Presentation Transcript

  1. Framing

  2. What is framing? • How you arrange the stage of a performance and how specific actors are situated in the play • 3 ways to frame a scene • Close-up • foreground/background positioning • Height levels

  3. Close-up • Close view of an individual character • Used usually for monologues or when characters are speaking to themselves

  4. Foreground • The part of the scene that is nearest the viewers

  5. Background • The part of the scene that is farthest from the viewer

  6. Height Levels • The variation of who is standing or sitting and where characters are physically on the stage

  7. Effects of Framing • Not only does framing a scene help show where people should stand in a scene, but it also shows who is in power. • Can also show how important a piece of dialogue is to the play.

  8. Who is in power in these scenes?

  9. Storyboard • In groups of 3-4 decide which character holds the power in the exchange of dialogue, Cassius, Brutus, or Caesar. • Create a storyboard of the scene (1.2.30-224) that shows who has the power through framing. • Should be 2 sided and have 4 drawings for each page • Stick figures are ok, just make sure to label characters • Indicate where in the text the frame would change by writing line of dialogue below the frame.
