About the Course:


Christopher Nolan is one of, if not the most influential filmmaker of the 21st century. With 8 wide release feature films that have not only come upon critical success, but massive financial success as well, Nolan’s impact has breached the boundaries of cinema and can be felt in mainstream culture. In this course, we hope to look at just what sets Nolan apart. From dissecting each of his films to analyzing his writing and directorial style to understanding his position as a brand in and of himself, students will come out of this course mainly with a full picture of Christopher Nolan as a filmmaker, but also with some insight into theories and concepts of film, filmmaking, and the film industry.

How to Enroll:

Since we will be starting the first week of classes, there will be an application you must fill out to be considered for admission. The deadline to fill out the application is January 13th, about 1 weekbefore classes, and students will be notified if they have been accepted or not by January 15th, one week before class. Under certain circumstances, the application may reopen after the deadline.
