Video Essay: The Significance of the Shot-React-Shot Sequence

first_imgIn this video tutorial, find out why the Kuleshov effect just might be one of the most important aspects of successful filmmaking.In this video essay from No Film School, we get to explore why the Kuleshov effect can make or break your story. Or, to be more specific, your edit. The idea is simple; try to stay with me here — your shot must logically follow another shot. So, if one character is staring at something, show the audience what they’re staring at.Okay, I hope I didn’t lose you there. The reason why two shots juxtaposed like this is important is because understanding how an audience reads text is the very basis of filmmaking. What are they thinking while they’re looking at your images?The effect was named after Lev Kuleshov after he performed an experiment on how people react to certain types of editing. In the experiment, he showed a man staring down with a blank face, then he would cut to different items and people. Depending on what specifically he would cut to, the audience would have a different reaction. So even though the man’s facial expression wouldn’t change, the feeling would change simply because of what appeared immediately after.An important part of this experiment to consider is how filmmakers decide to tell stories. We have total control over how the audience is feeling, and this shot-react-shot style of storytelling is perhaps our greatest asset. (It’s also quite fascinating to know how the mind works in relation to images.) Image association is the heart of filmmaking, and this experiment is proof of that.Image via No Film School.You can apply this logic to many different areas of your film. For example, if two characters are locked in an embrace, a good way to add even more emotion or reaction to the scene is to show somebody else watching them. This gives your audience more information about the scene, amplifying their overall reaction. This is just a brief way to keep your audience engaged and interested in the story. When you’re drafting up your shot list or writing the screenplay, think of how the audience will see these scenes play out. Consider the reactions and emotions you want them to feel, and make sure you get those shots later.Here are a few ways you can play with your edit by using different types of cuts: Cover image via Universal Pictures.Looking for more articles on the film industry?

After much flip-flopping, Udayanraje Bhosale announces BJP entry

first_imgEnding days of speculation, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MP from Satara, Udayanraje Bhosale, finally announced his entry into the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ahead of the Assembly polls.Mr. Bhosale, a direct descendant of the Maratha warrior king Shivaji, is expected to submit his resignation to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla and formally join the BJP in the presence of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, BJP working president J.P. Nadda and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, among others in New Delhi on Saturday. While refraining from speaking to the media over his BJP entry for the past few days, Mr. Bhosale ended the suspense on Friday by tweeting a poster announcing the decision.It is a homecoming of sorts for the hell-raising royal, who had served as the State Revenue Minister in the BJP-Shiv Sena government between 1995 and 1999.On Thursday, Mr. Bhosale met NCP chief Sharad Pawar at the latter’s Pune residence in the presence of party leaders Dhananjay Munde and Shashikant Shinde. This led to fresh speculation that Mr. Pawar may, after all, have been successful in dissuading the MP from exiting a party already faced by several desertions.However, Mr. Bhosale — one of only four elected NCP MPs in Maharashtra in the recently concluded general election — apparently remained firm on his decision to leave the party. He is expected to take part in the BJP’s Mahajanadesh Yatra when the outreach tour reaches Satara on September 15.There had been much flip-flopping on part of Mr. Bhosale on his decision to join the BJP. Earlier this week, a private meeting of the MP and his supporters in Pune, where he was supposed to announce his decision, was allegedly scrapped.One reason for the MP’s hesitation in quitting the NCP was that the BJP had apparently set conditions on his entry, demanding that he resign from his parliamentary post.The MP, often a vocal critic of his own party, is apparently disgruntled with the factionalism within the NCP. Last week, in a last-ditch bid, the NCP had sent actor-turned-MP from Shirur, Dr. Amol Kolhe, to persuade him to change his mind. However, the meeting came a cropper.Swabhimani Paksha chief and NCP ally Raju Shetti, too, had called on Mr. Bhosale, remarking that leaders like the MP were required for keeping a strong opposition alive in the State.Mr. Bhosale is a tall figure in Satara district, and his defection is expected to bolster the BJP while improving its standing with the Maratha community.No stranger to brushes with the law, Mr. Bhosale was arrested in a murder case in 1999, but was later acquitted.Besides being with the BJP, he was also part of the Congress before allying himself with the NCP in 2009. when he was first elected to the Lok Sabha with a massive margin. He repeated this feat in 2014 and 2019.Last month, Mr. Fadnavis, during the course of the Mahajanadesh Yatra, had said the BJP would be happy if Mr. Bhosale joined the ruling party.last_img read more

Neeraj Chopra recovering without complications: AFI president

first_imgStar javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra is recovering from his elbow surgery without complications but he will not be rushed into any competition, including the World Championships later this year, Athletics Federation of India President Adille Sumariwala said Thursday.The 21-year-old Neeraj, who won a gold in the Commonwealth Games as well as Asian Games last year, was successfully operated by celebrated orthopaedic surgeon Dr Dinshaw Pardiwala at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai on May 2.The arthroscopic surgery on his throwing right hand was done to remove bone fragments from his elbow joint. His recovery is likely to take at least three months, putting his participation at the prestigious Doha World Championships (September-October) in doubt.”There were some bone fragments (in Neeraj’s elbow) which were removed. He has started his physiotherapy with Heath Matthews. He must have done four sessions by now. I will discuss Neeraj’s progress with Matthews and doctor Pardiwala tomorrow,” Sumariwala said.”He (Neeraj) is doing everything except throwing. He is undergoing rehabilitation. The daily report is good, so far so good, there are no complications. We are hopeful (of his complete recovery),” he added.Matthews is a renowned physiotherapist and head of sports medicine at Reliance Foundation Hospital in Mumbai. He has treated the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Sania Mirza and Mahesh Bhupathi.Asked if the AFI is hopeful of Neeraj competing in the World Championships, Sumariwalla said, “We are taking step by step, there is no point jumping the gun. We are not pushing him (to do things).advertisement”We are not even talking to him about the World Championships. If we do that he would want to throw hard. We will go step by step. We told him you do so much of rehabilitation and we will see what to next.Also Read | PM Narendra Modi wishes for Neeraj Chopra’s speedy recovery post elbow surgerylast_img read more

IT dept says CCDs Siddhartha accepted holding blackmoney disputes his signature on

first_imgNew Delhi: The Income Tax Department on Tuesday denied charges of harassment during their probe against Caf Coffee Day promoter V G Siddhartha and official sources pointed out that the signatures of the entrepreneur available with them were different from those on a letter being widely published on the social media. They said the businessman had admitted holding stash income after raids were conducted against him and his concerns. In the unverified letter, Siddhartha, who has gone missing on his way to Mangaluru from Bengaluru in Karnataka, said there was a lot of harassment from the previous DG of the Income Tax Department in the form of attaching “our shares on two separate occasions to block our Mindtree deal and then taking position of our Coffee Day shares, although revised returns have been filed by us (sic)”. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details “This was very unfair and has led to a serious liquidity crunch,” the letter, bearing a purported signature of Siddhartha, said. Refuting the charges, the official sources said the the provisional attachment of shares was made by the department to protect the “interests of revenue” in cases of large tax evasion and the action was based on “credible evidence” gathered in the search or raid action that was undertaken against the Bengaluru-based group in 2017. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday “The department has acted as per provisions of the Income Tax Act,” one of sources told PTI. The authenticity of the note circulating on the social media cannot be vouched for as Siddhartha’s signature “does not tally” with what is available with the department in the form of annual reports of the company, the source said quoting official records. They said Siddhartha fetched Rs 3,200 crore from the sale of Mindtree shares, but has paid only Rs 46 crore out of the total Rs 300 crore minimum alternate tax (MAT) payable on the deal. The raids against the group were carried out as a result of a similar action against a prominent Karnataka politician and sources said Siddhartha, in a sworn statement, “admitted” unaccounted income of Rs 362.11 crore and Rs 118.02 crore in his hands and that of Coffee Day Enterprises Ltd respectively. They alleged that tax sleuths recovered numerous messages from his mobile phone that indicated his “active involvement in cross-border hawala transactions.” A Singaporean citizen was searched in this case and he was found with unaccounted cash of Rs 1.2 crore and the person told tax officials that it belonged to Siddhartha, they claimed. They alleged that the CCD promoter filed his IT returns but “did not” mention the undisclosed income, as admitted in the sworn statement, in both the cases except an amount of around Rs 35 crore in his individual case. “Even on this admitted sum, Siddhartha did not pay the self-assessment tax of Rs 14.5 crore as quantified by him as on date. Coffee Day Enterprises Ltd did not offer the admitted income in its part,” the source said. They said the department got to know through media reports in January this year that Siddhartha was planning to sell the equity shares of Mindtree Ltd, held by him and his company, on an immediate basis. Tax officials found that Siddhartha and Coffee Day Enterprises Ltd together held nearly 21 per cent of shareholding in Mindtree Ltd and it was also found that the deal for sale of shares was set to be finalised within that month, they said. As the tax revenue ramification in this case was worth crores and the assessee had not taken permission from the I-T authorities for selling these shares, they were attached as per the norm, they said. Mindtree Ltd’s 74,90,000 shares were attached and such an action is a normal requirement to protect the interests of revenue in big cases of tax evasion, they said. They said Siddhartha then filed a request letter to release these shares and offered other shares of Coffee Day Enterprises Ltd as security against the expected demand. The department accepted this request and the attachment of Mindtree shares were revoked on February 13 this year, they said. However, a specific condition was put by the department that the sale proceeds will be utilised only for repayment of loans availed against the Mindtree Ltd shares by opening escrow account and the remaining balance will be provided for attachment to the department against the tax liability to arise. “The alternate attachment of 46,01,869 unencumbered shares and 2,04,43,055 encumbered shares of Coffee Day Enterprises Ltd was made on February 13-14,” they said. The assessee (Siddhartha) had transferred the Mindtree Ltd shares to L&T Infotech Ltd on April 28 and received around Rs 3,200 core, they said. Out of this consideration, they said, Siddhartha and his company repaid loan of around Rs 3,000 crore and paid expenses related to transfer of Rs 154 crore and the balance of Rs 46 crore was paid towards first instalment of advance tax of estimated MAT liability of around Rs 300 crore in the case of shares of Coffee Day Enterprises Ltd. The CCD promoter is the son-in-law of former Karnataka chief minister and BJP leader S M Krishna and was last seen near a bridge on Netravati river in Kotepura area in Dakshina Kannada district on Monday night. Authorities have launched a massive search for him.last_img read more
