Cinematography

Friday, March 10, 2023, 10am
John and Jeanne Rowe Performance and Learning Center
Andrew J. Douglas, Ph.D., Deputy Director, Bryn Mawr Film Institute

Cinematography is an intriguing mixture of beauty and technology, of art and craft. Both the creative and technical facets of this expressive form will be discussed, using clips from such films as The Wizard of Oz (1939), Citizen Kane (1941) and North by Northwest (1959), among many others. Whether subtle or dynamic, filmmakers’ cinematographic choices are often meaningful, and we will discuss some of the ways the camera helps tell the story.

Sound

Monday, March 13, 2023, 10am
John and Jeanne Rowe Performance and Learning Center
Andrew J. Douglas, Ph.D., Deputy Director, Bryn Mawr Film Institute

Sound, in a manner similar to cinematography, is a complex combination of subjectivity and science, of art and craft. Due to its purely auditory nature, however, one key difference is that sound in cinema is both more difficult to analyze and more rarely considered. Featuring clips from The Jazz Singer (1927) and Singin’ in the Rain (1952), the lecture discusses the first step in overcoming such obstacles to a greater appreciation of sound in the movies.
