Scooby Doo, where are you? Alexander Street of course!Posted: May 3, 2016
Alexander Street Press has videos…. lots and lots of videos!
You can find documentaries, television series (like the American 60 Minutes, and Meet the Press), instructional materials, interviews, biographies and more!
There is plenty of content to put in Learning@Griffith for your students to watch (and learn!). We highly recommend taking a look at Academic Video Online: Premium. You can even highlight the most important piece of your content by making a clip.
But it also has a little something for film buffs, film students, film scholars, and anyone looking for a cinematic experience in their reading material.
Alexander Street Press contains the Film Scripts Online collection. Film Scripts Online contains over 1,100 scripts and makes available accurate and authorised versions of copyrighted screenplays. You can compare the writer’s vision with the producer’s and director’s interpretations from page to screen.
The script archives go a fair way back. Can we interest you in something from the 1930’s? There is a musical by Lloyd Bacon starring twinkle-toed Ginger Rogers. Or maybe you are keen for something more adventurous? The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1938) may be right up your alley (or river…)
That’s not to say contemporary content is amiss. There is a selection of scripts from the last decade or two. Have a read of The Departed (2006), Scooby Doo (2002) or Oceans Eleven (2001).
