Using one or more of the “Required Viewing” films from the 1960s through the 2000s, choose an actor or actress with a major role (from each film if using more than one film) and address his, her, or their use of specific skills of the craft of Acting. Define and discuss the actor’s (or actors’) use of at least four (4) of the following acting skills/tools addressed in the Lectures and in the second half of FLIXACTING: Personalization Emotional Life Imagery Inner Monologue Subtext Physical Conditions Ongoing Physical Life/Secondary Activity Sending and Receiving ALSO – define and discuss the actor’s (or actors’) use of at least one (1) of the following skills: Character Secrets Character Private Moment Endowment Arc of a Scene Painting a Picture with Words REMEMBER – THE SKILLS YOU CHOOSE MUST BE DIFFERENT FROM THE ONES YOU DEFINED AND DISCUSSED IN YOUR MIDTERM.

The Required Viewing Films are: Cool Hand Luke (1967) Girlfriends (1978) The Color Purple (1985) Dances with Wolves (1996) 20th Century Women (2016) 1 When writing your papers, choose specific scenes (or portions of scenes) from the film or films you have chosen that you believe best illustrate the particular acting skill that you are discussing, and parse the scene as it relates to the actor’s use of that skill. DO NOT make sweeping statements about the actor’s use of the skill throughout the entire movie. Be specific, not general. In addition, you may address the specific political, sociological and/or economic issues of a particular decade in light of how you believe they may have influenced the actor’s (or actors’) choices in the film(s). Be specific and thorough in your observations, opinions and arguments. (Do not include long sections devoted to plot details in your paper. The Teaching Assistants and the Instructor have seen these films – more than once! Instead, get directly to the specifics of your arguments). You must amply and specifically reference examples of acting technique covered in the lectures, as well as FLIXACTING to support your arguments. (Quote your sources explicitly, rather than making vague references to an entire chapter or lecture).

All papers must be submitted in MLA Style format. Use a reasonably sized 12-point font, such as Times New Roman. Your paper must be between five (5) and seven (7) pages in length (approximately 250 words per page as a rule of thumb), double-spaced, with 1” margins. Your Works Cited page will not count for or against the length of your paper. Properly cite all sources. Remember — You must copiously cite appropriate and specific portions of both the lectures and required reading to support the arguments in your papers Failure to do so will significantly lower your grade. You may also cite the recommended reading (Acting in Film by Michael Caine) for extra credit. Policies and Instructions 1.
