The Big Idea:
Just like theatre, other art forms such as film can be analyzed for its effect.
How do artistic choices impact audiences? What are the differences in analyzing film and theatre? The differences in creating it?
Visual, aural, oral, and kinetic elements express emotions and ideas in both theatre and film.
Objective: Students will demonstrate their ability to combine camera elements, story, and music by sharing their original movie trailer. Students will complete an evaluation sheet on their group and themselves.
