Due in your Google Drive Folder Friday, Mar. 14 by 11:00 PM.
Clocking in at roughly 3 pages (typed, double-spaced, 1″ margins all around), your individual paper should address the “backstory” and makeup of your group project. For example, why did you and your group select certain clips/images and ignore others, why did you take on the argument you did, and what might others say in response to your argument (i.e., why might someone disagree with your group’s thesis, and how would you respond to that?). As well, this paper should consider the technical aspects of the project: the ordering of evidence, shot/scene transitions used, background music and narration style chosen, etc. and how these decisions support your thesis and the overall scope of the video essay. Finally, the paper should include a Works Cited, listing all films cited in the project and any other primary or secondary sources used to support or refute the argument (e.g., our readings, tweets, Tumblr posts, message boards, etc.)
For the evaluation, please type detailed answers in paragraph form to the following questions. Like all graded assignments, this information will be kept confidential.
Of what part of the assignment were you primarily in charge? Did someone within the group assign you this task, or did you volunteer for it? Do you feel that you completed it in an efficient and timely manner? Explain.
About how much time (i.e., increments of hours or days) did you spend on the part of the project that you were in charge of? Do you feel that you spent any more time on it than the other members of your group? Explain.
Do you feel the final video essay flows well, or can you detect strengths and weaknesses at times? How so? Where?
List any other comments, positive or negative, about the group in which you worked and/or the project itself.
