INSTRUCTIONS:  Correctly identify the most precise vocabulary terms for the form

INSTRUCTIONS: 
Correctly identify the most precise vocabulary terms for the formal aspects of the scenes, sequences, or shots in the clips as well as to interpret the meaning of some of the formal aspects to the best of your ability given your knowledge of the film in question and course concepts. If a precise term for what you see is given in the textbook, the correct answer will be that term not a broad term that may include those types of formal elements. For example, say you were shown a scene in which jump cut editing is used, and you are asked to identify the editing. You write “cuts” or “disjunctive editing”. Even though cuts are used to create a jump-cut and jump cuts are a type of disjunctive editing, these answers would be wrong because these are not the most precise answers you could give given what you should know at this point.
Furthermore, do not use vocabulary that does not appear in the textbook, and do not substitute a description of something for its proper vocabulary term, FOR EXAMPLE, do not write, “…then the camera moves closer to the character to put them in a close shot…” 
when it would be more accurate to write, “…then the camera zooms in to a medium close-up on Brody…”). 
Reference the textbook and provide proper citations.
