Film History: Research Project I- The Directors

In Film History class we we be working on creating a 5 page presentation on PowerPoint with a title page, a video clip with a scene, a bulleted biography, and explanation of the director’s style. Below is the list of directors we'll be looking at and we'll watch the finished presentations and then conclude with a short quiz that includes each of them. I created the list based on the their number of Academy Awards nominations (they've all been nominated for at least 3). Above is a clip about director John Ford who has won the most Academy Awards for Best Director, 4 in total: 1935- The Informer, 1940- The Grapes of Wrath, 1941- How Green Was My Valley, 1952- The Quiet Man.
