Emma Watson studying at NYU during January term

[Version française]

Emma was at New York University from January 7 to January 25. (Brown's 2nd semester begins on 23 January).

There were obviously LOTS of tweets during that time. Thanks to one of them, we know she took the class "Film as literature".

Film as literature:
This course (different every time) introduces students to the specific choices that a director must make to transform the "printed word" into a visual auditory experience. For example, point of view becomes a challenge of camera shots; a described room becomes a matter of lighting, color, and sound; and the sense of time becomes a product of editing, rhythm, music, and splicing. Throughout the course, we pit a director's view against an author's view to examine how the same story may express different agendas, depending on the rendering. Works may include Euripides' Medea (Pasolini), Nabokov's Lolita (Kubrick), Tennessee Williams's A Streetcar Named Desire (Kazan), Paul Schrader's Taxi Driver (Scorsese), Virginia Woolf's Orlando (Potter), and Thomas Hardy's Tess (Polanski). Creative exercises required along with three five-page papers.
