Documentary Review
Assignment: After watching the Netflix documentary Blood Brothers: Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali, students will write a two-page film review. This assignment is worth up to 25 points. Students will submit their review on Canvas. Due: October 21 by 11:59 p.m. EST.
Film Synopsis:
Netflix describes Blood Brothers: Malcolm X & Muhammad Ali as “the definitive documentary about legendary icons Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali.” Featuring never before seen archival footage, the documentary is inspired by the book Blood Brothers: The Fatal Friendship Between Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X written by Randy Roberts and Johnny Smith.
Blood Brothers: Malcolm X & Muhammad Ali tells the extraordinary story behind the friendship of two of the most iconic figures of the 20th century: Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X. Few people understand the bond these men shared. The charismatic and outspoken Olympic champion who charmed the nation, and the ex-con-turned intellectual revolutionary who railed against the evils of white oppression by speaking truth to power. The message they carried is still as potent and relevant today as ever before. Their bond was undoubtedly deep, their friendship real and their legacies inextricably bound.
Directed by Marcus Clarke, Blood Brothers was produced by Kenya Barris, Jason Perez, Simon George, Erynn Sampson, and Lightbox’s Jonathan Chinn and Simon Chinn.
Assignment Guidelines:
Keep in mind that the purpose of the documentary review is to inform readers, in this case, the general public, about the film. Furthermore, a reviewer’s task is to offer an interpretation or argument about the film’s merits. How does Blood Brothers help us better understand the significance of the relationship between Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X?
Students should take detailed notes while they watch the documentary. As you take notes identify the most important storylines, scenes, characters, and interviews.
What is the main story? When/where does it take place?
How do the most striking stories help us better understand the director’s point of view? Does the documentary offer any social, political, or moral messages?
Students should also consider the cinematography. In the film industry, cinematography involves various techniques, including the general composition of a scene; the lighting of the set or location; the choice of cameras, lenses, and filters; the camera angle and movements; sound effects and music; and the integration of any special effects. In short, cinematography is about how the director presents the story on screen.
The basis of your arguments should be grounded in examples from the film.
Students should organize their review around three sections: an introduction that summarizes the documentary; a comprehensive evaluation of the film; and a conclusion.
The introduction paragraph should summarize the documentary and end with your thesis statement—the argument you are making about the film. The introduction should also include the director Marcus Clarke or important producers associated with the film (Kenya Barris).
Most of your paper will consist of body paragraphs where you provide analysis of the film’s messages and cinematography. What are the strengths and weaknesses of the film?
A strong conclusion paragraph does not summarize what you already wrote in your review. Rather, your conclusion should restate your thesis and addresses whether you would recommend the film to audiences. Would you recommend the documentary? Why or why not? What will viewers learn from watching Blood Brothers? Does the documentary advance our knowledge about the history of sports, race, and civil rights?
Remember, your review should practice formal writing standards. Avoid slang and jargon.
Please use a 12-point Times New Roman font and double-space your paragraphs.
Your review should follow a logical path and have clear paragraphs with strong topic sentences.
Use quotes judiciously. Quotations can be effective, but overuse diminishes your authority.
Proofread your work! Read your essay out loud to catch mistakes and polish your language.
Do not plagiarize. Plagiarism is the use of another person’s words and/or ideas without properly citing the source. Plagiarizing essays will result in an “F” for the essay and possibly the course.
Questions? Contact Professor Smith

Please answer all of the questions listed below. Each question should be answere

Please answer all of the questions listed below. Each question should be answered in at minimum 1-2 paragraphs. All answers must be written in complete sentences. Your answers should include specific examples from the articles and speeches you are analyzing and from the readings and course lectures.These questions ask students to analyze the two articles, “Lynching and the Excuse for It” and “Why Women Should Vote,” assigned during Week 2.Please answer the following questions:
What are the articles “Lynching and the Excuse for It” by Ida B. Wells and “Why Women Should Vote” by Jane Addams about? What are the two authors’ key arguments?
How do the themes and tones of both articles reflect the political objectives that motivated the organizing efforts of women during the Progressive Era? What were some of the organizations that worked to achieve the goals that Wells and Addams advocate for in these articles?
“Lynching and the Excuse for It” was written, in part, as a response to an anti-lynching article written by Jane Addams earlier in the same year. Wells’ response includes both praise and criticism for Addams’ analysis of lynching. What does this exchange reveal about challenges that women organizers in the Progressive Era faced when working to build diverse coalitions of women from different racial, economic, and educational backgrounds? What were some of the potential benefits of this approach?
Both Ida B. Wells and Jane Addams were involved in organizing to address various forms of injustice and inequality. While these two articles were written to address the specific problems of lynching and the exclusion of women from the right to vote respectively, there are portions of both articles that refer to other societal problems. Please identify an additional problem that is discussed in one of the articles. (In answering this question, you may choose either of the two articles). Provide at least one quote from the article that you choose that involves an issue other than lynching or women’s suffrage. Explain how the author connects this additional problem to the primary issue they discuss.

Course Paper Guidelines – Film Analysis
The ten-page course paper must be no less than ten double spaced type pages in times roman or courier 12 pt. font. The paper must include a correctly formatted MLA works cited page and adequate and correctly formatted in-text citation. Papers should be numbered at the top left-hand corner beginning on page 2. The paper must include correct parenthetical in-text citations according to the MLA documentation system. A complete first draft is due on the specified date and participation in the peer review session(s) is required and will be graded. The paper must offer an analysis of a selected film through a logical theoretical framework [theories of focus and relevant theorists’ work from class] to develop the critical point about the film. A thesis statement must be an effective guiding map for the essay. The paper should be structured as follows:
The introductory paragraph (s) should be 1 or no more than two paragraphs. The thesis statement must be introduced within the introductory paragraph. The introduction should introduce the film, primary theoretical approach through which you are framing your film analysis, and the primary representative theorist of that approach and relevancy. The thesis should present an actual point, which ties the film (point of focus) and theory together. A thesis statement should be one sentence, two only if necessary to articulate the point thoroughly and clearly. It is also fine to include a brief synopsis of the film in the introductory part or it can be included later at the beginning of the actual treatment of the film.
The body of the paper should discuss the theoretical framework first (brief history, key principles), the theorist, specifically, his/her contribution to the field, especially the key concepts/premises of the theory relevant to your film analysis (approximately two to three and half pages). The body should then transition into a specific address of the theory and theorist in relation to the point of your focus for the film. If you did not do so in the introductory part, offer a brief synopsis of the film (no more than several sentences to a paragraph). Paragraphs should have effective topic sentences, and clear transitions throughout that develop the thesis logically and clearly.
Incorporate relevant film terminology that you’ve been introduced to in your film courses thus far into your analysis. Stay on point. Make sure you show your close reading of the film through appropriate specific references to scenes, lines, characters, and action as you illustrate your thesis and do not fail to incorporate documentation correctly for all sources used. You should primarily use scholarly sources and databases and some sources by professional film writers.

Hi there, I have received feedback again from my supervisor and he wants me to focus on the literature review and methodology. SO with the literature review explaining as to why I choose the books, I need to at least mention 3 books. And with the methodology explain which approach I took which in my case is qualitative method and why I did this. I attached the whole thesis so it is clear as to what the topic is. So just focus on the literature review and methodology.
I have also attached the criteria to see what needs to be done and mentioned in order to score high ( Criteria 2 and 3 ), I scored a 5 for both of them and need to go up in order to pass the thesis.

Congratulations! You are a renowned journalist and have been commissioned by an important Italian newspaper to write an article on Matteo Garrone’s Gomorrah. As an expert on the topic of organized crime in Italy and a very accomplished writer, you have been given a lot of creative freedom. You may approach the film, its direction, plot, characters, cinematography, historical and geographical background in any way and from any angle you wish. Your editor, however, has the following requests:
1. You must discuss the following aspects of the film:
a) the development of one (or more) of the characters;
b) Garrone’s cinematography and artistic choices (for example, by analyzing one specific scene and how it promotes the storyline);
c) the impact of Camorra’s criminal activity locally and at the national level, as depicted in the film;
2. You must include a bibliography with at least five sources. Two of these sources must be John Dickie’s Cosa Nostra: A History of the Sicilian Mafia and Dana Renga’s Mafia Movies: A Reader pages 22-23; 294-299; 399-410. The other three (or more, if you wish) may come from this course (such as the recommended articles and videos) or they can be found on JSTOR or google scholar. Wikipedia is NOT an accepted source.
3. Your article must be between 1800 and 2200 words. You are highly encouraged to include images, stills, and/or audio. Please indicate the word count of your article.
The final project below from another class will provide you with a stylistic example of a creative term paper on a different subject. This is just one example of what your final product may look like, but the possibilities are endless. Unbridle your creativity and have fun with the course materials! Just remember to cite and list your references at the end of the article.

THE FINAL PODCAST
Shoot for a show length of 15 minutes (conversational speech rate is generally 130-150 words per minute). Keep topics moving, and limit subtopic coverage to 2-3 minutes. Use guests, musical interludes, and/or audio clips as a way to break up the conversation, set the pace and tone of your show, and transition between subtopics. MORE INFO HERE
How to Write Your Script
Research all components of your episode topic in order to deliver the most relevant material to your audience. Your writing style should be conversational with friendly, informal language, limiting the use of jargon or overly complex vocabulary in order to accommodate your listeners. Short sentences are generally more natural to read aloud.
Develop an introduction that will quickly explain and highlight the purpose of your podcast. This portion of the podcast may incorporate audio clips, music, other voices, or, it may just be you speaking. In any case, it should give your audience an idea of the episode’s topic, and perhaps an overview of the show’s agenda.
All subsequent segments can be more in-depth and focus on specific areas of interest within the larger topic. Depending on the quality of the content, each segment should be no more than 2 – 4 paragraphs.
Finally. Wrap up your episode with a conclusion to summarize and give closure for your audience.
Recording Audio
Smartphones or laptops will be sufficient for most of your recording needs. Students with iPhones can use the built-in Voice Memos app; Android users may need to download an app, such as Voice Recorder. If your project calls for more sophisticated audio equipment, you can borrow equipment from RISD Media Services.
Compiling & Editing
This is your chance to make your podcast dynamic by integrating audio clips, sound effects, music, interviews, etc. To put recorded audio together into an episode, you will need audio editing software such as Audacity or GarageBand. If you need technical assistance, there is a wealth of online documentation to help you get started with the software. Let me know right away if you need additional help or resources.

Please write a short scriipt-style novel based on the outline(Beat Sheet) I attached. Below is the feedback my instructor gave on the outline, read that as well.
There is a TV show called Criminal Minds and there are many reports that need to be read for this story. In order to get around forcing the audience to read the show has developed a lead detective who will read the info to the group and they get to respond with questions. I’m glad this is set in high school because the story feels like something that wouldn’t be a big deal normally (just delete the friend request) but with high school, everything must have a dramatic element. I think the compelling part here is that you will need to make SU become a stalker in the same way that stalker is. This would set up an interesting parallel that is similar to revenge killings. I really want you to write with this in mind and to write with an attempt to minimize the amount of time we spend looking at phones, laptops, social media etc.
