Availability: Ready to download

In this book we learn that there is a clear but complex relationship between setting and character on screen. Certain settings stand out above others--think of the iconic gooey dripping tunnels that Ripley stumbles through in Aliens, Norman's bird-decorated parlour in Psycho or the dark Gotham of certain Batman movies. But what makes these particular settings so powerful a In this book we learn that there is a clear but complex relationship between setting and character on screen. Certain settings stand out above others--think of the iconic gooey dripping tunnels that Ripley stumbles through in Aliens, Norman's bird-decorated parlour in Psycho or the dark Gotham of certain Batman movies. But what makes these particular settings so powerful and iconic? Amedeo D'Adamo explains why we care about and cry for certain characters, and then focuses on how certain places then become windows onto their emotional lives. Using popular case studies such as Apocalypse Now, Amelie, Homeland and The Secret Garden, this original and insightful book is the first to really explain what makes some settings so effective, revealing an important but as yet uncovered machinery of empathy in visual narrative space. An invaluable resource for students, academics and indeed young filmmakers designing their very own narratives for space on screen.

    Es un documento bastante interesante, me gustó la manera en que fue abarcando los diferentes conceptos y cómo se tomaba el tiempo para darles forma y hacerlos más comprensibles; Desearía que mi reseña fuera más detallada y objetiva, sin embargo es el primer libro que leo de este tipo de temas. Lo obtuve de manera gratuita cuando la editorial Springer los regaló a inicios de la pandemia.

    I got this book for free on springer during the Covid-19 lock down and what a fascinating read it turned out to be. The definitions and classifications of characters, the detailed analyses with examples, the space breakdowns are quite well arranged. As a cinéphile I admire the research work put into collecting the information and presenting it with a very technical approach. Highly recommended!.
