textual analysis

textual analysis of breaking down a text into its various elements and studing them to analyse how the meaning is created. When analysing moving image media (such as film or television) we must examine the following areas:
-Camera work(shots,angles,movements)
-Editing (how shots have been put together)
-Sound (both digetic and non-degtic)
-Special effects(if there are any)
-Mise-en-scene(costume,make-up,facical expressions,props, settings,performance)

Camera movements

Crab-ther camera moves sideways
Side-the camera stays in the same place but pivots left or right
Steadicam-strapped-to a person
Hand held camera-hand-held


Low-camera looking up at subject, making it look bigger
Canted-camera is tilted to make the subject look tilted
High-camera is looking down on subject to make it look smaller
Worms eye-extreme low angle,camera looking up,very low
Eye level- camera pointed exactly at subject
Birds eye/arieal-extreme high angle camera, or high angle very low looking up
