Comm 174 Film Scene Transcription And Analysis

I’m working on a communications writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.

From the following movies:

Robot and Frank (2012) by Jake Schreier

Ex Machina (2014) by Alex Garland

The Adventures of Elektronic, Episode 1 (1979) by Konstantin Bromberg


*Identify what you find to be the most interesting scene featuring communication with a robot.

*Transcribe the interaction. Transcription style is free (as if you were writing a film scenario or reporting on an interaction in a novel). Transcribe approx. 1 page, single-spaced, but prioritize following the contours of the scene rather than the page length.

*Introduce the scene by situating it in the film narrative and explain why you found the scene interesting.

*Describe, in layman’s terms, the camerawork and how the characters are located in respect to each other, other material elements of the scene and the spatial setup.

*Analyze the scene by using two concepts/ideas covered in the class.

Do not exceed 3 pages (space 1.5) in length (in addition to the transcript).
