Michel Chion’s “La Musique au cinema” shows 3 different kind of sound in the film. Acousmatic sound (ON), Visualized sound (OUT), and Non-diegetic sound (OFF).
Here, I found a clear definition of those three sounds.
Basically, there are 2 sounds in film, “diegetic sound” and “non-diegetic sound”.
Furthermore, “diegetic sound” can be divided to 2 sounds. On-Screen and Off-Screen.
Another example of acousmetre is “A Letter To Three Wives”.
I should change a storyline a little.
I have checked my script using “Dramatic Question”. And realised that this is not clearly shown.
And from this finding, I dug down more to find where to fix.
Dramatic Question is not clearly shown. (I could not find)
Conflict is not shown.
Protagonist is unclear. (Father or Son?)
Theme is not clear.
・ Put a theme
・ Decide which is protagonist
・ Show his conflict (What is the dramatic question?)
・ Show dramatic question’s answer.
Instead of posting a brainstorming, I would put images that I love.
Probably, this album is the foundation of what I write and think. SO, I think this is also the “scrap book” that Jeremy said on Friday.
I changed the setting just before that for everyone can see it, but if you can’t, please leave a message.
FILM TITLE: LOVE YOU MORE
DIRECTOR: SAM TAYLOR-WOOD
Until the title.
・ Protagonist is a boy (Peter)
・ He likes a girl (Georgia)
・ But they are not friends, just classmates
・ Georgia is a bad student
Can Peter get Georgia?
I have 3 suggestions for the turning point.
1. When Peter says “Are you looking for this?” 1:58
The first words Peter says to Georgia.
2. When Peter shoplift 2:39
They commit together.
3. When Peter spread beer to Georgia’s face 7:49
This is the trigger for them having sex.
Each suggestions make their relationship closer. Suggestion 3 is about the centre of the film so it can be turning point, but their relationship start to get closer when he ask her in record shop…
The scene they have sex. 7:49~11:38
They walk together on a street. 12:00
ANSWER TO THE DRAMATIC QUESTION
Yes, peter can get Georgia.
Project 2: Make a project book (or plan) for short film
ABOUT THE SHORT FILM:
Basically story of a man and a woman. They are about to break up.
Compare to the project 1, this project contains many improvisations. I will not decide in detail about the script but want to decide through the discussion between me and actors.
I want to shoot the actors themselves, not to be a character in the script.
very rough note for Tomas Alfredson’s “LET THE RIGHT ONE IN”
Translated from my twitter account
“LET THE RIGHT ONE IN” I would just say “shut up” to the Rubik’s Cube scene. But “to use hands to conform blood”, “to hit the entrance’s roof before hit the ground”, Morse code, empty classroom’s lighting, those points are well designed, I think.
Probably, the man has to hit the roof before hitting the ground. It does not have to be happened to tell the drama, but showing it is “cinematically” necessary. As well as touching blood on snow.
The lighting plan of the scene of Kare Hedebrant left classroom is designed backward. The crew put the lights above first, then set the lights for classroom.
