Film Studies is a genre based class where we will analyze films to create projects related to the movie/film industry. First, I will require everyone to be reading a book of their choice. Second, the students will write an original or adapted film script/screenplay. It is possible that I will require Walter Dean Myers' Book Monster as the classroom textbook or mentor text for the script. Next, we will create a movie poster and movie trailer for your script. And last, we will write a movie review about films we watch in class or films you watch out of class. Might not be a bad idea to write a review about the movie version of Monster that Netflix just released on May 7th. The movie trailer for Monster is looking pretty solid as well.
