Charms that soothe : classical music and the narrative film by Dean W Duncan( )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[Book title] explores two major areas of interest. First, [author] examines the historical, social, and critical contexts of the debates between music advocates and the music establishment over the uses of serious music in cinema. Next, he elaborates a model for understanding the relationship of film to film music: as film-musical counterpoint, expressed in the Soviet cinematic avant-garde, and as an essential programmatic component to the narrative film."--Back cover

Stories of childhood : evolving portrayals in books and films by Dean W Duncan( )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study questions the widely held perception that books' criticism of both the big and small screens often obscures their signal accomplishments and the entertainment and insight they provide. The author analyzes our distaste for these media. A broad survey of film and TV offerings explores what enacted narratives have taught us about the nature of childhood"--

Landmarks of early film( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To study where we've been is to better understand where we are, but early film is not of interest only because it illuminates present practices. Beyond considerable historical interest, the material collected here provides immense pleasure on its own terms. These are old films, and they are influential films. But beond that, the bottom line is that they are sonderful films, rewarding our close attention with great enjoyments."--Container
Classical music in narrative film : strategies for use and analysis by Dean W Duncan( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Media lost and found by Erik Barnouw( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This selection of essays chronicles "the phenomenon of old media giving way to new, and then being replaced by them, as the ghosts of old media rise in new forms." The sixteenth century will introduce us to early stirrings of photography, as well as the rise of "black lists." The collection begins with an article on documentary film pioneer Robert Flaherty. Barnouw then discusses his Dutch heritage and its role in Western civilization. This is followed by fascinating accounts of ingenious pioneers of camera obscura and magic lantern phantasmagoria, precursors of the magic of motion pictures; an informative brief history of communications breakthroughs; and an examination of the foibles of media censorship. The final articles discuss the importance of Indian filmmaker Satyajit Ray and cinematographer Boris Kaufman

Landmarks of early film( Visual )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A compilation of the very earliest films from the first projections of moving images to the advent of the feature film, an area of film history often underseen, underappreciated and understudied. 40 films made in the early days of the medium are included in this collection. All films are mastered at correct speeds from excellent source material with new musical scores. Many of the films in this collection have been transferred to video from 35mm original prints (with a couple apparently taken from Library of Congress paper prints). The clarity on some of the films is striking. [Quelle: www.kanopy.com]
