Hulu Summer Film School Course Syllabus

August 5th, 2014 by Kelly Lin

Whether they’re transporting us into a world of fantasy or revealing a deeper truth of our present moment, great films have a way of touching our hearts and changing how we look at the world. Using elements such as sound, cinematography, and lighting, filmmakers are able to tell powerful stories and create moments that are unforgettable. This summer, we’ll be examining these elements of filmmaking through some of the films that employ them best.

    I don’t know if it updates at a later time but the link to summer film school is showing Color Theory and Lighting, which I think was last week’s topic. I don’t see the content related to Soundtrack, Score, and Sound Design yet.
