An Investigation Into The Technology And Techniques Available In Film And Presentation Production.

1124 words - 4 pages

TechnologySound is used in nearly all of the modern day films, for music and dialogue. The use of the sound has many advantages. The Diegetic sound is a sound that comes from a visual source in the screen. Like a radio or a T.V to make t he audience aware where the sound is coming from. The Non-diegetic sounds you cannot see, but they help to create an atmosphere and mood. Now days video and sound is recorded together already synchronised, which saves a lot of time for the Video Directors.The quality of vision has evolved to a very high standard. Now days we have our movies in digital format where as before they were saved in 50ft reels. Before the 1920’s silent films were filmed at slower speeds. Now days the film has to be shown in its original speed, otherwise the film will be difficult to view and jerky.Inter-titles were used to dictate the speech and the dialogue during the films when sound was not used in the films. Silent films had no sound for dialogue. Onscreen inter-titles had to be used to narrate the key points in the story. Also as the films were in black and white when inter-titles were used so having them in a film was vital for the audience to understand as black and white is sometimes harder to see what’s going on.In the late 1800’s the Cinematograph was invented and patented by the Lumière brothers. This was and early film camera which also served as a projector. The Cinematograph used films without perforations and the jerkiness was synchronised with the cameras shutter. Now days, the film cameras are much more precise and advanced. They record at an average 24 frames per second and are in colour. They do not have jerky images in the film as they did before and there is no need for the inter-titles these days. Hand held cameras became available before the Second World War and was very popular with the public and the use of home movies came into action.Technological ChangesNosferatu was made by a German Expressionist called Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau in 1922. It was a silent film and inter-titles were used all along the film. It was filmed in black and white, originally in German and had an original running time of 1 hour and 22 minutes. The film used Non-diegetic sounds to create an atmosphere and a mood. This would have been more than likely done by and Orchestra as now. Firedrich Murnau used cutting edge technology for the time. Like the use of the vignettes like the cropped eye shape to show the view point of Nosferatu. At the start the mood is set when the inter-titles appear along with the scary Non-diegetic music being played in the background. The image is very jumpy and jerky all throughout the film. Low key lighting is used in the scarier scenes and the opposite with the not so scary scenes, but is often too dark and makes things unclear. In one of the scenes in the film, Nosferatu is running on some steps and the image is sped up to show how fast he is moving and possibly to make it more scary....
