The film book bibliography, 1940-1975 by Jack C Ellis( Book )

12 editions published in 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than 5,400 entries are included in this first attempt to cite and classify all English language books, monographs, and dissertations about film that appeared from 1940 to 1975. Intended as a source of information about existing film books and as a tool for researching available literature on any film topic, the bibliography uses ten basic categories for classifying the literature: reference; film technique and technology; film industry; film history; film classifications; biography, analysis, and interview; individual films; film theory and criticism; film and society; and film and education. Each of these major sections is further subdivided as necessary to increase the precision of classification. Where title and classification do not make the contents clear, annotations are provided. Works that overlap categories are cited more than once. Name and title indexes are included. (Rl)

John Grierson : life, contributions, influence by Jack C Ellis( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ellis examines Grierson's accomplishments in detail, probing the complexities of Grierson's motivations and personality. His subject, a true titan in the world of documentary film, was the first filmmaker to use public and private institutional sponsorship - not the box office - to pay for his films. He also employed nontraditional distribution techniques, going outside the movie theaters to reach audiences in schools and factories, union halls, and church basements. Essentially, Grierson created documentary film and established an audience for it."--Jacket

Approaches to film as an art form : a handbook for college teachers by Jack C Ellis( Book )

4 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In addition to the growth and increasing organization of interest in the film medium through channels of informal adult education, study of film has been introduced into secondary school curricula. The work with instructional films in high schools and in teacher training institutions has, since 1923, been coordinated by the Division of Audio-Visual Instruction of the National Education Association. DAVI has also encouraged the teaching of motion picture appreciation. Here the contributions of Edgar Dale, one of the leaders in audio-visual education, have been particularly sustained and vigorous. It is the high school English teacher, however, who has assumed chief responsibility for motion picture appreciation units and courses, benefitting from leadership provided by the Committee on Photoplays of the National Council of Teachers of English. Following the pioneer work of Mary and Allan Abbott at Teachers College, Columbia University, about 1928, film study at the high school level received added impetus from the publication of the 'Payne Fund Studies' in 1933. These researches aroused widespread concern over what were interpreted as the harmful effects of contemporary feature films on youth, and contained recommendations for motion picture study as one of the surest ways to counteract these influences. A quantity of film literature and study materials for secondary school use appeared during the middle and late thirties, examples of which are listed in Appendix I. During the next decade, teachers of dramatic and visual arts joined teachers of English in a broad approach to film as one of the 'communication arts.' Most high school communication and language arts textbooks now include sections on film, and many high school classes are themselves producing 16 mm. movies
