Your task is to write a production review for the play Fucking A by Suzan Lori Parks
There must be zero plagiarism, this will be checked by myself. I could not find any video link for the play. so you can watch a bunch of youtube videos about the play and just write about that and the production. but there must be zero plagiarism. So that means you must watch the video of the entire play, and then write the production review. Follow the instructions and guidelines below:
You must write one short (2-3 page) review in response to the production. The response should focus on the theatrical elements of the productions, such as directing, acting, scenic design, costume, lighting, sound design, and music. The response will provide you with opportunities to apply the technique of dramatic analysis and theatrical review that you will learn in the class. These may address the following questions:
How did the play affect you and why?
What was the setting/ world of the play? When was it set and why?
Which design elements transported you or were most effective in constructing the world of the play?
What was the overarching theme of the play or what themes did the play engage with?
Would you have done anything differently or have thoughts on what may have improved the production?
Why is this play important for audiences today?
Please be detailed and provide specific examples.
DO NOT simply write a summary or plot of the play.

Please discuss how Searching operates aesthetically, thematically or narratively

Please discuss how Searching operates aesthetically, thematically or narratively within “new media” contexts. First, provide a brief summary of the film that elucidates its basic structure, plot points and characters. Second, analyze one or two scenes from Searching with attention to its storytelling strategies and formal attributes. Please cite Henry Jenkins, Sam Ford, and Joshua Green’s chapter “Designing for Spreadability” for context/support.
The response should be approximately 1.5-2 pages double-spaced (around 300-500 words) and you might consider some of the following questions:
How does Searching either challenge the politics of “spreadable” media or present itself as a “spreadable” text? In what ways does the film engage and/or critique digital media platforms in the Web 2.0 era?
How would we define Searching in terms of genre and how/why so? In what ways does it align with or deviate from the aesthetic/narrative strategies of other “mystery” films from class? What stands out about the film’s modes of production, distribution, marketing, and/or exhibition? How do these methods of cultural dissemination differ from those that Thomas Schatz describes in relation to Jaws’ 1975 release?
Which audiences does the film seem targeted toward, and how/why so? Would we describe Searching as either a “global” or “transmedia” film? Why or why not?
How do the film’s form and style speak to its thematic interventions about technology and connectivity?

Message Board 12: Representational Reckonings in the “Post-Network” Era
88 unread replies.88 replies.
Please respond to this week’s screenings, readings, and lecture materials in an organized post that cites specific details from the programs and articles under discussion. You should actively engage at least one of this week’s or last week’s readings (choose from L.S. Kim’s “Be the One That You Want: Asian Americans in Television Culture, Onscreen and Beyond” and Madhavi Mallapragada’s “The Problem with Apu, Whiteness, and Racial Hierarchies in US Media Industries”) to discuss at least one of this week’s programs (choose from Fresh Off the Boat and Master of None). Please address specific and relevant aesthetic/thematic/narrative details about the screenings and use direct quotes or substantive paraphrases of the readings. You may start with some summary but synopsis should not comprise the bulk of your post. Please note that you will NOT be able to view your classmates’ writings until after you have submitted. I encourage you, though, to interact with/respond to your classmates’ posts after completing your own – this will help prepare all of us for in-class discussion on Wednesday. Below are a few questions that you may choose to address (though you are welcome to reply in any way that makes sense and about other topics not posed here):
Who do these programs seem targeted toward and how do we know? Do they seem more “niche” or “mass” in terms of their narrative/stylistic logics? In what ways do they fit with or push back against ABC’s and Netflix’s 2010s brand identities?
With which characters/perspectives are we meant to sympathize with in each episode? What are the possibilities and limitations of their sociopolitical interventions? How do the representational politics of these episodes compare with those of 1970s “relevance” sitcoms, 1980s “reconciliation/recuperation” programs, or 1990s/2000s “complex” shows? In what ways do they comment on or engage with television/broadcast history?
How do Fresh Off the Boat and/or Master of None align with or contradict Kim’s predictions about Asian American representations/industry engagement in “Be the One that You Want”? How do these shows fit into the historical narrative that she recounts?

Prompt: We learned about loglines at the beginning of the course. Now that you’

Prompt: We learned about loglines at the beginning of the course. Now that you’ve gotten a good idea of your own story, let’s revisit. As a reminder, a logline is a one-sentence description of your film. First, you describe the protagonist and his/her/their goal, then follow with a “but” that reveals the obstacle. Example: A suburban dad in the midst of a mid-life crisis quits his job to rediscover joy and seduce a teenage beauty, but both his wife and neighbor want to kill the man he becomes. Following this formula, rewrite your film’s logline now that you’ve gotten a much clearer sense of your film.
Reflect back on the past ten weeks. What was the most challenging part of writing the first 10 pages, and of the course in general? The most enjoyable?
Now that you have profiled your story and written the first sequence, what are your plans for completing the screenplay or using what you’ve learned in this class in another way?
Previous log line
Cast Members: Narrator, Eton Musch, Angeline (Secretary), General Manager, a suing resident,
and Dr. Gonzales
‘The Great Turn.’ ‘When a rich man discovers and experiences the life of a plastic-ridden earth
in later years, he teams up with doctors from his past parallel life to find out what caused the
decline of mother earth.’

Then identify the section you are responding as described below in the instructions.
IMPORTANT: Do not submit a series of paragraphs without identifying what lettered and numbered section you are responding to.
This assists you in getting credited properly for you work. It also assists your instructor and the G.A. in grading your assignment efficiently.
Thank you for your help on this.
Topic: Two Options: Choose one only.
Option 1
Choose one film that we studied this semester and write a 4–5-page essay in prose responding to the following prompt. It contains 1-3. The total points are 25.
Prompt: Explain specifically why the film you selected had a strong impact on you in terms of the central debate and moral position championed in the film which were in contrast to those you held prior to the viewing of the film. It is not required that the film changed your view. See number Option 1 #3.
Your essay is required to have an introductory paragraph explaining the film you have chosen and why. Explain the ideas that challenged you without going into a great deal on scene detail in the introductory paragraph. The scene detail will be addressed in #2 and #3 below. (5 Points)
Then:
2. Identify and describe TWO specific scenes and extract from these the specific ideas being messaged that you view as challenging. (10 Points)
Tip: Here you are describing the IDEAS that the film is promoting in these scenes. These ideas refer to social-political ideas that have more than one side. The filmmaker is choosing a specific set of moral values. Focus on explaining the specific ideas. Please do not write a plot outline.
Use the heading 2 a) and 2 b)
2 a) Scene 1: Identify and describe one scene and extract from this scene the specific ideas being messaged and that you view as challenging.
2 b) Scene 2: Identify and describe a second scene from the same film. Extract from this scene the specific ideas being messaged that you view as challenging. (You may disagree with the ideas and now agree, or you may have disagreed with the ideas presented and still disagree. Both are fine. You will address your personal position in #3.)
Then:
3. Explain why these two specific scenes challenged your understanding of the subject and the values you previously/currently hold. This can include deepening your understanding, broadening your sympathy or acceptance of others. If you did not change your view, that’s also fine. Explain why. (10 points)
Use the headings below:
3 a) Scene 1
3 b) Scene 2
Example: You might discuss the anti-war film Tangerines and how it challenged your views on war, soldiering, conflict resolution, cultural loyalties, and so on. It is entirely okay if you disagree with a message.
————————————————————————
Option 2
Compare one theme that you saw repeated in two films we studied this semester and write a 4-5 page essay in prose. Compare how two different directors depicted the same theme in terms of story and or visual representation. Make an assessment of the directors’ success in conveying the message you believe was intended.
Your essay needs an introductory paragraph. Identify the theme conveyed by both films and include in your introductory paragraph. This theme will be the same for both films. (5 Points)
Compare how the theme was conveyed using specifics including details at a scene-level. Include two examples for each film. (10 Points – Each example 2 ½ Points) You are not looking for one film expressed by two different films. You are then identifying two scenes per film where the same theme was expressed at the story level for both films. Note cinematic analysis is under next part #3 that follows — Use the headings 2 a) b) 2 c) 2 d) To further clarify:2 a) Film 1 First example of theme expressed in a scene2 b) Film 1 Second example of same theme expressed in a different scene2 c) Film 2 First example of same theme expressed in Film 2, not your first example in Film 22 d) Film 2 Second example of the same theme expressed in Film 2(Each is worth 2.5 points for a total of 10 points.)
Evaluate which director’s cinematic methods were more successful. This could include story selection and/or visual representation. If both directors are equally strong in your view, explain. Provide two examples from each film. Four examples in total. (10 Points – Each example 2 ½ Points)
3 a) Film 1 First example
3 b) Film 1 Second example
3 c) Film 2 First example
3 d) Film 2 Second example
(Each is worth 2.5 points for a total of 10 points)

The purpose of this second essay
is to examine some of those themes while tying in stories, media, film, television, and/or
music. You are free to use the
examples I mention below, or find examples
of your own, both personal and from literature, film, and media. (Mad House is on page 58 on pdf file)
https://s3.us-west-1.wasabisys.com/luminist/EB/M/Matheson%20-%20Third%20from%20the%20Sun.pdfhttps://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7ynfz2 (Mary 25 Episode)
While women have made many strides today in terms of equality with men, parity with
wages and laws, women are still, by and large, in the 20th century and today, still living in a
culture that was created by men, for men (if we are to invoke the US Constitution). Can this or
has this changed since the 20th century? How? Consider Charlie’s conduct with the robot
prototypes in “Mary 25”; Chris’s attitude toward his wife in “Mad House,” The American’s
treatment of Jig in “Hills Like White Elephants,” etc.
