The second part of our interview with the famous & legendary Wolf 359 team is HERE! Today, Scott Higgins chats with Gabriel Urbina, Sarah Shachat, and Zach Valenti about everything BESIDES their new drama Time Bombs. This includes Spiderverse, their OTHER podcast No Bad Ideas, and their course Audio Fiction 101, which is available now. Give it a listen!
The CFILM podcast is back! This week, Scott and Jeanine sit down to discuss an old favorite: WC Field’s It’s a Gift (1934). This is part one of two; here, we discuss the film’s context, history, and costuming, and next time the two professors will give a running commentary as they watch the film.
If you want to be prepared for part two, the film is (delightfully) readily available online. Watch it at The Internet Archive, and then check back in for a rewatch.
Our four-part lecture series on Jaws comes to a conclusion with Marc Longenecker’s coverage of film auteurs. What makes a film auteur? How might we approach Steven Spielberg’s career? There’s a lot to unpack here, so get ready for another in-depth look at your favorite shark movie.
Check it out on our Soundcloud!
This week, CFILM continues its exploration of Jaws with Michael Slowik. Professor Slowik, whose body of work includes After the Silents: Hollywood Film Music in the Early Sound Era, 1926-1934, naturally tackles how the film uses sound. In particular, of course, he investigates that score, and how to approach soundtrack as a film scholar.
Welcome back to the Jawsverse! This week resumes our lecture series on the classic film. Scott Higgins discusses Jaws’ history, meeting film on its own terms, childhood trauma, Dutch elm disease, and of course, SHARK MOVIES.
The interminable wait is over– we’re back with the CFILM audio content you’ve been begging for! This week, Sadia Shepard and Scott Higgins discuss last year’s screening for the documentary filmmaking students. Shepard is teaching this freshman-level course again this year.
The CFILM podcast is back! Jane Goldenring talks about her experience as a producer and how film and TV have changed over the years.
