Eisenstein response

September 14th, 2011 by Huy Le · No Comments · ¶4 Eisenstein

Eisenstein first talks about Montage in his essay. Montage in its definition is juxtaposing images by editing. He believed that montage can create a bigger image, and he provided many example, Eisenstein was very persuasive but i wasn’t really getting what he was saying in my mind until i saw the experiment clip of  the Odessa. Most […]

Response to Eisenstein’s love of conflict.

September 14th, 2011 by Natalie Bernabe · No Comments · ¶4 Eisenstein

True or not? Throughout this essay, not only only does he divulge in the idea of conflict, but its important role in cinema. Wait, I’m getting ahead of myself. Before that, it’s all about montage. He mostly talks about how the Japanese interpret montage, but he feels it’s role in cinema shouldn’t be by the […]

Response to Eisenstein Essay

September 14th, 2011 by martinvukaj · 3 Comments · ¶4 Eisenstein

Throughout Eisenstein’s essay, one of the major aspects that grasped me was the his use of evidence supporting his arguments on montage. Eisenstein provides numerous examples, mostly deriving from Japanese culture to prove his point. I found the montage aspect he kept mentioning a rather long stretch from what it actually is and represents. A […]

Response to Eisenstein

September 14th, 2011 by Erickson Bryan · 1 Comment · ¶4 Eisenstein

I really enjoyed Eisenstein essay from start to finish. Eisenstein form of structure is the ideal structure to me. I just love the idea of his multiplication method of putting his ideas together. He starts his essay off by an argument instead of starting with his introductory paragraph(second paragraph).  I feel this way of writing is […]

Response To Esinstein

September 14th, 2011 by Stephen Mahoney · 2 Comments · ¶4 Eisenstein

Sorry for being late, I forgot to hit the publish button in word press. I really enjoyed how Esinstein started off his essay, I like how he started off by defining what in his words was cinema and what cinematography was. I agreed with his differences between the two, for instance how he basically said […]

Comparing Eisenstein to the Writing Process

September 14th, 2011 by Jeen Kim · 1 Comment · ¶4 Eisenstein

The aspect of Eisenstein’s essay that I felt was the most important and reiterated was his point about how these “montages” should be put together in such a way to give the audience a deeper, more complex level of thought. He makes two parallels: one of sum and product and the other of linkage and […]

Response to Eisenstein by Roberto Rodriguez

September 13th, 2011 by Roberto Rodriguez · 4 Comments · ¶4 Eisenstein

Before I read Eisenstein’s essay I did not think that words could be put together to form images the way that Eisenstein described how the Japanese formed images using hyrogliphs and ideograms. But I also did not know that you can use different images to express an idea like a montage can and I learned […]

Response: “One Aspect of the Eisenstein to the Writing Process” by Steven Rengifo

September 13th, 2011 by Steven Rengifo · 5 Comments · ¶4 Eisenstein

Cinematography, I believe is an important craft that a director of photography must grasp. I enjoy movies that experiment with the use of a camera (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, City of God, etc). The camera can capture and document a lot of information rather than in writing. There are times where it is […]

Eisenstein

September 13th, 2011 by Eric Dorcean · 5 Comments · ¶4 Eisenstein

Once again I feel I must stress the difficulty I initially had with this reading. I was able to interpret that the point of Eisenstein’s article when he introduced the concept of Cinema, Cinematography and Montage. However, this was made difficult to understand when he was using Japanese art and calligraphy as support. But now […]

Eisenstein’s Essay on Cinematography

September 13th, 2011 by Tom Schalk · 5 Comments · ¶4 Eisenstein

The name Eisenstein triggers the thought that such a man with that name is perhaps a relative of Einstein, the scientific genius of our times, and Frankenstein, the creator of the famous monster. That might just be me. Observation’s aside, he just happens to be a writer with a good idea on the difference between cinema and […]
