A2 Film Studies Reflective Analysis

  1. 1. A2  Film  Studies  Reflective  Analysis  Guidelines:  Approximately  1,000  words-­‐  essentially  the  minimum  is  900  and  the  maximum  1,100  The  exam  board  gives  you  3  options:   -­‐ A  production  blog   -­‐ A  DVD  commentary   -­‐ A  written  analysis  I  would  highly  recommend  you  simply  do  the  written  analysis.  While  it  seems  boring,  the  other  two  are  quite  difficult  to  control  in  terms  of  word  count  and  focus  and  you  will  not  get  any  extra  marks  for  doing  either  of  them.  If  you  really  want  to  do  a  DVD  commentary,  please  note  that  I  will  ask  you  to  do  a  written  analysis  regardless-­‐  ‘winging  it’  for  an  assessed  piece  of  work  is  not  a  good  idea.  Further  Guidance:    The  exam  board  rightly  finds  it  unrealistic  that  you  will  be  able  to  complete  an  entire  production  report  highlighting  everything  that  went  well  or  wrong.  Instead,  they  advise  you  to  adopt  the  same  perspective  as  your  AS  micro  analysis,  focusing  on  aspects  of  your  production  rather  than  providing  a  comprehensive  overview  of  the  production  process.  As  a  starting  point:   -­‐ You  may  wish  in  your  groups  to  think  of  5  scenes  of  your  production  that  you  will  definitely   discuss.  What  creative  decisions  did  you  make?  Were  they  the  right  ones?  How  were  they   affected  by  your  aims  &  contexts?   -­‐ You  also  will  need  to  focus  somewhat  on  your  role  within  the  production.  Though  obviously   most  of  you  collaborated  on  each  part  of  the  production,  you  were  still  responsible  for   overseeing  one  aspect  of  it.  Focus  on  what  your  role  entailed  in  the  context  of  particular   scenes.  Marking  Criteria  for  Reflective  Analysis:  Level  4  (12-­‐15  marks)  •  A  detailed  and  perceptive  account  of  the  creative  process  and  production  •  Excellent,  perceptive  consideration  of  the  relative  success  of  the  product  in  relation  to  its  aims,  audience  and  context  •  An  excellent  sense  of  how  far  it  has  been  possible  to  work  creatively  within  the  conventions  of  the  chosen  product’s  medium.  Quality  of  (written)  communication  •  Excellently  structured  and  accurate  use  of  appropriate  language  to  communicate  clearly.
