      • ‘ mise-en-scene’:
      • Why are lighting, location, props and costumes important to any TV drama?
      • Note down the reasons………….
    • Answer……………
      • Mise-en-scene creates a feeling of ‘realism’ about the plot – it makes the TV drama believable.
      • It also makes characters seem more plausible and ‘real’.

    • Close-up shot………..
      • Focus on actor and their emotions!
      A more ‘personal’ shot - less emphasis on background.
    • Mid-shot……………..
      • We see the actor and where they are.
      Both characters and location are important.
    • Long-shot………………
      • Emphasis is on where we are in drama.
      The location is significant! It communicates something to us about story.
