Film Analysis

The Situation

Your students have completed the viewing of a film and are now reading to analyse specific scenes and the use of filmic conventions.

The Solution

Use this printable for scene analysis with students. For each scene, students record a title on the left-side before identifying specific filmic conventions and their analysis. Ensure that your scenes are not too long. They need to be specifically chosen to link to an overarching theme, idea or issue that you will explore later on. Remember, forward planning is key here. Know where you want your students to go in the upcoming lessons or weeks and use this document to guide them.
