Mise en Scene

The Mise en Scene is interpreted to be everything seen in the framing of the film. By this the audience can identify what is seen and what has been left out. For what purpose? It as all dependent on the director and what he/she wants to symbolise. “This French term was originally used in theatre to describe the arrangement of actors and materials on a stage.” Everything that is selected in the scene (framing) is another way to interoperate the definition. The key conventions used to set the Mise en Scene are: Light and Colour, Space and Staging, Framing and Composition.
