Question description

Lecture

Please refer to Chapter 2 in your text.  A film is actually a series of "frames."  The analysis of Mise en Scene means "freezing the frame."  In these frames, the viewer's eye looks at the following elements:

·  Where is our eye attracted first? Why?

·  High lighting? Low lighting? High Contrast? Some combination of these?

·  How Far away is the camera from the action?

·  Are we (and the camera) looking up or down on the subject? Or is the camera neutral (eye level)?

·  What is the dominant color?

·  Is the frame distorted in any way?

·  What are the main eye-stops after taking in the dominant?

·  How much visual information is packed into the image?

·  How the two dimensional is space segmented and organized?

·  Does the image suggest a fragment--or one section-- of the scene?

·  Do the characters have no room to move around, or can they move freely without impediments?    

Assignment

  1. There are many scenes provided in Chapter 2 of your text.  Select one scene and analyze the mise-en-scene of the frame.  Analyze the scene in four areas defined in this week's lecture.

    • Five basic positions in which an actor can be photographed
