Instructions

Part I: Beginning to Analyze Film

To compete Part I, choose a movie you have viewed in the past (this does not have to be from the University of Phoenix: How Films Communicate Film List ). Review the following example in the table and then complete your information by inserting the title of your movie and completing the entries for time and place, costume, and set design, writing in complete sentences.

Movie
Time and Place
Costume
Set Design
Describe the atmosphere created by the combination of film elements and how they contributed to your liking or disliking of the movie. Example Movie

Alien, 1979

Example Entry

The movie is set in the far-off future. The movie takes place in space on board a spaceship and some action occurs on the surface of a planet. Example Entry

The characters often appear in grubby, casual clothing and what appear to be worn-out uniforms. Also, they appear in space suits when they journey to the planet. Example Entry

The sets looks very high-tech and run-down at the same time. In some areas there are very streamlined and modern-looking set pieces, and in other areas pipes or tubing can be seen running along the walls. Example Entry

The overall atmosphere is gritty and realistic creating the sense that this is a lived-in world. The atmosphere of the planet they visit is creepy because the shapes of the set seems alive. The characters are all acting realistically, especially the character of Lambert who is terrified. The characters fit into this world well, looking sweaty and with no visible make-up. The elements combined contributed to my enjoyment by making the action feel like it was really happening. Also, the alien design was nightmarish. <Title of your movie viewed in the past and the year it was released>

Question
Your Response
Identify aspects of cinematography in your selected film. Discuss them in terms of how they affected your viewing experience; in other words, did the art of cinematography add value to your experience? If so, how? If not, why not? I think the art of cinematography is what made the movie realistic and fun to watch. Technically, I think this was one of the best film at that time and still to this day. This film cinematography is moody, dark, and often dazzling; this is not a bright, perky Disney-ish looking feature. The sail of the good guy ship look clean and bright , a gorgeous contrast with the impossibly vivid blue sky and the sea.

Identify aspects of sound in your selected film. Discuss them in terms of how they affected your viewing experience; in other words, did the art of sound effects add value to your experience? If so, how? If not, why not?

The sound of the film is what made u really pay attention. All the melody, and simple harmony took u on the ship and made u feel like u was on the ocean. The sound is what made u feel like u was in the Caribbean. Identify the type of music in your selected film. Discuss them in terms of how it affected your viewing experience; in other words, did the score or songs add value to your experience? If so, how? If not, why not?

The music in the film was mostly orchestrated and it brought the movie from the your TV into your living room. It was mostly made up of melody, simple harmony, and rhythmic figures in the low brass and low strings. One of the defining characteristics of the score’s sound is the use of horn for the melody.

Identify the types of editing in your selected film. Discuss them in terms of how it affected your viewing experience; in other words, did the different types of shots and framing add value to your experience? If so, how? If not, why not?
