Make sure the referencing is in MHRA style, same with bibliography and filmography. Use footnotes, no endnotes.
You will be assessed on your understanding of horror as it is specifically manifest within the film of your choice. You will need to combine film analysis with some concise discussion of the debates or controversies that are most relevant to understanding its particular example of horror.
You will need to provide an argument related to the question, and to prove it by finding particular examples. These examples may include specific scenes or motifs which either illustrate its status as horror or complicate it – or both at once.
In addition to that you will be assessed on the breadth of knowledge particularly through further reading, independent research, and an awareness of films (not including films listed below)
You will need to demonstrate that you have undertaken a sufficient amount of
reading; that you have understood the basic parameters and arguments of the texts you are discussing, and that you have used bibliographical and referencing conventions properly. You will be judged on how well you comprehend explicitly theoretical texts, how you synthesise critical information, how you construct and structure a coherent and convincing argument, and on your abilities to interpret visual and narrative information.
Essay most not be based on these films:
* Paranormal activity

For this module, your essay must study in detail the work of one particular media artist (or collaborative team); this could be, but does not have to be, one of the artists on our list. It is similar in content to the Report and should:
contain an investigative, open-ended research question to guide your work
contain an argument or assertion about the artist’s (or group’s) work which is supported; this is your (perhaps contentious) answer to the question above
describe how that artist’s work is framed and presented by the artist and by others
describe how it engages with critical / theoretical / semantic / formal debates with reference to specific theorists
culturally contextualise the work or make connections between it and the work other artists (in any medium)
describe how it has evolved over time and offer some rationales / arguments for this evolution
include your own original critical analysis of key projects by your chosen artist
describe how the student’s own creative media practice engages with similar issues/debates and relates to them, contests them and/or extends them (NB: While precise compartmentalisation will be impossible, roughly 80% of the essay material should address the chosen artist and 20% should address the student’s own evolving creative media practice. It is vital to the section contextualizing the student’s own work that it do so with reference to cultural / critical / social / aesthetic theory. That is to say: it should not be too impressionistic and should reference others.)
Relevant learning outcomes:

Producing succinct summaries and comparison of arguments and debates.
Synthesising connections between cultural/philosophic/political/sociological theory and creative media.
Carrying out research tasks using a range of sources.
Working independently and managing time
Developing self-reflexivity about students’ own creative media work and an ability to frame that work in terms of the media creatives and ideas presented on this module.

The second part of the semester includes readings and videos on the topic of the types of stages, set design, costume design, lighting design, and sound design. The following project will offer you the opportunity to develop ideas of what your short play would look like on stage.
Following are the steps you will follow to create what you will finally submit as an explanation of what your play would look like on stage.
Step 1
Briefly explain what is happening in the scene.
Step 2
On what kind of stage will your play be performed and why?
Step 3
How will the set on stage look for this play? Discuss how you would design the scene. What kind of furniture or objects will you have in the scene? Will there be any kind of background to the set that will aid in the audience recognizing where it takes place? There may be other elements that you want to add or show by using pictures or drawings or in some way, your own creativity.
Step 4
What would the costumes look like? What colors and why? What style and why?
Step 5
Include in your discussion how you would light the scene, what colors or color would you use? and why would you use the colors and the style of lighting? For example, the use of a dark shadowy lighting provides mystery in the scene.
Step 6
Finally include what kind of sound, if any, would you use to enhance the scene or if you aren’t using sound, why not? This could include special effect sounds, music, etc.
