Each week, students will use critical thinking to dive into a discussion about a new film and analyze the creative process. We go beyond blockbuster hits to appreciate cinema at all levels and genres - spanning over 100 years of film!

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
  • Students will be able to identify and analyze each film's message and theme. They will use critical thinking and peer discussion to critique the characters, plot, and overall success of the film. They will draw comparisons between the film and their own life experiences. Using my help and prior background production knowledge, they will understand basic box office statistics, learn about similar films that they may be interested in viewing, and gain behind the scenes knowledge on certain aspects of the production. They will learn to evaluate and enjoy films in a brand new way.
As a ten year veteran of the entertainment industry, and film afficionado, I have worked on over 30 productions in my career. I have made my own documentaries, worked inside a newsroom, and as production and development coordinator for the National Geographic Channel! Currently I work as a Production Manager for the largest film studio on the East Coast. My career has given me inside access to productions in all of their stages, and I am eager to share this information with my students.

Homework
Frequency: available upon request
Feedback: available upon request
Details: (Optional Assignment) Find another film created by the same director, producer, or screenwriter, and watch it. Compare that film to the one we discussed today. And as always, recommend this movie to the person you said would enjoy it at the end of class!
Students will be required to watch the movies prior to class. These movies should be available on a number of streaming platforms. I also include a running list of what movies to expect in the coming weeks, which gives families ample time to find and watch each movie. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Many movies that we watch will be rated PG13, and some may be rated R. Please feel free to review the movies ahead of time, or message me if there are any concerns. If you are not comfortable with your child watching a particular film, you are welcome to skip that week's class.
