However, this may have been done because the actors have to compensate for the fact that there is no sound in the film. But as we discussed in class, acting styles have changed over time and this may be why I dislike the acting in this film. But because I find the score in the film good at expressing the emotions of characters and setting the tone of the movie, I do not think that the way the actors act is necessary. While I do believe that the score did a good job at reflecting the emotions of actors and the overall tone of the film, in general I find the score to be repetitive. There are a couple of songs that are repeated throughout the film, which may be viewed as a musical motif but to me the use of the same songs over and over again becomes
Sound is a very important part of a movie as it can set the mood in the situation; Tim Burton used diegetic sounds perfectly in Charlie in the Chocolate Factory to set that dark eerie mood. At the beginning of the movie where you see all the machines that are used to make chocolate, a the machines are working it is playing a low pitched song while the viewer hears the machines press down on the chocolate to mold the chocolate. The sounds the machines make combined with the music makes the scene’s mood a lot less more cheery like yeah chocolate but also gave an mysterious feel about it. Another example is when the group is greeted by wax puppets singing an upbeat song,
For instance in "The Nightmare Before Christmas" there is a fine example of music/ sound affecting the mood when comparing the two towns (Christmas and Halloween). Both of the towns music represents the characters and the ideals that each town is set on. In Halloween town the music is dark, mysterious and contains snake charmer melodies showing that it is based on being scary and mysterious just like Halloween. The opposite of this is in Christmas town where the neighborhoods are filled with cheerful, upbeat, repetitive music which convey the happiness of Christmas and the townspeople in general. Music/Sound also has a major influence in "Edward Scissorhands". For instance in the segment of the movie where Edward has a flashback and the invention room is being showed you can hear the rhythmic thump to the machinery making cookies, this sound conveys to the audience a mysteriousness of the factory and the robots and questions what this has to do with Edward. In addition to this there is also a scene when Kim goes outside to see what Edward is doing and encounters him making snow from ice sculpture. She has never seen snow so when this interaction happens there is a melodic, angel music being placed with this scene. However when she ventures to close to Edward he accidentally slice her face
The image is brighter and sharper in the film. The contrast of the film really affects the mood. Since the contrast is so bright the viewer is bound to stay focused and aware because everything is so catchy and noticeable. Also, the exposure changes throughout the film. At the very beginning the film starts in black and white and changed to color as the story progressed. The filmmaker uses a lot of Long Takes, each shot of Dorothy meeting someone new is pretty lengthy.
Monuments Men by Robert M. Edsel is the story of the heroes of the MFAA (Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives department) during World War II. The MFAA was established in 1943, and the members of this department traveled across the front lines finding, saving, and preserving art and other artifacts of cultural significance. The story focuses on ten main characters who were apart of the MFAA: Maj. Ronald Edmund Balfour, Pvt. Harry Ettlinger, Cpt. Walker Hancock, Cpt. Walter “Hutch” Huchthausen, Jacques Jaujard (director of French National Museums), Pfc. Lincoln Kirstein, Cpt. Robert Posey, 2Lt. James J. Rorimer, Lt. George Stout, and French spy Rose Valland. The book recounts the true story of their journey in the European Theater on the greatest treasure hunt in history.
World War II-one of the most devastating events in history that will always be remembered whether by textbooks, personal accounts, or merely just stories about how one man could have done the impossible: conquered the world. As students today and future generations learn about the War, they are exposed to the battles, leaders, political parties, heroes, and turmoil of this period; however, important events that often were overshadowed are slowly becoming forgotten and neglected. Robert Edsel, in his book The Monuments Men, tells the story of the “greatest treasure hunt in history” and the race to sa
The movie Edward Scissorhands, had varieties of music, that all benefited in some way towards Tim Burton’s specific style. In the opening credits of the movie, he used cheery but spooky music to help create the mood for the movie. This mood helped later when Peg was visiting the castle for the first time, the music was the same as the opening credits helping create the effect of the the happy/spooky feeling. Tim Burton uses this effect again in the movie Corpse Bride. When Victor was walking through the forest the music was, again, happy/spooky, and then began to turn happy the further he walked in. As he said his vows the music turned light, but when he placed the ring on the tree hand, the music turned dark almost instantly. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory had a similar approach, but still Tim Burton’s style. When Charlie found the Golden Ticket in the candy store the music was light and happy. However, at the end of the factory tour when Charlie won Willie Wonka’s factory, and he turned it down, the music was sad and depressing, helping create the effect of Wonka’s depression. Along with Lighting and music, Camera Angles help Tim Burton with his movie
For example, the music is sudden and ominous at the beginning to help show the excitement of what’s happening. Whenever something sad happens, the music turns very sad, like when Candy’s dog is shot and when Lennie is killed. At some points, the sound helps show suspense in the movie, like before Candy’s dog is shot there isn’t much music. However, when George talks to Lennie about the ranch, and Lennie does too, the music turns very happy and uplifting to show the viewer their joy.
The music that tim burton uses in most of his films are alway dark and mysterious also sad.For example in the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory there a scene where willy wonka shut down the factory where the music was happy to depressing.Also during the corpse bride when the character Victor Van Dort first encountered
Sometimes after a tragedy, only a distinguished group of people are recognized for their accomplishments. This film of “The Monuments Men” made it possible for us to appreciate not just soldiers serving in our war but others who created an impact as well. Without these courageous, honorable, and dignified individuals we would never see the exquisite artwork that has been
Well, there is one scene in particular that changes the mood completely due to the music rhythm and that one scene is when butch and sundance kid are getting chased in Bolivia and the music in the background is so like hyped up. It’s a song that you’d typically hear in a cartoon, I think it made the scene funny and unique. Reason behind that is because think about, they’re getting chased and like the music in the background should be like dramatic, the song they used was just funny. Another scene is when sundance kid and that girl rode the bicycle and then that happy music was playing, if they were just laughing and like talking it would’ve been boring. That happy rhythm changes the mood and puts you in a happy place, makes you think wow that’s
The problems that are entangled in the film's root aren't so prevalent and can easily be ignored, but the film feels a tad overlong in what it is trying to accomplish. Granted, somewhat interesting story underpinned by stellar performances while witty, incisive banter abounds in among frames, but the arduousness has its say later-on. I feel what's so good about this film lies in the fact that it's simply not trying to cross the line and re-invent the wheel, but merely give the viewer a comfortable and darkly comical short-of-two-hours-time-frame; and unsurprisingly succeeds because it has those bits on a string. It's not rousing by any means, and neither is it contemplative or despondent because of its affairs - it could have well been that - but instead prances in uncanny valley territory due to its bravura in making the most of comicality, however glum or repulsive it might
Sound in a scene can communicate meaning and give life to a moving image. As I created the music for the scene I had certain intentions as a director and composer which required the construction of a multifaceted soundtrack to convey the narrative of the scene. The music is chosen and composed to elicit emotional response and ways in which it can convey the dramatic intentions of the film narrative. As music can convey the scope of a film, I used music in my scene to show it as an epic drama. I tried to use sound in my scene is such a way so as to not
Lighting gives you an idea of what is real and what is only a fantasy. Lighting is crucial to indicate the mood of a movie. High-key lighting shows cheer and happiness. On the other hand, Burton displays sinister and spooky images with low-key lighting. Mr.
There are types of music that you can use in a movie scene. Some different genres can be used in different ways. However, there are many types that can be used for only one type of scene. For example, if you wanted to intensify a scary scene, it would not make that much sense if you put a happy melody. You could call these types of music as ‘music as the background’. Today, we are going to look at two different types of Music as the Background. One type is called ‘Spaghetti Western’ and the other type is called ‘Silent Movie’. These two types are seen in Charlie Chaplin’s ‘Modern Times’ and the melody created by Ennio Moriccone in ‘Once upon a Time in the West’. First we will
