Study Guide and Notes. OG – Part 1, Chapter 2 – “The film text and film form” by Robert P. Kolker, pp. 11-22 1. The Oxford Guide to Film Studies is a British text. Therefore, the authors follow British writing conventions. For instance, instead of double quotation marks (“like these ones”), they use single quotation marks (‘like these’). In addition, they leave periods outside single quotation marks. 2. The author uses the word institution as the many elements, practices, and components that take part in a particular activity, community or organization. Filmmaking is an institution as the family is an institution for society. 3. Can you explain what is a text ? 4. According to this author, can the viewing of a film also constitute a text? 5. How do the format of the film text and the setting of the viewing act affect the text? 6. What elements or components can take part of the film text? See the end of the first paragraphs on pages 12 and 15. 7. How are viewers a part of the construction of meaning when they watch a film? Are they part of the text? In what sense? 8.
