Crash Course Film History Preview

  • Added:  1 month ago
  • Beginning April 13th, join Craig Benzine (the internet's WheezyWaiter) for 16 weeks of Film History right here on Crash Course. He'll look at the history of one of our most powerful mediums. Film has the ability to communicate with images, entertain, move us, frighten us, and so much more. From A Trip to the Moon to Captain America: Civil War, the history of film is really a history of humanity and Craig will do his best to lead us all through it.

    Produced in collaboration with PBS Digital Studios:

    Will this be a more practical or scientific approach? Like just basic information about how movies came to be, technological innovations etc. Or more a sociological approach (e.g. university art studies etc.)? Will this explore the art of filmmaking or the art of film as a medium?

    Hey Crash Course, could you create a crash course on religions. I feel like a lot of people who dont understand other religions make precarious assumptions and I would like to know some of the basics of other religions to understand them better.

    I really hope this course doesn't take a purely American-European view to the history of film. As a film student, I am a bit sceptical that this is gonna oversimplify some complex ideas, haha but maybe the history majors thought that with crash course world history too.

      If you don't see a problem with this, you are the problem. The only reason I haven't given up hope on CC is because of Physics and Computer Science.

      Sure, because education on the most influential media of the last 100 years is "the bottom of the barrel". Why don't you go back into your oil painting, Adam Johnson?
