FOCUS: The 5-7 page paper should focus in more depth on one element of film that has been discussed in class or presented in the Film Studies textbook. You should present a close analysis of scenes and shots to explore how the filmmaker’s choices affected your viewing of the movie. The films discussed MUST BE ON THE SYLLABUS and the focus of your writing should be exclusively on FORM, i.e. HOW the filmmaker uses film tools to convey ideas and shape emotions. Use at least two (2) quotes (total) from Sikov’s Film Studies, Cousins’ The Story of Film or Nowell-Smith’s The Oxford History of World Cinema to bolster your argument.
Choose one film on the syllabus and propose your own topic related to the formal choices in the film and how these reflect the development of moving images.

WRITING TIPS: Clearly state the focus of your paper (along with the name of the film and director) in the opening paragraph or topic sentence. Once your thesis is established, the next (at least three) paragraphs should allow you to develop the major points of your analysis and to provide specific references (examples) within the film that support your ideas and thesis. The final paragraph should tie together the threads and leave the reader with a final thought or question that has emerged from your study. The purpose of the paper is not primarily to present research but rather to allow you to reflect on your response to the choices made in the film.
