Intellectual Montage & the Kuleshov Effect

Students learned that images arranged consecutively can create story or meaning. This project illustrates the idea that meaning can change depending on the sequence of images. Students created two sequences. The 1st and 3rd shots are the same in both sequences. The 2nd shot changes how the viewer interprets each sequence.
