After watching all the films in week two’s content


After  watching all the films in Week Two’s content (with the exception of The  Birth of a Nation) discuss at least 5 storytelling/narrative/plot  devices or editing choices that you have seen in recent films or TV  shows. How did these devices or choices help drive the story? Then link  those narrative techniques to the films you watched.

For example: In The Gilded Cage (1915) we see a classic Cinderella  story in which Marie the stepdaughter is treated like a servant compared  with Eloise. We also see a classic story about marrying for wealth vs  love. Both of these themes are common plot device in today’s tv shows  and films.

Respond to at least two of your fellow classmates.
