The failure of verbal descriptions to convey an understanding of film terminology led to a student production of a 20-minute color film that defines various film methods by illustrating them. A technique is shown on the screen and simultaneous soundtrack narration explains how this technique can be used. When the narration lasts longer than the illustration, random patterns continue the visual stimulation until the narrator finishes his remarks. A 3-minute experimental segment accompanied by a jazz soundtrack concludes the film. This segment encourages the students to utilize the cinematic terms and techniques, and also attempts to make them realize that they have not completely mastered the forms of film media. (LH)
