Section Description

FTS 122: The Crime Story in Film and Television: Theory and Praxis One of the most popular genres in film and television has been the Crime Story. This course will examine the history of the genre and its evolution through the study of key films, directors, and writers, including work by Scorsese, Coppola, Tarantino, Refn, and Elmore Leonard. Our examination of the Crime Story in the first two weeks of the course will focus on the genre's historic development and its formal and aesthetic conventions. In the final two weeks, we will write a short screenplay for a crime story and shoot a scene from the script. Students are not expected to have any prior film production experience.
