Business Success For the Working Filmmaker Videographer

The Blog 7 Ways Mise-en-scene Will Make You a Better Filmmaker

Matt Editing , Filmmaking , Video Production , Writing 2 Comments

We have a guest post today from Michael Hall of ShoHawk . ShoHawk is a filmmaking education site and Michael writes for us today about a term any good filmmaker should know: mise-en-scene.

As filmmakers and directors, the purpose of our art is to tell a visual story to our audience. Many (if not most) people think that the Mens Outdoor Sport Running Walking Shoes Lightweight Casual Sneakers B102 White ZwUV0aUu
is either explicitly conveyed in the script/narration or at least implicitly delivered along the plot and conversations between the characters.

Although this isn’t entirely incorrect, the vast majority of viewers tend to neglect elaborate design aspects seen on the screen, including but not limited to lighting, location, costume, and props.

Just like in a novel in which the author has to create an atmosphere, which reflects characters’ state of mind, film production also requires the director to produce the exact same thing; the biggest difference is that the director needs to do this visually.

The result of this visual treatment is called mise-en-scene .

Mise-en-scene— a starting point

The term mise-en-scene comes from a French theatrical expression , which means ‘to put into the scene.’

The mise-en-scene covers the most noticeable attributes of a film —that includes the set up and the actors, which includes different costumes and make-up, props, and different natural or artificial details for the scenes to be filmed.

Mise-en-scene is an expression used to describe the theater or film production design aspects. It is usually used to refer to various single scenes inside the film to represent the whole film. This basically signifies the visual theme, both in visual artful ways through storyboarding and cinematography for the whole movie.

The mise-en-scene in a film shows the visuals in the frame and the way it appears and is organized. In many places, the term has pretty much survived into the present day in this shape.

Mise-en-scene was first applied to film by a number ofFrench critics writing in the 1950s. This was at Cahiers du Cinéma (Notebooks on Cinema). Mise-en-scene refers to the fullness of any given shot.

The visuals that were filmed, and also how it is framed are involved in mise-en-scene. This mise-en-scene was first acquired from French theater, where it referred to everything that appears on the stage.

The reasoning was that a film’s mise-en-scene comprised of everything that the camera sees: the setting, the lighting, the on-screen characters, their performances and acting with their outfits, makeups and props. It referred to how those components were arranged in the frames.

@Melanie 1) I think you could change MARC to do better but then I would not be MARC anymore. You would need to ban many current use, so it would be a totally different format. I suppose that just changing fields will not work. 2) Just using MARC, XML, RDF, or anything else is not enough but you need to keep in mind the framework around these formats and how they are actually be used. The task is to exactly define the format in atomic parts, that can be used independently from each other. As shown in this article, MARC was not designed for this task. XML can do (but it does not require) and RDF is more designed to split and merge pieces of data. You can also design unusable records in RDF, just as you could design better usable records in MARC, but the framework around RDF and how it is actually used, encourages you to design data in a more usable way.

So, if I understand you correctly:

1) you could do that with MARC, but it wouldn’t really be a good solution to the problem. It certainly wouldn’t solve the problem of legacy data!, but then I realized that even before I asked the question. The conversion of legacy data is a lead weight that drags the whole process down, I think.

and 2) There isn’t yet really a good replacement yet. Maybe XML with a really good DTD?

I see also that UNIMARC (the main rival to MARC21 outside the English-speaking world) went a similar route to UK-MARC, meaning that the punctuation separating fields is generated from the subfield markers. So it looks like it’s just MARC21 which is tied to the era of catalogue card production.

Great article provides much to think and rethink…

Hello Jason, tried your direct email without success … You know, in my MLS training, we called MARC Machine-Readable Code … maybe if we bring back that term, your notion of the markup might make more sense to others.

Just a thought that zipped through as I was thinking about the article … or perhaps I was rethinking, gee whiz, it is hard to keep track.


Until that time … Earl J.

Dedicating a lot of time to writing for free may seem counter-productive, but guest posting can be very beneficial for authors. After Steve Gillman, author of , wrote an article for the Huffington Post, he made $800 in Adsense revenue in only 3 days. His site got over 20,000 more views than normal in that time period - and his article didn't even go viral.

Guest posting has a lot of other benefits, besides driving more traffic to your site. It builds your authority as an author, it can help your site rank better and it increases the reach of your content. If you do it right, guest posting can get you more invites for interviews, more reviews and better book sales.

Here are your 5 most important tips on how to make guest posting work for you:

1. Find the right website/blog

It is easy to find sites that accept guest posts. Do a Google search for keywords like "guest post by", "writers wanted" or "write for us" and you will have plenty of options. But not all sites were created equal and contributing to the wrong one can be a royal waste of time. For the best impact, you want the ones with the greatest reach in your niche and with the most dedicated fans. The one reason why the Huffington Post made such a huge impact on Steve Gillman's site is because the Huffington Post gets over 80 million unique global visitors per month. If only a fraction of the Huffington Post’s readers go to his site, it would already be a great boost to your traffic.

Google is still your friend, so expanding your search with keywords from your niche would give you a couple of sites that rank highly. But you still need to check whether the site is a good match for you:

2. Find the perfect topic

Once you have identified a site you want to contribute to, have an in-depth look at the type of content it publishes. Looking at what type of posts get the most shares on the site will give you an indication of what the audience is interested in. Studying the content should also give you an idea of what knowledge level the readers are on - don't try to write anything that is too basic for an advanced audience or the other way around.

See if there are any popular articles that are outdated and whether you can come up with a new angle on any of them. Look at what other guest posters wrote to give you an idea of the type of content the site owner is interested in. Once you are happy to have found the perfect topic that also ties in with your genre, find two more to include in your pitch.

3. Make a strong pitch

Not all websites are easy to pitch to right off the bat, especially if you are looking at a site as popular as the Huffington Post. For large sites like these, you may have to build relationships first: comment consistently on the site's social media pages, connect with other bloggers and editors that work for the site and ask for guidance.

With a strong pitch you can however get very far, even with some large sites. Many sites will welcome good content, especially if you have a good topic that will resonate with their readers. The secret to a good pitch is to be authentic. After doing so much research about the website, you should be able to write about it in very specific terms. Be sure to include writing samples that are similar to the type of content you think they may be looking for. Suggest two or three topics you can write about and elaborate a bit on what you had in mind for each. Run through your pitch and sample articles several times and use a grammar checker such as Grammarly to eliminate any typos, spelling or grammar mistakes. Here's an example of what a good pitch would look like.


I keep going back to site because I love your posts on . Your quirky take on has really been a great inspiration to me and has helped me to look at my own writing in a different way. Thanks so much!

I would love to contribute a guest post that would be both fun and useful to your audience.

If you are interested, I have three possible titles in mind:

Hoping to hear from you soon!


4. Promote yourself

5. Analyse the results

Check Google Analytics frequently to determine where your traffic comes from and which guest posts are really driving traffic to your site. This data can eventually help you to figure out which sites are most worth your time and effort. Use analytics goals to see how the traffic from different sources performs on your site. Look at whether or not visitors coming in via your articles are taking desired actions such as signing up to your newsletter, downloading samples of your books or clicking through to Amazon. Stay tuned to our newsletter for detailed instructions on how you can use Google Analytics to track performance and make better informed decisions.

Use tools like SEMrush and Moz to see the website’s rankings. If the site doesn’t get enough traffic, it may not be worth your while. Read our article How to Gauge a Website’s Traffic and Influence if you are not quite sure what to look for.
