The first thing you will do once you’ve selected your chosen film is conduct some research into the film.
This must be done independently, your teacher cannot do this for you. However, we will share our findings in film focused seminars during the week after the screenings:
- 26th – 28th September.
Your teachers have done some research into the following broad macro areas:
- Film Analysis & Motifs
- Filmmakers (Auteur)
Read through teachers’ the research document and identify one quote from each section that you think you could drop into a textual analysis essay
You should use this use document to copy in the quote, cite the reference (given in the document) and explain how this might be used in your textual analysis.
Task 2 – Context Research
When you do your own research in the week after the screening, you should find most/all of the following research sources to help you understand the macro and context of the film as understood by others. For 28 Days we have found them for you and they are listed below the sub heading.
Blogs / Websites (Detailed Analysis)
We have also got the ‘Beyond Hammer: British Horror Cinema Since 1970’ James Rose. There is a useful chapter in book this on 28 Days Later.
We are going to power read this chapter on 28 Days Later and identify some of the key ideas discussed.
