The Impact of Cinematography and Editing Options

Explore movie clips from the Movieclips website or the Internet Movie Database IMDB. Choose a clip that you wish to analyze. The clip you choose must

be from a film (preferably from a film with which you are familiar) not a film trailer or a mash-up. Re-watch your chosen movie clip while closely

observing the mise en scene, making sure to analyze the placement and movement of characters and props in the scene as they relate to camera shots,

color, lighting, and other elements of cinematography.

In your discussion, analyze at least three elements of cinematography and editing (e.g., lighting, color, shots, focus, transitions, and types of

cuts) by evaluating the dramatic impact of the scene. Interpret the scene based on your analysis. In your view, what mood, symbolism, or meaning

results from the scenes creative editing and cinematography?

Include the name or partial name of the film clip you analyzed in the Subject line of your discussion. Include the link to your film clip in the body

of your post. Your initial post should be at least 200 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other

scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
