  1. So hey guys, I have been struggling with my Extended Essay on Film. I have researched a lot on the director and on the movies I am going to talk about. My previous RQ was: How did the Director develop his use of filmic techniques to portray the detrimental effects of war on the individual and society as a whole within each film? The thing was I realized I had not have an exact thesis to guide my work like I was basically wandering and throwing a few cool terms to the work. Also, the war impact on people and society is kinda puny. So, as my supervisor advised me, my work, more than focusing on the cinematography, it had to explore one thing that I knew of and felt comfortable, the director. So I thought of something more focused on the director Francis Ford Coppola who is a hell of a case study am I right and decided to link his eccentric "way of building scenarios" with his films. So something like: to what extent did the director's style influence each film... Do you think this would work? I wanted to focus on the director and link his extravagant and boldness with some visual aspects (of course I ll have to talk about the cinematography and not only author bs). Do you have any other suggestions of topic/RQ wording? If you like this could you like give me some ideas on what to develop on the work, I have thought of a few things I am going to explore, but if you have any experience on the most "efficient" way to prove the director did have an influence on some prominent aspects of the films, please tell me. Thanks, Richard
  2. I've recently found out that there is a new curriculum for IB Visual Arts, with first examinations taking place in 2016, so this only effects people starting the course this year. The new syllabus can be found here and blog posts explaining the new curriculum can be found here and here. Even though I only started the course in August I was really familiar with old syllabus: the A/B options and the IWB/studio work as the assessed components. So I'm a little caught off guard with this change! What are your thoughts? Do you think this change is for the better or the worse? Any advice on how I should change my approach to the course in order to receive a good score?

    This file is the syllabus for the new Visual Arts course, first examinations in 2016. I hope you find it useful!
  4. I'm a few weeks into my first year of the DP and everything is going well. The one thing I'm a little concerned about is the way my IB Visual Arts class is being taught. First of all, there are technically only three people in my entire school taking the class. So, the three of us (another junior and a senior) are lumped in with another art class which isn't AP or even honors, it's just a basic class for people who need the credit and we're doing the exact same work as them. We do keep an Investigation Workbook but I feel like the pages she's assigned to us aren't really what were supposed to be doing. She has given us a syllabus, but there really isn't very much information in it other than the distinction between SL and HL (I'm doing SL). She's also said that we are supposed to turn in work at the end of this year (IB1) but I've never heard of that before. I thought everything was supposed to be submitted at the end of IB2. She also hasn't said anything about choosing between Option A and Option B. Should I say something to her? Should I bring this up with the IB Coordinator at my school? I know she does some one one one work with the senior in IB2, but I really don't want to waste an entire year doing nothing and have to cram everything in next year. What should I do?
  5. Hey everyone, I am having trouble choosing a sixth subject for my IB course. I plan to study in the United States and my main points of interests are business/economics and computer science. Here are the first five courses: Math Economics Computer Science Mandarin Chinese English Literature I need help choosing a sixth subject and I am wondering which one will complement my other courses or perhaps universities will recognize more. Here are my picks for Group 6 subjects: Physics/Chemistry (Heard that specialty in one of the three big sciences would be good for college) Design Technology (Could complement my comp sci course but heard it is a 'soft' subject) Business and Management (Could complement my economics course but also heard it is a 'soft' subject) Music (Started playing the sax a few months ago and maybe it could be good subject to take) Any advice would be gladly appreciated!
  6. Hi guys! I'm just wondering... is Art and Design hard? I have posted a thread on The Student Room forum about my subject choices, and someone recommended me there that I shouldn't take Art and Design (the only group 6 subject that my school offers) if it's not necessary for my future degree in university. That person told me it is hard and very time consuming while I can just do art for CAS. I plan to take Art and Design SL. I'm not the biggest fan of making art but when I'm inspired, I can do it well. But you know what I mean... I'm not always inspired. Someone please help? Thank you
  7. Yo fellow IB-ers! For those who've done Visual Arts and have done/are doing an Extended Essay on it, I need to clarify a doubt: Does animation qualify under Visual Arts? In my Extended Essay, I was going to talk about Avatar: The Last Airbender and the cultural influences behind the imagery, choreography of bending and the art which all contribute to the story. After investigating, I will examine the impact it has had and why it is widely acclaimed (if it's possible, I don't know how to fix that part or how to tighten the "so what?" aspect of this) How does my topic sound? Is it okay to continue? I do not want to go with something and then find out it's a horrifying topic which I'll score low marks on. Please and Thank you!
  8. I'm about to start my EE, and I've already finalized a totally awesome topic: To what extent did the Golden and Silver Ages of Comics influence Bruce Timm's work?Bruce Timm is best known for his animation and producer work in the DC Animated Universe, including his character designs for Justice League, Batman Beyond, and the animated series for Batman and Superman. But he's done his fair share of comic book penciling, too, both in and out of DC Comics. For examples of his work, I want to include images and character designs from some of the cartoons he worked on, both those listed above and likely others. But my concern is this: Does animation even count as a visual art? The EE guide says that visual arts are "broadly defined also to include architecture, design and contemporary forms of visual culture". Would American animation fit anywhere under that definition?
  9. Good news--I've finalized an EE topic and even chosen a supervisor! Bad news--I'm scared. o_o Why, you ask? Well, as much as I love contemporary comic book art--and just drawing in general--I'm not exactly an expert on the terms, lingo, art-elese, and concepts they use out there. Is doing research on that stuff actually part of the fun of doing the EE--or am I in deep trouble?
  10. How much value is placed on the originality of the topic/research question of an EE? Would such fall under "Criterion K: holistic judgment"? Can a successful EE topic be made about comic book art? Say I'm doing an EE on literature--is it recommended that you have already read the literature itself, or can good research still be conducted from reading after deciding a topic?
  11. Hi guys so this is my first post I don't exactly know how to use this thing but I hope I'll get the answer I'm looking for. So first off, I'd like to know what the easiest group 6 subject would be. Last year I took art for my IGCSE's and I was really struggling with the amount of projects that I had and I was finding it difficult to spend so much time on art and in the end I just gave up and went with the flow, not giving a flying **** about my grade (I don't think I even got a mark). Well this year I'm in the same position as two years ago and I don't want to make the same huge mistake of taking a subject that I don't need and wasting more time on it than is actually beneficial for me. I'm planning on becoming an astrophysicist or doing something related to mechatronics or anything that involves maths and physics really, so for me the group 6 subjects are really useless and I don't want to do biology or psychology (although I'm attending psychology classes for now) because I really suck at memorizing terminology and huge ass chunks of text. Initially I had decided to do Film but apparently there was no more space so I had to do something else and my only options are; Visual Arts, Theatre (they're going to open up a classroom because we requested it), ChemHL/BioHL, Psychology, Business and finally Economics (I take this as a group 3 subject in HL though so boo). So my question is, out of all of these, which one would be the easiest to achieve a 7 in at SL. The universities I want dgaf about my other subjects, only maths, physics and my overall IB points, so I just want an easy 7 with minimum work. I know this sounds lazy but I'm taking 4 HLs two of which are physics and maths so I just want to take it easy for at least group 6. Thanks !
