Essentially, language looks at the techniques used in a medium (print, television, film, radio, internet,…) to create meaning.
This is Part 1 — UPDATE: Part 2 is further down the page. As you go through the slides, remember the discussions and work we did in class on this, and apply it to PQD (or any other text you read).
UPDATE – New Slides For You
Here are the slides covering camera angles, movement, framing, costume, lighting, and several other important concepts. As you go through them, remember I used a LOT of examples in class to illustrate them. I’ve left some of the grabs from them to remind you, but will be happy to go through them all again after the break.
What I would suggest is that you make sure you have examples of them that you can quote in your answer to Q1 (where relevant!). They are worth mentioning if they have been used by Stephan Elliott to help him convey his message. Anyway, here they are (you do know to click on the picture that follows, don’t you?)
As ever, I am indebted to the work of Messrs Pikavance, Jewell and Instrell for the originals… My revamps are mainly so I can run them on my Mac!
*Version 1a – Added tags/categories!
*Version 2 – Added Slides on camera work.
