  1. Hey everyone, I'm a current IB student and my CAS project is creating a guidebook for IB students to help them decide on classes and plan their time in high school. I'm searching for volunteers to fill out this form, which is just general advice for high schoolers going through the IB program, or this form, which I'm using to learn about people's experiences in courses I am unfamiliar with so I can provide information on a wide variety of courses. I would really appreciate your help and thank you to those who choose to make a contribution! Feel free to be as honest as you want. Thank you once
  2. Hi. I am just now entering my second year of IB. I am taking chemistry SL & psychology HL (online) and would like to change from both. Throughout last year I unfortunately didn’t take psychology that serious and am finding difficulty in it (my expected grade is probably going to be very low). And for chemistry, its hard and it’s going to require more effort than necessary. So I wanted to change from chemistry to arts (since my school finally has arts this year) and from psychology online to film online. Since I have a strong background in both, is it possible to do them both in the second
  3. so I've been thinking lots about what to do for my ee, and I was really interested in doing film, but they don't teach it at my school. I was wondering if there are any helpful textbooks for basic film studies or anything for the question i was planning to do, "How does the development of special effects, such as cgi and greenscreen, impact intergenerational appreciation for movies?" Even my question needs a little work, so if there's any other questions that can be made from a topic like this, that would be great.
  4. In my IB highschool, there is no subject such as Film. I know it is recommended not to do your EE on a subject that its not in your school. I have consciously decided to do it this way but I believe that I will get a better score if anyone could help e out. If your school has this subject and your ib teacher is willing to help me just for really little periods of time, just so I properly write the EE it will really help me out. I will be contacting him/her via gmail. If you guys have any advice I could really use it. Thanks, best regards to everybody.
  5. I am currently editing my Film EE, and my advisor (not very experienced in IB) suggested that i define mise-en-scene in my essay. Is this true?? Or is there no definition needed, as it is a film term??
  6. I'm thinking of switching chem to Film SL. I'll be taking the course through Pamoja though since my school doesn't offer it. Can anyone give me a brief overview of what the course would be like? Also where can I find the new syllabus and if you have any insight on Pamoja (are the teachers good and etc) that would be nice.
  7. So I am trying to get my math IA done this summer but am having a hard time choosing a topic that I like. I am really interested in film and cinematography and would like to incorporate it in my math IA but have found nothing on math ia topics that involved film from past math IA topics. I decided that I would come up with my own math IA exploration that has not been done before. My topic/question is "Does movies/films that use the Fibonacci sequence and Golden Ratio make high profits compared to movies that don't?" Is this a good idea for a math IA topic? Could I make it better? Are there any
  8. So my supervisor and I have settled on a topic for my extended essay. I haven't quite formulated a knowledge question yet for this, but I have a rough idea as to where I might want to go. My topic is exploring the societal trend of diverse casting in the entertainment world (Novels, theater, film, etc.). I would be using written books, some scripts, articles, etc. as my evidences and sources for expanding into my topic. But my supervisor and I also want to include visual references, like recordings of plays and musicals or looking at films. My school's IB Coordinator was iffy on this when I as
  9. Hello. Does anyone have examples of Production Portfolio for Film class, a (sl) cinematographer portfolio? Thank you
  10. I want to drop SL chemistry for film but that will take a lot of convincing to my teacher since IB has been going for 2 months already and it is too late for me to change. My school doesnt offer the subject but theres an online course: pamoja film and i didnt know about this until yesterday and im really really interested in film. does anyone have any experience with pamoja though? im just afraid of regretting the decision (if im allowed to change) because its an online course and stuff... hows the work load?
  11. Hey! I'm interested in film but my school only offers it in SL online. How does this online thing differ from regular SL studies? Is it even close?
  12. My school does not offer film (I don't take the course), but I am not interested in any other subject other than film. I asked my Extended Essay teacher if I could do my EE on a subject I am not taking, but she said most likely not because: 1) I won't have prior knowledge on it (which is true, but during my free time I plan on studying as much as I can about this) and 2) there might not be a supervisor fit for me. However, there is an English teacher who has a degree in film. So what I am wondering is is it possible for him to be my supervisor? Even though he teaches English and not film?
  13. I am planning to write my Extended Essay on stranger things. I was planning to analyse the formalist elements like symbolism in lighting, however, most extended essay examples for film relate to comparison or auteurist elements. I am not too sure if analysing the lighting and other elements is a good topic anymore?
  14. I have idea for my EE in film and i need the advice is it a good idea, plus help me specify the topic and research question if so. I thought to write how the movies depannd and how the story is lead when there is no major change in the location, or simple when there is only one location where the action take place. I thought to write this essay based on three movies of Sidney Lumet: "12 Angry Man" (1957), "Murder on the Orient Express" (1974), and Dog Day Afternoon" (1975). Tell me what do you think about that.
  15. I am in summer holidays approaching Year 13 now and I really want to grab the time to prepare for next year. I am at a 37 now and I really want to get a 40 or above. Does any one have tips on how to get a 7 in the following subjects that I take? Especially Film and Global Politics! I literally have no idea how in the world I am supposed to revise or get good grades in those!! - Chinese Language and Literature HL - English Literature SL - Maths SL - Design Technology SL - Global Politics HL - Film Studies HL Thanks a million!
  16. I am planning to write my ee on film, and my current topic was 'How are filmic/cinematic techniques utilized by Tykwer and his team, in order to portray a sense of smell in his film, 'Perfume: The Story of a Murderer' and how can their efficacy be measured?'. So I was going to analyze just 1 film 'perfume: the story of a murderer', but my supervisor says I need to select at least 2 films to compare. I looked at the Extended essay guidance for film, but it just mentions that 'For primary sources, there must be detailed references to at least one film (or major television work). Prim
  17. So far I've come up with three different approaches to what I want to work on for my EE; which is western animation. The movies that I have seen potential in for analysis are the ones mentioned in the questions. I need some feedback on which of these is more acceptable for an English Extended Essay (if any) and some suggestions on the wording/scope of them. The first was suggested to me by my adviser. Topic Question South American Settings How are South American settings explored
  18. I'm making a film about the theme of identity in the novel The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. My video is centered around the concept that the materials we possess and use everyday make up a large part of human identity. It will feature an individual going through their daily life, and with each material they use, a new color or symbol is painted on their face to represent how it becomes part of their identity. It's not until all of the materials are taken away that the individual will have no paint left on their face. Because this film is primarily silent, I was planning on writi
  19. So hey guys, I have been struggling with my Extended Essay on Film. I have researched a lot on the director and on the movies I am going to talk about. My previous RQ was: How did the Director develop his use of filmic techniques to portray the detrimental effects of war on the individual and society as a whole within each film? The thing was I realized I had not have an exact thesis to guide my work like I was basically wandering and throwing a few cool terms to the work. Also, the war impact on people and society is kinda puny. So, as my supervisor advised me, my work, m
  20. Hi, I was wondering if this would be a good research focus for my EE. I plan on doing an EE on English B, category 2B which if i'm right its about cultural artifacts. I read the guides and understood that the goal of that type of EE is to value the cultural impact of a certain artifact, however when I came up to my teacher with my Intro for the impact of some Disney movies from the 21st century she said it'd be better to do it the other way around. As if I should focus on how society has impacted in the shaping of these films instead of the impact of films themselves, which is how I understood
  21. i take: HL global politics HL film HL chinese language & literature SL english literature SL maths SL design technology i have both HL & SL papers for some of them. i am contemplating whether to keep SL papers when I do HL; & if I should keep my HL papers when I do SL... i know for some subjects the assessments are very similar or even same in HL & SL. sooo plz provide me your valuable opinions! thx
  22. I've searched it, but nothing comes up. Is there an IB exam for Film?
  23. Hey guys, whats up? I am doing my Extended Essay on Film. I have redacted 6 pages, more less, though I kinda needed help with the visual aspects of the films, since I did not take Film as a subject. I am doing a good job I think, I grasped the "philosophy" of the guide, but tbh the help of a connoisseur of the criteria of the subject for an EE and with technical knowledge on the subject would give me confidence: even though I think I am doing well and read a lot on the theme, I have no aid at school (it doesn't have a film teacher) and the mood there is that I am suicidal by having chosen
  24. Fellows, I am doing my Extended Essay on Film and decided to go for a comparison between Coppola's Apocalypse Now (1979) and Gardens of Stone (1987). I am really striving for the A. I just have one doubt. My RQ is still getting adjusted: how (successfully?) did the Director developed filmic techniques to portray the detrimental effects of war (on the individual and society as a whole)? By the way do you think I should just say "detrimental effects of war" or the whole individual and society as a whole thing? But thats not the point. I got in a dilemma on the "thesis" that wou
  25. Hi there, I know this is stupid. I am aware of that. I am going for my 2nd year (senior year, whatever) and I am doing my EE in Film. I did not take it as a subject as my school does not offer it. However, I am really enjoying it, in spite of some hurdles on the topic choice. I feel like I have a knack for it, I mean I am a creative person and I guess that the fact that I have the ability to look at film knowledge in a more imaginative way. I know it is because I am confident, and writing about Film, like in the EE, is easier than actually creative and giving birth to an artistic oeuvre l
