I choose to make the graphic novel black and white because that is how film started. It is extremely indicative of how the history of film has driven the level of movies we are able to see today. Also though, I choose to print and paste photos from different films, as that represents where technology for films is today. We have so much amazing technology that pretty much anyone who wants to can make their own movie. Both of these elements show how film has been affected by its
The mise-en-sense and the sound in the opening attracted the audiences’ attention. The analysis will base on the intern of mise-en-scene, cinematography, editing and sound and will presents how these things effective to the overall film narration. NARRATIVE
In making sure this movie became a crowd pleaser the director also made choices others might not agree with. The serious messages of the story are, with a few exceptions, all shown very casually. Many would have rather seen a movie telling these women’s stories less flippantly. There isThe story of Kathrine Goble is a perfect example of how to make a
I think it was creative of her to reference a well-known philosopher and that she was able to use it to have the reader thinking about movies they’ve watched and figure out whether they’ve actually seen any movie at all with a feminine monster and if they did, then they’d compare them to the masculine monster causing the reader to think even more! It also made it easy to attain a
The films found in this movie were challenging at times to find but as the film progressed the themes became apparent to me. I liked the initial struggle to find meaning in the film while being able to continue and discover the themes as the film moved forward. I agree with many of the critics that this film was executed flawlessly and the director, Guillermo del Toro, did an amazing job at portraying his ideas into film. When reading reviews and commentaries on what others thought about the film I seemed to agree more and more. I agree that power is oftentimes skewed and leads to inequality and rage, as we found in Vidal’s life and the unraveling of his seemingly perfect grand plan in the ending to the movie.
The element of lighting is a sophisticated element to a movie. It has the power to control what you see and also overwhelm you when it needs to. During my discovery of this movie, I found that colors told the story just as much as the dialogue. It just goes to show that the most significant films cover all the ends of telling a story through the medium of film. Now the fun part, the analyst of The Shawshank Redemption’s use of light and color in painting the picture of its theme of hope.
The ending is outstanding and we can say that it is a selling point of this film: the twist ending. It shocks the audiences when the story reveals that Vera and Vicente is the same person, but somehow some people can guess that the film will end up like this since the middle of the story. Actually, if we watch the film closely, you will see the clue hidden throughout the film. We can observe from the scene that Vicente talks to Christina about the dress that he wants her to wear, but she tells him to wear it himself; and the scene which shows Vera dreaming about Vicente. The audiences might question why Vera dreams about Vicente or what connection they have.
Spielberg did an amazing job at setting the mood for each scene. For instance, he would intensify the music when something significant was about to happen, putting the viewers on the edge of their seats. Spielberg also used gloomy coloring to get the viewer to feel the emotion of the characters at given times. Even the way that some scenes were shot made it more intriguing to watch. When Katherine (Meryl Streep) was on the phone discussing the potential downfall if they were to publish, Spielberg filmed an aerial shot.
The movie posters mainly serve the needs of the movie makers, whose ultimate purpose is to popularize the movie. To create a successful movie poster, designers need to go deeper into them. Therefore, they occasionally design several posters for the same movie. The two posters I am studying are for a science fiction movie "Inception,” which may appear to be a little bit analogous in their overall mood, but quite different in colors, fonts, various codes they comprise, etc. The first poster is a popular movie cliché – a silhouetted loner, who is also the main character of the movie, viewed from behind and placed in the center so that he immediately grasps the attention of the viewer.
Women typically would prefer romance and men vouch for action. However, in this course, I learned about one movie called ‘Sepet’ this film can be considered as captivated and unique even the love theme is not so bold or excessive like other romantic movies. Sepet was produced by an independent film director, Yasmin Ahmad in 2004, and this film garnered strong reactions by public and media because it not only served the viewers with the element of love but also touched on the sensitive yet always been ignored issues like stereotypes between races in Malaysia, gender and class issue and also the relationship between mother and son.
