Storyboard "There was not much written on the chase in the script. We had one page written on the sequence, but I wanted it to be seven to ten pages long. I wanted it to be the centerpiece of the movie. So rather than writing it, I sat down with my two sketch artists, David Jonas and Ed Verreaux and I just sort of made the whole chase up on paper from frame 1 to frame 405. - Steven Spielberg, on Raiders of the Lost Ark
Mise-en-Scene Technically means “in the frame.” It is a way to describe what the director has chosen to place in his/her frame. It includes actor’s positions, props, lighting, setting, and costumes.
In-between = Term + Term Medium Close-Up –The shot is somewhere between the two; part close-up and part medium shot Medium Long Shot –The shot is somewhere between a medium shot and a long shot. –The viewer can see most of the body
Low Angle Shot Also known as LA The camera looks up at what is being photographed, making the subject look larger than normal Has the intended effect of making the character seem strong, powerful, and/or threatening.
High Angle Shot Also known as HA The camera looks down at what is being photographed, making the subject look smaller than normal. Has the intended effect of making the character seem weak, powerless, and/or trapped.
Camera Movement Zoom Pan Tilt Dolly/Tracking Boom/Crane
Zoom The camera does not move, rather the lens is manipulated to make an object seem to move closer or farther away from the camera. Zooming in to a character is often used to highlight a personal or revealing moment. Zooming away from a character is used to separate the character from the viewer.
Sound Diegetic sound –Sound that can be heard by the characters within the film –Ex: gunshot, phone ringing, car engine racing Non-diegetic sound –Sound that cannot be heard by the characters in the film. Used to elicit a reaction by the audience. –Ex: soundtrack, suspenseful music, narration
Editing Techniques Cut Dissolve Fade Out/Fade In Wipe Two-shot (shot/reverse) Eye-line match Point of view
Cut A cut is the most common type of transition One shot ends and is instantaneously replaced with another shot There are no other editing effects between the two shots
