Good Looking: Film Studies, Short Films and Filmmaking.
Sohn, David A., Ed.
The articles in this volume have been selected from issues of "Media & Methods" of the past seven years. The first part of the book considers the problems and opportunities inherent in classroom film use, in articles by David A. Sohn, Charles F. Greiner, William Kuhns, Hugh Gilmore, Richard Lacey, Richard Beach, and Ken Donelson. Essays deal with the educational impact of film in the classroom setting, the role of the teacher in maximizing the role of the film, teaching through films, and how films affect student involvement. In part two, individual short films are reviewed and summarized by David Sohn, Fred Marcus, Adele Stern, William Sloan, and Frank McLaughlin. In addition, Ralph Amelio discusses obtaining films and Carol Emmens focuses on locating alternative film distributors. The third part is devoted to articles about student filmmaking--discussions and suggested teaching techniques--by Paul Carrico, Rodney Sheratsky, Austin Repath, Charles Brauerman, Yvonne Anderson, Henry Putsch, and Russell Brasso.
