MOVEMENT (chapter three)
The representation of movement can have a huge impact upon the style and meaning of a film. A death scene shot in slow-motion will convey very different intentions from one shot in fast-motion. Select any scene from a film you consider formalist. Propose an alternative way to represent movement in the scene. (Hint: If the scene is in slow-motion, shoot it at regular speed. If it uses close-up shots, re-frame it with a telephoto lens.) How has your “take” altered the meaning, mood or style of the scene? Has it impacted the film overall? How?
