Depth and leisure in the city

by Kate Fortmueller

This film of a snowball fight in Lyon, France emphasizes many of the characteristics of the Lumière films. This film is shot outside, features a great deal of depth in the composition and shows the subjects at play. Obviously this activity is location specific (CTCS 200 students would not be able to re-create a snowball fight on a street in Los Angeles). What kinds of activities could you film in Los Angeles or on USC campus?
