In the course of putting our DA together, there have been some obstacles that we’ve had to overcome, both individually and as a team. The most salient, in my opinion, has been communication. Seeing as this is a purely online class, we’ve had to find a platform that we both can reliably use to communicate with each other. It was an important hurdle to overcome and we’ve settled on a divide-and-conquer approach, alongside check-ins, to make things move quicker.
The other main issue is that our DA is not, as Ted Mitew would say, FIST (Fast, Inexpensive, Simple, Tiny). Critical analysis is a time-consuming and broad project to take on. We’re combatting this by choosing one simple topic for each film and working with films we’re familiar with, which will cut down the amount of time we need to spend re-watching and analysing the films.
