How might the auteur theory be applied and/or critiqued in terms of your chosen director? Your response may focus on issues of authorship, on narrative, larger themes and/or uses of film style. Worth: 35% Word length: 1575 (essays may be 10% under or over the set word limit) Due date: Week 9 – Friday 5thOctober, 11.00PM (submit via Learnonline) Requirements: • No American-born filmmakers. Your chosen auteur must be pre-approved by your tutor prior to submission (this is the director you will also focus on for Assignment 3 – the Audio-Visual Essay). • Your Research Paper must be grounded in the critical discussion of at least 2 films by your chosen auteur. You must also meet the research requirement of engaging with at least 5 relevant academic references to pass. Students may draw upon the weekly E-readings and the Further Readings to conduct their research. • Your response to the set topic is to be written up in the form of a short academic essay that includes correct citation, an academic reference list and a filmography. It must use the Harvard referencing system as required by UniSA (on the course site under ‘Course Essentials’, see Referencing’ for a guide to the Harvard referencing system). • No essays will be accepted without references or the citation of specific page numbers when quoting or paraphrasing from academic references in the body of the text. • You must include a Reference List and a Filmography that lists the film or any other audio-visual materials used (again, on the course site under ‘Course Essentials’, see ‘Referencing’ for a guide to the Harvard referencing system with regard to what is required for a reference list and a filmography). • Academic references are defined as: scholarly books, scholarly book chapters or peer-reviewed journal articles. The following do not count as appropriate academic sources: DVD commentaries; newspaper articles; blog sites; Wikipedia; IMDB; film and media examples; dictionary entries; online course notes; and lecture notes from this or any other course. The above may be used but you must still use 5 relevant academic sources to pass. Failing Grades: Essays that do not use correct citation, an academic reference list, filmography and the Harvard referencing system, meet the research requirement of engaging with 5 academic sources or are more than 10% under or over the set word limit will not be deemed eligible to pass. Late Submissions: Late submissions will have marks deducted at 5% per day (including weekends) and will be returned with no comments. Essays submitted more than 7 days late will not be accepted and will receive an F2
