Product Description & Reviews

Metaphors in audiovisual media receive increasing attention from film and communication studies as well as from linguistics and multimodal metaphor research. The specific media character of film, and thus of cinematic metaphor, remains, however, largely ignored. Audiovisual images are all too frequently understood as iconic representations and material carriers of information. Cinematic Metaphor proposes an alternative: starting from film images as affective experience of movement-images, it replaces the cognitive idea of viewers as information-processing machines, and heals the break with rhetoric established by conceptual metaphor theory. Subscribing to a phenomenological concept of embodiment, a shared vantage point for metaphorical meaning-making in film-viewing and face-to-face interaction is developed. The book offers a critique of cognitive film and metaphor theories and a theory of cinematic metaphor as performative action of meaning-making, grounded in the dynamics of viewers' embodied experiences with a film. Fine-grained case studies ranging from Hollywood to German feature film and TV news, from tango lesson to electoral campaign commercial, illustrate the framework’s application to media and multimodality analysis.

Creating Personalities for Synthetic Actors: Towards Autonomous Personality Agents (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)
By Springer
mpn: bibliography, ean: 9783540627357, isbn: 3540627359,
Progress in computer animation has gained such a speed that, before long, computer-generated human faces and figures on screen will be indistinguishable from those of real humans. The potential both for scripted films and real-time interaction with users is enormous. However, in order to cope with this potential, these faces and figures must be guided by autonomous personality agents. This carefully arranged volume presents the state of the art in research and development in making synthetic

European Visions: Small Cinemas in Transition (Film Studies)
By Transcript-Verlag
mpn: 60 b/w, ean: 9783837618181, isbn: 3837618188,
This volume examines the challenges which cinemas in small European countries have faced since 1989. It explores how notions of scale and ''small cinemas'' relate to questions of territory, transnational media flows and globalization. Employing a variety of approaches from industry analysis to Deleuze & Guattari's concept of the ''minor,'' contributions address the relationship of small cinemas to Hollywood, the role of history and memory, and the politics of place in post-Socialist cinemas..

Rubble, Ruins, and Romanticism: Visual Style, Narration, and Identity in German Post-War Cinema (Film Studies)
By Transcript-Verlag
mpn: 33 b/w & 11 colour illus, ean: 9783837621839, isbn: 3837621839,
Traditional criticism on German post-war cinema tends to define rubble films as simplistic texts of low artistic quality which serve to reaffirm the spectator's image of him or herself as ''a good German'' during ''bad times.'' Yet this study asserts that some rubble films are actually informed by a type of visual and narrative Romantic discourse which aims at provoking a critical discussion on German national identity and its reconstruction in the aftermath of the Third Reich. Considering the

Metareference Across Media: Theory and Case Studies: Dedicated to Walter Bernhart on the Occasion of His Retirement. (Studies in Intermediality)
By Rodopi
ean: 9789042026704, isbn: 9042026707,
Strange as it may seem, Cervantes's novel Don Quixote, Marc Forster's film Stranger than Fiction, Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream, Pere Borrell del Caso's painting ''Escaping Criticism'' reproduced on the cover of the present volume and Mozart's sextet ''A Musical Joke'' all share one common feature: they include a meta-dimension. Metaization - the movement from a first cognitive, referential or communicative level to a higher one on which first-level phenomena self-reflexively

Media Authorship (AFI Film Readers)
By Brand: Routledge
ean: 9780415699433, isbn: 0415699436,
Contemporary media authorship is frequently collaborative, participatory, non-site specific, or quite simply goes unrecognized. In this volume, media and film scholars explore the theoretical debates around authorship, intention, and identity within the rapidly transforming and globalized culture industry of new media. Defining media broadly, across a range of creative artifacts and production cultures―from visual arts to videogames, from textiles to television―contributors consider

Bouncy and effervescent, extracts from her childhood diary are interspersed

Eric Rohmer was a key figure in French New Wave cinema. His death in 2010 sparked renewed interest in his diverse body of works that span films, criticism, and television work. Contributors to this volume - a mix of well-known and younger scholars of cinema - visit, revisit, complicate, and at times upend accepted readings and interpretations of perennial Rohmerian topics including the important role of language in his films, the influence of the arts, depictions of gender and class,
