This powerpoint introduces students to the four main elements of film: cinematography, mise-en-scene, sound, and editing. It includes quotes from filmmakers, definitions and adjacent examples of each slide. It also features questions to prompt student thinking and highlights important film language and terminology. The focus on the content is on cult films. The powerpoint includes a myriad of shots from Juno (2007), Gattaca (1997), Napoleon Dynamite (2004), Bladerunner (1982) and The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975).
I have used this resource in high school English, Film and Media classes. I also make it available to students after class so they can review the terminology and examples for self-study.
