Unit 3 Environment

The Unit 3 Brief is an interesting one. We will be studying the 'Mise-en-scene' (placing on stage) in films. From the lighting to the decor to the placement of props, we will be looking at the reasoning behind subtle ambiguous imagery that the viewer can relate to. Often the most frightening scenes in horror films are not fast paced with the villainous character chasing the innocent victim but the eeriness of the surroundings and props.

A classic example of 'Mise-en-Scene' from the horror classic Nosferatu

I will also be researching lo 'Tableau Vivant' (living picture) in photography as well as striking visual imagery from renowned paintings which will give me inspiration for creating an evocative environment for my final piece.
