Film Study - Mise-en-Scene

Film Study - Mise-en-Scene


Mise-en-Scene is a powerful technique used in film (and on stage). Meaning "placement on stage", it's about the way people, objects, colour, lighting etc are placed in a single shot. The way elements are used in that shot tell a significant story so it's important that your students can analyse this. This PDF comes in two sizes - one for your screen/projector, but also one to print as I think you'll want to give students a printed copy of the example provided (an analysed shot from the film "The Dressmaker"). This is designed primarily for high school students.

  • Sharing/Copying this Resource

    A lot of work went into this.  I’d prefer you kept this resource to yourself.  I’m happy for you to share larger products (like the Achievement Standard and Unit Standard tasks) with others in your department, but this is just a wee price.  Buy your own, and let others buy theirs.  Cheers!  😊
