The Doctor Is In


Hi folks,

I’m working through essays at the moment and am going to be hovering over my inbox for the rest of the day and tomorrow. Have a question? Send it to me…

In addition, you need to send me a copy of your product if at all possible. I recommend you use www.wetransfer.com. You can send a file that’s up to 2GB for free.

Click on “Add your files” to upload the film.
If you click the blue circle with 3 dots, you can choose whether to email the link directly, or copy and paste a link. Either is fine.

Thursday

I’m stuck at home again today but will be back tomorrow. Keep working on assignment reports.
As well as the example I printed out for you, there are some more on the SQA Understanding Standards website. These are worth looking at as you can also see the markers’ comments and grades. You can find it by clicking here:

https://www.understandingstandards.org.uk/Subjects/Media/higher/Assignment2017

In addition, keep using appropriate Media terminology (from the Spielberg handout) and refer to your Assignment Workbook (Hitchcock cover) for headings and pointers/hints/tips.

I’m just at the end of an email or a comment on the blog. scottishteacher [at] me [dot] com if you need it. I’ll be back in tomorrow.

Narrative Theory – 1

Click for the PDF… obvs!

Hi everyone… finally managed to sit down with an internet connection!

Here’s part one of the Narrative slides. Remember, you have a rundown of what Narrative means in the Key Aspects Booklet (with Spielberg on the cover)…

Also, at the bottom of this post, you’ll find the Word Version of the Assignment Handbook. I’d recommend downloading it and having a skim through it. We’ll go through the important parts in class next week so don’t feel too intimidated by it. (Yes, it does represent a massive amount of work, but if you keep on top of it, it’s very do-able!)

We discussed in class a few films that I wasn’t sure whether you had seen or not… and it’s a sign of my age that there are many that I know and love that you haven’t heard of! Just tell me… however, the ones I was mentioning in particular with regards Narrative, include The Usual Suspects, E.T. – The Extra-Terrestial, and Jaws. Unusually, I’m not going to link to them because (and especially The Usual Suspects), the real joy is in seeing it without knowing what is going to happen. yes, you can look up the plot, but don’t… you’ll only get one chance to see it for the first time and it is worth it!

Obviously, I’m interested in hearing which films you have seen and rate as well… I’m always keen for suggestions and many of my favourite films have been recommendations or suggestions from pupils so, go for it!

More to come over the weekend, but for now, here’s the Assignment Booklet. We’ll go through it in class as soon as I get the hard copies. 🙂

Guess what happens when you click on Hitchcock!
