FINAL PROJECT GALLERY

Everyone did  a  great job this semester so I figured we should showcase everyone’s work here. Below you’ll find everyone’s project from this semester.

1. GOING BEHIND THE SCENES
Students looked at the technical wizardry behind filmmaking, looking at movie trailers, MPAA ratings, subbing & dubbing, and even hairstyles. Some films included in the following videos: The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Big Lebowski, X Men Days of Future Past, Slumdog Millionaire and Rambo. 

Joy’s The Evolution Of The Movie Trailer

Melanie’s The Level of Violence Between Rated PG-13 and Rated R Movies

Eurie’s SUB-A-DUB-DUB: THE DEBATE OVER SUBBING AND DUBBING

Ben S’s The Versatility of Long-haired Men in Movies

Lisa Maria’s Guess the Film From The Props!

2. THE CINEMATIC MIND
Cinema allows us to explore aspects of human psychology in visual ways. The following videos look at the various ways different states of mind are represented on screen. Some films included in the following videos: Vertigo, Midnight in Paris, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Shutter Island, Carrie, American Psycho and The Vow.

Amanda’s Lost – Supercut

Kimberly’s Schizophrenia at the Movies

Greg’s TO SCARE AN AUDIENCE

3. IT’S ALL THE SAME THING
The supercut is perhaps the clearest way we can show how some tropes, images and characters are constantly recycled by Hollywood. Take a look at the following videos which focus on some of the most egregious clichés in Disney and action/adventure films. Some films included in the following videos: Sleeping Beauty, The Matrix, Saturday Night Fever, Frozen, Bruce Almighty and Good Morning Vietnam.

Jodiann’s The Evolution of the Disney Princess Dream

Jessica’s Disney’s Cliché Nature

Gay Men on Screen: “A Place for Us”

My project focuses on the various representations of gay men on screen (both silver and small).

A Place for Us

Includes clips from The Maltese Falcon (1941) all the way up to American Horror Story: Freakshow (2014), pausing on important LGBT representations (United States of Tara, In & Out, Will & Grace, The Birdcage, Glee, My Best Friend’s Wedding, etc.).

This first part is subtitled “Coming Out” and works to showcase the “I’m gay” trope, followed closely by the flamboyant, dancing queen figure before morphing into a showcase of various queer (or gay-coded) villains, from Xerxes in 300 to Norman Bates in Psycho.

A sneak peak at my process, from iMovie:

Signing Out Equipment + Oral Presentations Schedule

To book time in the Plangere Culture Lab, email either Paul Bielecki or Jess Gonzalez (our multimedia tutor). They will work with you to try to match you with open time that will fit their schedule, but they cannot, and will not accommodate students who show up without any prior email contact.

As for checking out equipment – please note that you can check out flip cameras or Vixia cameras from the PCL for several weeks (or, until there is a significant need for an equipment recall), but the Snowball USB mics cannot be taken out of the PCL. Students needing to do any type of audio recording with the Snowballs will need to fill out equipment reservation form online. This form should be used for reserving cameras and microphone equipment.
