Course Outline

The SIS IB Film Studies course is at least partly designed by you, as we hope that the adoption of an independent approach to the course will provide classes with chances to opt for texts and indeed whole genres of study, whilst maintaining an overall set of parameters within which to work. Wherever possible we provide you with options. The 2008/09 course outline looked something like this for Y12:

TERM 1: Film Language, Genre & Editing

TERM 2 (Before CNY): Reality, New Waves & Scriptwriting

TERM 2 (After CNY) Film Narrative, Post Modernism & Authorship

TERM 3: The Film Medium: Image and Sound

TERM 4 Cinematography, Hong Kong Cinema & The Independent Study

TERM 5 The Presentation & The Production
