Final Video Essay: ” Guess the Film From The Props!”

What can define a movie? Its story, its cinematography, its actors etc… What about props?

In my video essay I created a riddle game to demonstrate the importance that props can have in films. By using the Best Picture Oscar Winners films from The Schindler’s List to Twelve Years a Slave, I wanted to play on the common perception and understanding of the audience about films that have been awarded by the cinema industry. So this films are supposed to be a part of the common knowledge of people in terms of film culture. This video essay try to illustrate, by the game, how specific props can remind a film to a spectator. In other words, I try to show how props can be a part of the identity of a film and reflect the nature of it.

Now let’s play!
