  2. 2. Overacting<br />Making up to achieve expression<br />Music speed or slow according to action<br />Comic situation/absurd<br />Subtitles introducing scenes<br />Lots of movements <br />Voice in of/sound<br />Transitions between images<br />Old fashioned<br />Examples<br />
  3. 3. Overacting in silent films is the fact greatly exaggerated tone or attitude of the character representing.<br />
  4. 4. They put too much making up to express more the expressions of the characters: sadness, happiness… for put much comedy. <br />
  5. 5. The music is the rhythm of the film, when the director want that one of the parts of the film was more intensive, he/she will put a fast music, and when he/she wants that the part of the film was more calm he/she will put a slowly music.<br />
  6. 6. Silent comedy refers to a style of acting, related to but distinct from mime, invented to bring comedy into the medium of film in the silent film era (1900s–1920s) before a (synchronized) sound track on film was technologically practicable. Silent comedy is still practiced, albeit much less frequently, but it has influenced comedy in modern media as well.<br />
  7. 7. Because silent films had no synchronized sound for dialogue, onscreen intertitles were used to narrate story points, present key dialogue and sometimes even comment on the action for the cinema audience. Intertitles (or titles as they were generally called at the time) often became graphic elements themselves, featuring illustrations or abstract decoration that commented on the action. <br />
  8. 8. Silent film actors emphasized body language and facial expression so that the audience could better understand what an actor was feeling and portraying on screen.<br />Most silent films were shot in France at speeds slower than sound films (typically 16 to 20 frames per second versus 24), so unless you apply special techniques to show them to their original speeds may seem artificially fast, which highlights their unnatural appearance. <br />
  9. 9. From the beginning, music was recognized as essential, contributing to the atmosphere and giving the audience vital emotional cues. (Musicians sometimes played on film sets during shooting for similar reasons.) Small town and neighbourhood movie theatres usually had a pianist.Beginning in the mid-1910s, large city theatres tended to have organists or ensembles of musicians<br />
  10. 10. With the lack of natural colour processing available, films of the silent era were frequently dipped in dyestuffs and dyed various shades and hues to signal a mood or represent a time of day. Blue represented night scenes, yellow or amber meant day. Red represented fire and green represented a mysterious mood. Similarly, toning of film (such as the common silent film generalization of sepia-toning) with special solutions replaced the silver particles in the film stock with salts or dyes of various colours. A combination of tinting and toning could be used as an effect that could be striking.<br />
  11. 11. As the silent films were shot in the early 80's, dressed in a fashion that now seems past, but really for its time it wasn’t. And in the following films that were shot later not to lose the characteristics of the time, kept the clothing.<br />
