College Film & Media Studies Mise en scène encompasses the most recognizable attributes of a film – the setting and the actors; it includes costumes and make-up, props, and all the other natural and artificial details that characterize the spaces filmed. The term is borrowed from a French theatrical expression, meaning roughly “put into the scene”. In other words, mise-en-scène describes the stuff in the frame and the way it is shown and arranged. We have organized this page according to four general areas: setting, lighting, costume and staging. At the end we have also included some special effects that are closely related to mise-en-scène.

Film Scene Analysis: Cinematography and Mise-en-scène in American Beauty The aim of this video is to demonstrate how cinematic techniques are used to show meaning and visually express moods and themes. It uses two scenes from the movie American Beauty (American Beauty IMDb Page) —the two office scenes featuring Lester (Kevin Spacey) and Brad (Barry Del Sherman). I’ve kept the video short and simple, so it should be suitable for anyone interested in learning about movie making. The cinematic techniques discussed in the video are related to mise-en-scène, which is the term used to describe everything ‘put into the scene’.

The methods you use to analyze a film are closely related to those used to analyze literature; nevertheless, films are multimedial. They are visual media made for viewers.

All 2,400 Shots in Gone Girl by David Fincher Click to enlarge Analyzing the average shot length (ASL) of films / TV / music videos can be very telling or completely irrelevant. Taken as its own metric…it is just a number. The supposition that action / thriller / sci-fi films genres have a shorter ASL is statistically accurate but that does not mean a longer ASL means less tension, action, drama or intensity. I have been deep-diving into ASL statistics for several years and shared a lot of SHAREABLES to help filmmakers and cinephiles further comprehend the mystery behind the numbers. David Fincher is a precise and peerless filmmaker that accepts nothing short of perfection.

teen films as a platform for teenage consumerism This post will examine the semiotics of teen films. The term semiotics refers to how meaning is constructed and understood. In particular, I want to focus on teen films that act as a platform for driving consumer culture. These films equate the becoming of adolescence as an entry point into a world made up of obsessional hierarchy, status and the accumulation of commodities. I will deal primarily with films about teenagers, not films targeted at teenagers. 5 great activities for using movies in the EFL class Persuading students of the usefulness of watching English-language movies at home isn’t hard, but there are many things you can do to bring films into the classroom as well.
