There are also freeze-frames and jump cuts, which add to the effect of French New Wave cinema. However, I chose a specific extract from the movie to analyze in detail. What grabbed my attention the most in the movie was the scene where the protagonist shoots the policeman. This scene was particularly interesting since there was major use of jump cuts and other techniques used in French New Wave. This scene, along with the entire movie, reflects on Jean-Luc Godard’s work in all ways possible.
I’ve touched on it several times so far, but the use of shadows in *Out of the Past* stands out as a defining cinematic device from Jacques Tourneur. Obviously, shadows are ingrained in the fiber of any film noir. Deep focus, low key lighting, and expressionistic compositions are standard. But Tourneur goes above and beyond with his use of shadows. He creates beautiful compositions, but more importantly, he uses shadows to define and redefine the mood, and to tell the story.
Kingsman’s and Deadpool’s trailer which one is better In my opinion, both Deadpool’s and Kingsman’s trailer are attractive, and they also do good job by used variety of devices to attract the audiences like sound/music, color, amount of detail given, narration or dialog. However, in some points, which made Kingman’s trailer did better than Deadpool such as in Kingsman’s trailer, they used ethos to get trust from the audience and make them believe that this film will be good or the wise way they used the amount of detail given make the audience curious about the film and the way they put music in the trailer. Firstly, let’s talk about the music in Deadpool’s and Kingsman’s trailer. In Deadpool’s trailer, they added some sound at the beginning
Baz Luhrmann is widely acknowledged for his Red Curtain Trilogy which are films aimed at heightening an artificial nature and for engaging the audience. Through an examination of the films Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby, the evolution and adaptation of his techniques become evident. Luhrmann’s belief in a ‘theatrical cinema’ can be observed to varying degrees through the three films and his choice to employ cinematic techniques such as self-reflexivity, pastiche and hyperbolic hyperbole. The cinematic technique of self-reflexivity allows a film to draw attention to itself as ‘not about naturalism’ and asks the audience to suspend their disbelief and believe in the fictional construct of the film. Self-reflexivity is employed in Romeo + Juliet by immediately drawing attention to the fact that the film is represented as a news report rather than the original format of a Shakespearean play.
The assertion that Tim Burton uses cinematic techniques to control the mood of the scene comes close to identifying a stylistic trait, though it is still fairly general. Extensive use of textual evidence of the effect of cinematic techniques from multiple films is a clear strength of this essay. Well-developed elaboration of the textual evidence and especially sophisticated transitional devices puts this exemplar firmly in the Exemplary proficiency band. The commentary enhances the specific evidence provided and is wide-ranging and insightful, showing a deep understanding of cinematic techniques and how they create specific effects in mood and atmosphere. The last paragraph brings the analysis to a satisfying and perceptive conclusion by returning to the central concept that Burton’s style is characterized by a desire to “control the audiences’ emotions, and twist the mood of the scene.” This control of the essay through organization and progression of ideas is supplemented by the precise use of cinematic vocabulary and generally sophisticated sentence structure and
Baz Luhrmann is known world wide for his eccentric and flamboyant film-making style. Luhrmann’s signature bright colours, fast-paced camera-cuts and zooms, and bold costumes are all key characteristics of his films and assist Luhrmann in putting forward the themes and motifs he regards as essential in each of his works. However, Luhrmann still receives much criticism for not staying true to the original source material of the stories he introduces to the big screen. One fails to realize the fact that, “Luhrmann’s films are not so much adaptations as re-imaginings” (Vogue Magazine) and through analysis of his various techniques, as well as his overall cinematic language in his films, “Strictly Ballroom” (1992), “Romeo + Juliet” (1996) and “The Great Gatsby”, one can see this clearly, through Luhrmann’s evolution as a director. Luhrmann makes his films his own from the start, the opening scenes of all three of these films implement post-modern techniques which instantly informs the audience that they are entering into Luhrmann’s
The artistic choices made in the production of cinema have a great impact on the way the audience will perceive certain aspects of the performance. One director may choose to highlight a certain scene, while another director may push it aside as trivial. A majority of the symbolism behind theatre lends itself to open interpretation, but some underlying messages have a widely accepted truth. In Nicholas Hytner’s 1996 interpretation of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, lighting and camera angles help accentuate the importance of particular moments throughout the film. I chose to analyze the courthouse scene in which Deputy Danforth asks Elizabeth whether or not John Proctor committed the crime of adultery.
