DEFINITION: What is a Monograph? A monograph is a work of writing upon a single subject. It is often a scholarly essay or learned treatise, and may be released in the manner of a book. It is by definition a single document that forms a complete text in itself. Normally the term is used for a work intended to be a complete and detailed exposition of a substantial subject.

b) how the ﬁlm utilizes the fundamentals of ﬁlmic structure, cinematography, production design, sound, and performance to a particular aesthetic and thematic end.

The monographs should be polished and professional looking, completely devoid of misspellings and grammatical errors.
