Minor: Film Studies
At Bryn Mawr: International Contemporary Film, American Attractions, History of Narrative Cinema, Film Theory, Screenwriting. At UPenn: Film/Video I, Film/Video II, and Advanced Video Projects.
I take classes at USC during the summer (Creating Poetic Images, Directing Actors for the Screen, and Breaking Into the Film Industry), and I am currently the set intern for the production of "Tenure" (2008, Mike Million).
I always knew I wanted film in my life, so it was very natural for me to become a film studies minor. I love how the program is integrated into so many other disciplines, and that it's constantly evolving.
I am the founder and president of the Bryn Mawr film society.
Absolutely. Film is my greatest passion, and I could never deny it a place in my future. I hope to attend graduate school for film production, perhaps right after Bryn Mawr, or maybe a year or two after. The ultimate goal is to found a crazy feminist filmmaking commune and end up as a legend in every major art history textbook, but I would be content directing a female coming-of-age story that doesn't involve pregnancy.
I haven't given my thesis much thought yet, but I would certainly prefer incorporating film. That could even make the thesis writing bearable!
Do it! Film has become so embedded in our society, it is now almost essential to be proficient in the language. If you are serious about film, I highly suggest taking Film/Video I at UPenn, as it will give you a deeper understanding and appreciation for the medium.BACK TO STUDENTS
