Representation of a character in a film

Representation of a character in a film.


How long in duration are most of the shots?

At what points are the shots, or “takes” longer than others? How does this make a difference?

Is the editing rhythmic, or in tune with music?

Does the editing make me comfortable or confused?

Does the editing follow a logical progression, or does it feel like some spaces in time are “left out”?

Are the transitions between scenes or takes a simple “cut,” or are there dissolves, or black outs?

Film Analysis: Short Written Assignment

Write a short essay of about 2-3 paragraphs that describes your analysis of the film.  Choose 2-3 key scenes, and develop an analysis that provides insight into how the filmmakers tell the story.

Focus your analysis

This short essay of film analysis will attend to how the filmmakers have arranged the compositional elements of the film specifically within your choice of key scenes.  The essay should provide insight into how the filmmakers develop characters, narrate significant moments in the plot structure, or develop a theme on a cultural or societal issue.  Your analysis should explore how the specific film techniques are used to produce meaning.  For example, a film analysis might look at mis-en-scene and perspective to discuss how these elements work together to develop a change in a character’s behavior or beliefs.  To conduct this type of analysis you can ask:

What effects are created in the scene(s) and what is their purpose?

How does this scene represent a cultural or societal issue?

How does the film represent a character?

Compose a thesis

Your essay should have a thesis statement of 1-2 sentences that tells your reader the specific focus of your analysis.

Write the short essay

Write a 2-3 paragraph analysis for the film and the specific scenes of your analysis.  Your short essay should have a thesis statement, supporting evidence, and provide a new understanding of the film. The detailed notes from your analysis of the formal elements will help you to provide concrete evidence to support your thesis and insights.

Be sure to:

  • The focus is on analysis not narration.
  • Write your essay using MLA format for the heading, title, and format of the paper.
  • Hand in your assignment to the proper dropbox in this module as a .docx or PDF file.
