A Taxonomy of Elements of Shot Composition

Allbwn ymchwil: Cyfraniad at gynhadleddPapuradolygiad gan gymheiriaid


Analysing film images is one of the fundamental practices in our attempt to understand the medium. My aim here is to provide an analytical tool for the deconstruction of the film image. I wish to avoid some of the problems that image analysis has had in the past by avoiding any prescriptive interpretations of certain technical devices, nor do I wish to produce a list of meanings for specific cinematographic techniques. My intention is simply to identify aspects of the film image that could hold significance in any analytical approach. Starting with Nilsen’s breakdown of the cinematographer’s approach to constructing an image and Russell’s summary of style markers in film lighting, this article identifies the key components of a film image from a cinematography perspective that could serve a functional purpose in individual films. This article attempts to define a clear, objective taxonomy of elements of shot composition in order to establish a clear methodology for the analysis of a film image.
