Unit 4: Essay Intorduction

Essay introduction

This assignment will critically analyse the film ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ directed by Guillermo Del Toro, in terms of the relationship between story and structure, focusing heavily on Narrative, Narrative structure and camera movement. This will also include camera movement and editing such as cutting, dissolving, cross dissolving and a ‘panning cut’ which is a technique where the camera pans through an abject such as a wall, and continues to pan straight into another shot or scene. This technique is used often in ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’. Direct reference will be taken from ‘Film Directing Shot by Shot: visualising from concept to screen’ by Steven Katz and ‘Fairy Tale Films: Visions of Ambiguity’ by Pauline Greenhill
