I will explore how the use of other cinematic techniques can replace the verbal communication to an audience  with a visual one and I will argue whether dialogue can show you that the camera cannot.

. Abstract

. Introduction

My living theory on shooting short films without dialogue looks to inform new filmmakers (like myself) on how relevant dialogue is to the core language of film – with the main focus attending to the subject of the core languages of films. The silent era was the first exhibition of the new medium that was film which contained a  coherent narrative theme. These silent pictures were proceeded by films like ‘The Jazz Singer’ (1927) and ‘Lights of New York’ (1928)  that used dialogue to aid the story- but is dialogue really that important in conveying meaning in film?

This dissertation, which will make reference to my newly finished  practice by research film ‘Stranger’ (2015)  will take focus on the topic of iconic films from film Auters including Alfred Hitcock and Andrei Tarvosky and their techniques with film making.  Taking into consideration the viewer’s understanding of connotations and the core narrative of my newly finished film, that contains no dialogue.

I will explore how the use of other cinematic techniques can replace the verbal communication to an audience  with a visual one and I will argue whether dialogue can show you that the camera cannot.  My aim is to observe whether I can attain my aim of improving my filming skills as a director through my approach to this practice as research/living theory project.
