This is the Teaching Tools corner of Film Vault. This is where the basic components of film language become available. For teachers and students who wish to read and interpret visual narrative, building a film vocabulary is essential. The Manuals, found in this corner, intend to familiarize users with film’s own grammar and syntax. Designed to function either independently, or, in support of the proposed film education guides, the Manuals feature key terms, illustrate the rules and conventions of film language, provide practical and technical terminology.
