Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Linguistik, Note: 1,3, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Veranstaltung: Semiotik des Films, 5 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der Geschichte der Filmtheorie galt lange Zeit die Vorstellung, die filmtechnischen Mittel Montage und Mise en Scène seien getrennt voneinander zu betrachten, da sie auf verschiedene Ziele der filmische Arbeit verweisen. In dieser Arbeit soll es nun darum gehen, Jean-Luc Godards Auffassung von der Synthese dieser beiden Techniken zu stützen und durch den Nachweis der Austauschbarkeit der jeweiligen Ziele von Montage und Mise en Scène sogar zu verschärfen.Desweiteren werden die noch vor Godard gängigen Vorstellungen von Realitäten, die der Film ermöglicht, verbunden mit den damaligen Auffassungen bezüglich der zwei Filmtechniken, dargestellt und schließlich mit Godards These und der sich ergebenden Konsequenzen modifiziert. Die Grenzen der Wirklichkeit des Films müssen mit Godard neu definiert werden. Zur Untermauerung dieses theoretischen Rahmens folgt im Hauptteil dieser Arbeit eine Filmanalyse zu Stanley Kubricks The Shining (1980). Dieser Filmist aufgrund ungewöhnlicher Raum- und Zeitkonstruktionen und der damit verbundenen Montagetechnik und Mise en Scène hervorragend für dieseZwecke geeignet. Anhand konkreter Sequenzen wird demnach zunächst die Zeitkonstruktion unter Einbezug der Montage und im Anschluss das Raumkonzept unter dem Gesichtspunkt der Mise en Scène betrachtet. Anschließend wird aufgezeigt, inwieweit diese filmtechnischen Mittel untrennbar voneinander zu betrachten sind. Abschließend folgt die Betrachtung der Selbstreferenz des Films, die sich gewissermaßen aus den Konsequenzen der Synthese von Montage und Mise en Scène ergibt.

For many years now there has been an upsurge in revelation stories and alternative viewpoints on man's history. People such as Graham Hancock and Lawrence Gardner have brought to light many new ideas and many new problems. Now there is a new theory which is all-encompassing and clearly brings into focus a more sinister reason behind the emergence of civilisation. In his theory on Atlantis Graham Hancock is receiving much admiration and academic acclaim. Standard academic thought is more towards the spontaneous eruption of civilisation across the globe, with little or no explanation of why there are so many similarities between the cultures. Now, Philip Gardiner, in his new book THE SHINING ONES is set to turn even this upon its head. The theory is so simple that it begs the question, why has it not been thought of before? The reason for universal similarity of architecture, language, art, travel and religious belief is quite simply an ancient and secret religious brotherhood who have hidden themselves deep within the symbols, ciphers and codes of our ancient texts for hundreds of years. They held a secret knowledge and power base which spread with them across the globe. The very title that they have given themselves is hidden within the standard text and religious books we use every day -- The Shining Ones. Put like this, the whole thing can sound like an X-Files conspiracy theory. However the author has invested huge amounts of time and energy checking, researching and seeking the advice of academics. Now the theory is attracting the attention of historians who can see that the patterns are as subtle as this author proposes. The fact is, this theory does explain away all the problems with dating and variations that people such as Hancock have come up against. Many academics and especially Egyptologists are now turning to this way of thinking and with Gardiners spirit and broad knowledge in history and language the history of the ancients and the secrets that they hold are becoming more clear. There are of course dissenters. The author has been accosted for his standpoint and there are still those hardened academics and even non-academics who refuse to even listen. However, there is a major TV documentary in pre-production stages and with interviews planned across the nation on radio and TV the message may soon be accepted as a credible theory.
