History of the documentary


A 2005 graduate of Connecticut College, Ross Morin was thrilled to return as an assistant professor of film studies. He received his B.A. in film studies and psychology, a combination he feels has served him very well over the years.

He earned his M.F.A. in film and video production at Ohio University, where he also began teaching. He won the university's Graduate Associate Outstanding Teaching Award in 2006.

Prior to joining Connecticut College, Morin was an assistant professor at DeSales University in Pennsylvania, and a visiting assistant profesor at St. Cloud State University, Minnesota.

He teaches Fundamentals of Motion Picture Production, Documentary Theory and Production, and Screenwriting. His courses emphasize a strong relationship between practice and theory. He believes in teaching film production as applied humanism, with a strong emphasis on the social responsibility and impact of the media maker.

Morin is an independent filmmaker and cinematographer. His recent works include The Shut-in’s Window (2010), a short experimental film, and Ad Noctum (2011), a short horror film screening at film festivals around the country.

As a scholar he is interested in the representation of gender in film and television, in particular the student film. His most recent paper, Ideology on a Lunch Tray: Negative Representations of Women in the Student Film, was presented at Marist College in Fall 2011.
