The short paper must include a cover page with your name, course number and course title, instructor’s name, and date. These do not count as part of the original three pages. You must also include a bibliography at the end of your paper. While composing your paper, use proper English.

Welcome to Hollywood. You are a fledging movie writer and you are about to “pitch” your idea for a historical film. Tell the movie executive (me) about your idea. You must pick a subject that we have covered in this class and describe the best way to adapt it into a screenplay. Why is this movie important? When is the movie taking place? Who would play each part and why?
You must use at least two citations from academic journals, articles, newspapers and/or books .
Here is what I will be looking for and grading on…
Most importantly did you choose a suitable subject? Is this something we covered in class or is in the text book…if not, it is an AUTOMATIC D. (Basically this has to be from our era NOT the first half of this sequence HIST221.)
Did you use your sources, our class material and the readings to understand the subject matter and propose your film? This separates you from any other schmo off the street, it gives you credibility and I will be looking for specific understanding of the historical content. This is how you set the film up and propose suitable ideas for the film’s layout and actors, etc.
BE CREATIVE! Who are you? Set the scene and have some fun. Where will you shoot your movie, and why? Who will play the major roles in this film? What actors and actresses will you pursue to make this movie successful, and why did you choose these individuals.
