It can be easier to grasp the importance of the term mise-en-scène if we break it down into its component elements. Each one of these elements works to create meaning and tell the story. This week, you will look at the impact of lighting choices on the creation of meaning in a film.

In any film, the intensity and direction of lighting will influence how an image is perceived by the viewer, and it can establish or enforce particular themes. Think back over films you have watched and consider how the use of lighting in key scenes helped establish the theme or tone. Think about how lighting affects your perception of certain characters and moments. Consider how these uses of lighting work in shaping the story and its themes.

    • Describe the typical effects of the style of lighting being used.
