Question description

Your analysis must address the following components (noted in bold below):

  • Contextual Information – In this area, you will provide some of the basic identifying information of the film. This includes:
    • Title
    • Director, cinematographer, major actors/actresses. Be sure to describe their roles in the overall design process.
    • Year of release
    • Type of film (blockbuster, indie, documentary, etc.)
    • Genre
  • Story/Plot – In this area, you should offer a brief summary of the film, and then show how it was deployed in the narrative structure of the film. Explain the difference between the film’s story and its plot. This area can be addressed as a separate paragraph, or can be threaded throughout your analysis of the film.
  • Aesthetic Choices – In this area, you will assess the efficacy of specific techniques and design elements employed in the film as they apply to the overarching narrative and theme of the film. These elements include:
    • Mise en scène (e.g., lighting, sound, composition of frame, costuming, etc.)
    • Editing (e.g., cuts and transitions, shots used, angles, etc.)
    • Technology (i.e., analyze the impact of any notable technological effects: film stock, targeted release venue, special effects, etc.)
  • Social/Personal Impact – In this area, you will critically address the following questions:
    • What impact did this film have on society (i.e., politically or culturally, positive or negative)? The impact can be as major as inspiring political or social changes or as minor as inspiring the production of toys or lunchboxes.
    • How did society affect this film (i.e., what currents in society led to the creation of the film)?
    • If you are unable to find any information about the social impact of the film, explain the personal impact it has had on you.
Note: Not every bullet point under the four listed components will necessarily apply to your movie. However, you will still need to discuss each of the four main components thoroughly, which means that you may need to explain a concept even if it can’t be directly applied to your movie

Ashford University | ENG225 WEEK 05 The week 5 written assignment is your final film critique. This is the culmination of the work you have been doing in this class-- your chance to focus all the techniques and elements we've been studying on the thorough analysis of one feature-length film. Additionally, you'll be asked to reflect on your own development-- what you've learned and how you've learned it-- while looking ahead to see how the skills you've mastered here will apply to your continuing studies and possible career fields. Make sure to read through the guidelines carefully, noting all the different required elements, and take a look ahead at the rubric so you know exactly how your work will be assessed. Here are a few key points to keep in mind as you work on your paper. Stage 1 of the paper asks you to choose a film to analyze from AFI's 10 Top 10 list. Stick to those lists and pick a film you are familiar with or have easy access to, as you will probably need to watch it several times to hone your points. Remember the lessons you've learned throughout this course. For example, you'll be called upon to explain the difference between story and plot in the particular film you've chosen. You'll also look at specific aesthetic choices. While we've discussed those throughout the class, you'll have to explain them and apply them to the film you've chosen. Don't forget to get specific. Whether you're talking about lighting, or editing, or any other cinematic techniques, be sure to drill down and reference specific scenes or shots to help make your point. Here are a few more tips to remember. Stage 1 asks you to consider the social or personal impact of a specific film. The guidelines scaffold some different ways to think about this, but be sure to think broadly. This is an important part of the paper, one where outside resources might be especially helpful. Stage 2 is all about reflection. And this is different from talking about the personal impact of the specific film you've chosen for this paper. The guidelines provide some questions for you to think about, so be sure to provide specific examples as you formulate your response. This grounds the reflection with a practical understanding. See the sample paper we've uploaded in the assignment prompt. This is a model of good student work-- what your professors are looking for and the type of comments we will make. Also, keep in mind that the titles of films should be italicized. Click into the Ashford Library English 225 study guide. It's a portal dedicated to the kinds of articles, essays, and books that will be most helpful resources as you work on your written assignment. Try to budget your time so that you can take advantage of the various resources offered by the Ashford Writing Center to ensure that your paper is written and polished. Remember, the week 5 written assignment is a chance to really apply your understanding of the concepts and skills we've been working so hard to master over the last few weeks. Give yourself an opportunity to succeed by preparing yourself thoroughly and working diligently to complete the paper.
Final Film Critique Preparation Look ahead at the Final Film Critique (Week Five) and review the instructions carefully. Use this time to prepare for the completion of your project. Review the feedback from your Week Two and Week Three assignments and integrate the suggested changes. Be sure to reach out to your instructor if you have questions. Week 5 - Final Film Critique Final Film Critique If this video is not loading properly, you can access the video by clicking here (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Please click here to view the Week Five Assignment Video transcript. Throughout this course, you have been writing essays and participating in discussion forums that analyze various elements of film such as theme, cinematic techniques, and genre. It is now time to combine those elements into a comprehensive analysis of one movie. You will be completing this assignment in two stages. For the first stage (1500 to 1800 words), you will analyze an entire movie. In the second stage (300 to 600 words), you will reflect on how you analyzed the movie as well as how your ability to analyze film in general has evolved. You are encouraged to incorporate writing from your Week Two and Week Three assignments if (a) you have reflected on the instructor’s feedback, (b) you have revised the relevant parts of the essays accordingly, and (c) the essays discuss the same film that you discuss here. Stage 1: Analysis For this stage, you will be analyzing a movie selected from the AFI's 10 Top 10 (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. list. The film you choose can be one that you have previously analyzed in this course. While you are allowed to choose a film that does not come from the AFI lists, you are strongly encouraged to email your professor to receive approval before doing so. The analysis portion of your paper should be 1500 to 1800 words in length. You should analyze the film through the lens of one of the broad theories you have learned about in class (auteur theory, genre theory, formalist theory). Your analysis must address four main areas (contextual information, story/plot, aesthetic choices, and social/personal impact) and how these areas work together to develop the theme of the movie. As you construct your analysis, assume that your reader is not familiar with this film. Use your analysis to explain to your reader why they should watch this film. In addition to the film you are analyzing, you must use three scholarly sources to support your arguments. Refer to the ENG225 Research Guide in the Ashford University Library for guidance and to locate your sources. Cite your sources (including the feature-length film) within the text of your paper and on the reference page. Cite your sources according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Your analysis must address the following components (noted in bold below): • • • • Contextual Information – In this area, you will provide some of the basic identifying information of the film. This includes: o Title o Director, cinematographer, major actors/actresses. Be sure to describe their roles in the overall design process. o Year of release o Type of film (blockbuster, indie, documentary, etc.) o Genre Story/Plot – In this area, you should offer a brief summary of the film, and then show how it was deployed in the narrative structure of the film.

Note: Not every bullet point under the four listed components will necessarily apply to your movie. However, you will still need to discuss each of the four main components thoroughly, which means that you may need to explain a concept even if it can’t be directly applied to your movie. Your paper should be organized around a thesis statement that clarifies what you will attempt to accomplish in your paper, and how you will proceed. Additionally, you must conclude with a restatement of the thesis and a conclusion paragraph. Review the Final Film Critique sample, which provides an example of a well-developed analysis as well as insight on composition. Stage 2: Reflection After completing your movie analysis, you will reflect on the analysis process and how you have learned to more thoroughly analyze film as well as how rigorous study of film enhances your development as a student and thinker. In this 300- to 600-word reflection, review your initial post from the “Post Your Introduction” discussion in Week One, and consider how your ability to analyze movies has changed or grown. Append your reflection to the analysis portion of your paper and submit as one document. Your reflection should be personal and exploratory in nature. Address the following questions in your reflection: • • • • • What can be gained through analyzing film? How has this changed the way you view movies? How are you able to use film theory and criticism to find and interpret meaning in movies? In what ways has this course changed your understanding of how movies are related to society? What skills have you developed during this course, and how might those skills be applied to your major, profession, and/or life?
