Summer Video Project for Media Arts Students

I Want students aware of the choices directors make and the way putting two clips together (juxtaposing) creates the movie experience. Choose one of the two writing projects below (remember you can borrow videos from the public library):

Watch the documentary movie HOOP DREAMS & write 200 words about: The director made choices of what to include in the movie & what clips to put together. Discuss examples of how the director’s choices worked well (or not). Alternative movies: 

Watch the movie THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY & write 200 words about: Discuss director’s choices on camera, music, editing. Give examples of how these choices are effective (or not). Alternative movies: REAR WINDOW, THE GODFATHER II
