What kinds of sources will you use?

What kinds of sources will you use?

          Primary Sources will be: Original Sources not filtered through a process of analysis or interpretation

         Example: If writing a paper about the film The Shining, by Stanley Kubrick, the film would be your primary source. 

Secondary Sources will be: Sources that are one step removed from the original source, and have been filtered in some way.
Example: When writing about the film The Shining by Stanley Kubrick, a journal article that provides an analysis of a theme within the film would be a secondary source. 
•Peer reviewed essays, scholarly books (about your film, the studio that made your film, your film’s producer or director, or one of its stars)
•Books about the genre of film
•Non-scholarly sources (DVD extras, magazine articles, newspaper articles, reputable websites)
