Essay #2: Scene Analysis
Due Monday 1/23
Understanding a documentary film requires not only a comprehension of its overall themes, techniques, and ideology, but a sense of how each element contributes to the whole. As a way of practicing your analytic skills on a smaller (but no less important) scale, you will choose and critically analyze a single scene from any of the films we have screened thus far.
If you haven�t already, you probably will need to watch your chosen scene several times to notice different aspects of the scene and to take good notes. Many, though not all, of the films we�ve seen are on reserve at the RISD library.
In your analysis, respond, in the form of a thesis-driven essay (not individual answers and not necessarily in this order), to the following questions:
� Each scene of a documentary film is like a paragraph in a written paper: it presents one main idea that helps support the main idea or argument of the entire film. What is the main idea or purpose of your chosen scene? How do you know?
� What images and sounds strike you in the scene? How do they contribute to your understanding of the main idea of the scene?
What filmmaking techniques (camera movement, focus, narration, music and other sound, mise-en-scene, etc.?) do you notice, and how do they contribute (or fail to contribute) to the scene and to the overall film?
Assume that your reader has seen the film, therefore, you do not need to provide exhaustive plot summary or describe every minute detail of the scene. Instead, say just enough about the scene so your reader knows which scene you are discussing. The rest of your paper should be analysis, not description.
As always, paragraph organization, grammatical clarity, and spelling are vital components of your writing. Please proofread.
Pick just one scene
something like Bob dylan and Donovan meeting in real person
the media portrays them as rivals but they are not
In that scene they just complement each others playing and ends with happy mood
Also discuss how the film was made such as angles and lighting and compositions.
And how the viewers should view it
