Prof. Herzog’s Blog Challenge

September 17th, 2011 by Kevin L. Ferguson · No Comments · Prof Ferguson, Prof Herzog

Professor Herzog told me about the “blog challenge” she gave you all on Citizen Kane. I looked at the assignment, and thought “we just talked about this very thing!” I hope you all take her up on it. She really wants you to pay attention to HOW the filmmakers make their point–not just WHAT the story of the film is. Like when we watched the clip from 2001: A Space Odyssey, we weren’t concerned with story so much as we were paying attention to the different kinds of conflicts that we saw on the screen. Only after observation could we start to draw conclusions about what the images meant. Also, that’s just what Eisenstein (and Bazin) discussed, no?

Again, here is the link to her assignment: http://medst144f11.qwriting.qc.cuny.edu/2011/09/16/blog-challenge-1-observing-citizen-kane/
