1:1 The cinema of attractions
Transcript of 1:1 The cinema of attractions
The seminar environment is designed to allow you to explore issues raised on the module. We encourage you to think about the seminar as an informal environment where ideas can grow and develop and where accuracy is less important than energy and enthusiasm. However, in order for the seminars to work you must do the basic reading. We will be strict about this.
Introduction and icebreaker: break into pairs and introduce yourselves. Pick a film you like and say why you like it. Share your names/films with the rest of the group.
Concepts and History
Edison Kinetoscope films, 1894-1899
Lumière films, 1895-1897
Thinking about and studying film at university will involve high-level conceptual reasoning and the acquisition of in-depth knowledge about the cinema and its various histories, movements, and possibilities. This is a journey that will require you to become a clever, knowledgeable person, and (if you plan to make films) a more creative and successful practitioner. Concepts and History is the first stage on this journey.
Compare and contrast an Edison film and a Lumiere film (see following slides); can a difference between US and European cinema be glimpsed here?
Who is this person? What is his significance to the early cinema?
Do you have any questions related to the following slides (these are taken from the lecture; remember - you can zoom in and out for a closer look)? In class you may be asked to state how each of these images illustrates a key stage in the development of early cinema?
Sandow the Strongman (1894)
Baby’s Lunch, 1895
