Transcript of Mise-en-scene
Telling the story with images
First used by critics in Les Cahiers du Cinéma, an influential French film journal, in the 1950s, mise en scène focuses on what can be seen in the picture.
Colour (present in both production design and lighting)
Actors’ performance (including casting and make up) and movement (blocking)
Watch the following sequence and write down a short answer to the following:
• How does the sequence create meaning through mise-en-scene?
Discuss in groups before composing your video/ audio/ written response on your Google Drive
MISE-EN-SCENE is all about the way a story is communicated to the audience using the following 4 elements...
Framing including position; depth of field; aspect ratio; height and angle (but not movement)
In teams of 3 you are to construct a TV Title sequence for a new show that includes elements of mise-en-scene to portray one of the following narratives:
A stressed worker is being pushed to the edge by the Boss
An undercover student tries to infiltrate the drugs gang that has taken over the college
A cool, detached and isolated student plans his move against the person who stole his lover
Remember to use as much Colour, Production Design, Actors, Lighting, Location, and Framing as possible to tell your story.
Understand and analyse the key media term 'mise-en-scene'
In groups, created a mise-en-scene for a given scenario
A lighting technique that uses both light and dark on the face of the subject
Sometimes used to suggest duality/ two sides to a character (e.g. Film Noir)
Remember to think carefully about your location when constructing the mise-en-scene for your Music Video
