January 21, 1999 Announcements: None. Lecture Notes: I. General Review of Citizen Kane Because it violates Classical Hollywood Style in terms of visibility, it was a flop when it first came out. o People weren't used to seeing movies like this The movie uses contemplative editing, which was a new technique designed to draw in an audience o Form of editing where you're not told directly how to interpret each scene The overlapping sounds throughout the movie create a sense of confusion II. Tracking Shot A single, uninterrupted shot moving parallel to the floor Primes audience to receive a lot of privileged information about characters Although Welles(director of CK) uses tracking shots, he doesn't always provide any information Technique widely used by Martin Scorcese(Goodfellas) Complicated to set up because the actors have to move with exact synchronicity o Since there is no editing, if the actor messes up, reshoot the whole thing Considered expensive, artistic indulgences
