For the purposes of this assignment, write to an imaginary figure of authority,

For the purposes of this assignment, write to an imaginary figure of authority, trying to justify your movement’s stylistic and thematic preconceptions. For example, you might want to pretend to be Sergei Eisenstein arguing for the merits of Soviet Montage to Josef Stalin himself. To be successful at this assignment, you need to display a thorough understanding of this movement’s characteristics and purpose, and to be able to rhetorically adopt a rigorous defense of it against a hypothetical challenge

Term paper is for my Art of Cinema class, and is an essay on the Coming of Age genre, comparing the movies Lady Bird (2017) and Dead Poets Society (1989). The thesis needs to explain how these 2 movies suceed in being Coming of Age films. I’ve attached the assignment file with specific instructions. 3 specific sources are required which is explained in the file. I’ll copy and paste a shortened version of instructions below in case you want to read it here 🙂 Thank you so much!!
Art of Cinema Fall 2020
T.A. DONGWON OH
Paper: due 12/1
Format:
7-8 full pages, typed, double-spaced, 12-point Times Roman font, 1-inch margins all around. This is the equivalent of about 2100-2400 words.
Choose one of the following pairs of films, representative of a particular genre, to write a 7 to 8 page paper, using both original analysis and outside research. You will be expected to devise your own thesis and argue that thesis with a coherent and organized discussion on the topic. Your thesis MUST engage with the class concepts on genre and the historical/cultural context of your respective films. Be sure to use the terminology and concepts provided by Dr. Banks in lecture and/or those used by the course readings.
At least one combination of these films will be made available online, but those that are not can be accessed through online sources (Netflix or amazon)
Options:
Coming of Age
Dead Poets Society (1989) – Prime, AppleTV, Vudu for $3.99
Ladybird (2017) – Netflix
How to Begin Writing:
Consider each genre’s formulas, conventions and/or iconography and how they apply to each film. In order to construct a strong argument, compare and contrast both films and take into account the historical period that each film belongs to in relation to the ways in which a particular approach to genre is utilized to convey meaning (classical, post-classical, modernist, postmodern). Don’t focus on whether or not the film “fits” within the genre listed on the assignment sheet, and don’t base your argument on how the two films show a change or evolution in genre – that’s the assumption of the assignment. Go beyond that and look closely at how the historical period affects the way the genre conveys meaning or the way in which different approaches to the genre are utilized to convey meaning.
Keep in mind that the purpose of this paper is to compare two films of the same genre from different periods. Considering the ways in which the films are similar, as well as how they differ is a good place to start in the development of a thesis, but you want to make sure that the analysis in your paper ultimately reflects a historical understanding of genre (although this does not mean that you should be summarizing the history of your genre for this paper). Ask yourself how your films work within generic formulas, conventions and iconographies. Within this analysis you should be examining the generic formulas, conventions, and iconography at work in the films, as well as the ways in which the style (or formal elements) influence the ways in which the audience understands and interprets these various generic elements. For example: how do we understand a classical Hollywood western to be different from a contemporary Science Fiction western? What does this stylistic shift communicate about the respective cultural contexts/historical periods? These are the types of questions that you should be thinking about in relation to your films. Having a clear understanding of your genre will help you answer these questions.
You should also consider the era of each film. In which period would you categorize each film, and what are the implications of the era in which this film is made? Be sure to draw on concepts from lecture, discussion, and the course readings. Keep in mind that although you will need to historicize your films, your analysis needs to be more sophisticated than simply categorizing your films, and not all films will be easy to clearly categorize (just because your film was made in 1980 does not mean that it is a Blockbuster film). If you are having difficulty categorizing your film, consider the historical or cultural contexts of the films as a possible means of relating their differences. Also consider that you may have a film or films that seem to correspond better to the traits of another period—this might be worth discussing in your paper.
Furthermore, be sure that you are drawing on appropriate formulas, conventions, and iconography of the genre you are discussing; that is, don’t assume that just because you’ve seen every slasher film of the ‘80s and ‘90s, you know the horror genre. This assignment requires that you have a clear understanding of how genres develop and change over time –so please make sure that you are adequately addressing both films in your final paper. If you are basing your knowledge only on postmodern examples, you do not have an adequate understanding of the genre, and this will probably be a good place to direct the bulk of your research.
Research:
This paper requires you to incorporate your own original analysis with the work of other writers on film. You must include and respond to at least three (3) outside sources. This means that you will have at least three (3) sources cited in your paper.
At least two of these sources must be e-books or journals you accessed through LMU library that addresses the genre under examination. A third source can be a newspaper or magazine article that addresses the film (or films), the filmmakers, or the historical context in which the film was made. This third source can be a review or other commentary on the film(s).
The three kinds of scholarly sources you must use are:
1) Genre Theory – These sources should deal with general theoretical frameworks regarding genre theory and specific writings on your particular genre choice (Some good examples include: Film Genre Reader, edited by Barry Keith Grant, Genre and Hollywood, by Steve Neale, and Film/Genre by Rick Altman). Our libraries offer books on all of the genres covered by this assignment, so you should be able to find sources easily. The LMU library also has a plentiful selection of film periodicals that often include work on genres.
2) Historical context – In order to explore more detailed information on the history of a particular period as it relates to film, you should consider looking at David Cook’s A History of Narrative Film, Pam Cook’s The Cinema Book and Robert Ray’s A Certain Tendency of Hollywood Cinema 1930-1980. (NOTE: Film Art does NOT count as a source, although you are welcome to use it otherwise).
Film/Filmmaker—This should be fairly self-explanatory. The library’s resources on some filmmakers and films will be better than others, but don’t hesitate to ask the library staff for help if you are stuck. If you are having trouble finding resources related to a particular film or filmmaker, contact me.
3) Textual or Cultural Analysis of a specific film – Many of the films I’ve assigned have been written on extensively. As the purpose of this assignment is for you to come up with an original thesis and then use research to support your thesis, I’d warn you against letting prior scholarly writings on your film shape your thesis. That said, it can be helpful to see how the film has been addressed by various scholars in various cultural contexts, and is a good jumping off point if you’re feeling stuck.
Make sure that all three sources are incorporated with your own ideas and help to prove your thesis. A quote about how good (or bad) a film is, for example, does not help prove your thesis. Quote material that critically engages with the film or genre and quote material that helps your argument.
Websites, DVD commentaries and interviews, works of fiction, book jackets, DVD boxes, fliers from Best Buy, and the like are not sources which critically engage with films or film genres. These DO NOT count as sources. Internet sources like Wikipedia, Turner Classic Movies, IMDB, and Rotten Tomatoes; DVD commentaries DO NOT count toward the research requirement.
Essays will be graded on the basis of the following criteria:
1 | The quality of your argument or thesis
2 | Your grasp of the key terms or issues
3 | Your ability to analyze ideas and texts in meaningful ways
4 | The effective use of research—when necessary (and it IS necessary here) —and examples to support your points, and
5 | The structure, transitions, and overall cohesiveness of the piece

Instructions
PAPERS
-There are Two Papers assigned.
PAPERS: One and Two
General Instructions
For each of the two papers, you will be responsible for watching a film, writing a 3 to 5 page essay in which you respond to prompts (see below), and then providing a list of “My Criteria for Quality in Film.”
THE PROCESS:
Make any and all arrangements necessary to view the films and write about them: Some of the films may be available for streaming via Netflix or another online content provider; others may be available for checkout from your local public library, while others may need to be rented. You are better off watching these films on the largest possible screen, and at the highest possible resolution.
Make Time to Complete the Assignment: Each paper requires you to watch a film IN ADDITION to the ones you will be watching for the week’s discussion, so be sure to leave yourself enough time to: watch the film, think, write a first draft, edit and revise.
Turn your assignments in by their respective due dates to the correct assignment folder in LEO.
THE CONTENT:
These assignments are reaction papers, not plot summaries or research papers. Write what you have to say about the film, not what others have said, but know how the film was made The papers will be graded based on:
a) Evidence that you are reading and viewing the course content, comparisons to other relevant films you have seen (in class and as a movie watcher); use of the film vocabulary introduced in class and college-level writing skills (spelling, punctuation, and grammar).
b) Clear presentation of your opinions and reasonable explanations and justifications to support those opinions: In a 100-level course, you would perhaps be asked to write about what you watched on the screen. In a 200-level course, you are being asked to say what you think about what you watched. In this 300-level course, you should explain why you think the way you do about the film, and then justify your opinions with explanations (using references found in the weekly content in the LEO classroom).
Be sure to correctly spell the names listed in the credits of directors, actors, screenwriters, and other people (to avoid “points” being taken off of the final grade for that paper).
These papers are about your observations, insights and evaluations not only what you can learn by reading up on the film or the filmmaker. Do not just repeat what you find online. Think carefully before you write, be creative and apply what you have been learning in this course.
First Paper Assignment: Film One (F1)
Part 1: View a feature film made between 1940 – 1970 you have not seen before (or will see later in this class) by a great director. Many directors were active both before and after 1970 so make sure you see a pre-1970 FEATURE fiction film.
Suggestion: American directors such as Frank Capra, George Cukor, John Ford, George Stevens, Preston Sturges, Billy Wilder, or William Wyler. Foreign directors such as Ingmar Bergman (Swedish), Luis Buñuel (Spanish), Claude Chabrol (French), Federico Fellini (Italian), Akira Kurosawa (Japanese), Lina Wertmuller (German) or the British team known as “The Archers” made up of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. For other possibilities, try: http://www.filmsite.org/directors.html Comment on the specific film you saw in terms of its genre and the quality of the film itself. Pay attention to the camerawork (cinematography) the editing (montage) and the sound (including music). What did you like and what did you dislike? Why do you like the things you like, and why do you dislike the things you dislike? Finally, is the film successful in creating a work of fiction using the craft of filmmaking and considering when it was made? (Note: This is not the same question as whether or not you liked it. It is entirely possible to like a film that you are aware is not very good.)
Part 2: Draw some general conclusions about the work of the director and one of the main actors or actresses. For example let us say you watched the 1962 film Lawrence of Arabia. Did you like David Lean as a filmmaker? Explain your answer. Did you like Peter O’Toole in the role of Larwrence? Why, or why not?
End with your overall impression of the film, including how you see it as an example of the its genre and time period.
PARTS ONE AND TWO SHOULD BE PRESENTED AS A SINGLE ESSAY!
Part 3: On a separate page, insert the heading “My Criteria for Quality in Film.” Under that heading, propose four general statements indicative of your personal taste in movies. These statements should be numbered (1) through (4), and they should be written as complete sentences or a short paragraph. For example, if you commented in your essay that you liked the acting because it was realistic and you liked the script because it had a happy ending, you could propose these two statements as criteria for quality: “(1) Excellent movies feature realistic acting. (2) A movie is more likely to be good if it ends happily.” Think about and then explain what words such as good, excellent, and effective actually mean. Be sure to save your “My Criteria” page to your hard drive—you will be resubmitting an expanded version of it with for the second paper later in this course.
Second Paper Assignment: Film Two
This is essentially the same assignment as Paper One BUT about a film produced between 1970 and 2000.
Part 1: View a feature film made between 1970 – 2000 you have not seen before (or will see later in this class) by a great director or featuring a great actor or actress.
Just as you did in the first paper, comment on the specific film you saw. Pay particular attention to the screenplay, camerawork (cinematography) the editing (montage) and the sound (including music). for this paper, also address special effects. Again, as you did in the first paper, talk about what you like and what you dislike? Why do you like the things you like, and why do you dislike the things you dislike? Is the film a good film, or is it not?
Part 2: Now that you have commented on the specific film you viewed, see if you can draw some general conclusions about the work of the director and one of the main actors or actresses. Be sure to comment on the overall impression you had of the film, including how you see it as an example of the its genre and time period. Remember, this is film review based on your opinions and insights: do not repeat what you have learned by reading up on the film or the filmmaker.
Part 3: Go back to the “My Criteria for Quality in Film” page. Based on your viewing of this week’s film, add four new general conclusions. These statements should be numbered (5) through (8). Be sure to include all of the criteria you created for Paper One.

Adaptation of a film can happen in numerous ways to numerous effects. For this a

Adaptation of a film can happen in numerous ways to numerous effects. For this assignment, you will get the chance to “remake” or create a sequel to a film (on paper). You will be playing director, casting director, producer, editor, costume designer, art director, and music supervisor.
Select one of the following films to “remake”:
Psycho (Alfred Hitchcock, 1960)
The Godfather (Francis Ford Coppola, 1972)
The Graduate (Mike Nichols, 1967)
Metropolis (Fritz Lang, 1927)
City of God (Fernando Meirelles, Kátia Lund, 2002)
The Departed (Martin Scorsese, 2006)
O Brother, Where Art Thou? (Coen, 2000)
Singin’ in the Rain (Stanley Donen, Gene Kelly, 1952)
Incorporate all the following elements into your essay, following the instructions carefully:
Rationale: In at least one thorough paragraph, answer these questions: Why did you select this film? Why do you think it should be remade or continued with a sequel? Make your case as an artist (how is this an exciting, creative endeavor?) AND make your case to a studio head (how is it marketable—to what audience(s), when, and why?).
Casting: Recast at least FOUR major characters, using individuals alive and working in 2021. In a detailed paragraph, explain your choices, especially if you’re making a sequel to a much older film.
Scene addition and subtraction: Select one or more scenes to add (you may describe or script this) and explain why you made this choice; then, select one or more scenes to cut and, in a single paragraph, explain why you made this choice.
Chronology: Explain how you would reorder scenes—this can be radical or minor—and to what effect in at least one paragraph.
Historical period or regional context: Place the film at least ten years away from the original or in another regional context. In at least one paragraph, explain why you think this is a worthwhile change and how it would transform the film’s impact.
Costuming: Thematize the “look” of one central character in a manner very different from the original. Consider hair and makeup, fashion, color, fit, masculinity/androgyny/femininity, age-appropriateness, region-appropriateness, fabric, garment selection, and anything else you think is relevant to recreating that character, and then explain your choices in one paragraph. Your choices must include considerations beyond those in step #5. Please include images.
Set design: Select one significant set that appears in the film to transform. Explain why you chose that particular set and how you would change it in a single paragraph. Please include images.
Props-mastering: Online, find at least three props that belong in the film and include the images in your document. In a detailed paragraph, explain how you see each prop used and why that specific object would be appropriate.
Music supervision: Select at least three songs or pieces of music that you feel would be appropriate for inclusion and where you would place them in the film. In a detailed paragraph, explain your reason for including these songs and your reason for placing them at those moments. If the film you’re remaking already contains iconic music, how does this complicate matters? Do you keep the original version? Do a new interpretation? Omit it entirely?
Conclusion: In at least one thorough paragraph, make your closing statement for why this film needs to be made, including potential difficulties along the way.
Guidelines:
No length requirement (it CAN be longer than seven pages if needed), but make sure to cover all sections in precise, specific detail
Write in MLA format:
Typed, double-spaced, 12-point font, 1-inch margins, Times New Roman font
Standard rules of paragraph construction (topic sentences, supporting quotations, appropriate transitions)
Aim for an academic tone, not an informal one. Avoid first- and second-person pronouns (I, me, my, you, we, us, our, etc.), as well as personal narrative (“This is my favorite movie because I remember watching it with my friends when we were kids.”)

I need a paper that is about the movie ELF. Please follow my instructions very carefully. As the last paper, I ordered got me a failing grade. I will upload my notes on how this paper needs to be written but I will also explain the outline needed for the paper. For the intro, I need it to grab the reader’s attention. I do not need it to be a summary of the movie. I need it to grab the reader’s attention. Then I need the thesis statement to be the last sentence of the intro and here’s my thesis statement “According to the “Elf”, the only path to success is through embracing bourgeois values”. This paper needs to be about at least 4 strong characters from the movie. I’ve included each bourgeois value and the definition. In each body paragraph, I need that paragraph to be about each character and each of these 3 bourgeois values and I need each body paragraph and sentence to back up my thesis. The 1st body paragraph needs to be about the least strongest character. And this paragraph needs to start with which of the bourgeois values is the character’s strongest, then the 2nd strongest, then 3 the least strongest. Then the next paragraph needs to be whichever character relates the BEST to the 1st character you write about in the 1st body paragraph. Once you start the 2nd body paragraph, the first sentence will be their strongest bourgeois value and it’ll be the same bourgeois value as the last bourgeois value in the previous paragraph. In each sentence describing these values that you see in the movie, I need a quote to back it up and if there’s not a good quote then just explain what happened in the scene without telling the story of the movie. So this has to continue till the last body paragraph and this last body paragraph needs to be about the strongest character in the movie. I also need a good conclusion paragraph that finalizes everything you wrote about but it also needs to back up the thesis statement. There will only be 1 source, and that will obviously be the movie. When you cite the quotes in the body paragraph can you please us this “(Elf np)”? So since there are 3 bourgeois values, there needs to be 3 quotes in each body paragraph. In image 3, I’ve included each bourgeois value and the definitions. I also included an example of how the body paragraphs are supposed to look.

ENGLISH 1301 – Group Project – Film Review
Students will consider different points of view and work interdependently to achieve a shared purpose or goal.
In groups of 2-6 students, develop a PowerPoint presentation that reviews a popular film or show. The work can be current or from the past. RottenTomatoes.com is an allowed resource for finding reviews on this project. Or, your group may find the reviews from the web or library.

Your group should discuss your review of the movie as well and incorporate that into the presentation.
The review should contain
(1 Slide) A title slide showing all group member names
(2 slides) An introduction that announces the film or show, names its producers and featured actors, and gives an overview of the film
(3 slides for plot) Body slides that cover the film’s plot or the show’s connected plot (you can still review a show that has still running and has not shown its climax). Use terms to show knowledge of concepts learned in prior units (plot, climax, epiphany).
(3 slides for reviews)
Body slides showing reviews: if your group ‘thumbs up’ the film
find at least one negative review from RottenTomatoes.com or similar (the internet)
support with two positive reviews from RottenTomatoes.com or similar (the internet) if your group ‘thumbs down’ the film
find at least one positive review from RottenTomatoes.com or similar (the internet)
support with two negative reviews from RottenTomatoes.com or similar (the internet)
(1-2 slides) Close by strongly asserting your group’s review
(1 slide) Works Cited page formatted per MLA showing all critical review sources.
The body may expand upon the above outline if desired.
I’M THE ONLY GROUP MEMBER.
