  • For more classes visit

  • www.snaptutorial.com

  • Narrative and Storytelling. Explain the difference between a film’s story and a film’s plot. Use a specific film to illustrate your point of view. In the film you chose, are the events presented chronologically or are they presented non-linearly? What might a filmmaker’s intentions be when he or she chooses to present events chronologically or in non-linear order? How are elements like character development or foreshadowing used differently between the two storytelling methods?

  • Elements of Design. During the process of envisioning and designing a film, the director, production designer, and art director (in collaboration with the cinematographer) are concerned with several major spatial and temporal elements. These design elements punctuate and underscore the movement of figures within the frame, including the following: setting, lighting, costuming, makeup, and hairstyles. Choose a scene from movieclips.com. In a three to five page paper, (excluding the cover and reference pages) analyze the mise-en-scène.

  • Frame by Frame. Choose one of the following video clips for the discussion:

  • Psycho (1960)

  • A Beautiful Mind (2001)

  • Considering one film is from 1960 and the other produced in 2001, there are clearly differences in what the filmmakers were able to do. Describe the style of editing that is used in the film clip you chose. What types of shots are used? What types of visual transitions are used between shots? Does this scene follow continuity editing or does it work in a different style? How does this affect the audience’s understanding of the scene? Be sure to watch the entire scene closely to see the scene as a whole

  • Focus on Society. Just as some books are preserved and regarded as having had obvious effects on society (such as Lolita, Lord of the Flies, and Orwell’s Animal Farm and 1984), there have been a number of films that we look back upon which have clearly had cultural resonance, or became part of a social dialogue we’re perhaps still engaged with today (see Figure 9.1 of the text). Our text tells us that “the impact of these movies is mostly unintentional” and that there is debate about whether the movies

  • Criticism and Commentary. Reviews for movies are readily available through newspapers, magazines, blogs, and other print sources. Metacritic.com provides full reviews for a multitude of movies. Find a review for a film, preferably one that you have seen. According to the distinctions made in Chapter Ten, how is the reviewer approaching the film. To what degree does the review acknowledge the public perception of the film? What evidence does each review provide to illustrate main points and claims? Do any words or phrases capture the essence of the reviewer’s attitude toward the film? Additionally, please share with the class exactly which sources you rely on, as a member of the general audience to evaluate whether or not you will see a movie.
