Professor Liss
Introduction to Film Analysis Paper Assignment

Please write a five paragraph essay regarding some aspect of film studies. The essay should focus on film studies and while I will not prevent you from turning in this paper for another class, it should not be an English, philosophy, psychology or sociology paper. Rather, it should directly bear on concepts we discussed in class and related to readings or your textbook. Please cite appropriately. The paper should be thematic in nature and not biographical. For example, you may write an essay on timesequencing in Quinton Tarantino films and each argumentative paragraph could utilize an example from his work. Other topic examples would include racism, science fiction, violence against minorities, special effects, Japanese minimalism, anime, and the like. I have designed this assignment to be quite general so you can be creative.

You are not writing a film review or a plot summary but rather an argumentative paper with a thesis. This paper requires adequate source citation. You may use directors cuts, critical reviews or DVD shorts as your evidence. The essay should have an introduction and a conclusion, as well as three-evidence based paragraphs. The evidence based paragraphs should be in the format of a claim sentence, followed by data or evidence from an expert source that you have researched and end with a few sentences of your own analysis (paragraph = claim, data and analysis). This paper should utilize several unique sources. This is
an opportunity for you to be creative and I would like you to choose a subject that you find interesting.
