Elective FILM studies course
FILM 3030 – Sci-Fi Film. The purpose of this hands-on course is to investigate and write movies in the Science Fiction genre from both the film audiences’ and filmmakers’ perspectives. Topics explored will include Sci-Fi's origins in Speculative Fiction, the classical era of Sci-Fi, and its crossovers into other genres as well as the study of how Sci-Fi shapes and is shaped by current events. Such an integrated approach between media studies (history & theory) and media preproduction (practice) will empower students to generate dynamic thought-provoking messages through their creation of properly formatted scripts that illustrate compelling Sci-Fi stories.
