anyone here have a cinema degree?

Hi
someone here learned from giannetti's book "understanding movies"?
putting his citizen kane chapter aside, do you have a film that could demonstrate all the terms from the book? (preferably "the godfather" and/or "annie hall". preferably if you could demonstrate all the terms in 1-2 sequences from the films).
that could help a lot
thanks

Re: anyone here have a cinema degree?

This is a book I'm 95 percent certain I read in college.......26 years ago. If it's the book I think it is, it had----and may still have-----a section on TOUCH OF EVIL. I majored in English and minored in RTVF. While I learned a hell of a lot from my film courses, I won't pretend to remember all of Giamatti's terms in his book. But I'll bet he mentioned mise-en-scene as well as assorted approaches to film shooting, narrative and techniques involved for specific classic films. If you want to list some of the terms your edition has, I could most likely apply them to THE GODFATHER......

......though it's worth noting other films, whether drama or escapism, can probably be adapted to Giamatti's terms.

Are you asking people to do your homework?

Can the terms be listed here? Then the definitions could possibly come back to us.

No, but I am widely acknowledged to be one of the Internet's leading experts on film. What is your specific question, fellow traveler?

As am me. I. Whatever. I know where the longest sustained scream in film history is, plus other uselessly good stuff.

here are all the terms
http://www.slideshare.net/lvterry/understanding-movies
it's not problem to find specific examples for each term, but i need as much terms the i can find, in one scene/shot... & that is the problem.

I didn't get a film degree but took several film classes. I've read that book and written a similar paper. I'm a John Ford Fanatic, so I wrote mine based around Stagecoach. It's been a long time though, I can't really remember the details.

Re: anyone here have a cinema degree?

I have "Film as Literature" and "Shakespeare in Film." I wrote about Casablanca, A Midsummer Night's Dream (Kevin Klein version), and Sunset Boulevard. Now, Sunset Boulevard can provide a lot of fodder for an essay, though maybe less regarding photography than other films.

I still haven't seen The Godfather. I should get around to seeing it someday. I did do some research on the cinema of Chuck Norris. That man doesn't get enough credit.

I agree totally. I only had to see MISSING IN ACTION II: THE BEGINNING once. When he said ''Back off, mister,'' they should've given him 1985's Best Actor award then and there.
