Frame by Frame
Choose one of the following video clips for the discussion:
- A beautiful mind(2001)
Considering one film is from 1960 and the other produced in 2001, there are clearly differences in what the filmmakers were able to do. Describe the style of editing that is used in the film clip you chose. What types of shots are used? What types of visual transitions are used between shots? Does this scene follow continuity editing or does it work in a different style? How does this affect the audience’s understanding of the scene? Be sure to watch the entire scene closely to see the scene as a whole.
