Discuss the use of editing (see Chapter 6) in two of the following: North by Northwest, The Fisher King, Lost in Translation, Moulin Rouge, March of the Penguins, One Week. You may wish to consider the impact of editing on point of view or the impact of editing on the compression of time in film. Other possibilities include relating editing to movement or shots/angles, but make sure your essay stays focused on editing.Discuss the use of editing (see Chapter 6) in two of the following: North by Northwest, The Fisher King, Lost in Translation, Moulin Rouge, March of the Penguins, One Week. You may wish to consider the impact of editing on point of view or the impact of editing on the compression of time in film. Other possibilities include relating editing to movement or shots/angles, but make sure your essay stays focused on editing.You must quote from a scholarly journal article (select peer reviewed when you do your database search), from a book chapter in an edited collection or from a scholarly monograph/book to fulfill the research requirement. Do not quote from an introductory style textbook such as an introduction to film book. Check with me if you have any doubts about the appropriateness of your source.
You may use more than one scholarly source but the focus should be on your analysis, not on the secondary sources so try to restrict yourself to no more than two scholarly/peer reviewed sources (this does not include the Giannetti and Leach textbook but you need to list this book in the works cited if you quote from it]. Secondary material is material written about either the films or the techniques used to make the films. You must include a quotation that is not in the class textbook (You may still cite from the textbook but this is not equivalent to the kinds of scholarly studies listed above). The UNBC library has several databases with full text, peer-reviewed journal articles about film techniques or specific films but you may also use scholarly book length studies about film (that are not textbooks. ). Avoid citing book reviews.When you compare/contrast films or concepts, you will consider similarities and differences in the two films. You need to make explicit parallels and distinctions between the works. For example, if you discuss sound in one film and then begin discussing the second film, you need to indicate how film 2 has some parallels with film 1, but then you may decide that the distinctions/differences outweigh the few similarities. Remember to say how film 2 is different. Do not just say you intend to explore differences and then expect your reader to figure it out on her own.
*When discussing two films, you usually discuss the older film (the film that was released earlier) before you analyze the more recent film.
**Any deviations from any of the above points/standards including formatting issues will result in a lower mark.
