Film style's

  1. 1. Flim Style’s<br />
  2. 2. 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:<br />Auteur<br />Avant-Garde film<br />Cinema Verite (Ture in french)<br />French New Wave<br />Film Noir <br />
  3. 3. What as Auteur is?<br />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.<br />
  4. 4. What is Avant-Garde Film?<br />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.<br />
  5. 5. What is Cinema Verite?<br />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.<br />
  6. 6. What is French New Wave About?<br />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.<br />
  7. 7. What is Film Noir?<br />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:<br />1) A narrative based on investigation,<br />2) Extensive use of devices such as flashbacks and voice over,<br />3) A complex representation of the female character,<br />4) A visual style that makes greast use of shadow and contrast in black and white (Gledhill, 1980).<br />
