This My Movie Log journal is based on our class screening of Big, our discussion of “MIse-en-scène”, and this week’s course reading. You should complete these before tackling this Journal.
Your journal should include the following two parts:
Part One: Mise-en-scene includes Design and Composition. In your words, briefly describe these two terms. Also, what are the specific elements of design explored in your reading (see “Design” in Chapter 5)? (you can give a list of these elements) (target 150 words)
Part Two: Focus on one stand-out moment/scene in Big. Analyze your stand-out moment based on the use of design. In what ways does the mise-en-scène (specifically one element of design) complement the performance style and narrative?
For this brief analysis focus on one element of design that stands out to you (see “Design” in Chapter 5). Using specific examples from your stand-out moment/scene, in what ways does that element of design complement the performance and narrative? Although Lighting is also a design element, please do not use lighting for this analysis. (target 150 words)
