Thinking about how film “works” on us

Additionally, this assignment will have you actively practice observing, summarizing, and analyzing a very short film (one with little to no dialogue) to focus on what the filmmaker is showing, but more importantly HOW they are showing it. The Writing TaskWrite summaries for the articles in the module for this week. You can be brief here, but write in full sentences and make sure you are demonstrating that you understood the articles’ topics and major claims/conclusions.Just as writers choose their words and organize their thoughts based on any number of rhetorical considerations, the author of visual documents thinks no differently. The author/creator take great care to ensure that their productions are visually appealing and rhetorically effective.Step 1: complete a brief, but appropriately detailed description of the video: “Hotel 22″Step 2: analyze the rhetoric (especially as it relates to the articles you just read!) of the film. What this means is the argument you think the film is making/gesturing toward and what techniques it is using to do so. What does the text seem to be telling viewers through its composition and elements?The goal of any rhetorical analysis is to demonstrate your understanding of how the piece communicates its messages and meanings. Your readings throughout this essay block have been about rhetoric, logic, and making certain that you can both recognize and utilize the elements of good argumentation, and spot and eliminate the elements that weaken a position. Talk a bit about why this matters, not just in a course about critical thinking, but much, much more importantly, in day to day living. Note: you are not looking to place a value judgment on the rhetoric, and if there is an implicit or implied argument you are not taking a side, but rather just deciphering it at this point.
