Chris Weeg, Comp. Lit./ Linguistics
I plan to make a short video of a dance I am coreographing. I'm using dancers and boughs of foliage to create a Busby Berkley-esque extravaganza in my backyard. I am involved with cinema studies at the UW because I am interested in the scholarship of film, and also becasue I want to learn about filmmaking. Creating this video will bear into the light of day some of the theoretical knowledge embedded in my imagination, plus hands-on experience will (one would suppose) enrich my scholarly understanding of cinema.
