Through a camera and it’s lenses a narrative can become a film and have in some cases more clarity when it comes to expressing the narrative in terms of visualising the feeling that characters can have in their story.
Gutkind expresses that the narrative written on paper exploits human emotion with the creation of a story in a nonfiction sense which is a huge aspect of creative writing (Gutkind 1997). This can be seen in how a camera and a film set is able to bring a novel, book and script to life with the use of people, props and a set. A camera is able to process a story’s meaning and capture the essence of it along with giving the viewer moving imagery to follow without losing the main themes explored in the certain narrative. The darkening around the main object along with the use of contrast used in the image is to highlight the importance of the directors hand, the script and camera towards making a film.
