Mise en-scene pdf

  1. 1. MISE-EN-SCENE Media studies Lucia Segui.
  2. 2. MIS-EN-SCENE Is very important to representation: What a character wears Where the scene in taking place and how it appears Props can signify information about characters Lighting connotes certain meanings about characters.
  3. 3. LOCATION: Where the scene takes place. It can be a real or fictional location, rural or suburban, ancient or futuristic: it all depends on the story. An example is one of the first scenes from The Road to El Dorado, where we can see a medieval Spain so we know the origin of the characters. 
  4. 4. SET DESIGN The creation of film and television scenery, and theater too. This includes the building of rooms, sourcing of furniture and the maintain of the set once it has been built. Set is as important as location because it can tell you about a character without any words being spoken. An example is Rivendell from Lord of the Rings.
  5. 5. COSTUME Costume can include both makeup or wardrobe choices used to convey a character’s personality or status, and to signify these differences between characters. Costume is an important part of signifying the era in which the film is set and advertising that era’s fashions. this picture below is an example of the American biopic drama film Frida.
  6. 6. PROPERTIES (PROPS) These are objects used in the scene. These examples are from Harry Potter. GOLDEN SNITCH MAGIC WAND DIARY
  7. 7. HIGH KEY LIGHTING With this even illumination, the scene appears very bright and soft, with very few shadows in the frame. This style is used most commonly in musicals and comedies, especially of the classic Hollywood age. This example is form Marie Antoinette (2006).
  8. 8. LOW KEY LIGHTING Low-key lighting is the technical opposite of the high-key arrangement, because in low-key the fill light is at a very low level, causing the frame to be cast with large shadows. In my opinion these are one of the best examples. Touch of Evil (1958) Citizen Kane (1941).
