Film: The Kuleshov Effect

The Kuleshov Effect should be covered in your first semester of film study. Russian filmmaker Lev Kuleshov demonstrated this technique in the early 1900s and revolutionized cinema with some very basic editing techniques. By simply juxtaposing three different images with the same image, three entirely different feelings and/or meanings are expressed in the montage.

  1. And not just in the first semester, but in the first classs of the first semester. If you don't understand this, and thus montage, you don't understand cinema.
