I think I (and we as a group) did a much better job the second week of presentations. We knew better what was expected of us and therefore were better prepared. I really liked the way in which we worked as a team and divided up the work.
I was responsible for a brief introduction and the very important task of translating the Dutch texts. Ali and Robyn elaborated on my introduction with a broad theoretical framework, links to films that were made at Cinetone and an overall academical context. I think (and hope) I also helped with that and together I think we were able to lift our presentation to an academic, master’s degree worthy, level.
The only that could have been better, is the length of our presentation. It was quite long. Of course this also had to do with everybody ordering a drink and enjoying the fact that they could sit for a moment, but everything could have a been a little bit shorter. But, there was just so much to say about this particular location 🙂
