FACULTY: JOHN BEEBE, MD and RICK BORUTTA
If filmmaking is a language of images, can the psyche communicate like a film? What can we learn from filmmaking that can be applied to our active imagination?
The most successful filmmaking techniques in Hollywood, CA developed in the early twentieth century centered around the persons or objects of significance in any image, much like a dream itself. These "rules" became known as the "Hollywood Style." Because these rules behave as a language and are employed in almost every film or video worldwide today, it can be useful to understand the technique when working with dreams. In this course, we plan to view scenes from classic films that exemplify commonly used techniques designed to lull the viewer into imagination. Participants will learn about how scenes are shot and edited to elicit specific emotional responses from viewers. Finally, we will discuss how to apply film-making techniques to dream interpretation so that meaning can be formed from the aspects of dreams that appear cinematic to the dreamer. We will screen scenes to interpret as if they were dreams and also storyboard dream material from the participants.
