SILENT FILM HISTORY

Silent Film History Documentary
*Stop video when Sound/Talkies is introduced.





The Bank: Charlie Chaplin 



Silent Film Project - Your group will use your mime, pantomime and combat mime scenes to create a silent film by mapping it out on a storyboard.

Storyboard - A sequence of drawings, typically with some directions and dialogue, representing the shots planned for a movie or television production.



Silent Film Project

-         Create a storyboard to map out your planning for your Silent Film.

What should be on my storyboard?Shots and Signs - Each square represents a shot (video recording of scene work) or sign (written dialogue or narration). The squares are designated for writing descriptions of what happens in your scenes/shots or to show what your signs will state.

Types of Shots - Close-up, Long and Mid-range (You should have at least one close-up and mid-range shot in your film). You will receive three storyboard sheets, one for each section of your film (Beginning, Middle, Ending). Each sheet contains six squares for shots/signs. You may not need to use all six squares for each section.

What is on a sign?


Dialogue - "Oh no! Watch out!!!"

Description – The next day….
