Literary
Literary

Frequently the reasons we like any given film can be found at this level. We like the story, the genre, the actors and the directors!

At this level, we look at the setting and how it impacts the character, theme, and plot. We are also likely to identify symbols when reading a film this way. The symbols may show up as a visual object, a dialogue reference, a literal meaning, or a metaphorical meaning.


Dramatic
Dramatic

When we read a film dramatically, we look at the dialogue (what the actors say and how they say it) and the costumes and make-up. Is it realistic, does it fit the time period in which the story is set? If so, we can get lost in the film; it’s believable!

Hand coloring


In order to modernize or restore films, black and white films-like Casablanca-were hand colored.

“I think it’s terrible. It’s a shame that they’re doing it….I think it’s an insult to the people who did the movies in black-and-white….In black-and-white, you had to mold not only the people’s faces but also the back-

ground and everything, to give it depth and to

make it interesting to look at…. “

James Stewart (June 1986)

Simply defined, Technicolor is the method of making movies in color. Films sensitive to different primary colors are exposed simultaneously and are later superimposed to produce the full-color print.

This is really fun! The Day for Night filter is a technique used to simulate a night scene-- to create the illusion of darkness or moonlight. So, the film can be shot during the day but made to look like night.


2) Framing of the shot: How the object will be positioned within the shot, or how much of the frame of the movie screen the object will occupy. The video clip will show you some examples of this.


Directors also use the framing and shots to show the audience what they want them to see. There are many different kinds of shots directors can use to accomplish this, but the following examples will focus on the three most common:
