Story Telling - Essay Idea
In this essay the film 'Saving Private Ryan' will be explored in the view of it's editing that was created purposely by director Steven Spielberg to create a sense of immersion. The techneques employed such as the use of the 'shaky cam' and POV (point of view) shot are generally heavily critisized in but heavily used in Saving Private Ryan to give that feeling of realism and the feeling of being there. it will be examined from both aspects, from the critics view and also from Spielberg himself from the DVD commentry. Some of the success of this essay will depend on gaining the testimonials of the advisers on the film. That was the war veterans themselves that faught there in person, hopefully research on this will also be gained.
