Student Assessment
Assessment Two personal assignments for each semester (worth of 40% on final grade or of 20% each) First personal assignment: written analysis of one film scene. The text should include the film genre, the theme, the controling idea and the film acting style. Arrange the film scene in script form. Analysis of the film scene according to the acting technique Second personal assignment: Rehearsal of the script with actors (simply rehearsal process based on analysis) Exams The Film Director Group, after accomplishing the desired result through intensive rehearsals, will shoot the selected film scene. The coverage of the scene can be simple because the emphasis should be on acting and not on shooting. Finally the film director group should film its work experience evaluation and deliver together with the filmed scene. This coursework worth of 60% on final grade should be handled on exam day in digital form (MP4).
