Surrealism is about the dream state or what challenges what we logically know or are familiar with. Television and film have often used Surrealism to visually make points when words will fall short.
Find Your Surrealist Film Clip:
Taking some inspiration from Salvador Dali, or directors like David Lynch, find a short movie or television show clip that you find is Surreal. Do some research, there are plenty of clips of this nature on YouTube. Be sure tell us the name of the film or television show where the clip is from, and the name of the film’s director, or episode if it’s from television.
Make sure the clip is not too long, maybe 2 and a half minutes max. I have to view all of these while grading each of your submissions.
Tell us why you chose this film clip.
What is it about the clip that made an impression on you?
What do you feel makes it visually effective? Discuss some principles of design that are responsible for the visual impact created in the film clip.
Avoid going to Google for answers to the questions. Adding a little info from a source is OK, but I really want to hear your very own thoughts.
Your Discussion experience will come in three parts:
Part 1: Find your Surrealist film clip and embed it into your discussion.
Part 2: Write a short essay that answers the above questions in detail. Additions to your thread resulting from any added research is fine. But remember to stay on topic and answer the questions.
