Video/Film Review Elements
The title of the film/documentary– just because your headline features the name of the video/film it doesn’t mean you should skip mentioning it in the text. Always name the feature you’ve watched in the introductory paragraph. This may seem like a stupid thing to point out, but it’s one of the most common mistakes that students make.
Summary– the whole point of the review is to summarize the video/film for people who haven’t watched it yet. To make this as effective as possible, always assume that your professor hasn’t seen it either (as mentioned above). Why is this important? You won’t leave out some important details thinking he/she watched it already so they won’t bother. As a reviewer, your job is to explain what happened in the video/film and express whether the filmmaker failed or succeeded. Again, saying you liked or disliked it isn’t a viable comment. Your opinion has to be supported by specific reasons and examples from the feature itself
Significance to the class– How does the content of the video/film fit into your course topic?
Creative elements– filmmakers work hard to include creative elements into their motion pictures. How are these elements important to the video/film in general? Colors can be vivid and lift the atmosphere or mood in the movie or they can be dull and make it seem depressing. Moreover, camera movements and angles also add elements to the story. Take notes of symbols in the story, if any.
