Animation Assignment #4

For this assignment you will need to analyze a film or TV series of your choosing. Please note that if you choose a TV series (you must have watched all or most of the series and closely analyze at least two episodes.)

Analyze the film in relation to one of the topics we have discussed in class. You must use at least two different readings from class and at least one outside reading (not a website) you have done in order to back up your argument. Make sure information is properly cited using MLA or Chicago Manual of Style.

Things to consider are: history of genre, style, filmmaker, critical/cultural analysis, theoretical underpinning of your argument, and the overall structure of your essay.

Use specific examples from the film/TV series to back your argument. Do NOT spend time on plot summary.

You will be graded on the strength of your thesis and how well you utilize the readings in relation to the text you are writing about.

Your paper should be 4-6 pages in length. Graduate student papers should be 6-10 pages. Hard copies should be turned in April 4th in class.
