Deconstructing cinema one frame at a time


My aim is to use cinema as a response to conventional research by combining practice with theory. Film studies ultimately encompasses a binary approach: the first a pragmatic, utilitarian result from the pre and postfilmic events during film production, and the second, a theoretical, reductive method, a separation Sergei Eisenstein implies when he refers to the speculative/practical dichotomy between research and pedagogy. I feel film form analyses could be streamlined somewhat to better explicate frame-by-frame processes 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.
