Handout: The Rider (2017) Writer/Director: Chloe Zhao D.P.: Joshua James Richards Editor: Alex O'Flinn Composer: Nathan Halpern: Music supervisor: Ben Sokoler: Questions : Think about how cinematography and mise en scene work in the film. How do the interiors and exteriors contrast with one another? How does sound function in the film? In the opening sequence, for example, pay attention to how the film uses silence . What role do lighting and landscape play in the film? In an interview, D.P. Richards said Zhao was extremely flexible with the schedule and would check whether the light was right. If not, they would wait an hour or two until it was good enough to shoot. What is the effect of shooting so many outdoor scenes in "golden hour" or sunset/sunrise? You might consider our discussion of golden hour and nostalgia when we did lighting. How does the film portray the sounds of nature/frontier , versus the sounds of "civilization" (the grocery store, interior spaces, the bar)? Horses play a significant part in the film. How do the horses function as both an almost mythical part of the land, as well as a potential threat because of their strength? How does the film use sound to convey them?

    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.
