MES 140 - Introduction to the Moving Image

Introduction to the Moving Image gives students an introductory grounding in the history, aesthetics, and critical theory of narrative and non-narrative motion pictures, television, and animation. Students will gain a global perspective of how moving image works evolved from the birth of cinema to the current multiplicity of screens and screen works; special attention will be drawn to the theoretical and practical techniques unique to moving images and the tension between the media's apparent "realism" and the manipulations required to achieve it.
