WHY?


Technique analysis

WHY?

To make meaning


Visible and invisible3

Visible and Invisible

People and places which are visible and prioritised by the composer. All the focus is on them. They are important.


Visible and invisible4

Visible and Invisible

What other people, places and objects are seen and what other people, places and objects are unseen?


Techniques7

Techniques

Another way to talk about meaning making…

Visual and Written…


Visual and written

Visual and Written

Visual elements are those things that you see…

Body language, lighting, facial expressions (indicated by stage directions) and images (pictures put up on the screen)


Visual and written1

Visual and Written

But being able to see things is does not tell you the whole story. To make sense of what is going on, you need to recognise how important the things that you read/ hear are (music, quotes etc)


Visual and written2

Visual and Written

The only way to talk about non visual elements in DistinctivelyVisual is by talking about how they reinforce or addmeaning to the visual elements.
