Bright Lights Film Journal Train to Somewhere Hou Hsiao-hsien Pays Sweet Homage to Ozu in Café Lumière Hou honors the master while remaining true to his own vision The 100th anniversary of the birth of Yasujiro Ozu on December 12, 1903 has seen the release of films by two major international art cinema directors — Abbas Kiarostami and Hou Hsiao-hsien — that are explicit homages to Ozu. In the case of Kiarostami's Five (2003), the connection with Ozu is remote to say the least: a 74-minute film consisting of five static shots of the seashore, its willful denial of Kiarostami's own strengths as a narrative filmmaker makes it little more than an interesting experiment, more at home in the art gallery than the cinema. And the connection with Ozu? storyboards What is a storyboard? Once a concept or script is written for a film or animation, the next step is to make a storyboard. A storyboard visually tells the story of an animation panel by panel, kind of like a comic book. Your storyboard will should convey some of the following information: What charaters are in the frame, and how are they moving?

A Closed Door That Leaves Us Guessing So, that's a director. You, who are beginning to make films, you must keep a bit of The Tramp in you, and you must have begun already to have a bit of A Countess from Hong Kong in you too. You must always have the extreme youth of The Tramp that wants to speak against society, that we're on the street, that we have the sky and belong to mankind, and you must have begun already to have a bit of A Countess from Hong Kong, being very old and a bit bitter. That, in order to say as he does in that film, that society has let go of him, that it doesn't take an interest in him any more. Here, perhaps it's different in Japan, because the Japanese relationship with old age is completely different. As Deleuze put it very well: an old man is not only somebody who is just old, and is only that, he's also someone who has been released by society.

Millennium Mambo review - movie review of the Hsiao-hsien Hou fi Millennium Mambo Directed by Hsiao-hsien Hou As Millenium Mambo opens, following Vicky (Qi Shu) as she walks with an ecstatic grace on a bridge, almost floating in complete silence, you get instantly taken by the beauty of the scene, getting the feeling you're in for something unique. And it is. Eisenstein's montage theory Montage--juxtaposing images by editing--is unique to film (and now video). During the 1920s, the pioneering Russian film directors and theorists Sergei Eisenstein and Dziga Vertov demonstrated the technical, aesthetic, and ideological potentials of montage. The 'new media' theorist Lev Manovich has pointed out how much these experiments of the 1920s underlie the aesthetics of contemporary video. Eisenstein believed that film montage could create ideas or have an impact beyond the individual images. Two or more images edited together create a "tertium quid" (third thing) that makes the whole greater than the sum of its individual parts.
