What is a movie?

An art form that employs

a narrative- well, almost always Slide4

Editing makes it a unique art form:can control how

the viewer sees

a storySlide5

Audiences absorb movie meaning intuitively and instantly

intuitive

example: a low- angle shot…Slide6

A good film gets rid of distractions

producing a highly manipulated & artificial

reality ex: cutting in on

action Slide7

Movies contain implicit and explicit meaningsSlide8

Explicit:

what the

film is about Implicit:

what is the movie trying to say? what does it mean? an overall message or point?Slide9

Viewer Expectations…

The basic movie structure:

a clearly motivated protagonistpursues a

goalobstacles a clear resolutionyour experience of a movie is affected by how a particular film tells this storySlide10

Formal film analysis: analytical approach mostly concerned with film form…

or

the means in which the narrative is expressedDissecting/understanding cinematography, sound, composition, design,

mise-en-scene, performance and editing = reading a filmSlide11

It’s possible to read too much meaning…

but know that filmmakers exploit

every tool at their disposal … therefore,

everything is there for a reasonSlide12

Principles of Film FormSlide14

Film Form & Content

Remember, very little,

if anything is left to chancea

movie isexceptionallyorganized &deliberately assembledSlide15

Film content: - the

subject of a

movie - what it’s aboutSlide16

Film Form: the

means by which the subject

of the movie is expressed and experienceddoesn’t

just let us see the subject, lets us see it in a particular waythe tools and techniques that a filmmaker uses to convey meaning and moodSlide17

Works of art need both: content and formSlide19
Film Form and

ExpectationsSlide20

Audiences will form impressions quickly, sometimes opening creditsin

Hollywood, producers and screen writers assume the audience will decide if they like/dislike a movie in the first

10 minutesSlide21

Audiences expect that most movies start with a “normal” world

- that

is altered by a particular

incident (the inciting incident) - compelling/forcing the protagonist to pursue a goalSlide22

The film’s narrative structure is written around the viewer’s desire to learn the answers.

will

Dorothy get back to Kansas?will

Frodo destroy the ring?examplesSlide23

This desire stresses the

importance of the opening

scene.(

American Beauty ; Requiem; Babel; Shining)Slide24
Fundamentals of Film

FormSlide25

Movies depend on light.Light can be

manipulated to create mood, reveal character, and convey meaning

(Schindler’s List

Blade Runner Mad Max)Movies provide an illusion of movement.Slide26

Movies manipulate space and time in unique ways.can move seamlessly from one space to another or make space move or fragment time in many ways (

The Matrix

)the camera is always selecting and manipulating what is seen on the screenSlide27

continuous record of action occurring in different locations - an illusion no other art form can convey as effectively (Godfather

)

can rearrange time: Citizen Kane, Atonement, Memento, Pulp FictionSlide28
Realism and

Antirealismnot

every film strives to be “realistic

”…but nearly all films attempt to immerse us in a world that is

depicted convincinglySlide29

Verisimilitude:a convincing appearance of truth.

movies achieve verisimilitude

when they convince you that the things on the screen (people, places

…), no matter how fantastic or anti-realistic they are, are realSlide30

Cinematic/film language:- accepted systems, methods, or

conventions that movies

communicate with the viewerReferring to the ‘text of a movie’or ‘reading a particular shot/scene’ means to apply the understanding of cinematic language
