Did any of you ever take Film History when you were in college? I did and I absolutely loved it.
Please link to your favorite film school films.
At San Jose State, where I went to college, we had to pass Film History I and II as core requirements for my Theater Arts: RTVF (Radio, TV, & Film) major.
I think most film students in classes like Prof. Chess' Film History I, you see the earliest examples films—all silent, such as:
"The Great Train Robbery" by Edwin S. Porter (1903).
Here's another silent era film school classic:
A Trip to the Moon - the 1902 Science Fiction Film by Georges Méliès
Sadly Kevin I didn't get to film school!
I'm sure while I'm sitting at home now I could find one online 🙂
I have always been a fan of Hitchcock and his film Rope.
It's notable for only having 10 cuts, long before the recent 1917 or Birdman made hiding cuts popular
( and finding them )
I always loved Rear Window and love the love and dedication put into this piece.
Did you spot Hitchs cameo?
