Answer the following questions in a minimum of 2 full pages (maximum of 5) using complete sentences in essay form. Give explanations WITH EXAMPLES to help describe all details.
DO NOT PROVIDE A SUMMARY OF THE STORY, WE’VE ALREADY SEEN IT. DO NOT REVIEW THE FILM. Time spent summarizing the plot of the movie will not help your grade. Instead, please respond to ALL the following questions in the form of an essay. (A simple way to do this is to make each set of questions, below, its own paragraph. Please don’t include the question numbers in your paper.)
1. How does the editing contribute to this film? Does this film mostly use continuity editing, discontinuity editing or a mixture of both? Is the editing mainly seamless and nearly unnoticeable, or does it call attention to itself? Why do you think the filmmakers made these choices? Give examples of specific editing techniques the filmmakers chose.
2. Select a pivotal scene and identify those moments when the sound creates emphasis by accentuating and strengthening the visual image. What are the specific sources of sound in that scene? What types of sounds that are used in the scene? Does this film use silence expressively?
3. In the film overall, how is music used? Is it used in a dominate way to manipulate the audience’s emotions, or is it more subtle or non-existent? Does the use of music in this film seem appropriate to the story? Give a specific example of how music was used in the film.
