Cinema 101 - Introduction To Cinema

We all watch movies, but do we really understand them? In this discussion group, we look at the key terms of cinema, including mise-en-scène (what we see), cinematography (how we see it), sound (the accompanying audio), and editing (how elements are cut and arranged). Watch clips from classic films and have the chance to use some of these terms to speculate on the ideas or sensations the filmmakers are trying to convey. Join the conversation and appreciate movies in a whole new way.
