September 22, 2011

Type up an 8-10 sentence paragraph (in MLA format) on the two clips you saw in class today and the choices each director made. Did one emphasize different parts of the scene than the other? What effect did this have on you as a viewer and how you understood the scene? Which version (so far) seems more effective? Why?

Be very specific in your response. Use examples from the films. Period 6, please submit this response to as well as printing it out. I will give you the enrollment passwords in class today.
