The Elements of Cinema (Paperback)Stefan Sharff (author)
Paperback 187 Pages / Published: 01/10/1982
- Not available
Beginning with the proposition that there exist uniquely cinematic elements of meaning and structure, Stefan Sharff clearly and systematically lays the foundation for "literacy" in cinema-a sensitivity to the aesthetic elements intrinsic only to film. Sharff presents the basic elements of structure, modes of expression, and rules which he argues create a specific "language" and "syntax" of cinema.
