ENG 225 Week 4 DQ 2 Acting and Acting Style

Short description

Prepare As we have been discussing, the mise en scène of a film is the use of a variety of design elements to create the visual theme. As you prepare to write this discussion, take a few moments to do the following: • Read any required and recommended reading materials for this week, especially Chapter 5 (Mise en Scene and Actors). 
 • Review the grading rubric for this discussion. 
 • Select a full-length film from the AFI 10 Top 10 list. 
Mise en scène refers to different technical elements used in making a film such as lighting and sound, both of which you have already analyzed in this course. The term also encompasses the role of actors in a film, their physical positioning and movements within the frame, as well as the different styles and types of acting. 
You can classify an acting category using only one film as reference, but these categories are subject to change. Each new role helps to clarify or shift an actor’s designation. Do some actors always fall into the same category? How can actors change from category to category? Does genre have any effect on the acting styles present in a given film? 
  Write (due Thursday, Day 3)
HelpNow!: Please view the video Adding Pictures and Video to Discussions and Introductions for guidance on how to integrate multimedia with your response. Using specific examples from your chosen film, write an initial post of at least 200 words which should • Identify three actors from your film and classify each according to the acting category listed in your 
 • Explain your reasons for classifying the actors as you do. Use specific references to the film and pay 
special attention to how these decisions impacted characterization. Also, consider the impact of any 
realistic or stylized portrayals within the film. 
 • Focus on one of the actors you’ve discussed. Based on other films the actor has been in, would this 
actor always be placed in the same category? If so, what does this say about the category or actor? If not, what can you infer about the flexibility of these categories? Provide evidence (references from other films, including film clips and stills) to support your argument. 
You must use at least two outside sources, in any combination of embedded video clips, still photos, or scholarly sources. All sources should be documented in APA style as outlined by the Ashford Writing Center.
