This would make a great topic unto it's own. Should we start a new thread before we get chastised for ruining this one? :)

<<<-- Originally posted by Dylan Couper : Well, Mouse7316 has expressed his desire to produce movies. If he is going into a course, as Docunomus says, that is strictly film appreciation, then it really isn't going to help him much if at all.

I didn't mean to say that there isn't a place for film appreciation, that would be foolish. My point is that if you go into a program like that hoping to come out with a working knowledge of how to produce a movie, you are going to be sorely dissapointed and will have wasted a lot of time and money. -->>>

I think this may be a case of not reading the course literature ahead of time before signing up.

Of couse taking a course in Film History or Film Theory will not teach someone the technical side of filmmaking...I hope noone believes that it would. I took a course last year called Montage Aesthetic...thinking that it would be a course teaching students the fundamentals of editing, many production students took the course...it turns out that it is a course that examines the subtle, and sometimes not so subtle, ability of telling a story and revealing character motivation and psychology through the use of cutting...now, I do believe that this course could be extremely insightful for future editors. However, anyone thinking that they would learn how to edit a movie, how to use linear or non-linear equipment, etc...was mistaken.

And thus, if our friend Mouse7316 wants to learn about making movies, he should take production, not History or Theory, which was my point.

I bet he isn't even reading this. :)

Yes, just to reiterate. Production for production. Theory for theory.
