If you've already bought it you can return it though even if it's beyond the 7 day return period if you contact them through chat and mention the false description that says it includes access to multimedia Connect content. It's all right. A little more simplistic than I'd like, but it's meant to be a broad introduction and that's what it is. I understand this is a pretty well-regarded textbook.

Includes great full-color stills from both classics and newer films.

I would say the main difference between this and other editions I also own the 6th edition is that some of the examples in the tenth edition are taken from newer films than those in the sixth edition. I had to buy this book for a class, and I have found it to be exceptionally organized and extremely useful for theory.

If I were to teach a film class tomorrow, this book would be on my syllabus.

Read Read the Book! There is and was so much I did not know about film until this class, and this text book. I love it, I am not taking the class anymore and I did not have to read much out of the book but I read the whole thing. I absolutely recommend keeping if you plan on working in the film industry.

It does blow your mind. This was a requirement for my first film class, but older editions without the online code are cheap enough now that I'd recommend it even for a reference or a summer read for someone who loves movies or film making.

It covers editing, photography, filming, lighting, set, acting, directing, roles on a film set, industry basics Ga naar Amazon. Yet many Hollywood films use multiple protagonists. Desperately Seeking Susan dir. Susan Seidelman, In many classical films, groups of characters interact to create causes and motivations.

Film Art : an Introduction.

Their actions, added together, steadily push the action forward. In Desperately Seeking Susan, however, the two protagonists, the staid New Jersey housewife Roberta and the wild, streetwise Susan, initially seem to have little connection to each other.

The early portion of the plot alternates sequences involving the two women, but, although Roberta reads about Susan in the personals column and becomes fascinated with her, they do not interact directly.

The form of the film depends on devices of parallelism that point up how the women are actually somewhat alike. Day of Wrath dir. Carl Dreyer, Many films pose few difficulties for viewers who like their movies straightforward and easy to digest.

But not all films are so clear in their form and style. In films like Day of Wrath, the questions we ask often do not get definite answers; endings do not tie everything up; film technique does not always function invisibily to advance the narrative.

Comprehensive in scope, and structured to cover the industry as well as aesthetic concerns of film and newer media developments in video, Film Art is set up in six parts with a total of 12 chapters.

An overview of the major film companies and distributors as well as some perspective on the collaborative creativity involved from many diverse areas such as financing, marketing, and art direction, planning, and others, complete this section.

What holds the viewer interested in Comparative Literature or a Post-Modernist evaluation of Film is primarily attended to in Part Two, Film Form, in which the authors discuss the principles a filmmaker uses to construct a film.

There is a breakdown of the structural properties of The Wizard of Oz, as an example, and how the elements used in the movie are designed to create meaning.

The authors talk about the films like Citizen Kane and others that manipulate time duration, and causality to create meaning. My favorite section is Part Three Film Style, because it covers a number of aesthetic elements and gives good examples that exist in current films and examples as well from historical artifacts. The section also discusses camera set ups and how the actor, and virtually everything that the camera sees is part of the mise en scene.

My interest is in putting together a complete visual picture and in Chapters 6 and 7 Bordwell and Thompson cover these elements clearly. This section has the most primal value to the film viewer who ultimately looks to the movie itself when analyzing film. I believe that the visual medium of filmmaking holds the meaning that so much theory attempts to uncover- Bordwell and Thompson seem to be at their strongest when evaluating purely visual value of movies aside from the theory.

The authors talk about how style is plastic to the filmmaker and what it means to the viewer. Again the elusive elements are well highlighted by the authors as they draw on visual examples to make their points.

Part Four, Types of Films, covering Film Genres and Documentary, Experimental, and Animated Films, explicating what Genre is, and how to analyze a genre is a good section for the archivist or one who is interested in classifications. The section covers the Western, Horror, Musical and talks about the ultimate social function of genre.Unlocking Potential At McGraw-Hill, we are passionate about realising the potential of every learner.
