This is a film project for my silent cinema class. The goal for the film project--by way of cinematic devices and by using film as a form of language--is to show my understanding of the silent film era by making a silent film. The criteria includes that the short film directly reflects or imitates a filmmaking style, genre, or technique from the 1910s or 1920s. Also that the film have a running time of between 10 and 15 minutes. For this project I will be collaborating with another fellow student from the class, Justin Way. Our short film will reflect that of the style of German Expressionism. Therefore the need for lighting is crucial for our assignment.
