Everyone did a great job this semester so I figured we should showcase everyone’s work here. Below you’ll find everyone’s project from this semester.
1. GOING BEHIND THE SCENES
Students looked at the technical wizardry behind filmmaking, looking at movie trailers, MPAA ratings, subbing & dubbing, and even hairstyles. Some films included in the following videos: The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Big Lebowski, X Men Days of Future Past, Slumdog Millionaire and Rambo.

2. THE CINEMATIC MIND
Cinema allows us to explore aspects of human psychology in visual ways. The following videos look at the various ways different states of mind are represented on screen. Some films included in the following videos: Vertigo, Midnight in Paris, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Shutter Island, Carrie, American Psycho and The Vow.

3. IT’S ALL THE SAME THING
The supercut is perhaps the clearest way we can show how some tropes, images and characters are constantly recycled by Hollywood. Take a look at the following videos which focus on some of the most egregious clichés in Disney and action/adventure films. Some films included in the following videos: Sleeping Beauty, The Matrix, Saturday Night Fever, Frozen, Bruce Almighty and Good Morning Vietnam.
