Film: the creative eye by David A Sohn( Book )

8 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Short films are often experimental in nature. They can place aspects of the environment which are usually unnoticed in such a way as to sharpen our observations of the world, and "create a new awareness, a fuller sense of life and being." Based on the premise that visual literacy is becoming increasingly important, this book describes several films which attempt to serve this function under four sections: The observer and the creative spirit, which includes the films, "The Searching Eye" and "Why Man Creates;" a sharper vision, covering films such as "Leaf" and "Waters of Yosemite;" impression and compression, including the films "American Time Capsule" and "Deep Blue World;" and the poetry of awareness, with films such as "Moods of Surfing" and "Ski the Outer Limits." In each section, the discussion focuses on the films, beginning with an introductory statement on the film and then presenting a description of the action of the film, a list of suggestions for ways to approach thinking about the film after viewing it, a series of written reactions to the film, a brief statement on making the film, and, in some cases, an interview with the film's producer. A statement on the role of a film producer concludes the book. (Sh)

Greiner, William Kuhns, Hugh Gilmore, Richard Lacey, Richard Beach, and Ken Donelson. Essays deal with the educational impact of film in the classroom setting, the role of the teacher in maximizing the role of the film, teaching through films, and how films affect student involvement. In part two, individual short films are reviewed and summarized by David Sohn, Fred Marcus, Adele Stern, William Sloan, and Frank McLaughlin. In addition, Ralph Amelio discusses obtaining films and Carol Emmens focuses on locating alternative film distributors. The third part is devoted to articles about student filmmaking--discussions and suggested teaching techniques--by Paul Carrico, Rodney Sheratsky, Austin Repath, Charles Brauerman, Yvonne Anderson, Henry Putsch, and Russell Brasso.

Film study & the English teacher by David A Sohn( Book )

3 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite skepticism and differing opinions within the teaching profession about the value of screen education, instructional and "experiential" films can be made effective in English classes in a variety of ways. They can be used in comparisons of the strengths of various media; in the development of units on specific topics or themes; or simply as stimulants to discussion, reading, and writing. Movies shown at local theaters or on television can also be used as a basis for study. Moreover, students' understanding of the medium can be improved by the production of their own films. Teachers who decide to use films in the classroom must be prepared, however, to meet criticism from administrators or parents who may object to films as expensive and superfluous. (Js)

The problem & the promise : a television/video workshop by David A Sohn( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first portion of this handbook considers the positive aspects of television (the news, entertainment, and educational programming); presents negative criticism regarding programming quality, the use of violence, and the influence of commercials; and discusses the available options and alternatives for improving and using television to its fullest. The major portion of the handbook outlines a unit of study based on ten short films about television that cover the following areas: the history of television, television production and new technology, the grammar of television, live network production, news reporting, the production of commercials, commercials as art forms and vehicles for study, and experimental television. Intended as a visual beginning for examining the areas of television, the unit contains a description and photograph of each film, a brief dictionary of video terms, a number of cartoons about the television industry, a chronological list of milestones in the history of television, and resources on the television industry that include two annotated bibliographies (one of films and one of books) and lists of current magazine articles, periodical publications, and organizational resources.
