Week 3 Handouts: Bolex H-16 Refelex Camera

Bolex H-16 Reflex Camera


Week 3 | Blackboard Assignment

Please continue with the discussions.


There is a new discussion entitled ARRIFLEX SR AND BOLEX H-16R CAMERAS. Please participate.

Although I am very impressed with the currently ongoing discussions in CITIZEN KANE and VISUAL STORYTELLING METHODS, we could have much better participation in all forums.

Your participation will help improve the “Class Participation” part of your grade…but, even more importantly, it will keep you thinking about course content and make you more adept at problem solving when we begin shooting.

For those of you who have not yet done so, please locate in Film / Video, the CITIZEN KANE clips and their corresponding Filmstrips. Under the video clips, I ask some questions and ask you to provide your thoughts with regard to specific frames in the Filmstrips. After doing that, expand the discussion with your own research and speculation about those details.

Also, if you have not yet done so, find the link in the film/video catagory to the 1926 F.W. Murnau production of FAUST, view the entire film and contribute to a group discussion on the subject of its visual atmospheres.

This week’s film is F.W. Murnau’s SUNRISE: A SONG OF TWO HUMANS. Watch it and participate in the group discussion. For reference, please review last week’s lecture notes.

Please don’t hesitate to express your inability to understand something, especially with regard to the more technical items we are covering…but also with the aesthetics. Others will help you with that in these forums.
