Do you like cinema and want to practice your English?

Practice English in a fun, dynamic and engaging way exploring cinema

with an American film professional



WHAT is "Travis Kerschen's Film Series"?

It is an original and productive way to learn about cinema... while studying & practicing English!

Using the brief history of narrative film as a structural framework, we will watch and discuss scenes from different films, exploring together the evolution of Western (American/European) cinema. 

Besides the historical relevance of these clips, film terminology and vocabulary will be introduced, allowing the members to analyze the clips progressively based on the composite elements of cinema. 

Different personal anecdotes will be divulged from working on film sets, transforming the series into an organic human experience of what film is.

Along with discussions, various fun participatory exercises and games will be done, including role playing as different film characters.

This will be a fun and dynamic and engaging series, about sharing passion and love for film.

In the future, for more dedicated members, new classes will be available to them which will build upon what has been learned (directing, acting, screenwriting.)

If resources become available, also editing and cinematography. If and when possible, visiting film professionals will be invited to talk about their jobs.
