Deconstructing cinema one frame at a time

Philosophy

My aim is to use cinema as a response to conventional research by combining practice with theory. I believe film studies is first a theoretical, reductive method and the second a utilitarian, constructive corollary, a separation Sergei Eisenstein implies when he refers to the speculative/practical dichotomy between research and pedagogy, and cinema as practice and theory. I feel close readings of film can be streamlined to better explain and elucidate a filmmaker’s intent through frame-by-frame analyses and deconstruction in cinema and media, in the process hopefully better bridging this boundary between race and representation, research and pedagogy, and cinema as practice and theory.
