History of Cinema

When we talk about genre in the film media, we are referring to stable thematic categories, subjected to an encoding that respect the filmmakers and the viewers know. They are:
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
It all started in France in 1895 with films like this from the pioneering Lumiere Brothers
CINEMA IS HERE TO STAY
By the 1920s almost all of the main types of film had been invented - comedies, horror, epics, action films, westerns , dramas and romances with heroes like this
And sci-fi fantasies with special effects like this 1902 film from french pioneer George Melies
In 1927 a singer called Al Jolson put on black face paint (these were unenlightened times) to star in the first ever 'talkie' film and sing this song
All American films have sound by 1929!
THE GOLDEN AGE
The all-conquering HOLLYWOOD took over the world throughout the 1930s and 40s. Films - often made by European immigrant directors - got BIGGER, LOUDER, MORE STAR STUDDIED as millions flocked into the magnificent PICTURE PALACES.
In 1947 only 12 per cent of American films in colour by 1954
50 per cent in colour
HOW IT ALL CHANGED
Cinema was doing great but then along came this...
THE FIGHT BACK
Films got BIGGER, LOUDER and much, much WIDER
In order to discuss Cinema, we must become familiar with the specialized language used in Film Studies.
Editing: The joining together of clips of film into a single filmstrip. The cut is a simple edit but there are many other possible ways to transition from one shot to another.
Flashback/Flashforward: A jump backwards or forwards in time. With the use of flashback / flashforward the order of events in the plot no longer matches the order of events in the story.
Focus refers to the degree to which light rays pass through the lens and reconverge on a frame of the film negative, creating sharp outlines and distinct textures that match the original object.
This optical property of the cinema creates variations in
depth of field
, and techniques such as
Shallow focus is a function of a narrow depth of field and it implies that only one plane of the frame will remain sharp and clear (usually the foreground).
Deep focus, which requires a small aperture and lots of light, means that the foreground, middleground and background of the frame remain in focus.
Genres: Types of film recognized by audiences and/or producers.
These types are distinguished by narrative or stylistic conventions.
Mis-en-Scene: All the things that are "put in the scene": the setting, the decor, the lighting, the costumes, the performance etc. Narrative films often manipulate the elements of mise-en-scene, such as decor, costume, and acting to intensify or undermine the ostensible significance of a particular scene.
Scene/ Sequence: A segment of a narrative film that usually takes place in a single time and place, often with the same characters. Sometimes a single scene may contain two lines of action, occurring in different spaces or even different times, that are related by means of crosscutting.
The latter term can also refer to a longer segment of film that does not obey the spatial and temporal unities of a single scene. For example, a montage sequence that shows in a few shots a process that occurs over a period of time.
Shot: A single stream of images, uninterrupted by editing. The shot can use a static or a mobile framing, a standard or a non-standard frame rate, but it must be continuous. With the use of computer graphics and sequences built-up from a series of still frames, the boundaries of the shot are increasingly being challenged.
Filmmakers can change the focus of the lens to a subject in the background from the foreground or vice vera. This can be used to shift the audience’s attention or to point out a significant relationship between the two subjects.
The zoom shot occurs when a filmmaker changes the focal length of the lens in the middle of a shot. We appear to get closer or further away from the subject when this technique is used.
The standard rate for a film is 24 frames per second. If more frames are added to this second the film will seem to slow down. The film will speed up if there are less than 24 frames per second.
Extreme Long Shot
An extreme long shot is when the scale of what is being seen is tiny.
Medium Close Up
A medium close-up is when what is being viewed is large and takes up most of the screen.
A close-up is when what is being viewed is quite large and takes up the entire screen, such as a person’s head.
Extreme Close Up
An extreme close-up is when what is being viewed is very large; usually, this is a part of someone’s face.
A long shot is when the scale of what is being seen is small. In this sequence from Kathryn Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker (2008), Sergeant Thompson (Guy Pearce) takes up most of the screen when upright, and then less when he is knocked down due to the explosion.
Medium Long Shot
A medium long shot is when what is being viewed takes up almost the entire height of the screen.
