The script was designed to include as many language and descriptive techniques as possible, so that I could demonstrate a wide range of knowledge and understanding. This can be seen with multiple characters, dialogue, camera shots, slow-motion, transitions, and actions being added to the script. The screenplay is written in the industry standard format, however, as this form of writing is new to me, I did have difficulty in portraying some of the information. An example of this was having to find a way to professionally portray text on a black title page. I wanted the film to be split up into people who could, and people who couldn 't park, to achieve this I wanted black screens with text to appear acting as a separator.
As argued by Andrew Dix, ‘narrative reoccurrence may also denote the complexity and ambiguity of an event, its openness to multiple interpretations’ (2008, 114), and Pulp Fiction certainly supports this. An example would be in the prologue of Pulp Fiction, where the action and event isn’t resolved till the end, emphasising the films relationship between film time and real time. It is this which makes the shot chosen in the opening scene to be an essential part in the films overall narrative, something viewers are unaware of. Here, the minimal use of camera movement is to be crucial to the contribution to the storytelling within the sequence. The initial shot is of the two protagonists, Ringo and Yolanda who are sat at a table of what looks
As the adaptation of the book took place, the story moved along several stages from screenplay writer to director and producer, each with an interpretation unique to them. The variance in the final film owes itself to the artistic license that allowed them the right to mold the story to their will. As disproportionate changes of variable magnitude are made, the emotional undertone finds itself on a tangent. “She is not my wife. She is the mother of my children.” (Schnabel) The disengagement between Bauby and Sylvie is evident in both the book and the film.
The Film “Citizen Kane” challenged the traditional narrative and technical elements of traditional Hollywood by providing an illusion of movement and expressive use of light in multiple scenes. In this film the narrator expressed that Charles Foster Kane utilized his strengths which was media, newspapers that is how he reached the people, how he could manipulate the readers to read whatever story he wanted to showcase. What was very noticeable to me was mostly that the story was being told in a non-chronological order, throughout the story the course of events are sort of shuffled around for the viewer to decipher the plot while exploring how, when and why Kane died and everything leading to his death. This particular filmmaker by choosing to utilize the non-chronological approach was able to use flashbacks of his life, plenty of voice-over work to summarize the plot. He also photographed the sets from high angles and low angles to acquire a more authentic look.
Through publishing these pieces of different shots to create a series, I think Vertov wanted to present the effect of making the audience understand the difference between a narrative film and a database movie. The notion that the "Man With a Movie Camera" is not a theoretical film emerges as it does not have a basis on a traditional story line. The editing of the database shots also served to change the view of films as not only based on traditional narratives commonly known to be comfortable when
Film and written literature have often gone hand in hand. Written literature has often served as an inspiration for film. Directors often make movie adaptations of books and people who have read the book will often criticize the movie for lacking important detail covered in the book. Film, depending on many factors can often be better than the book, or at least do it justice. Since the conception of film many have argued that written literature will be obsolete.
Comparing The Book The Great Gatsby to the Film Many literary works have been adapted into movies, however, books offer more detailed information to the audience compared to the movies. The Great Gatsby is an example of a novel that was adapted into a movie directed by Baz Luhrmann. According to Batchelor, even though the movie and the book can be compared, the film does not stay true to the original text (45). However, Luhrmann is not the only producer that has stayed true to the original authors writing. Nonetheless, he stays true to the theme and the plot of the original story.
Alternatively, in order to learn more about the films of a director completely, one must study them in respect to one another to be able to distinguish the similarities and differences they have and apply it to the creative structure of the director. Thus, it does not matter how established a director is in directing, but rather how he executes the film and relays specific and striking qualities onto the screen. For instance, in the films of Hitchcock, the recurring themes that are, the transference of guilt from one individual to another, the fascination with a guilty woman, and suspense, the most
The director used the background sound and many filmmaking stiles in a matter whereas to fill the audience with mystery, suspense and drama thought the movie. The main theme was a challenge to understand in the beginning of the movie, but as the movie moved along towards the end it became clearer and clearer. This movie had many themes some are related to free will, other are moved towards the idea that nothing is perfect. Although the many themes the theme that from the begging towards the end that appeared over and over again, was that we make our own destiny, we choose where life takes us, nothing is set in stone for we are free to decide what we
It is clear that his work and interest in Blake’s work comes from interests in both computer science and literature; but at times that served as a blind spot for him rather than serve as something that could aid in keeping his audience interested throughout the essay. Whenever he spoke about the coding and programming portion of his work with his twitter bot, he described terms and concept in detail, but failed to keep his literature audience engaged in that section of the essay. In another paragraph, where he brought up Sea and Spar Between, and the inspiration that Montfort and Strickland had in combining Moby Dick and Dickinson poetry, he was no longer appealing to his computer science audience. He detailed all of the concepts, terms, and works he was discussing but still failed to acknowledge the fact that he was more lettered on both the topics of the literature and coding programs that he was discussing than his
