Student Names: Chuck Gonzales, Treasa Benny
Project Title:
Shawshank



Project Description:
Treasa and I (Chuck) paired up for our second project for Studio: Structure & Morphology. We were to deconstruct and analyze a film or TV show and, from that, create a narrative of our own. Delivery and execution were open-ended, so we were determined to fully trust the process and see where our research would lead us. We decided on The Shawshank Redemption by Frank Darabont. 

After rewatching The Shawshank Redemption with a critical eye, we created mood boards and devised a mindmap. In doing so, we explored the film’s themes and characters and attempted to decode suggestive scenes and elements.

On its surface, the film seems to have a straightforward plotline that revolves around the prevailing aspects of hope, faith, and friendship. One could easily perceive it as a film reflective of conventional tropes where the main character (Andy Dufresne) starts with a predicament, discovers hope, and finds a solution.
