Scorsese, Altman, and Kubrick XML Collection

A message from Stephen Mamber, lead developer of ClipNotes, as well as professor/vice chair of Cinema and Media Studies at UCLA:

In the Summer of 2015, I taught a graduate class on the films of Martin Scorsese, Robert Altman, and Stanley Kubrick. I decided to teach for the first time by having all my lecture/presentation/discussions in ClipNotes. I used Apple AirPlay through an Apple TV connected to a monitor in order to display my examples in class, while the notes were intended for my use while presenting the examples. As a result, these notes aren’t always too polished, but I think the ClipNotes xml files here provide a useful sense of the examples and ideas we were able to explore. I consider this experiment highly successful, especially for allowing me to present lots of ideas about many examples throughout these films, which I found to be the ideal way to explore the questions of visual style, especially as they apply to individual great directors, which I was interested in presenting. Put simply, it’s really useful to be ready with ten or twenty examples in a film, and to present them this way. This is far from the only manner in which ClipNotes can be put to use, but I hope it is a a helpful example. Here are the film titles we did and the xml files for each title.
