    I've put this in here and not media because it's about my year abroad essay. It's one 2500 word essay about 2 films, which I need to click 'send' on by tonight if I don't want to take my laptop away with me.

    Anyway, the whole essay is, of course, my own opinion from watching the films, and interpreting them. And as such I only have 3 references- 3 different articles.

    The year abroad guide specifies that we should write a well-referenced essay, but I shouldn't have to trawl the depths of the internet just to look for someone who happens to think the same as I do, should I?

    Help!

    No you shouldn't but perhaps looking at works around the films Genre, there are many academic books covering genre studies, so perhaps a few quotes form those would support your opinions. We see in this scene <the action> as a genre convention described by <author> "quote.................."

    just an idea?

    The films are Die Wolke and Die Welle. Nothing in common despite name similarities!

    I think, as long as they wouldn't fail me for it, I'm ok with leaving it as it is. Just don't want to fail cause then I'd have to go home!
