Phase 1: Amnesia Supercut

Today I’ve established two important parts of my project. Through peer reviews, I solidified my topic: Use of amnesia in films. This allowed me to create a 4 part general outline of how my essay will be broken down. And secondly, I compiled a more specified list of films.

My project will be split into four separate chapters/groups:

PART 1 — MEMORY LOSS PROCEDURE

PART 2 — REALIZING MEMORY HAS BEEN LOST

PART 3 — STRUGGLING WITH TRYING TO REGAIN MEMORY

PART 4 — REGAINING MEMORY/BEING CONTENT WITH MEMORY LOSS

The movies I will definitely be using are The Vow, Memento, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. The other movies that I still need to watch are:

  • Shutter Island
  • Vertigo
  • Saving Private Ryan
  • The Butterfly Effect
  • 50 First Dates
  • Bourne Identity
  • The Hangover

I want to incorporate a combination of drama, humor, and action films to show how this one commonality is seen across all different types of films. By next class, I will have watched the rest of the movies, and begin ripping the files so that I can edit them in iMovie.
