The original video in that channel has a redearth88 tag for almost no reason:
So if you are watching this, good job! You found the youtube account where you will be uploading your video projects for the next couple of weeks.
I have forwarded everyone the user information to their WebCT email accounts (this will also be where your grades will be posted).
The second video has the title "keep the camera on" which is 15/15's line
keep the camera on - introductiontofilm
So this is my first video entry, and I hope it is going to get a bit better than this. It's pretty raw... but hey, I guess that's why I'm a student.
Note: giddeanx found the channel and posted it earlier this week
Course Information 2007-2008 Fall/Winter Session
FILM 1000 Introduction to Film Studies
Instructor José Sanchez
FILM1000 “Introduction to Film Studies” is the only Film Studies course offered in first year at Carleton University. It is offered by the Film Studies Program, one of the three Programs within the School for Studies in Art and Culture. (The School’s other two Programs are Music and Art History). Students may pursue a B.A General or a B.A. Honours in Film Studies. Many students take Film Studies courses as options within other degree Programs.
This course is organized as an introduction to the different ways in which films may be studied. We pay particular attention to questions of form, style and critical method. The objectives of the course are to familiarize students with the vocabulary and concerns of cinema studies and to survey three overlapping areas of inquiry: film as art, the aesthetics of film form and film as a social practice. While there is obviously a historical dimension to the course, we do not follow a strictly historical chronology in the presentation of films or issues.
The course is divided into four units. Unit 1, “Style and Technique,” introduces students to the basic elements of cinema as an artistic and communicative form. During Unit 2, “The Filmmaker,” we will look at the problems and advantages of analyzing films in terms of the creative personality of the director as Auteur. This year we will examine three different filmmakers. Unit 3, “Film Genres,” looks at generic categories as a way of classifying films and examines particular genres. This year the genres examined are the Romantic Comedy and the Horror Film. Finally, Unit 4, “A Period in Film History,” focuses on specific movements within film history. This year we will look at Contemporary Québec Cinema
Each section of the course will be examined separately by In-Class Test and/or Out-of-Class Essay and/or Formal Exam. During the discussion groups there will be surprise pop-quizzes on the readings and the films or written exercises aimed to improve essay writing. Attendance and participation are compulsory and will be evaluated as part of the final grade.
CAVEAT: Films screened in this course may contain disturbing images and sounds. In order to conduct valid film analyses, students must be able to adopt a critical distance vis-à-vis audiovisual material that might be unsettling or shocking. Individuals who are unable or unwilling to adopt such critical distance should not take this Film Studies course.
HOPEFULSEMBLANCE'S THOUGHTS (OOG?)- Note that this the the ONLY class being offered for freshman. 1000 C as a course number (as noted in the YouTube profile) normally indicates that there's AT LEAST three seperate times that this class takes place (A schedule, B schedule, C schedule, etc).
The course information listed makes it sound more like it's a film critique class, not a film making class.
There's no records of any Lisa Dobie at the school. Most universities have record of their TA's.
I'll keep looking into this...
