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)
