MISE EN SCENE
So this week, you are reading about mise-en-scene, an extremely important aspect of visual style in cinema. Later in the next assginment, we will discuss it in relation to Do the Right Thing, but I’d like to start out by talking about it in relation to the films we have already watched: Groundhog Day, Citizen Kane, and Jojo Rabbit. right now I want to focus on the components of mise-en-scene:
* Costumes & Makeup
* Staging & Performance
Pick one scene from one of the films we’ve already discussed and start us off discussing one or more components of mise-en-scene in that particular scene. Although you’ll be discussing a particular scene, you can also look at it in relation to the whole film. For example, is the lighting different in this particular scene than it is generally in the film? That might be important. Or is the character’s costume different now than in earlier scenes, etc.
