Film appreciation series
Alright I know it’s been a while but “Film Appreciation” is back with another episode and this time we’re looking at the transition to sound and the universal monster, which roughly began in the late 20’s and early 30’s. Don’t get me wrong sound was around at the time but no one was really doing it until 1927 when The Jazz Singer was the first film to be presented as a “talkie”, meaning The Jazz Singer has the privilege of being the first film to fully utilize synchronized dialogue.
Alright let’s do a quick recap, so in episode one: the silent era part 1, we established what film appreciation is and why we appreciate film. We also started with the silent film era and two of its four main film movement.
Film Appreciation will be a series I’ll be doing where we basically appreciate film (it’s literally in the name lol). This for me will be kinda of like film school revision and hopefully we can learn some new stuff together, before we can do so though we need to know what is film appreciation and why we as cinema lovers do it and why some of us even study film appreciation.
