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) er must examine the following areas:

  • Camera work (shots, angles, movements)
  • Editing (hows 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 and lighting)
