Make Film History! is an entirely new concept: a "read it–learn it–do it" introduction to the movies. Make Film History! unleashes the filmmaker in you. Reading the book, you enter the history of movies by learning what great filmmakers of the past accomplished and how they did it. Working the webpage, you use simple hands-on filmmaking exercises and software already installed on your computer to introduce yourself to filmmaking by writing, shooting, cutting, and mixing as the great filmmakers did it. Make Film History! is both a book and a hands-on website. The book describes crucial moments when movies fundamentally changed. It explains how yesterday's great filmmakers live on today in contemporary films. On the website, simple hands-on exercises put you in the place of (or next to) great filmmakers as they solved filmmaking problems. You watch — or second-guess — or do it yourself — as the building blocks of movies emerge. Make Film History! is for every movie lover who has ever asked, "How did they do that?" or ever said, "I'd like to make a movie, too!"

Moving beyond a self-indulgent attitude about Africa’s historical victimhood, the book seeks to capture how African states individually and Africa’s collective institutions (the AU) are providing agency in Africa’s international relations. While African states have been trailblazers in such ideas as ‘The Responsibility to Protect’, as conceived in the African Union Constitutive Act (2001) which preceded the United Nations (UN) Secretary General’s report “In Larger Freedom” (2005) in which the UN adopted the concept, African agency in international relations has not always been captured proactively. This volume seeks to document Africa (and African states) in a state of proactivity as opposed to a reactionary mode of international relations which has long been the case due to the discipline’s heavy concentration on the West. The main themes explored are: African agency in international relations and commerce, agency in Africa’s balancing of big and regional powers, reshaping Africa-EU relations beyond the Cotonou Agreements, Africa and international human rights institutions, African efforts in elections and conflicts in Africa and relationship building among African leaders.

Lev Kuleshov (1899–1970) was the first aesthetic theorist of the cinema. An outstanding figure in the “montage” school, he was a key influence on Eisenstein and Pudovkin. Kuleshov was the first to see clearly that montage—the assemblage and alternation of shots—was the very essence and structure of cinematic expression, often overriding the significance of the content of the shots themselves. Deriving his insights from close study of American films (particularly D. W. Griffith’s), Kuleshov used his experience in prerevolutionary Russian films and his wartime efforts in Soviet documentaries to conduct experiments in film acting and montage. He developed an editing method later referred to as the “Kuleshov effect” that juxtaposed shots to evoke new meanings from the combinations. In one experiment, he intercut identical shots of an actor’s neutral face with shots of a bowl of soup, a child in a coffin, and a sunny landscape to evoke different emotional responses from the audience. Kuleshov also “synthesized” a nonexistent woman from close-ups of different parts of several women and created artificial landscapes by intercutting shots of locations separated by great distances. Kuleshov taught at the Soviet film school and was a well-known director of features, and Kuleshov on Film contains essays on both the theoretical and practical sides of filmmaking. Influenced by Futurism, Russian Formalism, and structural linguistics, Kuleshov’s analysis can now be seen as semiotic, presaging studies of film as a system of signs. As a Marxist and structuralist, Kuleshov examined form and content with a materialist approach. The translator’s extensive introduction discusses Kuleshov’s use of signs, typage, and other structuralist concepts and places him in the development of semiotic thought. It also provides intriguing biographical detail on Kuleshov’s conflicts with advocates of “socialist realism,” who attempted to stamp out the artistic and theoretical innovations of the early revolutionary years, and establishes Kuleshov’s position as one of the great figures in the evolution of film. Kuleshov on Film is essential reading for everyone seriously concerned with the cinema. This title is part of UC Press's Voices Revived program, which commemorates University of California Press’s mission to seek out and cultivate the brightest minds and give them voice, reach, and impact. Drawing on a backlist dating to 1893, Voices Revived makes high-quality, peer-reviewed scholarship accessible once again using print-on-demand technology. This title was originally published in 1974.

"Make Poverty History was a major episode of protest that took place in 2005 in the UK, with the aim of influencing the G8 meeting in July of that year in Edinburgh. This book follows the campaign throughout its lifetime and unpacks the tensions that developed around the branding of Make Poverty History, particularly the conflict between campaigners and marketers over the content of messages. Looking at how attitudes towards government and political opportunities influenced the negotiation of communications, it analyses how these communications were understood by the campaign's three audience segments: the mass public, the interested and the activists. It looks at public stereotypes on global poverty and whether the campaign managed to modify them. It maps out Make Poverty History's frame on economic justice and confronts it with audience reactions. The book ends by looking at the campaign's troubled relationship with celebrities."--Book cover.
