Film Study

Week 3 dq 1

How would you film your own personal life story (or an episode that exemplifies your life, that sort of thing) into an approx. 20-minute segment your friends would sit through? And keep in mind that in addition to entertainment, most dramas are produced to convey a film-maker's point-of-view or messages/lessons considered important. So first, consider the story you wish to tell. Stories require conflict, or at least a lot of tension, in order to generate interest. So, first, what's the conflict in your story and how are you plotting it out?

 Also, movies, like plays and TV but unlike books, must use what's called the “objective point-of-view” because they cannot show directly what characters are thinking and feeling. They are limited to showing the exterior of characters in ways that reflect what's going on internally. And they do so in compact units called “scenes” made up of action, mannerisms, and dialogue. So who would be your characters? Why? How would you have them act in what sort of scenes? Why? What is your dialogue trying to accomplish? Why?

And what would you suggest to others about their plots and story-telling elements?

Week 3 dq 2

Coordinating your responses here with DQ 1, consider the mechanics.   What types of lighting, sound, and other technical techniques convey your drama's theme?  What framing and camera angles would you use for each scene? Why? How will they convey emotions? How will they contribute to your drama's success? Similarly, what editing techniques would you use, such as transitions in and between scenes, ways to compress time, means to establish locations, and so forth? Why?

And what would you suggest to others about their filming and editing techniques?

Week 3 dq 3 (settings)

 (DQ 1 covers characters and plotting, and DQ 2 covers mechanics).  So it's only natural that to tell your story, you need to provide the fundamental elements of setting (including but not limited to location, time, era, weather, and buildings).  Sometimes setting is essential to a story/movie, such as in The Perfect Storm, in which the setting is so integral that it could be considered a character unto itself. And there other instances when setting are not so essential.  Once you'd determined the influence setting will have on your story and characters, you can turn to figuring where and why you'd place doors, windows, tables, stolen jewels, corpses, and other props. How would you employ the setting, props, etc. to reveal character information, tone, and mood?  Keep in mind the drama dictum that “if you have a rifle hanging over the fireplace in act one, you'd better well have it used by the end of act three.” In other words, everything has a purpose and you need to know what it is and how and why you'll implement it in your film. 

And as with the other two DQs, what would you suggest to others about their plots and story-telling elements?
