We returned to make sure our Weebly websites were in order for our first blog prompt.
We watched "A Tribute to Cinema" video to think about our prompt.
"Why do you go to watch movies in the theater? If you don't go to the theater why do you think others do?
After blogging our responses the class discussed a variety of reasons that people enjoy watching film in the cinema. When we finished discussing the prompt the class headed to the gymnasium to get class pictures taken. Returning to class we discussed the material covered in the homework from Wednesday (pages 1-17 in Movies and Meaning). We worked on filling out a guided note sheet over the chapter and had a discussion about the structural elements of film.
We then watched the first 15 minutes of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty again looking at how the character of Walter is developed and enhanced through the films composition, framing, and camera shots.
