DIY Analysis/Final Paper

Your final 5-7 page paper will use close, shot-by-shot analysis to interrogate a larger concept discussed in class. You will choose one media text (film, TV series, or video game) or, at most, compare two media texts. These essays can focus on screenings from class but do not need to; you can choose any media text that you would like to work on.

Be sure to delineate a thesis argument and follow that argument throughout your essay. You must draw on two required readings from the semester (beyond Film Experience and the Smith).

Be sure to draft, revise, and proofread this essay. Use MLA format for citation.

Your final essay is due on May 5th (Monday) by 11PM, uploaded to Moodle here.
