Frankenstein Novel Projects
Group Options
Closing Arguments: Create a film in which someone (or something) is on trial for events in the novel. You must have at least two attorneys—one for the prosecution and one for the defense—but you may include more actors. Testimony is acceptable, but you must include the closing arguments in the film. Include specifics from the novel. You may watch closing arguments (To Kill a Mockingbird, A Time to Kill, etc.) for ideas of how to use rhetorical strategies such as repetition, storytelling, gestures, audience awareness, etc. Max time: 7 min.

How it Should Have Ended: Rewrite the ending to the novel. Film the closing scene. You might want to view other “HISHE” videos on Youtube. Max time: 5 min.

Sequel or Prequel: Create a movie trailer for a sequel or prequel to the book. What do you think might happen next (or did happen before) to any or all of the characters next? Write the script and create a video no longer than 3 minutes. Be sure to watch movie trailers for inspiration—your job is to persuade people to watch the movie.

Individual Options:
Book Cover: Consider the original novel, and place it in a contemporary setting with a contemporary issue. What would the subject be? What would the title be? Create a book cover for your book. Cover must include purposefully-chosen imagery, an important quote from the book, quotes from critics, and a blub about the author. Write a brief rationale explaining your choices.

Movie Poster: Consider the original novel, and consider the story from another’s perspective. What would you name that movie? Create a movie poster that incorporates purposefully-chosen imagery, important quote(s) from the novel, actors/actresses to portray characters, quotes from critics, and a rating. Write a brief rationale explaining your choices.

Pair Option:
Digital Story/Sound Track: Create a digital story/soundtrack to the novel including at least 10 images and snippets of 6 songs. The story must have a clear progression (beginning, middle, end). Write a brief rationale explaining your choices.
