Description: Moving images recorded on analog film defined the 20th century in an unprecedented way. This course focuses on the tangible object that is the source of the image onscreen, and the social, cultural, and historical value of a reel of film as an organic element with a finite life cycle. We focus on the analog photographic element and its origins (both theatrical and small gauge), the basics of photochemical film technology, and film conservation and preservation. Guest lectures by staff of the Moving Image Department of George Eastman Museum provide a first-hand look at analog film and its preservation in action, allowing us to consider it as an ephemeral form of material culture: a multipurpose, visual record that is in addition to being art, entertainment, and evidentiary document, also an historical artifact. There are weekly film assignments. Class meets at George Eastman Museum and on River Campus (transportation provided).
