Part I: Beginning to Analyze Film
To compete Part I, choose a movie you have viewed in the past (this does not have to be from the University of Phoenix: How Films Communicate Film List ). You may need to view this film again to aide in competing this assignment. Films are not provided by UoP, so you will need to arrange for films to view through rental, streaming service or purchase. Review the following example in the table and then complete your information by inserting the title of your movie and completing the entries for time and place, costume, and set design, writing in complete sentences, then describe the atmosphere created by the combination of film elements discussed in Ch. 1 of Film and how they contributed to your liking or disliking of the movie. Submit Part I in Week 1.
 




Movie


Time and Place


Costume


Set Design


Describe the atmosphere created by the combination of film elements and how they contributed to your liking or disliking of the movie.




Example Movie
 
Alien, (Scott, 1979)
 
 
 


Example Entry
 
The movie is set in the far-off future. The movie takes place in space on board a spaceship and some action occurs on the surface of a planet.


Example Entry
 
The characters often appear in grubby, casual clothing and what appear to be worn-out uniforms. Also, they appear in space suits when they journey to the planet.


Example Entry
 
The sets looks very high-tech and run-down at the same time. In some areas there are very streamlined and modern-looking set pieces, and in other areas pipes or tubing can be seen running along the walls.


Example Entry
 
The overall atmosphere is gritty and realistic creating the sense that this is a lived-in world. The atmosphere of the planet they visit is creepy because the shapes of the set seems alive. The characters are all acting realistically, especially the character of Lambert who is terrified. The characters fit into this world well, looking sweaty and with no visible make-up. The elements combined contributed to my enjoyment by making the action feel like it was really happening. Also, the alien design was nightmarish.
