We'll screen your sweded films on Monday, and then discuss your answers to the simple questions for Task 2 on Tuesday. You'll have Friday to work on the presentation task in class, and you'll do these presentations starting Monday 1st Feb.
No two people will present on the same film, so as soon as you let me know which film you want to present on (you need to have the Region 2 DVD to play the opening or, better still, use software to extract the opening and save as an MP4/avi/Quictime file), I'll add details to the list below the document.
On Weds/Thurs next week I'll demonstrate, using some random film openings, the sort of things you should consider - and get the ball rolling on your investigation into the codes and conventions of film openings.
Remember, from this point on, everything you do, whether in class or as homework, needs to be blogged!
