FM5103: Film Technologies and Aesthetics

This module surveys the history of various cinema technologies. Particular attention will be given to the ways in which the emergence of new technologies – such as sound, colour, cameras and camera mounts, varying screen dimensions, and lighting systems – affect aesthetic issues in global cinemas. By taking a global perspective, the module aims to engage these issues in ways that address the cultural and economic conditions that affect and are affected by the adoption of new technologies. The specific technologies addressed in the module may vary over semesters, and in some semesters the focus may be on a single film technology and in others it may take a comparative approach.
