Language uses words to communicate.
Special Effects
-an unusual image or sound in a movie, created artificially using various technical methods.
Montage
Scenes whose emotional impact and visual design are achieved through the editing together of many brief shots.

A quick succession of images or impressions used to express an idea, often one not indicated by the individual shots themselves.

-the process by which the editor combines and coordinates individual shots into a cinematic whole; the basic creative force of cinema.

Screenplay
-the written form of a movie that also includes instructions on how it is to be acted and filmed: the script for a movie.

Mise en scene
A theoretical term coming from the French, meaning, more or less, "staging." In general it concerns everything within a shot as opposed to the editing of shots; includes camera movement, set design, props, direction of the actors, composition of formal elements within the frame, lighting, and so on.
Voice Over
-the voice of a narrator is heard, although the character speaking is usually not presented visually. If the character is visually present, there is no lip movement, a convention indicating that we are hearing the character's thoughts.
