George Mason University Movies Impact on Emotion Behavior and Social Standard Paper

George Mason University

Question Description

Help me study for my Film class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

Your essay should present the goals of the class: critical reading, analysis, interpretation, and more creative idea development strategies. Additionally, your development of the prewriting steps, use of writing conventions, and understanding of how research and reading prompts complex thought will all be central here.

The Project One Rubric and the skills list below will review/clarify the minimum classroom strategies at play within this project.

A rationale will be a separate document (2 pages or so). This rationale will explain for the reader the dynamics of the selected materials. The interplay/tension in meaning among the sources (and mediums) will be central to the analysis. Class terms and terms distinct to your major will be central.

An Annotated Bibliography will be a component within the final submission.

This assignment begins our great regard for the depth and complexity of academic thought within your field. Additionally, this assignment promotes the research as a prompt to topic points and the creative process.

Please see the handouts on Blackboard. Class assignments and presentations will build on the skills needed for this major essay. Models will be considered in class.

Your Paper should be an examination of the interplay of five or more selected sources and your narrowed topic. There is no one right answer here. Your goals are many:

1)Select sources that are interesting and thoughtful – either considered alone or considered separately;

2)Apply our class lessons for a wide range of response – the avenues, interpretive questions, your cluster, and your knowledge of your major;

3)Apply our class lesson on professional writing and variety – see notes and your self-assessment;

4)Be sure and organize with an introduction, thesis, topic sentences, unified paragraphs, and a conclusion;

5)Remember, a narrowed thesis is central;

6)Examine the interplay of your selected research in light of your narrowed topic;

7)Lastly, remember that the “how” of any presentation should support the “what” of that communication.

Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.

Arias, E. (2016). How Does Media Influence Social Norms? Department of Politics, New York
University, 29.
The central argument of this paper is based on how the media enhances the coordination
of information to influence social norms and beliefs. The author carefully disentangles the
difference between the persuasive power of the media as an individual channel and as a social
channel. The former means that films and movies provide new information to individuals on a
personal level while motivating them to accept such information. In contrast, mass media
channels have an indirect effect on people's behavior by coordinating information about new
norms and influencing individuals to accept them. For instance, certain soap operas showcase a
specific set of values related to the issue of violence against women.
Consequently, since many people view these films at the same time, the media indirectly
coordinates such norms and values while people integrate them into their daily activities. The
findings of the research show that mass communication significantly influences social outcomes
by providing a collective outlet of information. Therefore, people across the world streaming
similar movies and films unintentionally share particular beliefs and social conduct norms based
on what they see and hear. In turn, television acts as the central mechanism for disseminating
such information.

Droit-Volet, S., Fayolle, S., & Gil, S. (2011). Emotion and Time Perception: Effects of Film-Induced
Mood. Frontiers in Integrative Neuroscience, 88.
The researchers provide a framework to help in understanding the impact that certain
movie types have on the mood of particular audiences. This reading also includes a combination
of findings from previous studies and social-scientific theories to explain how emotions and time
perceptions are influenced by watching movies. Participants were questioned before and after
watching films to analyze the changes in emotions and to prove the existence of film-induced
moods. Moreover, three types of films were used in the research, including one evoking fear,
another eliciting sadness, and the last one was a neutral based movie. A brief mood introspective
scale was the methodology used to record the direct mood experience on participants after
watching the films. The study shows that the mood of audiences changes as people tend to feel
sadder after watching sad films. Also, the relationship with time is depicted in that; time appears
to pass slowly when people watch sad films compared to movies invoking fear. The authors also
emphasize the ability of certain movies to influence emotional stimuli, which affects immediate
behavior. For instance, people tend to feel happy when listening to joyful music, which affects
their direct actions, such as motivating one to study for challenging tests.
Consequently, the study analyzes the impact on mood through the facial expressions
shown by the participants. Sad movies may, at times, move people to tears while animated
motions cause playful behaviors in children as they jump up and about smiling loudly. Overall,
by evoking emotional stimuli, different emotions and facial expressions, movies, and films
significantly induce different moods in global audiences.

The influence of movies on individual attitudes and behavior is derived in the study by
explaining the connection of film characteristics on individual uptake to information. The author
focuses on explaining the cognitive reactions of individuals, including their memory on precise
imagery, perception of specific phrases, reception to certain film characters, and their overall
reasoning, among other responses. For instance, human beings react differently when watching a
similar film, and therefore, their actions or immediate behaviors are also differ...
