In this essay I will discuss the formal and stylistic innovations of these three films by highlighting some of the best scenes, as well as how they relate to certain theories and themes and their place in the French New Wave. One of Godard’s most well-known editing techniques in his films is his use of
In the script, People who can park and those who can 't, I tried to create a screenplay for a short film that would be funny yet still be relatable.

Demonstrating the movement of Impressionism was to emulate the internal state of mind the audience would have experienced through that time. Chapter 12 from the source allows the
Light couldn't be brought in too close to the action since the camera was very sensitive to it, so scaffolding had to be built to place the lights farther away.” pg1 As seen in the screenshots in Image 1.1, the film had high contrast and saturated colours. These were a creative choice made by the filmmakers to use the 65mm Kodak Eastman negative. Image 1.2 In the 2016 Ben-Hur remake, the cinematography during the chariot race sequence creatively pays homage to the 1952 film by using similar angles but adds some dynamic camera movement. The digital cameras used by the director of photography, Oliver Wood, were several ARRI ALEXA Series cameras, GoPro (Woodman Labs) cameras and Red Digital Cinema cameras.
