- Describe the common conventions (story, theme, mise-en-scène) of the genre you have selected.
- Identify a feature-length film that fits your selected genre and state the year it was produced, its director, cinematographer (or director of photography), and top-billed cast. (Place film titles in italics.)

In the body of your paper (at least three paragraphs),
- Summarize the movie. As you develop this summary, remember the differences between a film’s story and its plot and be sure to highlight specific genre elements.
- Interpret at least two genre conventions exhibited in your chosen feature-length film that help classify it in the selected genre. Be sure to provide a specific example of each convention (e.g., the elements used in a scene, type of story, plot component, or theme).
- Evaluate a third convention (e.g., the elements used in a scene, type of story, plot component, or theme not yet addressed) from your chosen feature-length film and how this convention expands the boundaries of the specified genre.
In the conclusion of your paper,
- Connect each element of your chosen film and how it contributes to the film’s overall genre classification, whether it displays the conventions of multiple genres or subgenres, and how these elements are effectively used to convey a particular theme.
