Regardless of my views on the outcome of this film, its content also has a lot of storytelling within its deep subject matter. Films today usually forego character development and story progression as improvement in technology and visual effects would be the only effective instrument in catching the eye of the audiences. It is rare nowadays that films would tell great epic stories, without the extensive use of visuals. Therefore my full praise can only go to the innovative technical aspect of the film balanced well with concise story
“Blood Brother” was directed by Steve Hoover and produced by Danny Yourd on October 18, 2013. The lead actors Steve Hoover, and his friend Rocky Brat, a medical volunteer, traveled to India to document Steve Hoovers’ work with children who lived with HIV. This documentary is very inspirational and it has taught me not to be afraid to go for your dreams even if people do not agree. It also taught me that most people’s fears stem from not knowing or being uneducated about HIV. In this documentary the lead actor Rocky Brat traveled to India without any idea of what he was getting himself into.
The data from analysis will then be organised and compared to prove the theory that the digital age has changed the way stories are told through film. 3.1 METHODOLOGY OF THE STUDY The research for this thesis is carried out by watching and analysing the chariot race sequence in the films Ben-Hur (1959) by director William Wyler and Ben-Hur (2016) by director Timur Bekmambetov. The analysis is based on the knowledge obtained from academic writings both in the form of books and online articles. First, I will discuss the cinematography between Ben-Hur (1959) and Ben-Hur (2016), then we will look at an analysis of the editing between the two films. Lastly, we observe the difference in sound mixing of the chariot race sequence in the third act of both films.
However, the detailed and significant changes showcased in the documentary film might be as a result of the constant spotlight(camera) on her. Although the medium through which the story was exhibited might have contributed to the changes and differences in the story, the difference in time contributed the most to the changes in the story.
This essay will look at the film techniques of narration, setting and special effects including how the director applies them into Amélie, and how these influence the film, creating it into a modern fairy tale. The director uses the technique of narration to help create the film Amélie into a modern fairy tale. At the very beginning of movie the narrator presents each of the characters – describing their likes, dislikes and quirks. To a viewer this gives an insight that normally wouldn’t be possible, allowing to see who they are but it also sets the mood and setting for the remainder of the story. In conjunction with that, it demonstrates a surreal element to the film (with surrealism also being a typical quality that fairy tales have) because there is no narrator in real life which makes it feel more like a fairy tale.
Script vs. Film The script developed by Davis Show is easy-to-understand and imaginative enough to build bright pictures of the events. The script is well-written as it includes such essential constitutes as detailed descriptions of the scenes, consistency of actions with the value of each scene for the ongoing events, and the vision of how those scenes must be shot along with the camera positioning and movements. Moreover, he provides special notes for actors to reach the extent of feeling the role rather than just understanding or remembering it. The scriptwriter uses NB remarks that form the depth of the scene. His bright images make the reading exciting.
The post-production soundtracks that the film set includes natural voice, local music and poetry. The film also contains footages that has different point of view from different perspective on two different lands. Such documentary is a really in depth piece of art that focus heavily on the creation of natural sounds, and relativity light on the visual senses. In the film, by separating the visual and auditory, viewers can enhance the concentration of the pictures and also escape synchronied sound environment. As a result of that, as a viewer of this film, I can truly feel such unique way of presentation of the film allow different perspective to be brought out, and give audiences a better understanding of what the “fact” is
The two different versions of the same story differ because of the settings that they each have. While the movie has many locations it strays from the original play that only had one location. The director of the movie might have added locations to make the visuals more interesting. When a movie is set in only one space it can become boring for the viewer. Therefore,
Just like stories, Hollywood films have elements. According to Ashford (2017), there are 9 elements in making of a Hollywood storyline. First, is the theme, which pertains to the author’s point or the message of the movie itself. Also, it does not have to be one theme; it can be two or more. Second, is the hero.
Narrative “Movies are a combination of art and science” (Syd Field, 2005, page2) without the correct science behind art, art is just an idea. When looking at films its quite clear that there is a huge amount of structure behind it and even when looking at art in general you can perceive what the artist saw before actually creating the art work. In story telling the script writer/author has a picture of the end product before its written Narrative usually intertwines with actions or events that affect us as humans. In our term project ‘Romeo and Juliet..and Chante’ the events in the story affects Juliet as a person which the narrative is ultimately based on, her emotions, her actions and how the incidents in the story affect her as a whole. The term
