This essential book covers the key areas for A Level Film Studies students, building confidence through a careful, step-by-step approach.

The first part of the book establishes a basic understanding of the grounding of film analysis in the various elements of film construction, mise en scène, cinematography, editing, sound and performance, developing the knowledge students have of movies whilst challenging them to consider new films and ideas. Key theoretical approaches around narrative, genre, representation, spectatorship and authorship are introduced in part two, before we consider specific national cinemas from around the world in parts three and four. In part five, the book assesses a range of slightly different film experiences, looking at silent cinema, experimental films and documentaries; before, finally, part six shifts to evaluating creative approaches to students' own filmmaking.

Specifically designed to be user-friendly, the book has an easy-to-follow design, includes more than sixty colour images and is packed with features such as:

    1. case studies on a range of films and filmmakers,

      2. activities on such films as Sunrise (Murnau, 1927, US), Vertigo (Hitchcock, 1958, US), Do the Right Thing (Lee, 1989, US), We Need to Talk About Kevin (Ramsay, 2011, UK), Stories We Tell (Polley, 2012, Can),

      3. definitions of key terms,

        4. suggestions for further reading and website resources.

          Matched to the current exam specification, A Level Film Studies: The Essential Introduction covers everything students need to study as part of the course. The book is supported by a companion website at www.alevelfilmstudies.co.uk offering further advice and activities.

          Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Ein Kopierschutz bzw. Digital Rights Management wird bei diesem E-Book nicht eingesetzt.
