The Uses of Film Extracts.
Powell, David
The Teachers Guide to Media and Methods, v4 n2 p18-20 Oct 1967
The use of film extracts, either alone or with the whole feature, encourages students to concentrate on a limited number of learning objectives, whereas a full-length film frequently gives rise to confusion and vague generalizations on the part of students. Extracts can be used to illustrate screen language, the style of the director, the history of the cinema, genres of films, or examples of themes. Through the careful and thoughtful selection of extracts, students are not denied the whole experience of the film, but are exposed to its technical and thematic elements with greater intensity. Extracts can also be used in conjunction with script reprints, sound track recordings from the feature, and still photographs. They can be made easily from the feature itself and, with public pressure, may soon be readily available from distributors. (DL)
