The use of film clips as stimuli for the elicitation of emotion offers many advantages over other methods, including ease of standardization and a high degree of ecological validity. Despite these benefits, relatively little research has been conducted towards the validation of such film sets, and the most recently created film set available for use with American audiences appears largely ineffective in a contemporary American college student population. The current study has collected and validated a new set of short film clips for use in research requiring emotion elicitation. Variables considered in validation were intensity, discreteness, valence, and arousal. Additionally, this study is the first to examine a range of film variables that may also impact results. Results suggest that along with participant variables, these variables significantly and systematically impact participants ratings of various emotions, and therefore should be considered in emotion elicitation research.
