The Science of Sci Fi Cinema Book Description :

Science fiction films present hypothetical futures, featuring imagined technological advancements--not yet realized but perhaps (more or less) plausible. Yet how much of what audiences see is within the bounds of possibility? Can we really envision what a black hole looks like? Can dinosaurs really be genetically re-engineered? Originating from an annual Science Fiction Film Series in Denver, Colorado, this volume of essays examines 10 films, with a focus on discerning the possible, the unlikely, and the purely science fictional. Co-written by a film professor and a scientist, chapters provide analyses of the movies themselves, along with examination of the actual science (or lack thereof) in each film....

Dreams on Film Book Description :

Films with dream sequences, or a dreamlike quality, allow directors to create their own rules of logic and nature to meet a variety of artistic needs. For instance, an opening dream immediately establishes what a character is feeling; a later dream—or series of them—provides viewers with a glimpse of the climax, and a concluding dream ties up loose ends. (In real life, of course, dreams do not occur at such convenient times or serve such useful purposes.) This book explores why science is lost or distorted in the process of representing dreams on film and why audiences prefer this figurative truth of art over the literal truth of science. Part One discusses changes in form and considers the history of dream theory. Additionally, the physiology of...

Film Art and the Third Culture Book Description :

The art of film was borne out of scientific discovery and technological innovation. Contemporary moving image media continue to be shaped and reshaped by scientifically-inspired innovations, as we see with the rise of digital cinema, 3D, and virtual reality. But now that we have film as an art form, do the sciences continue to play a role in understanding and explaining how films are made and experienced? Embracing a 'third cultural' approach which aims to gobeyond the 'two cultures' divide memorably identified by C. P. Snow, Murray Smith seeks to bring the arts, humanities and sciences together to illuminate artistic creation and aesthetic experience. In thefirst part of his book, Smith explores the general strategies and principles necessary to bui...

Film and Modern American Art Book Description :

Between the 1890s and the 1930s, movie going became an established feature of everyday life across America. Movies constituted an enormous visual data bank and changed the way artist and public alike interpreted images. This book explores modern painting as a response to, and an appropriation of, the aesthetic possibilities pried open by cinema from its invention until the outbreak of World War II, when both the art world and the film industry changed substantially. Artists were watching movies, filmmakers studied fine arts; the membrane between media was porous, allowing for fluid exchange. Each chapter focuses on a suite of films and paintings, broken down into facets and then reassembled to elucidate the distinctive art–film nexus at successive ...

Lab Coats in Hollywood Book Description :

How science consultants make movie science plausible, in films ranging from 2001: A Space Odyssey to Finding Nemo. Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, released in 1968, is perhaps the most scientifically accurate film ever produced. The film presented such a plausible, realistic vision of space flight that many moon hoax proponents believe that Kubrick staged the 1969 moon landing using the same studios and techniques. Kubrick's scientific verisimilitude in 2001 came courtesy of his science consultants—including two former NASA scientists—and the more than sixty-five companies, research organizations, and government agencies that offered technical advice. Although most filmmakers don't consult experts as extensively as Kubrick did, films ran...
