UCLA Film & TV 106A - History of the American Motion Picture - Fall 2011 Research Paper Assignment Due: October 19, 2011 Length: 6-8 pages (1800-2400 words) Format: double-spaced, 12-point font, standard margins, numbered pages Submit a hard copy of the paper to your TA & upload an electronic copy to MyUCLA/Film 106a/turnitin.com. Assignment: Your task in paper one is to focus on a decisive event, piece of technology, concept, individual, or group of individuals that played a role in the development of American cinema; outline the specific origins and effects of this selected topic; and clearly explain its historical significance. Please select a topic in American film history prior to 1940. STEPS TO SUCCESS - When choosing your topic please keep the length of the assignment in mind. Avoid topics that are too broad to be covered at this length, such as "Hollywood’s transition to sound." Narrow the area of study; “The impact of the transition to sound on independent producers” is more manageable at 6-8 pages. - This is not a film analysis paper, so don’t pick a topic that requires film viewing or film interpretation – avoid “The image of women in Hollywood film.” Instead, focus in on a particular aspect of a historical topic that interests you. Narrowing the focus will also help you to approach the topic from a specific, unique angle and consequently, make your essay more original.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
