The Cambridge Academy's cinema history course will give students an introduction to the art form, elements of the medium, film-making theory, a study of film genres, and a history of the evolution of film. Cinema History 6-12 will teach homeschoolers how to appreciate and critique movies as well as understand how leaps in technology, such as color, sound, and distribution, have affected the way we understand films. Homeschoolers will love learning about their favorite movies while gaining the ability to place each film in a socio-cultural context. We will round out the study with a lesson in how films are written, produced, directed, and edited.
