This is a response paper to the chapter “Film Form and Narrative” from the book “Introduction to Film Studies” by Alan Rowe and Paul Wells for my Advanced Film Theory and Criticism class.
Before the dawn of non-linear editing suites where filmmakers started using computer software such as Avid, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, and Sony Vegas, editors use the Moviola or the Steenbeck, now referred to as “old school film editing machines.”
I couldn’t agree more when someone said that more woman filmmakers should be included in the syllabi of academicians, whether in major subjects of film students or any related media subjects and electives, especially those of mass communication and communication arts students. Academic papers, journals, books, and even blogs and vlogs that are easily accessible by everyone, should be able to find many female names to feature.
I was invited as the facilitator/consultant for the film and photography part of the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Workshop on the Development of the Technical Specifications for Special Program in the Arts (SPA) and Senior High School (SHS) Arts and Design Track at the BSP Hotel Jamboree in Makiling, Los Banos, Laguna this March 2017.
