Provide a copy / image of your research notes. What concepts in your learning do you now feel you have a solid grasp on? Which ones might be useful to other students in their learning?
I feel as though I have a solid grasp on the ways that cinematographers invoke emotions in their viewers by changing a variety of different variables. I have researched the ways that colours, lighting, scenery and architecture, human natural instincts, post-production editing, and the distance and angle of camera impact the way that viewers feel when they watch a video. Having a solid idea of how these concepts interact and work together was crucial in choosing the first piece of literature that I will be editing in front of different videos to portray certain emotions.
Learning the way that different colours and scenery impact viewers’ emotions is helpful in many different contexts. In marketing, for example, it is crucial to understand how to manipulate people through portraying specific emotions through ads. These skills are also important in graphic novel design, where you need to portray character emotions and influence how the reader perceives the text. These skills are also crucial for screenwriting and directing films. Additionally, learning how lighting and scenery impact human emotion is important for photography or any form of art (drawing, painting, etc.). Last, learning about human natural instincts and natural mirroring can be important while studying certain areas of psychology.
