Is it still an 'other' industry in a world dominated by American Cinemas? Bollywood and Its Other(s) aims to compensate for the lack of scholarly literature on Bollywood studies by opening up hitherto unexplored sites or sites that are in formation. One of the most comprehensive volumes on Bollywood so far, it focuses on the aesthetic-philosophical questions of the other, Indian diaspora's negotiations with national identity, alternative reading strategies/research methods, marginal genres (sci-fi, horror), marginal characters (flaneuse, vamps), marginal gender (non-normative sexualities), marginal cinema (Hindi avant-garde), marginal language (Hinglish), and marginal regions (the Kashmir valley). It intends to address film scholars, South Asian studies researchers, cinephiles and lay readers alike.- BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9781137426499 Donation: Senses of Cinema Contents: -- list of figures -- notes on contributors -- introduction: Vikrant Kishore, Amit Sarwal and Parichay Patra -- Section I Exploring the Other: Cinema, Aesthetics, Philosophy -- 1.Self, Other and Bollywood: The Evolution of the Hindi Film as a Site of Ambivalence / Dibyakusum Ray -- 2.Bombay Cinema's Aesthetic Other: Hindi Shastriya Cinema in Retrospect / Parichay Patra -- Section II Diaspora and the Formation of the Global Bollywood -- 3.Transgressing the Moral Universe: Bollywood and the Terrain of the Representable / Sarah A.

Drawn to sound : animation film music and sonicity / edited by Rebeecca Coyle

Call No: 772 DRA Author: Coyle, Rebecca (ed.) Source: US/UK Place: London ; Oakville Publisher: Equinox PubDate: 2010 PhysDes: x, 258 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Series: Genre, music and sound Subject: ANIMATION; ANIMATORS; MUSIC AND THE CINEMA; MUSIC IN FILMS; MUSIC, FILM; SOUND; SOUND TRACKS Summary: "Animation films are produced around the world and attract sizeable audiences and much critical acclaim. No longer marginalized in genres such as children's or propoganda films, they are increasingly the subject of academic study. At the same time, attention has turned to the music and sound, which contribute to both the emotional impact and the narrative drive, as well as the marketing appeal, of such films. This ground-breaking volume bridges these two fields and also positions animation-film sound and music in the context of the screen and music industries. Animation experts like Paul Wells and Daniel Goldmark and film-music authorities including Philip Hayward, Ian Inglis and Janet Halfyard provide international perspectives on the history and aesthetics of music and sound in animation film.
Drawn to Sound focuses on feature-length, widely distributed films released in the period since World War II, from producers in the USA,UK, Japan and France - from Animal Farm (1954) to Happy Feet (2006), Yellow Submarine (1968) to Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005), Spirited Away (2001) and Les Triplettes de Belleville (2003). It spotlights important studios, including Disney, Dreamworks, Aardman Animation and studio Ghibli, and composers, both those who collaborate personally with directors and those whose msuic is used to provide period or mood atmospheres.

The bestselling author David Bret traces the development of Presley's film career and recounts the on-set cat fights with co-stars and studio personnel. He unearths the truth about the powerful hold exercised over Elvis by 'Colonel' Tom Parker, which revolved around Parker preventing a leak about Presley's relationship with another man from going public and then using this knowledge as a persistant threat to ensure his protege's loyalty.
Bret explores and hotly disputes the controversial allegations, levelled by Presley's step-family, that he had sex with his mother, raped his wife, held debauched, drug fuelled parties with groupies and eventually committed suicide. Above all, the author praises the nature and talent of the man who was - and still is - the supreme authority on rock'n'roll and romance.

Her films, including 'Chocolat', 'Beau travail' and 'White Material' explore connections between national experience and individual circumstance, visualising the complications of such dualities. Following a foreword by Wim Wenders, international contributors explore the themes she addresses in her films, such as kinship and landscape, neo-colonialism and New French Extremity. Original interviews with an editor, actor and two composers familiar with Denis's working style and with Denis herself, also reveal fresh facets of this intrepid filmmaker." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes list of illustrations, bibliographic references and index ISBN: 9781848859548 Contents: --List of illustrations -- Notes on contributors -- Preface -- Foreword: 'Klarchen'

The bulk of the text focuses on the work of directors Wes Anderson, Ingmar Bergman, the Coen brothers, Peter Greenaway, Krzysztof Kieslowski, Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, Quentin Tarantino, Andrey Tarkovsky and Gus Van Sant. Significantly, the anthology includes a discussion of films administratively controlled by such famously sound-conscious producers as David O. Selznick and Val Lewton. Written by the leading film music scholars from Europe, North America, and Australia, Music, Sound and Filmmakers: Sonic Style in Cinema will complement other volumes in Film Music Coursework, or stand on its own among a body of research.

Chanan's thematic approach takes in topics such as the documentary before documentary, how documentary film language works, the veracity of the image, the construction of the soundtrack, the migration of documentary to television, political documentary, censorship, first-person film making, and the relation of the archives to history and memory. Drawing on examples of documentary cinema in Japan, Iran, and Latin America as well as Europe and the USA, Chanan argues that documentary provides a crucial public space in which ideas are debated, opinion is formed and those in authority are held to account.

"The collection introspects, assembling the pop song into various guises and documenting how individuals dissemble the multiple roles that the pop song plays in all and one audio-visual moment. The song as: ghost, role-play, memory trigger, narrator, marketing device, translator, alienator, membership rite, etc." (Taken from the back cover) Notes: Includes index ISBN: 184150078X More info

He has taken into consideration the needs of television and the text now contains interviews with well-known TV producers and key TV personnel. It deals with every aspect of documentary and factual film production. Intended for the working professional, the trainee, and the student, amateurs too will find the breadth and scope of the subject stimulating. Nowadays when the film serves not merely as a tool of entertainment, but increasingly as a tool with a variety of eminently practical jobs to do, more people than ever before become involved with film production.
Public relations officers, sales managers, television executives, those in charge of works film units, organisations using films for fund raising for charities, and members of expeditions will find here vital information. The means and methods of producing factual films are dealt with step-by-step from the initial idea to the making of release prints and their distribution. The typical problems of the "documentary" - shooting on distant and remote locations, as well as the difficulties of providing effective lighting outside the studio - are presented in practical terms. Sound recording, both under studio conditions and on location, is covered in detail. The techniques involved in laying and mixing multiple recordings to produce the final master track are described. Especially valuable are those practical suggestions that the author is able to offer from his own long personal experience. These range from budgeting and obtaining insurance cover to dealing with foreign customs." -- BOOK JACKET Notes: First ed. published 1963; Includes index ISBN: 0240509158; 0240509293 (pbk.)

Focusing on the post-war period, the contributors examine the role of these elements in establishing and enhancing the feelings of unease, suspense and shock that are crucial to the genre. The book covers the various patterns of use and inflection in a range of scores - orchestral, popular, rock and electronic - and looks at how these relate to non-musical sound.

By integrating the music of Beethoven, Mahler, and others into their films, directors such as Fassbinder, Kluge, and Syderberg consciously called attention to its cultural significance. Through this music their films could reference and, in some cases, explore an embedded cultural tradition that included German nationalism and the rise of Nazism, especially during a period when German films were gaining international attention for the first time since the 1920s. Classical music conditioned the responses of German audiences in the 1970s and 1980s and was, in turn, reinterpreted in new cinematic contexts. In this pioneering volume, Hillman enriches our understanding of the powerful effects of music in cinema and the aesthetic and dramatic concerns of postwar German filmmakers."

Made less than a decade after the events it is based on, using many of the people involved in those events as actors, the film explored Melbourne’s ‘postpunk’ counterculture of share houses, drugs and decadence. Amongst its ensemble cast was Michael Hutchence, one of the biggest music stars of the period, in his acting debut.
This book is a collection of essays exploring the place, period and legacy of Dogs in Space, by people who were there or who have been affected by this remarkable film.

In Wagner and Cinema, a diverse group of established and emerging scholars examines Wagner's influence on cinema from the silent era to the present. The essays in this collection engage in a critical dialogue with existing studies - extending and renovating current theories related to the topic - and propose unexplored topics and new methodological perspectives. The contributors discuss films ranging from the 1913 biopic of Wagner to Ridley Scott's Gladiator, with essays on silent cinema, film scoring, Wagner in Hollywood, German cinema, and Wagner beyond the soundtrack.
