Visualizing the 21st Century (Option)

In the 21st century we no longer believe that a single unified world can be visualized from a privileged position. Any sense of distance from the world has collapsed. We are conscious of living in a time of continual change and transformation as opposed to a state of equilibrium. After all, the early 21st century has been marked by rising urbanism, the movements of people, the crisis of global warming, the dominance of ever more complex logistical networks, the emergence of new cultures of speed, experiments with new modes of warfare, etc. This is a confusing situation – simultaneously liberating, exciting, anarchic and dangerous. We are traversed and overwhelmed by these affective forces. This innovative module, in which students collaborate to produce film essays, presents an opportunity to reassess aesthetic theories and practices – our modes of visualizing - in order to confront the conditions of the present.

Heroes and Villains in Film (Option)

Heroes and Villains in Film (Option)

An old adage decrees that a given society will get the heroes it deserves. A society based on armed conflict and violence, the argument runs, will in turn produce violent heroes. A civic society, on the other hand, will celebrate those heroes who are best able to enforce the law, by mastery of the spoken word, or by their wisdom and fairness. Examining the heroes of a given society, then, suggests a means of understanding the nature and importance of the culture which produces them.

This module examines a range of heroes produced by the twentieth and twenty-first century, and analyses their cultural context, their relationship to genre and provides a means by which we can understand the changing mores of audiences. Taking a range of heroes, antiheroes and villains from the western, science fiction, comic book superheroes and literary adaptations, we will examine heroic virtues, the sins of the villain, and the often confused interplay between the two, in order to arrive at a greater understanding of what makes a hero, why we need them, and how film has negotiated the need for men and women who somehow answer our unspoken prayers and desires.

Areas covered include, using sound during the edit, sound editing for factual and fiction productions, supplying audio files for the editing process, synchronising sound and picture rushes, audio tracklaying using Digital Audio Workstations (DAW’s) recording 'Foley sound', (the art of movement re-recording and using props for sound effects creation to picture), ADR (Automated Dialogue Replacement) and 'lip sync' to picture and music production are also covered, including composer spotting sessions and assessing musical requirements.

The roles of mixer, assistant and sound editor are explored, in relation to selecting and assembling sound recordings and different mixes in preparation for final sound production of a television programme, or film. Students can understand the distinctive relationship between location sound recordist, film and television editor and the creative sound post-production process. Upon completion students are expected to be well equipped to work with sound during a film edit session and enhance soundtracks with post-production skills.

Visualizing the 21st Century (Option)

Visualizing the 21st Century (Option)

In the 21st century we no longer believe that a single unified world can be visualized from a privileged position. Any sense of distance from the world has collapsed. We are conscious of living in a time of continual change and transformation as opposed to a state of equilibrium. After all, the early 21st century has been marked by rising urbanism, the movements of people, the crisis of global warming, the dominance of ever more complex logistical networks, the emergence of new cultures of speed, experiments with new modes of warfare, etc. This is a confusing situation – simultaneously liberating, exciting, anarchic and dangerous. We are traversed and overwhelmed by these affective forces. This innovative module, in which students collaborate to produce film essays, presents an opportunity to reassess aesthetic theories and practices – our modes of visualizing - in order to confront the conditions of the present.

Heroes and Villains in Film (Option)
Find out more

Heroes and Villains in Film (Option)

An old adage decrees that a given society will get the heroes it deserves. A society based on armed conflict and violence, the argument runs, will in turn produce violent heroes. A civic society, on the other hand, will celebrate those heroes who are best able to enforce the law, by mastery of the spoken word, or by their wisdom and fairness. Examining the heroes of a given society, then, suggests a means of understanding the nature and importance of the culture which produces them.

This module examines a range of heroes produced by the twentieth and twenty-first century, and analyses their cultural context, their relationship to genre and provides a means by which we can understand the changing mores of audiences. Taking a range of heroes, antiheroes and villains from the western, science fiction, comic book superheroes and literary adaptations, we will examine heroic virtues, the sins of the villain, and the often confused interplay between the two, in order to arrive at a greater understanding of what makes a hero, why we need them, and how film has negotiated the need for men and women who somehow answer our unspoken prayers and desires.

This module surveys and assesses a period that represents a break with a range of ideological, aesthetic and commercial traditions together with a process of retrenchment and recuperation.
