Gone with the Wind is a paradigm which is the example of classic Hollywood film score, because the music itself has characteristics being played out of the film score throughout the storyline. The classic Hollywood film score is known to create emotions and moods that mirrors the actions and drama throughout the film. The classic Hollywood film score helps bring the movie more to life, it makes it more vivid and as an audience you can see the action and drama but also feel the music blend in perfectly with the mood of the film. Also in Birth of a Nation you see how they apply well know melodies such as "Dixie" and "Tara" and how they become unique themes in the
Editing: visual transitions between shots that work to move the story forward. Watch the following clips. Each demonstrates the effective use of editing. The baptism murders – The Godfather (8/9) movie clip (1972) HD A Beautiful Mind (4/11) movie clip – Nash cracks the code (2011) HD § The shower – Psycho (5/12) movie clip (1960) HD Choose one of the clips and analyze the effective use of editing in one short paragraph. In your analysis, describe the transitions between specific shots and the overall effect this has on the scene.
I have analysed many factors that affect this contrast of convection and unconventional suitability to the genre by looking into the mise-en-scéne, generic convections (such as plot, themes, setting, characters and special effects) and camerawork (such as oblique, long shots, point of view shots, medium shots, close-ups, panning, etc). One of the first things the viewer is experienced with is the choice of colour to emphasize and portray the feeling of the setting and general theme of the film. By this, I mean not only the alteration of colour balance between frames and within the mise-en-scéne generally, but in fact in a much more deep and effective way. An example of this is when in The Matrix, the official intro title animation for Warner Brothers’ Pictures is colourised in the style of a science fictional theme. This is achieved by making the main foregrounded and animated emblem for the corporation green.
*These differences should be important. Paragraph 2 Sentence 1: Begin with a transition (The first major difference between the text and the movie is the relationship between Beowulf and Grendel’s mother. In the story, …”) Sentence 2: You would then discuss what happened in the story, use a transition word or phrase (“In contrast” etc), and talk about what happened in the movie. Sentence 3-5 (or 6): After you’ve listed the difference, you will then discuss why you think the movie made the change, and if you think it was more or less effective than the story and why. Paragraphs 3 and 4 Do the same thing you did in paragraph 2, except with different points.
The use of motifs and mataphor in Percy Adlon’s Bagdad Café Motifs and metaphor are two elements normally used in films. A motif is a recurring object, subject or theme that raises certain importance in the film. A metaphor, on its side, is a symbolic comparison of two concepts used to establish an idea. Percy Adlon’s Bagdad Café uses both motifs and metaphors in the film: a yellow thermos, a boomerang, a magic set and even paintings. These motifs and metaphors all work together as an essential element in the development of the narrative of Bagdad Café.
This is when people brainstorm on film ideas of their own and basically does everything from writing the script and picking their own actors to supervising the writing to make sure it is to their standards. The next important concept in a film is the musical score. Music in a movie helps provide a sense of time and place. It gives an emotional reaction from viewers which allows audiences to react a certain way. Both of these styles are greatly seen in two films.
For example, the filming techniques that Hitchcock uses in the movie are very effective. In the short story, DuMaurier uses sensory imagery to make the readers feel what the characters in the story is experiencing. The effects may be different in the movie and the book, but both of the productions achieve a high level of psychological
The third type of music used for films in the silent era was music that was composed specifically for a particular film. The most notable adaptations used in The Birth of a Nation are in the scene of Lincoln’s assassination as well as at the end of the film. One of the most well known arrangements used in this film is Ride of the Valkyries by Richard Wagner. Other popular arrangements included “Maryland, My Maryland” which was used to help lighten the mood. Joseph Carl Breil was the composer of all the original scores for The Birth of a Nation.
In doing so I will extrapolate on the ideas of the initial article and reveal the ways in which Kazan uses the formal qualities of the film to reinforce the ideas. Given the three-act narrative structure of On the Waterfront, I want to look closely at a number of sequences from each act. From the opening sequence in which Terry Malloy (Marlon Brando) is complicit with the corrupt (Act 1), to his emerging understanding of the corruption characterised by his growing ambivalence (Act 2), to the fight for ‘rights’ (Act 3), the film is rich in its imagery, dialogue and design. There is a careful fusion of all these cinematic elements in the ways that the narrative of conscience, confession and catharsis is played out. For example, throughout the film a strong sense of place is evoked.
Film Essay In each of the three versions of Shakespeare’s Hamlet that are reviewed, camera angle and lighting both play a prominent role in the development of the film. These aspects of the filmmaking process reflect the different interpretations of the play by the directors of each of these three films. In Broadway’s version of Hamlet both camera angle and lighting are used in order to help develop the scene of Ophelia’s funeral. When viewing the procession arriving, although it is unclear what is happening, the camera angle being at eye level allows for the viewer to see all of the actor at the same level as themselves. The director chose to use low key lighting as well.
