Notes:

Introduction

One of my favoruite things about offering these videos to the film community is that there seems to be an real appetite for discussion of great films. With this in mind I want to bring a film to the table that hasn’t gotten the attetion its deserves and my two aims this this video are to raise some awareness of the quality and unqiueness of this film and secondly explore the structural form, themes and narrative of Kubricks Forgotten Mastepeice.

Shame analysis Part 2

Steve McQueen’s Shame is a poetic and detailed character study that is full of aesthetic pleasure but also a meaningful use of form.

Iv already created a short analysis on the opening shot of this film describing the meaning and visual imformation.

This analysis will focus on a scene that, on surface level doesn’t stand out as the most memorable of the film, but I feel is packed with inner conflict and acts as a major turning point in Brandons story.

To put this scene in context and to fully appreciate the weight this scene holds, lets first look at the information that has been shared with the audience so far.

The film does a great job of setting up the pattern of a cycle in Brandons life.

As a sex addict, he is stuck in the cycle of lonleiness, lust, lone observation and sexual gratification. We see this cycle repeated many times through the first 25 minutes of the film, with different women and circumstances but always the same habitual patterns. The opening of the film even starts with Brandon circling his aparatment to physically ill...

Back to the Fututre – The Econemy of Stortelling

As the film opens we hear the ticking of clocks, tying into the the theme of the overall narrative.

 

The most impressive...

Notes:

Tarantino Character creation.

(Informal scenes that reveal character)

A piece of writing advice I receieved recently has led me back to the work of Tarantino. Known for his violence and redeption stories, but also his colourful and unforgettable characters.

The advice surrounded the idea of creating great charcaters and knowing them well enough to write fully realised characters.

The advice was ‘Know who your character are when their alone, and know who they are trying to presents themsleves to be around others.’

Now at first glance this advice seems like ‘Character’ and ‘Characteristaion’ but digging into it a little deeper, the question is really getting at the kind of thinking your character has about themselves, there veiwpoint on the world and how to present themselves within it.

Really were talking about tw...
