webcasting equipment? Thanks to DOD, we have the sixth bigest mainframe computer in USA (Russia and China across the water), but who will monitor the storage of the big digital files from the class?
Yes, kids, it's all about the money. If you want to make films, this issue will hunt you to your grave.
Think about it -- can the University of Alaska Fairbanks compete with the major film industry companies? Or the big corporation? They put their (training) online classes like crazy! IBM, MS, GM...
Hey, the good news: your children will have it and it will be very expensive. Good human things cost a lot. The real great things are for free.
Yes, you must learn how Kurosawa works with color; save yourself time, study masters! And in addition, study color with Rafael, read Tolstoy, see great shows, study Mozart... because you about to discover your own sense of color and sound. You have to teach yourself how YOU feel color and sound -- and nobody can do for, you yourself only!
Usually, it takes the whole life...
