Film & Video Directing (Spring 2004): textbook Grammar of the Film Language by Daniel Arijon
^ The Shrew Film Directing "showcase" ^
Filmmaking is a practical science, because it is art -- you have to practice it. Did I say "art"? I did. That means that besides and beyond the profession there is a way of living, experiencing life as a filmmaker.
The problem with any art is not the knowledge, but its applications. You can learn how to position the camera, you can see how otrhers do it, but the shot you want to get is YOURS, and everything in front of you is unique.
Well, that is why you should learn how to function as a filmmaker all the time. Learn to notice, to remember, to collect images. Learn to imagine things! "Shooting" is only a small part of this process of being a filmmaker.
Forget about the shots, angles, composition -- think about how it all will be played in my mind. Ah, you do not know me! It's not true, you do know me -- I am like you, if you know how to be a spectator.
Being a filmmaker is getting another, NEW identity. Another persona, which you have to give birth to.

Film Acting Pages: actors
2004: I do not know when I will have time to write about "acting in movies" -- here is a short list of actors I refer to in Film Analysis class.
Acting is a part of "mise-en-scene" in many textbooks (need definition).
Maybe I will put my comments to the titles and actors later. Anatoly
PS. Watch the movies on your own, we don't do in class.
There are other movies with Jack Nocholson could be recommended (use Amazon suggestions).
[ I am not mentioning European film actors here. ]
See Acting I, II, III and Film Directing pages.
[ long list @ film.vtheatre.net ]
I have no pages on individual actors. Only film directors -- Eisenstein, Tarkovsky, Bergman, Kurosawa, Fellini (Film-North).
