1. WATCH: All That Heaven Allows, 1955, d. Sirk, USA, 98mins
2. READ: FILM ART, Ch. 5: Cinematography
3. WRITE: 500+ words closely examining and analyzing the cinematography of a scene of
your choosing from All That Heaven Allows.
Your close analysis should include relevant elements of mise-en-scene and how they
interacts and function with cinematography in the scene you have chosen – in addition to
more specific details about:
1. Lighting: describe how the scene is lit, how it makes you feel, and why – what
function does it serve narratively or emotionally?; take note of how the filmmakers
use highlights & shadows and the other major aspects of lighting (quality, direction,
source, color).
2. Camera Position – Framing & Perspective: describe the use of composition and
perspective in the scene; take note of how framing and perspective create meaning
in the scene through the relationship between camera-actor-environment; make
note of the use of focus, focal lengths and depth of field, as well as the angle / level /
height of the camera in each shot if relevant.
3. Camera Movement & Shot Duration: Does the camera move? Describe how (pan,
tilt, tracking, etc) and explore why; how does it function to serve the narrative and
emotion of the scene? How does it function to reveal or conceal offscreen space? Is
frame mobility dependent on actor movement or independent of it?
Introduce the scene by contextualizing it within the overall narrative/world. Then you
should detail and analyze the cinematic choices made by the director and cinematographer
in the scene: explore the meaning and/or function of these choices and how they serve the
narrative and work together with the mise-en-scene.
I suggest you go through the scene chronologically and break it down accordingly. Films are
constructed as real-time experience for viewers, and choices are made accordingly.
NOTE: When describing shots and camera movement, you must use the proper terminology
(i.e. medium shot, close-up, long shot, ‘tracking shot’, etc). Refer back to the power point or
our book if you need clarification.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
