Todays Agenda Housekeeping: www.thetvdoctor.blogspot.com Have you chosen your text? Mise-en-scene (elements prepared before recording) Videography (elements used during recording) Sound, Style, and Editing (elements used after recording) Most of my examples tonight will contain multiple aesthetic elements. How many can you identify?
Put in the scene A film term borrowed from theater
Mise-en-scene: Set Design Studio vs. Location No ceilings Character entrance and exit
Sound, style, and editing Point of view Cut Fade, Wipe, Dissolve…but usually Cut How long it takes versus how long it feels Continuity Violating our expectations makes us tense or suspicious, or we find it humorous
