We watch a film as a whole time based medium thus we pass right over the cinema
graphic elements operate together to produce effects divide the components of film
into four categories correspond to the stages production and postproduction
The shot an uninterrupted run of the camera to expose a series of frames a
continuously showed piece of film usually called a take once edited, it is called a
shot
A frame is a single image on a strip of film the portion that is visual on the screen
Anything that are viewed on the screen is mise-en-scene involves ‘what is shot’ and
camera is ‘how it is recorded’
Scope individual shot or film image set up for each individual shot
Mise-en-scene is already in place before the camera roles production: means
producing the mise-en-scene post-production: editing the mise-en-scene 
preproduction: designing the mise-en-scene
Phases of Production
