Welcome to Stephen Mamber's Projects

I am a Professor in the Department of Film, Television, and Digital Media at UCLA. Here are six projects of mine.  You can find more information about me at my UCLA web page here, where a small number of my published articles are also available. I can be reached by email at smamber@ucla.edu. (While I am listed on my school's website in the Research Professor Emeritus section, I am still active in the Department and University.)

The Seventh Race: Kubrick at The Starting Gate

The third in my series of free iPad apps examining great films with unusual time structures. This is about the 1955 Stanley Kubrick film "The Killing". Available as of July 2018. It is a free iPad app (like the others). On an iPad, go to the AppStore to download. Search by my name or the app name. Click here for a preview link.

7 Thursdays: Looking at Brief Encounter

The second in my series of free iPad apps examining great films with unusual time structures. About the 1945 David Lean film. Click here for a preview link.

Who Shot Liberty Valance?

The first of my experiments in "forensic film analysis," looking at the 1963 John Ford film "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance". Click here to preview.

ClipNotes - An iPad and Windows 10 App

Description, links, and support materials for my ClipNotes app, a film/video study and presentation tool is available at clipnotes.org. In addition to an iPad version, there is also a Windows 10 app (which means anything running Windows 10, not just tablets). The Windows version can be found, naturally, in the Windows App Store. Lots of stuff about this app is also available at clipnotes.org.


These are two older web-based apps which I think are still of interest.

Instrument of War: The True Story of the Yuba City Draft Board Murders

I did this in the middle 90's sometime. It is an attempt at "Digital Storytelling".

Center for Hidden Camera Research

A look at some surveillance video questions. Finished in the early part of this century. The "Gallery of Hidden Camera Examples" is probably the most interesting part. Ignore the suggestion about using Internet Explorer that's on the opening screen!
