Film | English homework help


In Chapter 6 you learned about the properties of the shot and how the camera is used meaningfully in film storytelling.

For a narrative film, the cinematography typically goes far beyond objectively capturing images in a random or offhand manner. There are many choices that the director of photography must make and that the camera operator(s) and other crew must execute in order to realize the director’s vision for the film.

Much of the crew, including the director, Sergio Leone, were Italian.The director of photography was Tonino Delli Colli.)

B) Explain how the film’s cinematography in the sequence(s) helps create meaning, mood, and/or gives us information.
