We’ve been talking about the movies this week in my media literacy class, and I’ve shown a range of video clips, but there are even more clips that I haven’t had time to show. So here are links to a host of links on the movies for you:
- Silent Movies
Links to a host of silent movie examples from animations of Muybridge images to Edison kinetoscope films, to Edwin Porter’s The Great Train Robbery. Oh yes, and it includes a link to Thomas Edison’s seminal funny cats video – his 1894 film Boxing Cats.
- Martin Scorsese’s 2013 National Endowment or the Humanities Jefferson Lecture
Watch one of our great directors talk about the history of film. Really fascinating!
- Everyone’s Gone to the Movies
Links to several examples, including the birth of sound, a pre-code movie clip, and example from the code era, and a trailer for Midnight Cowboy.
- All my posts on movies
Here’s a link to every post I’ve done that’s tagged as being connected to the Ch. 8 – the Movies.
