    Vertovleger Vertovleger Presentation Transcript

    • Vertov / Leger / Manovich
    • Building Blocks of Film
      • Frames (the actual still images recorded on film stock)
      • Shot (one uninterrupted run of the camera)
      • Cut (a change from one shot to another)
      • Mise-En-Scene (what we see and hear in the shot)
      • Cinematography (the angle, height, distance of the camera taking the shot)
      • Editing (putting shots together)
    • Montage Theory
      • Rhythmic juxtaposing of shots (often
      • associatively related or purposively contrasting)
      • Temporal Montage (sequentially alternating
      • shots over time)
      • Spatial montage (simultaneously juxtaposing
      • images on the same screen)
    • Vertov (and Leger) as Database Cinema
      • Resist conventional narrative structures (through montage).
      • Attempt to represent the collective experience rather than the story of an individual character.
      • Work to develop a unique language of film (distinct from fiction, theater, or painting).
    • Continuing Influence of Vertov and Leger
      • Offer meta-reflection about how the medium (cinematography) shapes our understanding of ourselves and our world.
      • Cinematographic and editing techniques influences the development of later cinema, computer interfaces, and video games.
    • Key Questions
      • How do these films envision the relationship between humans and technology?
      • How have Vertov and Leger’s cinematic techniques influenced subsequent media composers?
      • How do these films represent women and men differently?
      • What kind of “arguments” do these films make about the societies / places / people that they represent?
