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.
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.
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.
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.
These are objects used in the scene. These examples are from
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).
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
Touch of Evil (1958) Citizen Kane (1941).
