Stylized Moments--Turning Film Style Into Meaning
by William McBride
Concretely discover meaning in film by decoding the simple, often invisible, stylistic choices (significant camera placement/movement, lighting, spatial relationships, editing, soundtrack, etc.) made by directors and their creative collaborators. Readers are instructed in the language of film and interpretive strategies so that all films begin to speak in more meaningful ways.
