In Text Citations:
When you use a direct quote or paraphrase an idea from another author, you must cite where this information came from in the body of your paper. Check out these basic guidelines for formatting in-text citations.
Films and electronic resources like web articles or streaming videos are cited slightly differently than books or journal articles in the body of your paper. See examples here.
EXAMPLE: Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo stars Herzog's long-time film partner, Klaus Kinski. During the shooting of Fitzcarraldo, Herzog and Kinski were often at odds, but their explosive relationship fostered a memorable and influential film.
If you are quoting a specific scene in a film make sure to include a time or time range, separating hours, minutes and seconds, with colons, to indicate where the quote came from within the film, like a page number.
EXAMPLE: (Casablanca 00:34:30-00:36:03)
At the end of your paper, you should include a references page of all works cited. Check out these examples for citing specific types of resources.
Citing a film or dvd:
Title. Original release date. Names of director(s). Names of performers if relevant, Publisher/Production company, publication date.
OR you can emphasize the director and create the citation this way:
Citing a film from a streaming platform like Kanopy or Swank Digital Campus:
