Therefore, filmmakers had to make changes in order to create a narrative cinema. As Thompson discusses “the classical cinema resulted from a major shift in assumptions about the relation of the spectator to film and the relation of a film’s form to its style” (158). This started the change of film from “primitive” cinema to “classical cinema” (157)(162). Films began to use these techniques in order to make “a unified narrative” and allow for the development of “verisimilitude” (158) (163). Their theories will be applied to three of Griffith’s films, The Lonedale Operator (1911), The New York Hat (1912) and A Mothering Heart (1913).

Due to the different characteristics of the written and visual media, adapting plays into films poses many problems. These problems are further complicated when one decides to transform the film into a modern adaptation of a play. Here I will outline some of the problems I have found when adapting Sophocles’ “Oedipus the King” into a feature film. I will also include the difficulties experienced by other screenwriters when taking on this task and the thoughts of film critic André Bazin concerning the adaptation of the stage play into a film. One of the most fundamental problems of adapting a play is the necessity to bridge the gaps in the play, such as flashbacks that explain how the story came about and how the characters ended up in this

When you use the processes of recording, editing and mixing of sounds you greatly enhance the quality of the movie. This essay is an overview of producing high quality sound from elements like music, the recording of common every day sounds and the use of hi-tech equipment. Whether it takes place in the production stage or the post- production stage of sound design. To help explain this analysis I am using the animated movie Wall-E made in 2008 by Ben Burtt as a case study .

Psychoanalysis and Behaviourism are two contrasting personality theories, each with strong viewpoints on how one’s behaviour is created and maintained.

Both will be used to explain the situation, coming to a conclusion as to which theory can best describe their behaviour which resulted in parricide. Human behaviour is very complex and challenging to understand, categorise and analyse as there are so many interdependent factors to consider. Both Psychoanalysis and Behaviourism were considered highly influential theories in the early-to-mid-1900’s,
