Shotwell Samantha Shotwell Com. Arts 250 TA: Sreya Mitra March 27 , 2008 Section: 605 Sunrise In 1927 William Fox Murnau created a silent film called Sunrise, which became number three on the top 100 silent films. The main characters that were unnamed were in a love triangle: the Man, the Wife and the Women from the city. The story is a traditional, eternal, universal tale of attempted murder, love, feelings, manipulating, and reconciliation. Out of all the scenes of Sunrise , the most thrilled scene that really caught my attention was the “Doubt and Desire”. To help insure that the idea of fear and uncertainty was accentuated in the scene Doubt and Desire, Murnau used the stylistic elements mise-en-scene and editing to emphasize the main ideal, it created specific conclusion about the larger theme. In the stylistic elements mise-en-scene and editing I will mainly focus on two key concepts: editing I will use superimposition and transitioning, in mise-en-scene I will use lighting and costumes/makeup. The stylistic element of mise-en-scene’s lighting and costume/makeup intertwined together that gave characteristic clue’s of man character. For costume, dark hair, dark blazer and dark pants gave an assumption that he was mysterious and a mischievous character, creating this image of fear. A grimy dark color with a ruff looking beard was linked with makeup; it too made him look mischievous and eerie. Light, the stylistic element of mise-en-scene was also used to emphasize the characteristic of male character.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
