I have also produced a PDF revision guide that covers this PowerPoint but also includes MANY more activities. As it’s a PDF it it’s formatted perfectly for you to use and carry around with you on all your devices or if you so wish, print. This means it's perfect for students looking to revise and for teachers wanting to quickly set exciting, detailed and relevant tasks. It can be bought from my Sellfy Shop here: https://sellfy.com/p/J0Ei/ and can be previewed (and bought) from my Scribd shop here: https://www.scribd.com/doc/266119725/GCSE-Film-Studies-Revision-Guide-for-Paper-1-Exploring-Film-Superhero-films


There will be more detail on the links above, but it’s a 130+ page PDF that covers as much as I can think of for the revision of Paper 1 of the WJEC Film Studies GCSE. It’s only £5 BUT get in touch with me on twitter @Moreno_Melgar and I'll send you a discount code for £1.50 off for a limited time. Once you buy a copy I will automatically email you whenever it’s updated and improved.

This PowerPoint is a 200+ long series of slides, aimed at revising GCSE Film Studies Paper 1, Exploring Film. It has four main functions for both teachers and students; 1, in looking at what the exam will cover and how to approach the questions, 2, in quickly revising genre and superhero films, 3, in revising key aspects of film language (also known as micro features) and 4, by revising the film industry and how films ate marketed. As this is a revision guide, many of the aspects are only revised and re-touched upon, but there are many activities and tasks for teachers and staff and links to a wide variety of clips to help prepare students for the exam. There are also many screenshots and images for use.

There are many non-standard fonts used in this presentation. This means that after you have downloaded there is a very good chance that your version of the presentation looks a bit strange. If you change fonts to something more standard and of similar sizes will resolve this. All of the links to clips on here were working when originally published but as I do not have control over them they may be removed outside of my control.

Many, many thanks and I hope this is of use to you and others.

  77. 77. Mise-en-scene Costume, hair and make-up. Costume and hair are important as they reflect a character’s personality. This is tied in with representation; what do we learn about them and who do they represent without telling us directly?

  97. 97. Mise-en-scene Lighting: Light or dark? Good or bad? Spotlight or filler light? Bright or gloomy? High key or low key lighting?
  98. 98. Lighting: You can move lights to create different effects. Where do you think the key light would be placed in these situations: •  Under lighting •  Top lighting •  Back lighting
  99. 99. Lighting:
  100. 100. ACTOR FILLER LIGHT KEY LIGHT BACK LIGHT CAMERA
  101. 101. •  The Key Light is usually the brightest light. It is used to light up the entire scene. •  The Back Light is designed to help stop the Key Light being too ‘fake’ looking and help cut out the obvious brightness of the Key Light. •  The Filler Light helps to soften the shadows that are created from the other two lights. There are often more than 1 filler lights used.
  102. 102. Lighting: Analysis What atmosphere is being created here? How are we supposed to feel? What is the lighting suggesting here? (Think dark vs. light = Good vs. Bad) How is the lighting different? Why is the lighting different? How would YOU create those lighting effects?
  103. 103. Lighting: Analysis What atmosphere is being created here? How are we supposed to feel? What is the lighting suggesting here? (Think dark vs. light = Good vs. Bad) How is the lighting different? Why is the lighting different? How would YOU create those lighting effects?

  108. 108. Mise-en-scene Colour: What colours stand out in the scene? Is this important or significant in any way? What might the colour represent? Is the colour natural or added ‘in post’?
  109. 109. •  When film was first invented the use of colour film was not an option as it hadn’t been created. •  Eventually the use of colour film was an option but originally was very expensive. •  Directors instead found ways to use light to make black and white films look visually interesting and to create ideas such as the way light was used in Film Noir films.
  110. 110. What is the light suggesting here?
  111. 111. •  When colour was first used in film it was also used for effect such as this clip from the Wizard of Oz. •  Watch this clip and think about why this has been done by the director? If the audience is used to black and white, why have they used colour in this way?
  112. 112. •  It doesn’t have to be for just one thing on the screen however. •  Using computers, every scene can have the colour change to suit the mood of the scene. •  In these two shoots from Gladiator, the colour has been graded. •  Why is one shot more ‘yellow’ and one more ‘blue? •  What mood or atmosphere is the director trying to get across? Colour grading
  113. 113. Colour grading for genres •  Modern Horror Films use blue a lot to create a certain look for their films Saw   The  Ring   Nightmare  on  Elm  
  114. 114. End of the world / Apocalypse films. Why are these colours so ‘washed out’? (Very dull colours of grey and yellow.)

  121. 121. Mise-en-scene Analysis What do we learn about this situation and the characters from their facial expression and body language?

  124. 124. Mise-en-scene Positions of people or objects: What or who is most important in this scene? How can we tell? Why are somethings in the middle of the screen? Why is there a ‘space’ in the back of the screen?

I have also produced a PDF revision guide that covers this PowerPoint but also includes MANY more activities. As it’s a PDF it it’s formatted perfectly for you to use and carry around with you on all your devices or if you so wish, print. This means it's perfect for students looking to revise and for teachers wanting to quickly set exciting, detailed and relevant tasks. It can be bought from my Sellfy Shop here: https://sellfy.com/p/J0Ei/ and can be previewed (and bought) from my Scribd shop here: https://www.scribd.com/doc/266119725/GCSE-Film-Studies-Revision-Guide-for-Paper-1-Exploring-Film-Superhero-films There will be more detail on the links above, but it’s a 130+ page PDF that covers as much as I can think of for the revision of Paper 1 of the WJEC Film Studies GCSE. It’s only £5 BUT get in touch with me on twitter @Moreno_Melgar and I'll send you a discount code for £1.50 off for a limited time. Once you buy a copy I will automatically email you whenever it’s updated and improved. This PowerPoint is a 200+ long series of slides, aimed at revising GCSE Film Studies Paper 1, Exploring Film. It has four main functions for both teachers and students; 1, in looking at what the exam will cover and how to approach the questions, 2, in quickly revising genre and superhero films, 3, in revising key aspects of film language (also known as micro features) and 4, by revising the film industry and how films ate marketed. As this is a revision guide, many of the aspects are only revised and re-touched upon, but there are many activities and tasks for teachers and staff and links to a wide variety of clips to help prepare students for the exam. There are also many screenshots and images for use. There are many non-standard fonts used in this presentation. This means that after you have downloaded there is a very good chance that your version of the presentation looks a bit strange. If you change fonts to something more standard and of similar sizes will resolve this. All of the links to clips on here were working when originally published but as I do not have control over them they may be removed outside of my control. Many, many thanks and I hope this is of use to you and others.
