Film Segmentation ARTH334 Section 6210
Project Due Date: No later than 11:59 PM EDT, Sunday, June 1.
No late submissions; No excuses.
Concept: You’ll select a film that is structured (choose a film with a linear timeline) according to the Equilibrium Formula and segment it according to its five basic divisions: Equilibrium, Disruption, Quest, Disequilibrium, New Equilibrium (see example below). Also indicate the point of attack.
Length: 1 page only.
Citation: You must cite the film per the MLA guidelines posted under Content. It would be best to do this manually and not employ services to automatically format the citation. You won’t use any other source except for the film. The film’s citation must be manually entered. Any citation copied and pasted that prevents comment isolation will be disallowed and penalized.
Submission: Must be submitted as a Word™ document. Please post in your assignment folder. If LEO is problematic, you may email it provided it is date stamped by the due date. Be aware that date stamps are assigned when processed and not when submitted, so do not wait until the last minute. Submissions date-stamped Monday, June 2 or after will receive a zero for the assignment, so make sure you submit something on time to earn some points. If you email, make sure that you look for a reply email from me acknowledging receipt. The fact that you emailed it does not mean it transmitted successfully.

Equilibrium Formula Sample:
High Noon (1952) segmented:
- Equilibrium – A quiet western town serves as a setting for a wedding ceremony between the marshal and his bride.
- Disruption – Outlaws arrive in town to await their leader on the noon train. The gang seeks revenge for the marshal’s part in sending their leader to prison.
- Quest – The marshal tries to find help among the townspeople.
- Disequilibrium – A gunfight ensues with the outlaws; the marshal is saved by his wife’s intervention.
- New Equilibrium – With the outlaws vanquished, the townspeople must deal with their cowardly choices, while the marshal and his wife move on.
Point of Attack – The marshal turns the carriage around to face the gunmen.
- Proof your work aloud. You will catch grammar issues that a silent read will miss.
- Spell-check will not catch misused words that are spelled correctly (e.g. then v. than).
- Double-check the formatting requirements before submitting your paper for grading.
- Film titles are italicized.
- Film references are written in the present tense.
- Employ active voice rather than passive voice.
- Maintain subject-verb agreement.
- Keep your sentences to the point. Communicate. At these margins settings, if your sentence extends to three lines, think about revising it. If it extends to four lines, revise it.
Ask Questions – If you are unsure of any element, do not assume.
