FLUCTUATIONS BETWEEN NEW HOLLYWOOD STYLE AND CLASSICAL HOLLYWOOD STYLE OF FILM MAKING By Gruff Pugh and Joe Healey
STRUCTURE OF CLASSIC NARRATIVE The Three act structure Act 1 (Setup) used as an introduction to main characters Act 2 (The Development) the plot becomes more complicated Act 2 often includes a false resolution. Cause-Effect Relationship used to propel the characters along the story Act 3 (The Resolution) or the climax this is the final segment showing the ending and with the classic narrative the hero would win
BREAKING THE NARRATIVE Citizen Kane uses non linear narrative to break the current system
BREAKING THIS Orson Welles has lead other film makers to follow his lead
HOW IT WAS BROKEN Orson Welles and Herman J. Mankiewicz wrote Citizen Kane broke normal narrative by making it un-linear by having it as a look into someone's life and not just having the camera follow someone's life.
CLASSICAL HOLLYWOOD STYLE Camera at distance Long shot Static camera Melodramatic acting style (a bit of overacting) A lot of eye level shots
BREAKING THIS Citizen Kane broke allot of these rules using close shots more subtle acting Wide angle lens Allot of focus on whole screen allowing background To be seen
BREAKING THIS Citizen Kane breaking this showed other modern movie makers to do the same and follow Orson Welles lead
LIGHTING Classic Hollywood uses lighting to make the actors look as good as possible.
LIGHTING New Hollywood still tries to make the actors look as good as possible but it also uses lighting for affect to the story and the character's personality and the situation over making them look nice.
EDITING Classic Hollywood uses linear editing style making it simple and easier to follow what is happening. This is still used allot today in certain films like Boyhood
EDITING There have been changes to how films are edited over the years no with different styles of editing to create different films like Christopher Nolan’s non linear film inception
180 DEGREE RULE The 180º rule is used so as to not confuse audience members. The 180 degree rule put the two actors on one side of an imaginary line, so that the positioning of the actors, and direction of them is simpler to follow.
