Montage vs. Long Take Wars

Inspired by Top Chef‘s “Restaurant Wars,” you will be assigned to a subgroup of 4 for this project. Groups will then draw at random either “montage” or “long take.” Working together (as team work is an essential part of media production), each group will create a film limited to either montage or long shot. Further details for restrictions and possibilities for this assignment will be distributed when we break up into groups in class.

The groups will then write an online 250-500 word manifesto associated with their project, and will  fight out the effectiveness of each before a panel of their peers.

Each participant will also write a 500 word assessment of the process and outcome of their group work, with substantive reference to the concepts raised in class discussion and reading.
