A2 FILM STUDIES: SMALL SCALE RESEARCH PROJECT
Transcript of A2 FILM STUDIES: SMALL SCALE RESEARCH PROJECT
A2 FILM STUDIES
Next year you will need to complete a large coursework element.
This will be worth 50% of your final A2 grade.
Of the 100 marks available for the coursework element, 40 of them go on your Small Scale Research Project.
Think of the ways in which you normally conduct research...
List as many methods as you can...
Auteur (in its broadest sense)
Social, political and cultural studies
Primary research comes from information that you have gathered yourself.
Look at your list of research methods and discuss any that you think might be examples of primary research with your partner...
One example might be conducting a survey.
To introduce the small scale research project
List the possible frameworks that could inform your approach to the project.
Identify the area of research you are interested in pursuing throughout your project.
List the films you will refer to in your project.
Identify at least 3 different types of primary research.
Most of the time our research comes from the work of someone else or a secondary source. This is secondary research...
In pairs, discuss your lists of research methods and try and label all the secondary research methods...
An example would be a newspaper article.
SMALL SCALE RESEARCH PROJECT
Your project must:
involve films you have NOT already studied on the course
be built around 1 of 8 possible frameworks
include a 1,000 catalogue
include a 1,500 word presentation
"Candidates may not choose as a focus film any film they have specialised in elsewhere in the specification."
"The catalogue will contain approximately 10 to 15 items selected from the candidate's total primary and secondary research.
Each catalogue item should be appropriately referenced and be accompanied by a brief note which explains how the particular item is relevant to the area of investigation and what it contributes to the overall research.
The catalogue must conclude with a short paragraph which lists significant items not selected for inclusion in the catalogue, offering brief reasons why."
"The presentation script must take the form of notes for a presentation and could combine subheadings, bullet points, short pieces of connected prose and reference to visual extracts to illustrate the presentation.
Candidates are encouraged to devise a presentation format appropriate to their needs and may employ digital forms such as PowerPoint.
Reference to key items of research from the catalogue must be made explicitly in the presentation. Short credited quotations may be used but care must be taken that the words of the presentation are the candidate's own."
Your project must be based on one focus film that links to your chosen framework.
You must also make appropriate references to at least two other related films.
Representation of women in Disney films...
Scary without the gore: how does the gothic genre create audience pleasures different from conventional horror?
Representation of Europe and Europeans in mainstream thrillers.
Identify the area of research you are interested in pursuing. You do not need to come up with a title at this point.
Chose a framework to inform your approach.
Identify the films you want to use. They should be films that you know well and that you have access to. REMEMBER- you must choose films that haven't already been covered in the course.
REST OF TERM
An initial over-view.- This will be due the first week back after the summer holidays. It must include a paragraph on each of the following areas:
