Writing About Film I: Audiovisual Analysis is a workshop that seeks to introduce participants to the aesthetics of film and to prepare them to analytically interact with any given film text. Its aim is to survey the fundamental formal aspects of film, which constitute it as an art form. Furthermore, it seeks to introduce participants to the basic narrative, technical, and stylistic qualities and conventions of cinema, all considered within specific historical, cultural, and sociopolitical contexts.
The workshop facilitator, Patrick F. Campos, is a film/literary scholar, and a faculty member of the UP Film Institute, teaching courses such as Philippine Cinema, Language and Grammar of Film, Film Genres, and Film Theory and Criticism. He is currently the head of UPFI’s Theater Services and Extension programs and the director for its multimedia workshops. He is also an award-winning independent filmmaker, a freelance writer, and a musical scorer.
Writing About Film is part of the UPFI Extension program’s thrust of developing film literacy among Filipino audiences and of invigorating Philippine film cultures. The workshop is open to all participants, who are pursuing careers in film and its allied media, who desire to eventually go into film studies, or who simply want to enrich their movie-watching experiences.
