Film style's Film style's Presentation Transcript

  • Flim Style’s
  • For part of our homework we had to research film style’s and what they meant. Along with some example. Below are the film style’s we were asked to research:
    Avant-Garde film
    Cinema Verite (Ture in french)
    French New Wave
    Film Noir
  • What as Auteur is?
    A Auteur is a film director who is know for his/her distinctive individual film style so that his/her artistic skill in creating the overall product of the film makes him/her itsauthour- or auteur.
  • What is Avant-Garde Film?
    Avant-Garde films are experimental and outside the mainstream - and can be the subject of fierce discussion and debate because they can challenge what has become the norm. What was regarded as avant-garde in the past has often become the norm with the passage of time and changing views and standards.
  • What is Cinema Verite?
    Cinema Verite is a genre of a film that the film-maker shoots as a documentary-style along with the documentary-style the film-maker tries not to interferawith the scenes being the filmed. The film-maker normally shoots the scenes with a hand-held camera. Cinema Verite can also be know as Direct Cinema.
  • What is French New Wave About?
    New Wave is a style of film-making that developed in the late 1950s and 1960s that was a reaction against established French cinema and emphasised the unvonventiakity and individual styles of directors. Examples of infulential New Wave fim-makers were Francois Truffaaut and Jean-Luc Godard.
  • What is Film Noir?
    Film Noir are often dark crime thrillers and the style has developed as a genre characterised by highly stylised techniques and fatalistic themes. A good example is 'Double Indemnity' which is moody and beautifully designed with a wife's murder of her husband at the centre of the plot. Four main aspects of film Noir have been identified:
    1) A narrative based on investigation,
    2) Extensive use of devices such as flashbacks and voice over,
    3) A complex representation of the female character,
    4) A visual style that makes greast use of shadow and contrast in black and white (Gledhill, 1980).
