Other Ways of Seeing

Other Ways of Seeing

The first Festival of Tehran Mobile Film and Photography was held in May, 2013. It gathered films that regular people and a few “professional filmmakers” have taken with their mobile phones, or films in which mobile phones are the subject of the film. I was part of the jury of the festival. What attracted me to this festival has been a concern of mine for many years.

Documentary Film Clinic

Documentary Film Clinic

For some time we have concluded that the need to watch films and make films (not necessarily in the professional sense) is stronger among followers and lovers of documentaries, who participate in such workshops and screenings than among documentary filmmakers themselves.

(Characters and Films (about the presidential candidate’s documentaries

(Characters and Films (about the presidential candidate’s documentaries

Did you notice how much the films that introduced each presidential candidate resembled their characters and statements? Evaluating these reportage-commercials which were called “documentaries,” in terms of their structure or content is not my concern here

Iranian Documentary Film Market: A Historical Research

Iranian Documentary Film Market: A Historical Research

Only a small fraction of the large collection of Iranian documentary films are accessible to the public, and a few are available on websites around the globe. In this paper I am not asking why Iranian documentaries do not have a major market, but in the current in the age of “downloads” and the downturn for demand of, what is the current situation of this market and what is its history?

In the beginning of the film, “My Daughter, Baran, Farnaz” the filmmaker Raya Nasiri talks over images of her daughter’s childhood pictures.

نگارش گفتار متن نهایی (قسمت پایانی)

نگارش گفتار متن نهایی (قسمت پایانی)

به ندرت می‌توان فیلمی یافت که فقط به گفتار متن متکی باشد. در اغلب فیلم‌ها، گفتار متن با مصاحبهٔ توأم با صدای همگاه و صدای خارج از تصویر همراه است. به همین دلیل لازم است همیشه به بهترین نوع ترکیب این عناصر فکر کنید. یک راه مؤثر این است که گفتار متن را به واقعیات اختصاص دهید و از صدای خارج از تصویر و صدای همگاه با تصویر برای انگیزش عاطفی تماشاگر سود ببرید.

نگارش گفتار متن نهایی (قسمت دوم)

نگارش گفتار متن نهایی (قسمت دوم)

چیزی که سعی می‌کنم شرح دهم دو قاعده‌ی اساسی در نگارش گفتار متن است. اول، چیزی را که تماشاگر روی پرده می‌بیند و به راحتی آن را می‌فهمد و درک می‌کند شرح ندهید. دوم، تصویر را با گفتار متن تکمیل و تقویت کنید.

نگارش گفتار متن نهایی (قسمت اول)

نگارش گفتار متن نهایی (قسمت اول)

طی مراحل مختلف پیشرفت فیلم احتمالاً سرتیترهایی برای گفتار متن یا حتی گفتار متن کامل اما هنوز غیرقطعی می‌نویسید. در بعضی از فیلم‌ها، مثلاً مستندهای تاریخی، گفتار متن را باید در‌‌‌ همان مراحل اول کار تهیه کرد. اما در فیلم‌های دیگری که عمدتاً به مصاحبه و فنون سینماوریته اتکا دارند، شاید بتوانید بدون فکر کردن به گفتار متن، فیلم را جلو ببرید. اما به هر حال، زمانی فرا می‌رسد که باید گفتار متن قطعی فیلم را بنویسید. این مرحله درست جایی قبل یا بعد از برش نهایی است.
