Making Movies: How & Why
with Mark Lundsten
When you first saw Casablanca, or The Graduate, or On the Waterfront, images and dialogue stamped into your memory. For years, you have been able to see those scenes and quote from them. When you watch one of those movies again, it sweeps you away. Why is that, and how do filmmakers do it? You’ll find out, with multiple examples shown each class. (3 weeks: 1/30, 2/6, 2/13)
