Abbreviated Journal Title
Film, Radio, Television
This essay describes an innovative film studies assignment in which students explore still photography and Hollywood cinema. The author and his freshman cinema studies students learned by doing--they created their own film stills after Cindy Sherman, employing frame analysis, semiotics, and Barthes's concept of the 'third meaning' along the way.
