Filmmaking 101: A Concise Infographic on the 'Mise en scène'


The 'mise en scène' is a French expression that means "placing on stage", and refers to the arrangement of everything that appears in the frame: actors, lighting, décor, props, camerwork and costume. It is a common term used in filmmaking and theater, and it encompasses all of the elements needed to compose within the visual frame. Learning how it works is essential to every filmmaker.

Learn more about this concept and add it to your cinema 'know-how' through this infographic by Michael and Christopher from ShoHawk.
