100 Resources (Even More) for Filmmakers, Cinematographers, and Crew

Surely after I had found 100 Resources and then 100 More Resources, there wouldn’t be anything left. At least, that’s what I kept telling myself. But that’s the beautiful thing about the Internet and the film community — it’s growing and not slowing down anytime soon.

MIT's Free Online Film and Media Courses

One of the reasons I named this site No Film School is because I didn't think it made sense for me (and I'm not saying this is true for everyone) to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to go to film school. But what if one of the most respected universities in the country posted their film and media courses online, for free?

MIT's goal with the Comparative Media Studios program is: Script Magazine: Your Source for Film & TV Writing Techniques. FIPRESCI - Conciliation between the Mainstream and the Artistic. Ahmed El Sobky's name (the most hated producer by Egyptian intelligentsia) is emblazoned on the credits of a film participating in the main competition of Locarno International Film Festival, Yousry Nasrallah is using a sha'abi song (belonging to the working class) performed by famed singer Mahmoud El Lithy while a belly dancer next to him swirls around libidinously.

FIPRESCI - Conciliation between the Mainstream and the Artistic

Two phrases seemingly out of the ordinary, yet they better describe how we witnessed a peace treaty between art-house and mainstream cinema that created an enjoyable gem of a film. Brooks, Meadows and Lovely Faces is an alternative for unnecessary classifications. It uses the best of mainstream filmmaking (from stars to spices and melodramatic plotlines) to draw in the public without sinking into a bowl of banality. More Youthfulness… Less Theorizing.

Section 3: Place and Identity - The People, Place, and Space Reader

Anderson describes how race and class privilege infused the social production of space in late 19th-century Vancouver, Canada. Anderson’s work examines the variety of material and social practices through which both racialized space and constructed notions of racialized difference were produced and naturalized. Her research looks at how “Chinatowns” were fabricated in many cities by white Europeans and Anglo- Americans in the 19th century. She focuses her careful examination on Vancouver to detail how those in power delineated difference and limited people marked as other—in this case the Chinese population—through the spatializations of cultural norms and values.

This included labeling their cultural activities such as lodging, eating, gambling, and opium use as unsanitary or immoral, while refusing to extend sanitation services or employment to these communities. Sometimes identity and place are so tightly bound that it is hard to separate them. 50 documentaries you need to see.

10 Notable Filmmakers Who Work In Both Documentary & Fiction

With so many established narrative directors over the years turning their hand to documentaries, whether it’s “making of,” band documentaries, or passion projects that they use to create greater awareness of the issues that are closest to their hearts, it’s a well-trodden path. And while they’re treading that path, they get to wave at the men and women coming in the opposite direction: documentarians make the crossover into narrative just as frequently. CinemaArt. الرئيسية.

Through Her Eyes: Visuality and the Gaze in The Descent. Seminal: Kim Cattrall’s Ad for a Famous Butter Substitute Was a Powerful Détournement of the Male Gaze. At Flavorwire, we often pay attention to the new, but we make sure to do so not at the expense of what’s come before it.

Seminal: Kim Cattrall’s Ad for a Famous Butter Substitute Was a Powerful Détournement of the Male Gaze

In “Seminal,” a bi-weekly column, we examine earlier, under-acknowledged exemplars of dramatic mastery from revered actors’ careers — moments that should be described as, dare I say, seminal. This week, it’s the perennially sensual Kim Cattrall’s work spreading I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter on toast in a plea to get consumers to realize that “It’s Not Butter,” while deeply empathizing with their disbelief at that fact. Incidentally, among all that, she happens to hijack the male gaze.

Yet like many viewers who had read the source material, I nursed a nagging concern about where the show headed, based on the graphic turn the book takes towards the end. When would all the narrow escapes, the near-assaults and captures, turn at last into something inescapable and terrible? The answer came in the debut season’s final two episodes, which spared no detail in dramatizing a very intense rape and torture sequence between sadistic villain Black Jack Randall and our hero, Jamie Fraser.

Jacob T. Swinney on Vimeo. Notes on The Gaze. Daniel Chandler Laura Mulvey on film spectatorship Whilst these notes are concerned more generally with ‘the gaze’ in the mass media, the term originates in film theory and a brief discussion of its use in film theory is appropriate here. As Jonathan Schroeder notes, 'Film has been called an instrument of the male gaze, producing representations of women, the good life, and sexual fantasy from a male point of view' (Schroeder 1998, 208). The concept derives from a seminal article called ‘Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema’ by Laura Mulvey, a feminist film theorist. Avant-garde / Modernism / Postmodernism.

The thing about any long-running franchise is that certain images, ideas, and tropes become iconic. These parts become important to fans and are so recognizable that non-fans can identify the franchise or get a joke just from the reference. These iconic images not only define the character around which the direct reference revolves, but also the franchise itself. Fans and non-fans alike draw connections between iconic imagery or text and the source material within seconds of seeing the former. The third film in the franchise and based on Ian Fleming’s seventh James Bond novel, Goldfinger is rife with iconic moments. The craft of screenwriting, movies, Hollywood, and the creative life.

Francis Ford Coppola and Brian De Palma: 'The Conversation' Between Two Great Filmmakers. The most personal of all films in Francis Ford Coppola’s repertoire was born between two big projects that helped Coppola gain the reputation he enjoys today, the first two parts of The Godfather trilogy. Two huge, big-budgeted movies, and a tiny personal story filmed between them, but an expertly made film that captured the nation’s state of mind and emotion after the Watergate scandal. The Conversation, starring the great Gene Hackman, is a subtle and restrained film about a professional eavesdropper, lonely and alienated, who uses his nifty gadgets to invade the privacy of the people around him. Coppola began meddling with the idea in 1966, but the first draft was penned three years later, with the film hitting theaters as late as 1974. The impact it made at the box office was negligible, even though it was hardly a failure.
