Moving pictures began with an idea to take entertainment beyond the adage of a static picture being worth a thousand words.  Such desire gave rise to the art and science of Cinematography.  Today, we take for granted that news, entertainment, practical instruction, and creative communication are all delivered to us in video format.  Join Dr. Roger Koment this summer in this six lecture series as he examines the origins and evolution of moving pictures as our most powerful form of modern entertainment. The classes are as follows in subsequent order: History of Moving Pictures, Talking Motion Pictures, Filming in Technicolor, 3D to CGI Technology, Pioneers in Cinematography, and Movie Epics.
