Student’s Name Instructor Course ID&NO Date of Submission Camera Movements in Magnolia (1999) Do camera movements generate an explicitly cinematic communication practice? What are the procedures and standards of effecting camera movements during film production and at what points in the development of a film have filmmakers used specific forms of camera movements conventionally? These are the most fundamental questions people seek to answer while trying to understand the profound influence of camera movements on the production of films. Achieving mobile shots in cinematography necessitates more than just following focus and laying tracks but also concentrating on lighting schemes to ensure that the entire film is lighted appropriately (Bowen and Thompson 128). Magnolia is characterized by emotional and rampant characters inhabiting a narrative design that deliberately revolves around incoherence such that the audience hardly recognizes its brilliance. Camera movement entails the integration of “mise-en-scene”-the optic pyramid of the space so the narrative theme. Additionally with the camera movements the viewers grasp the themes the director unfolds within a short span of time since the techniques essentially create natural connections between the characters.
