Question:

I need help with APA style citations. What do I do if I want to use a quotation from a source that the author took from a different source?

Kennedy P.
Answer:

This is an indirect quotation, a quote from one source discussed in a secondary source. In the references, you need only cite the source where you found the quote; however, in the text itself, it would be best to address the author of the primary source as cited in the secondary source. Example: A student wants to use a quote written by John Doe, which was found in an article written by Bob Smith. The reference list would be of Bob Smith's article, and the in-text citation could be written as follows: John Doe (as cited in Smith, 2016) writes, "insert quote here."

Question:

Can you explain what French New Wave is and why it is important in the context of film history?

Kennedy P.
Answer:

French New Wave was an influential cinematic style used to characterize a specific group of films and filmmakers in France during the 1950s and 1960s, the most notable of which including Jean-Luc Godard, Jacques Rivette, and Francois Truffaut. It influenced modern cinema through its innovation in story-telling, from low-budget documentary style approach to cinematography; to its use of long takes and disjointed editing; to its radical implementation of fourth wall breaks and existential character development. French New Wave's innovation created a new standard of filmmaking that influences modern films to this day.

Question:

How does one go about creating a persuasive argument in a paper?

Kennedy P.
Answer:

Given that we have a decided topic and position with which to pose an argument, it's first crucial to understand the audience of your argument. Arguments are formed when two parties disagree on a particular subject of interest; thus, successful persuasion comes from a writer who provides thorough argument for his/her position(s), while anticipating rebuttals from the opposing argument, and countering them. All of this must be done concisely and clearly.
