The course is designed to enable students understand the rudiments of directing; how to translate story telling into visual form. The emphasis is on the basic elements of directing. Students learn the basic knowledge on how to divide stories into sceneries and sequences; management of time and space; continuity; narrative flow; and so on. Major films across the world are shown so as to enlighten the students on cinema which gives them a deeper appreciation of movies. The difference between stage and film directing; as well as the practical aspects, will also be examined.
