A Revolution for the Screen




Paul Cuff

Abel Gance's silent masterpiece, Napoleon, was given a limited run on its debut in 1927, but soon afterwards distributors in France and America, unwilling to deal with its nine-hour running time, subjected it to savage cuts - with devastating results for the movie and for film history. The struggle across ensuing decades to restore and reintegrate Gance's film has formed a backdrop to an array of formal, contextual, and ideological battles. In this book, Paul Cuff takes account of those battles and challenges received opinion on Gance's view of both his film and its subject.

Exhibiting cinema in contemporary art

Exhibiting cinema in contemporary art




Erika Balsom

Whether it involves remaking an old Hollywood movie, projecting a quiet 16mm film, or constructing a bombastic multi-screen environment, cinema now takes place not just in the movie theatre and the home, but also in the art gallery and the museum. The author of this engaging study takes stock of this development, offering an in-depth inquiry into its genesis, its defining features, and the ramifications it has for art and cinema alike. Through the lens of contemporary art history, she examines cinema studies great disciplinary obsession ­ namely, what cinema was, is, and will become in a digital future.

Sonic time machines




Wolfgang Ernst

Our studies of aesthetics and knowledge have long tended to privilege the visual - at the expense, Wolfgang Ernst argues, of the aural. 'Sonic Time Machines' aims to correct that, presenting a striking new approach to theorising sound that investigates its split existence: as a temporal effect in a techno-cultural context and as a source of knowledge and information. Ernst creates a new term for the concept at the heart of the book, "sonicity," a flexible and powerful term that allows him to consider sound with all its many physical, philosophical, and cultural valences.

The craft of screenwriting

The craft of screenwriting




Addy Weijers

Isnt it ironic? Screenwriting is not something you learn from a book, or a talent that just falls into your lap. Nevertheless, without talent you will never become a great scriptwriter. Above all scriptwriting is a craft that you learn to master by writing, reflecting, and rewriting time after time. A book can help you with that. This book will hopefully encourage you to study scripts or reflect on movies and TV-drama. It will sharpen your view on the basics of storytelling and dramatic characters. Reflection and analysis are at the base of the progress of every screenwriter. Once you write scripts yourself, it is equally important to get criticism. That is never fun but often very instructive. In this book theory, analyses, backgrounds and practical matters are discussed in a series of consecutive and cohesive chapters. We will travel around in the beautiful world of the script, and illustrate both the practical side of screenwriting and the more objective, analytical side. Certainly in screenwriting, these two aspects are closely interrelated. The one cannot exist without the other. This book is not a step-by-step guide towards a great script. Of course you can read it from beginning to end, but hopefully you will return to parts of the text every now and then. Addy Weijers is lecturer Communication Studies at Radboud University Nijmegen and teaches script writing at the International Media and Entertainment Management Academy of the NHTV in Breda. He has worked as a scriptwriter, script analyst and script doctor for film and television at the KRO broadcasting company for more than 15 years. He created and (co)wrote several television series including the long running police show Russen.

The permanent crisis of film criticism




Mattias Frey

Film criticism is in crisis. Dwelling on the many film journalists made redundant at newspapers, magazines, and other 'old media' in past years, commentators have voiced existential questions about the purpose and worth of the profession in the age of WordPress blogospheres and proclaimed the 'death of the critic'. Bemoaning the current anarchy of internet amateurs and the lack of authoritative critics, many journalists and academics claim that in the digital age, cultural commentary has become dumbed down and fragmented into niche markets. Mattias Freu, arguing against these claims, examines the history of film critical discourse in France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States . He demonstrates that since its origins, film criticism has always found itself in crisis: the need to show critical authority and the anxieties over challenges to that authority have been longstanding concerns.
