    In todays culture, moving images circulate across platforms and screens; film, television, and video shape our lives in a variety of ways. They persuade, entertain, educate, and distract us. In this seminar, students will learn to critically analyze moving images through making. The course will introduce students to the history of media production and study with screenings and readings that highlight the range of approaches to the organization and reception of media work. The seminar is organized into practical workshops and discussions. Assignments will require students to develop their reading and writing skills in addition to learning the basic principles of documentary, narrative, and experimental filmmaking including scriptwriting, interviewing, cinematography, editing, and distribution tools.

      Course Description
    There is a fee associated with this course. The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
