Genres and Genres Film

Ashford 3: - Week 2 - Assignment Genres and Genre Film After reviewing the discussion of genre in Chapter 4 of Film: From Watching to Seeing, demonstrate your understanding of one selected genre using a feature-length film. Note: Several films are listed in Chapter 4 as emblematic of a specific genre. You are allowed to choose a film or genre not mentioned in Chapter 4, but you are strongly encouraged to email your professor to receive approval before doing so. In 800 to 1200 words Explain genre theory and, using Chapter 4 of the text as a reference, thoroughly describe the conventions and attributes of your selected genre. Identify a feature-length film that fits this genre and provide a basic summary of the movie. As you develop this summary, remember the differences between a film’s story and a film’s plot and how these differences can lead to the inclusion of genre elements. Interpret at least two genre conventions exhibited in your chosen feature-length film that help classify it in the selected genre. Be sure to provide a specific example of each convention (e.g., a particular scene or plot component). Provide an example of a third convention from your chosen feature-length film and explain how this convention expands the boundaries of the specified genre. Your paper should be organized around a thesis statement that focuses on how your chosen feature-length film both aligns with and expands upon your chosen genre. The paper must be 800 to 1200 words in length (excluding title and reference pages), and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Review the Week Two sample paper, which provides an example of a well-developed analysis as well as insight on composition. You must use at least two scholarly sources other than the textbook to support your claims. Refer to the ENG225 Research Guide in the Ashford University Library for guidance and to locate your sources. Cite your sources (including the feature-length film) within the text of your paper and on the reference page. For information regarding APA, including samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center. Please note that if you opt to write about the same film in your Final Film Critique, applicable pieces of this assignment can be used to write that assignment. Please also note that you should reflect on and revise this assignment based on the instructor’s feedback before you incorporate it into the Final Film Critique. ur first essay assignment is due this week, and I want to go over the key strategies for earning the big grade. These keys are not THE way of writing this essay; rather, it is only ONE SAFE WAY of doing well. (There are many approaches, but I like to help out those who are less confidant writers.) This essay has FOUR parts. Consider following this structure: Part One: Introduction with genre definition and thesis. Choose a genre, such as mystery, action, thriller, musical, and so forth. And don’t forget that many films are combinations. Snow White is a fantasy musical. Oblivion is a scifi action film. And so on! Define your genre and discuss the most important genre elements. Include your thesis. Remember that this one is MOSTLY written for you, as you need to argue that your chosen film IS an example of the genre, but that, at least in one important way, it EXPANDS THE GENRE by including an important element that DOESN’T FIT the genre. This part could be done in one lengthy paragraph. Part Two: The film and its story and plot. BRIEFLY summarize the film. Do not spend more than 5 or 6 sentences on the summary. Any more than that and you will have too much time dedicated to it. Discuss how the STORY and PLOT of the film differ and how the events are presented in a way that supports the genre you have identified. (You will need to show that you understand the difference between story and plot.) This part should be about two paragraphs. Part Three: The Genre Elements of your film Discuss one element of your chosen genre that is in your film; provide a SPECIFIC example from your film; and show how it fulfills that genre. Discuss a second element of your chosen genre that is in your film; provide a SPECIFIC example from your film; and show how it fulfills that genre. This part should be about two paragraphs. Part Four: Expanding the Genre / Conclusion Choose a specific element of the film that does NOT fulfill your chosen genre. For example, Snow White is a musical fantasy, but the dwarves are hilarious and expand the genre with COMEDY! Discuss how the addition of this non-genre element adds to (or detracts from) the effectiveness of the film. This part should be just one paragraph long. If you follow this approach, your essay will be 6 paragraphs long, which is plenty. “Yes, Dr. Scott! But what else do I need to know?” These things! Do not PLAGIARIZE! That will have a big impact on your grade. There is a lengthier discussion in the faculty expectations, but, if you are not sure about how to avoid it, watch this tutorial: This essay has FOUR parts.
