Wes Anderson

Starting this fall, the Dodge College of Film and Media Arts will offer Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino minors.

“We saw a huge market for these two specific directors,” said a Dodge College representative. “Students are always talking about their films in class, and we thought it would just make sense to take the initiative and structure minors around their film styles. Both minors will be holistic, stretching from directing, set design and casting.”

The Wes Anderson minor will feature the following courses:

  • How to tell people casually that you like Wes Anderson
  • Ornate, cartoonish scene design
  • Unnervingly symmetric shots
  • Moving, steady shots
  • Finding one of the Wilson brothers
  • Jason Schwartzman
  • Choosing your male lead
  • Making sure your film is just quirky enough

The Quentin Tarantino minor will feature the following courses:

  • Choosing which Tarantino movie to brag about liking
  • Giving yourself a cameo
  • Finding your own Tim Roth and Samuel L. Jackson
  • Gratuitous violence
  • The low-angle trunk shot
  • 50s music
  • Blood and cocaine
  • Over-acting being shot
  • Threatening dialogue
