Watch a film of your choice from one of the following genres: Western, Horror, Sci-Fi, Superhero. In one paragraph write a synopsis of the film. Then, make a list of signs and symbols in the movie that help sell the genre (not the plot). Think props, sounds, wardrobe, etc. Be specific. Provide a reason why each ‘icon’ strengthens that narrative or what the symbolism behind it means. Be sure to write your reasons/meanings in full sentences.

Example: In a Western film I’d expect to see the desert, an old time saloon, a gun fight, a sheriff, western style clothing, horses, gold, etc. These ‘icons’ allow you to immediately know what type of film you are watching.

Here’s what you do:
1. While watching the film make your list of things that are typical to the genre. What make it a horror? western? sci-fi? Superhero? Don’t be too vague here. Make it clear you are watching one specific film. Think props, sounds, wardrobe, etc. Remember this is about the genre NOT the plot. Think of the things you see in EVERY film of this type. This is the type of iconography I’m looking for. You should have a minimum of 6 icons on your list.
2. Write a synopsis. This is a summary of the film from beginning to end. How would you tell someone what happened from the start to the end spoilers and all in two paragraphs making sure you covered the main points? Make sure this is in your own words! Don’t rely on Netflix or IMBD to help you out or you’ll get a zero for plagiarism.
3. Take your list (minimum of 6 items) and write a sentence or more about each ‘icon’ on it. Provide a reason why each ‘icon’ strengthens that narrative or what the symbolism behind it means. Be sure to write your reasons/meanings in full sentences.
