Fadi George Dr. Hosam Elouan Presented to : Ridley Scott Sir Ridley Scott (born 30 November 1937) is an English film director and producer known for his stylish visuals and an obsession for detail.His films include The Duellists (1977), Alien (1979), Blade Runner (1982), Legend (1985), Thelma & Louise (1991), Gladiator (2000), Black Hawk Down (2001), Hannibal (2001), Kingdom of Heaven (2005), American Gangster (2007), Body of Lies (2008), and Robin Hood (2010). Scott favors extensive use of the two-camera 'V' set-up, thus enabling his actors to play more fluidly off one another without being constantly interrupted by calls to "Cut!".
Frequently uses music by Hans Zimmer.
Usually incorporates snapshot photography into edited sequences (A Good Year (2006)).
Usually casts / works with actors who have a strong theatre background and are graduates of drama school. He likes to be personally involved with the casting of his movies as well.
He is the father of "director's cut" (Alien (1979), Blade Runner (1982), Gladiator (2000)).
Does not use a lot of wide lenses; tends towards longer focal lengths.
He uses Sweeping landscapes/backdrops - at times, with close-up of a character's face in foreground - as shown in Gladiator (2000) and Kingdom of Heaven (2005). Plot Maximus is a powerful Roman general, loved by the people and the aging Emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Before his death, the Emperor chooses Maximus to be his heir over his own son, Commodus, and a power struggle leaves Maximus and his family condemned to death. The powerful general is unable to save his family, and his loss of will allows him to get captured and put into the Gladiator games until he dies. The only desire that fuels him now is the chance to rise to the top so that he will be able to look into the eyes of the man who will feel his revenge Cinematography Mise en Scene Editing Sound In the battle of Carthage scene,it is shown how cinematography is used in capturing the dynamic nature of this scene The director mastered the shot movement in this scene, where he succeeded in filming the fast pace of this scene. In this scene, it is shown how the director
Ridley Scott uses shallow focus to concentrate
on Russel Crow by bluring the background. This makes Russel Crow the center of attention of
the audience This is presented as follows In this scene, Ridley scott uses a low angle shot when the gladiator first enters the arena This adds power and pride and glorifies maximus, and portrays him as a powerful gladiator This is presented as follows In this shot, we see how the high angle shot depicts the helpless state that russel crow is in after being chained by the emperor's army. In this scene, a wide long shot is used to show the large amount of spectators found in the colleseum during the gladiator games. In this scene, Maximus reaches his home but is too late to save his family. He discover the charred and crucified bodies of his wife and son in the smouldering ruins of his villa. Death by Crucifixion is a terrible and dishonorable way to die. Tortured by these thoughts Maximus collapses.The props in this movie and the set created an excellent mise en scene as shown in the following video. The death scene of the warriors family was the most intense and difficult for the audience due to that the sound was effectively strong and had power to give the audience the strong feeling of sadness and sympathy towards the warrior whom did not do any guilt. The soundtracks in general contain a series of heroic anthems, combined with many different sounds that strengthens the tension of the movie and grabs the listeners emotion. In the Gladiator Hans Zimmer has successfully use the sound to grab the attention of the audience, having the sound merging efficiently with the movie, resulting in realistic scenes. The movie contains different scenes with different soundtracks, trying to approach the audience with different feelings using different soundtracks. Zimmer used strong soundtracks for example in the battle which is one of the most impressive and attractive scenes within the whole movie, due to its good quality of acting and sound, where the sound of every detail within the battle is obvious and clear, such as the horses footsteps, the swords contact together, the sound of the warriors is also clear as they talk as the battle continues, which shows that Zimmer did a good job to make the sound stand out, even in the most important and difficult part of the whole movie. Thank You The use of good editing was obvious in the movie. Where in several scenes the editor succeeded in collecting different shots to convey a certain meaning. For example in the end of the movie, it is shown that the gladiator finally reunites with his family after avenging them and dying
However, the editing disrupted the continuity of the shots in the battle of carthage scene, despite the good movement of the filming shot. The scene somehow appeared to be disconnected Lighting The use of lighting in two seperate scenes showed the difference between Maximus and Commodus, although both scenes were taken in the same place yet the lighting when Maximus was conversing with the emperor was bright and showed that he was good. On the other hand, when Commodus was conversing with the emperor we begin to see evil arising in young commodus as he talk to his father. The lighting in this scene is very dark and low, which gives ccommodus a very evil look.
