Topic: Video; The Dark Knight analysis Written Assignment

This end-of-term written assignment (600 – 800 words, typewritten) will be an examination and analysis of a selected film clip, and the role of music—and more broadly, the role of sound—within that clip, as it interacts with the film’s visual track. Each student will select a clip between one and three minutes in length (with perhaps some flexibility in length, one way or the other, depending on the clip). A “first-come, first-claimed” set of sign-up boards is now available. Each student must select a film clip (by title and times) that has not already been claimed. An extensive list of films is provided (below) from which to select a clip.

PLEASE NOTE: You may select a film that someone else has already selected. Two or more of you can select the same film. But you must select a film clip that is uniquely your own. And you must make your selection from one of the films listed below.

Your paper provides an opportunity to apply the O.A.R.S model of examination (Observation, Analysis, Reflection, Synthesis), which has been practiced in the discussion boards, and which has been repeatedly modeled in the lessons of this course. The key is to focus, and to examine in detail.

Here are some more tips about writing your paper: You can assume the reader has seen the film, but you still want to orient your reader with a brief introduction of your topic. Similarly, at the end of your paper, you want a conclusion that provides insight and synthesis–stating the sorts of things that come from reflecting on the observations and analysis that make up the “meat” of your paper.
