2. Each person in your group will have chosen a 'sub-element' of mise-en-scene to analyse when watching the clip
3. watch the first 6 mins of the clip and make notes on your sub-element ONLY
4. Using the grid, feedback your answers to the group and take notes from each group member so that you have a completed analysis grid
5. We will now anlayse the remaining 10 mins of the clip. Continue to make notes for your focus only. You might notice some differences in the use of mise-en-scene...
6. now exchange your analysis notes with your group
Now, let's turn our analysis in to a written document...
TASK:
Writing your response on the handout provided, you have 15 mins to answer the question:
How is meaning created through the use of
mise-en-scene in Life on Mars?

An Intro to Editing

cuts
transitions
motion/pace
special effects
CGI
Analysis of editing in Sherlock
TASK
You are going to watch 2 clips from Sherlock (both can be found on the TV drama blog).

In both clips the editing is important as it tells us about the characters and developments in the plot.

1 Watch clip 1 and make notes on handout 1
2. watch clip 2 and make notes on handout 2
3. compare your answers with the answer sheet handout
HOMEWORK
Re-watch the Sherlock clips and, reflecting back on your notes from the previous task and using the terminology handout from last week, write an answer to the question:
What does the editing reveal about the character of Sherlock Holmes?
to hand in for next week's lesson
Why is editing important when analysing TV drama
Editing is important because it can...
1. take us to and from
different locations
2. create tension by
changing pace
3. influence us to like / dislike certain characters by the amount of
screen time
given to each character
4.
manipulate the time
experienced by the characters, viewers and show us different things happening simultaneously in different places
5. offer us
clues
about characters or the
plot development
