    Mise en scene Mise en scene Presentation Transcript

    • Analysing Images Introduction to Film Language Mise-En-Scene
    • Mise-En-Scene
      • … is a French term meaning what is put into a scene or frame
      • … is made up of visual information in front of the camera
      • … communicates essential information to the audience about setting (time & place) and characters
      • … is made up of 5 elements: Can you guess what they are?
    • The 5 Elements of Mise en Scene
      • Settings & Props
      • Costume, Hair & Make Up
      • Facial Expressions & Body Language
      • Lighting & Colour
      • Positioning of characters/objects within the frame
      Each aspect of mise-en-scene creates meanings and communicates them to the audience, influencing how we are feel at a certain point
    • Settings & Props
      • Settings & Locations play an important part in film-making and are not just ‘backgrounds’
      • Sets are either built from scratch or a great deal of time is spent to find a setting which already exists
      • Settings can manipulate an audience by building certain expectations and then taking a different turn
      • TASK: What settings and props you would find in:
          • a Science Fiction Film
          • a Romantic Comedy
          • a Horror Film
    • Costume, Hair & Make Up
      • Tell us immediately whether the film is set in the present and what society/or culture it will centre around
      • Act as an instant indicator to the audience of a character’s personality, status & job
      • Certain costumes can signify certain individuals (e.g. black cloak of a vampire) or groups (e.g. policemen)
    • Facial Expressions & Body Language
      • Facial Expressions provide a clear indicator of how someone is feeling
      • If someone is smiling broadly, we assume they are happy but we may get a different feeling if this is accompanied by scary music
      • Body Language may also indicate how a character feels towards another character or may reflect the state of their relationship
      • TASK: What meanings/emotions do the following images convey:
    • IMAGE 1
    • IMAGE 2
    • IMAGE 3
    • Positioning of Characters & Objects within a frame
      • Positioning within a frame can draw our attention to an important character/object
      • A film-maker can use positioning to indicate relationships between people
      • TASK: What does the positioning in the following images reveal about the characters/film:
    • IMAGE 1
    • IMAGE 2
    • IMAGE 3
    • IMAGE 4
      • Colour carries certain connotations which may add meaning to a scene
      • It can give a scene a particular look, feel or mood
      • It may also be used for dramatic effect
    • How does MES convey period?
    • Lighting & Colour
      • Lighting & Colour can be used to achieve a variety of effects:
      • To highlight important characters or objects within the frame
      • To make characters look mysterious by shading sections of the face & body
      • To reflect a characters mental state/hidden emotions
    • Types of Lighting
      • Created by using only the key & back lights
      • Produces sharp contrasts of light and dark areas
      • Deep, distinct shadows/silhouettes are formed
      • Example: Horror Films
    • Types of Lighting
      • More filler lights are used. Lighting is natural and realistic to our eyes
      • Produces brightly lit sets or a sunny day (right)
      • Example: Rom-Coms
    • What types of lighting are used in the following images: A F D C E B
    • For each image, answer the following questions:
      • What type of lighting is used in each image (High or Low Key)?
      • Where are the KEY LIGHTS, FILLER LIGHTS & BACK LIGHTS in each image?
      • What effects/meanings does the lighting suggest?
    • Bringing it all together!
    • Now you try!
