Jason Daley is co-teaching a film studies class as part of his senior project. In his own words:
For my senior project I am studying film. Film has been a passion of mine since I was young, which has made this project very enjoyable. Some of my favorite films are Blade Runner, 2001 a Space Odyssey, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Thing, and Taxi Driver. This semester I have been Christine’s teacher assistant for the film class. Christine has given me the task of finding movie clips that relate to the topics we are covering in the class. Recently I threw together clips involving different kinds of film edits, and talked to the class briefly about each edit. The class has been going very well so far.
I recently went to the museum of the moving image in NYC. The museum has a 2001 A Space Odyssey exhibit with models and costumes from the movie. Stanley Kubrick, who directed 2001 A Space Odyssey, has always been a director who has fascinated me. Here’s some pictures I have taken at the Museum of the moving image.
