Episode Three of Cinema and the Psyche: Ideas

Cinema and the Psyche by Matthew J Morreale - Episode Three - Ideas

 

Movies are born from ideas, they transmit ideas, and in the end, audiences are left – not with the movie, but with ideas. Therefore, movies really are just another language. Cinema is an exceptional language. So much so, that even after 120 years, we’re hardly touching its power.

To harness the power of cinema, and to harness the power of your own creative process, requires that you understand the nature of ideas, their power, and the ways in which they’re delivered and received.

Episode One: Methodology for Understanding the Nature of Cinema

Cinema and the Psyche Episode 1

 

Welcome to Episode One of ‘Cinema and the Psyche’. I decided to start with an explanation of how I’m breaking down the cinematic medium for further study.

By choosing specific aspects of the form, based on their historical emergence, I’m able to see more clearly which creative/technical paths have been (to a greater or lesser degree) neglected.

Also, as promised, here’s the two links I referred to in the podcast:

Elia Kazan on What Makes a Director and
Why 3D Doesn’t Work and Never Will
