Exploring the film by William Kuhns( Book )

17 editions published between 1968 and 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of film study is defined here in the words of D. W. Griffiths: "My goal is above all to make you see." This book is intended to be used as a text in a film study course. It traces the development of films from a scientific curiosity through silent films to modern wide screen productions. A comic strip is used to demonstrate the effect of camera angles on the film's impact. The use of motion and sound are described in relation to their contribution to the film as a whole. A section on characters in films includes a discussion of "non-people characters," such as houses and landscapes. The differences and similarities between stage drama and drama on film are explained. The techniques of fiction films and documentaries are discussed, and the communication value of films is explored. The place of film criticism and relationship between films and television is covered. A final chapter gives "how-to-do-it" details for a student-made film. (Jy)

The mechanics of sound systems, editing, and titles, animations, and special effects are explained. A major part of the book concerns the making of a student film, "Sparrow." The filmmakers' diary of this film, from conception through production, is presented. Then three film teachers criticize the film, shot by shot, to point up the flaws in it.

Teaching in the dark; resource guide for Movies in America by William Kuhns( Book )

3 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A resource guide for a course in the history of American movies is presented. Although the guide is specifically intended for use with the text, "Movies in America" (em 010 853), the authors feel that it can be used to enhance any course in American film history regardless of the main text. The first section of the guide discusses the basic technical and administrative information necessary for getting a course going. The remainder allows the teacher to choose between two modes of instruction; the follow-the-book mode and the adaptation study mode. The book does not have discussion questions or lessons per se, but it does have a complete set of appendixes that include a film index, an annotated list of film sources, and a list of film periodicals, organizations and services.
