French Cinema: Now and Then!
Crisis of Contemporary French Cinema
The "Diary Du Dimanche" as of late distributed a consternating article entitled " La vraie facture du Cinema Francais – The genuine expense of French Cinema'. This article highlights the monstrous issues with the subvention framework including cast charges, dispersion bargains, the sub zero condition of TV venture and the absence of open hobby…
The primary issue with French silver screen is the absence of a multi-gushed industry and our very own patriot vision society.
Not at all like the UK and the US film commercial enterprises incorporating Independent, 'Medium Weight' and Mainstream, the French silver screen is basically 'mono stream' at the special case of a modest bunch of movies intersection the fringes generally delivered by the two noteworthy creation organizations in our nation – Europa Corp and Canal +.
We are all free fimmakers here and the idea of film industry is not by any means relevant – sadly. There is no turnover, there is no gross income, there is no business sector past our fringes, and there are no particular targets. We are film artisans running our own particular little shops contrasting our restricted results and the nets of outside Mega Malls. Thankfully, a few business people set out to think contrastingly and battled for the nature of our items abroad – Europa Corp and Canal +.
The main actuality the CNC (principle budgetary body – likeness the BFI) forced the French dialect as a major aspect of its prerequisite for subvention, bargains the motion picture to get any conveyance bargain during childbirth. This is a ludicrous confinement and a social misguided judgment. As a French individual, does the main reality to communicate in English make me "Less French"? Don't I exemplify my worth and society when I am abroad? Am I not the social diplomat of my nation when I…...

Industry Overview Resilient industry The US movie exhibition industry is considered a relatively defensive industry with low revenue volatility. Main reason for this is that the American customers’ willingness to go to the movies is less correlated with the economic cycle. People go to the movies both in the good times and in the bad times. Thus, box office performance can vary widely quarter to quarter due to films released, but is generally steady in longer term (see figure 1). The box......

European Cinema More Complex Than American Cinema

...European cinema is more complex than American cinema. The above statement does not entirely reflect the reality. At the level of creative expressions, the relationship between these two continents has always been, to say the very least, a two-way road. The exchanges concerning Hollywood and the international cinema scene are long-standing and deeply rooted. During the formation of classical Hollywood cinema, many of its key architects were in fact European emigrants – Lubitsch, Dieterle, Lang, Hitchcock, Sirk, to name but a few. More recently, many of Hollywood’s finest contemporary directors – Scorsese, Altman, Coppola and others – have often turned to Europe, to the French New Wave, Italian neo-realism and the New German Cinemas for a source of inspiration and influence. In the Bioscope of 8 January 1925, Joseph Schenck, then president of United Artist, commented brutally on British film productions: “You have no personalities to put on the screen. Your stage actors and actresses are no good on the screen. Your effects are no good, and you do not spend nearly so much money.” Similar remarks can be found about almost any European cinema in almost any decade. It is possible to question the aesthetic standards by which such complaints are made. It can be argued that slow rhythms, deliberate staginess, and lack of star presence or of visible production values are positive qualities which European film-makers have exploited in creative ways and which the Hollywood cinema is the......

I can’t think of any sector that could not change massively within the next year. So before you even start thinking about what those changes might be, you must ensure that you as an individual and your company as a whole is open to change and has the structure in place to allow it.” William Higham, founder of future trends consultancy The Next Big Thing, quoted in Director Magazine, January 2012 © Maven Training Ltd 2012 І 020 7089 6161 Become a change leader… But unless an organisation sees that its task is to lead change, that organisation - whether a business, a university, or a hospital - will not survive.

...overthrow of a government or social order in favor of a new system. In history major changes take place often. One example of a major change was the French Revolution. The French Revolution occurred in France during the late 1700’s. The French people wanted to replace their Absolute government with a democracy. The ideas of the Enlightenment encouraged members of the 3rd Estate to revolt against Louis XVI. Revolution is change. The French Revolution is an example of change. There were many causes that led to the Revolution. One cause was the 3rd Estate wanted freedom. The 3rd Estate had a meeting to declare their equality within the French government. They produced a document known as the Declaration of the Rights of Man. Another cause of the Revolution was the need to lower the tax burden on the 3rd Estate. The 3rd Estate paid most of the taxes in France. A third cause of the Revolution was people wanted to have a democracy. In order to achieve this democracy the French people felt they had to execute Louis XVI by guillotine. There were many effects from the French Revolution. One immediate effect was instead of getting a democracy Napoleon took control of France. Napoleon was a dictator. However, over time France becomes a democracy. Today France is a democracy. One of the most important long term effects of the French Revolution was the inception of the Napoleonic Code, which influenced revolutions in other countries. It instilled the spirit of hope and freedom......

...The post has just arrived and in it a very nice surprise, the discovery that Jacques Seguela, one-time adviser to President Mitterrand, now close confidant of President and Madame Sarkozy (indeed he intoduced them), and something of a legend in French political communications, has dedicated his latest book to little old moi. With apologies for the missing accents here and in the French bits of the long posting which follows – the dedication to ‘Le Pouvoir dans la Peau‘ (Power in the skin) reads ‘A Alastair Campbell, mon spin doctor prefere’ (three missing accents in one word – mes excuses sinceres). So what did I do for this honour, you are asking? Well, perhaps the fact that he asked me to read his book, and write a ‘postface’ assessment both of his writing and of the issues he covers, and the fact that I said yes, has something to do with it. He says some blushmakingly kind things in his ‘preface to the postface’, which I will have to leave to French readers of the whole thing (published by Plon). But for the largely Anglophone visitors of this blog, I thought some of you might like to read the said ‘postface’ in English (apart from the bits where I quote direct from his book). I hope all those students who write asking for help with dissertations will find something quotable in it. Meanwhile I am off to Norway for a conference and a meeting with the Norwegian Labour Party. I’m looking forward to being in the country with the highest ‘human development index’ in......

Innovations in Cinema

...reward type business. It has been the goal of studios and filmmakers to put buts in seats at cinemas all over the world. Over the decades new technologies have added more interest to viewers in the ultimate goal to have the best experience watching a film. In society the cinema was used as a catalyst to forget about what’s going on in daily lives of viewers and take the audience to another world or another time. It was the perfect getaway from troubles of the real world. The Beginning: The first developed film technology was the Kinetoscope projector. Inventor Thomas Edison developed the Kinetoscope. The Cinematograph developed by the Lumiere Brothers was an advancement on its predecessor the Kinetoscope. The Lumiere Brothers would send camera men all over to film various things done by people and they would show the film with their Cinematograph to an audience and from there the cinema was born. Around 1898 a man named George Melies used the technology given and established vast sets and camera tricks as a way to make films even more unique and special. Melies’ films would take the viewer to the moon or on an adventure across the seven seas. People would come to see his films because it was something different. Up to that point films were only a minute or two long but with the success of Melies longer films other producers began making longer films as well. The Birth of the Cinema Theater: At this time film exhibition was more of a novelty where it would be shown......

... I R M A N ’ S S T A T E M E N T However, we at PVR also realized that its in unique times like this, that tremendous medium and long term opportunities arise. This is the time to re-examine fundamentals, re-jig the core of the business and go line by line to draw stronger efficiencies. Every single person on the PVR team stood shoulder to shoulder and hammered away at every opportunity to do this, regardless of whether it came wrapped in a good or difficult situations, till silver linings appeared everywhere. PVR used the spaces inherent in times like this, to enter new entertainment and leisure domains. The long awaited bowling centre project was piloted and launched to great acclaim. New cinemas were inaugurated. Production projects were completed and released. Tremendous breadth and depth was added to several operation footprints. Given that PVR depends greatly on its internal accruals to finance expansion, your company’s expansion plans were not curtailed the way other capital market-dependant industry players were. To handle topline and bottomline contraction, PVR teams saved or maximized every rupee. Distribution was revisited and operational costs were pared down across the board without affecting core efficiencies. Capital was raised at reasonable costs to tide the company through requirement situations. Teams in operations did their best to maximize average revenue per user across exhibition and F&B. Marketing maximized......

Spanish Cinema

...Global Studies 298: Barcelona Winter 2009 Cinema History in Barcelona and Spain Cinema reflects the voice and culture of a nation. It documents important changes in politics, lifestyle, and even language. Barcelona was the birthplace for Cinema in of Spain. During the silent period of film all of the biggest Spanish directors including Marro, Chómon, Gelabert, and Bános were based out of Barcelona (Alvarez 6). The first films that had sound where shown in Barcelona before anywhere else, although without sound due to the lapse in technological capabilities (Alvarez 7). Barcelona’s movement in film did not stop there. Throughout the years and generations Catalan cinema has been a part of Spanish culture and has in its own right fought to survive. In the beginning Barcelona was the sole player in Spanish Cinema. Madrid, the other major metropolitan area, was more concerned with traditional forms of entertainment such as bullfighting and la zarzuela (musical theater) (Alvarez 6). The first Spanish film was actually that of a group of church goers leaving Sunday Mass which was entitled Salida de la misa de doce del Pilar or in English: “Leaving the Midday Mass at the Church of Pilar in Zaragoza.” This film was already the way from 1896 and would seem to show an enthusiastic future for film if it were not for such factors as foreign competition, government, and an overbearing church (Stone 14). During the turn of the century in particular themes of the......

Parment / Journal of Retailing and Consumer Services 20 (2013) 189–199 In the case of automobiles, the trend among younger individuals to put less emphasis on the car as a product is mirrored in the considerably lower purchase involvement for Generation Y individuals (Fig. 6). In many Western countries, the percentage of driver’s license holders has declined and the role of the car as a status symbol has been challenged by an increased interest for other products. When Generation Yers came of age, the car had already been questioned for its impact on the physical environment, its contribution to traffic congestions, and the high costs it incurs for its owners. Hence, the car never reached the same level of iconic status as it did for Baby Boomers. Furthermore, consumers are more likely to search for and be better informed about durable goods......

Cinema and Society

...BS4305 CINEMA & SOCIETY ASSESSMENT 2 MEDRIC NUMBER (1319683) BA (HONS) ERASMUS STUDENT DOGUKAN SEVINC Lecturers Responsible: Dr. Fiona Smith Word Length: 1800 In brief, Hugo tells the story of a young orphan in 1930s Paris, whose solitary life, keeping the clocks up to date in the railway station, is changed once he encounters a shopkeeper with a remarkable past. While it is a fantastic story, the use of real places makes the mise-en-scene naturalistic; the story is mostly constructed in a Parisian train station. The challenge of setting the film in just a station is refreshing, reminding me the film “The Rope” by Hitchcock, and how innovative it was to create a whole plot line in one apartment. A train station can be viewed as an anonymous place where people like Hugo can live without being noticed. Besides, the people walking around the train station make great comedy with their interactions and thus enhancing the narrative. The characters such as the police officer, who makes every effort to send any parentless child in the station to the orphanage, the flowershop girland the old couple also enable the director to jump between story lines throughout the narrative, keeping the audience interested. Another subject that twists the narrative is the early film history, which takes us on a journey when Melies flashbacks to his time as a movie director. On the other hand, the mise-en-scene is constructed in a manner so that we as the audience can believe that......

Spanish Cinema

...Cultural Project 2 – Spanish Cinema For the Cultural Project 2 assignment I decided to continue my exploration of Spanish cinema. I searched for a movie that would include historical events that could broaden my knowledge of the Spanish culture. I chose the Spanish-American film entitled “Goya’s Ghosts” because of the historical relevance the time period had on Spanish culture. The film included references to the Spanish Monarchy, the influence of the Catholic Church, the Spanish Inquisition, French Revolution, and a renowned Spanish painter named Francisco Goya. “Although the historical setting of the movie was based on actual historical events, the movie itself is a work of fiction”(Goya’s). The setting for Goya’s Ghosts begins in Spain in the year 1792. The Catholic Church is “disturbed by prints, created by an artist named Francisco Goya, that are being circulated around the country depicting the clergy using unflattering imagery”(Francisco). There is a long discussion on how the Church should handle the situation, when Brother Lorenzo intervenes. He suggests that “the artist’s depiction is insight into a bigger problem and should be handled by increasing the pressure the church applies to finding people who do not believe in their faith”(Spanish). “The Tribunal of the Holy Office of the Inquisition (Spanish: Tribunal del Santo Oficio de la Inquisición), commonly known as the Spanish Inquisition (Inquisición española), was a tribunal established...
