Film Authors: James Cameron and David Fincher - 10934 - FST 367 - 001

All students are expected to attend and participate in person at the assigned day/time. (F2F)

Pre- or co-requisite: FST 205

In this course, students study the directing styles of James Cameron and David Fincher, both of whom started their careers with an Alien saga film, to decide whether these two prolific filmmakers should be considered worthy of the designation “auteur” based upon their oeuvre of work. Cameron and Fincher show a propensity for auteurism with such qualities as their technical competence, personal style in the “look” of their movies, and approaches to interior meanings demonstrated in genres such as action/adventure movies, thrillers, and sci-fi. The innovations that they have contributed to the art of film also qualify them as masters of spectacle and aesthetics. Such virtuosity should be appreciated, and so we will determine whether they have proven themselves worthy to be counted among the greatest of film authors.
