    When reading the article, “How to Read a Movie” by Roger Elbert, I didn’t realize how many creative aspects are truly placed to make the audience feel a certain way. The producers use lighting, color, and dialogue to display emotions throughout a piece. Again, I know I am talking about emotions in another one of my posts, but it is so TRUE!    I took 3 scenes off of the movie Encanto and talked about them, but those are just three small moments. I have watched this movie about 20 times. Each time I find something new that intrigues me, but when I watched it through this time I recognized color changes in scenes, to display how happy or sad someone was. Disney movies are of course colorful, but they always somehow manage to make us feel certain emotions. That is why I chose Encanto. https://youtu.be/X3AAGIvStac

    After reading Roger Ebert’s article titled “How to read a movie,” I have learned some new ideas about how movies are edited to emphasize specific emotions and add overall tension to a scene. In particular, the part that he discussed that stood out to me the most was about where the actor is placed in a scene. “In simplistic terms: Right is more positive, left more negative.” This applies to the emotions such as happy or mad, but it can also be used to represent other more figurative ideas such as being in the future or the past, depending on…

    As someone who doesn’t watch much television and has difficulty remembering scenes from films, I wasn’t sure where I wanted to take this assignment. I debated taking a look at the beautiful bits of cinematography within the new Spider-Man film, though I knew I would struggle to find clips for

    I think I made this assignment a lot harder than it needed to be. Honestly after watching this clip like 10 times, I could really see the different aspects they used. They really utilized the camera in this scene. They angle the camera higher...

    So here is my first and probably only attempt at a video essay. I really enjoyed making this, not only because I love editing videos, but because this scene left a very big impact on me, and at the time, I didn’t know why. After this week’s readings and watchings, I was able to look at […]
