textual analysis

Textual analysis is the process of breaking down a text into its various elements and studying them to analyse how meaning is created. When analysing moving image media (such as film or television) we must examine the following areas:
- camera work (shots, angles, movements)
- editing (how shots have been put together)
- sound (both digetic and non-digetic)
- special effects (if there are any)
- mise-en-scene (costume, make-up, facial expression, props, setting, performance)
