For this assignment, I want you to watch and study repeatedly ((The Shawshank Redemption)) (i.e. one you own or can rent) and analyze one of the filmâ€™s elements that we have studied in class from Chapters 3, 4, or 7 in The Art of Watching Film. Specifically, you may examine a fictional or dramatic element discussed in Chapter 3 (the elements of a good story, the title, the conflict(s), characterization of a specific character, allegory, symbolism, or irony); or you may examine an element of visual design discussed in Chapter 4 (setting, costume design and makeup, or lighting); or you may examine the use of color as discussed in Chapter 7. Fully discuss how the film uses this element and how this element contributes to the film as a whole.
essay should be 4-5 double spaced, typed pages (not including the Works Cited) with one-inch margins. Use Times New Roman or Courier New font. Consult your Course Schedule for the due date.
