As part of our monthly movie review session, this time we have screened an Indian Classic for our students of Diploma in Sound Engineering.
Usually we screen Indian as well as world classics alternatively in our movie review sessions in which students will be taking notes about the movie and express their opinion as a note.
The students are free to express whatever be their opinion about the movie. If criticism is raised, then they have to support it with facts.
These type of movie review session will help the students to evaluate various aspects of the movie.
The session actually helps to analyze the mechanics of the movie and interpret the various components that came together in the movie with special outlook on Sound Engineering, Music Recording, Background Score etc.
In the review note the students are supposed to gather general facts about the movie and judge whether the film reflect on a current event or contemporary issue? Does the film seem to have a message, or does it attempt to elicit a specific response or emotion from the audience? Does the film connect with you on a personal level?
Tips for those students who are writing a review
1) Keep your writing clear and easy to understand.
2) Don’t use too much technical filmmaking jargon, and make your language crisp and accessible.
