What Makes a Film a Classic.

What Makes a Film a Classic.

A 10 slide presentation. I don’t know about you but I get really peeved when people use the word ‘classic’ as a synonym for ‘old’ or ‘dull.’ People arguing against the inclusion of classic literature in English courses invariably infer that if a text is a classic then it is old and irrelevant. This is simply not true of course. It is not even logical. After all we can talk about ‘classic’ cars and ‘classic’ fashion, none of which is either old or boring. We also talk about classic films and film has not been around for a particularly long time. So what makes a film a classic? What are the elements that we look for when we are deciding whether a film, or any work really, can be added to the classic cannon?

Literary terms relating to Film.

Literary terms relating to Film.

A 10 slide presentation. It is important that we use the correct terminology when we talk about film, also that students understand how terminology or theories can cross mediums. These terms are not unique to film, indeed we know them from written texts as well. However by remembering them and exploring how they relate to film we get a firmer understanding that film, like novels, plays, poetry etc, are texts which can be read and out of which we can make meaning.

How Shot Types work in Film

How Shot Types work in Film

An 18 slide presentation. We need to approach film as a medium in itself with its own language, signifiers and methods. The most important signifiers are the types of shots the filmmaker chooses to employ. Shot types are to filmmakers what rhyming patterns are to poets. The building blocks which give the structure shape. Learning to recognise shot type and function will assist students in applying critical thinking to the study of film and make them more visually literate.

What is Mise En Scene?

What is Mise En Scene?

A 14 slide presentation. Mise-en-scene deals with the choices that the filmmaker has made in constructing what the viewer sees. It includes all the little things that make up a scene. By close reading of mise-en-scene the viewer begins to comprehend how small, unremarkable aspects of a film can affect our understanding. Aspects include lighting, acting, colour, make-up and costumes.
