The image in early cinema : form and material by Joshua Yumibe( )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Image in Early Cinema, the contributors examine intersections between early cinematic form, technology, theory, practice, and broader modes of visual culture. They argue that early cinema emerged within a visual culture composed of a variety of traditions in art, science, education, and image making. Even as methods of motion picture production and distribution materialized, they drew from and challenged practices and conventions in other mediums. This rich visual culture produced a complicated, overlapping network of image-making traditions, innovations, and borrowing among painting, tableaux vivants, photography, and other pictorial and projection practices. Using a variety of concepts and theories, the contributors explore these crisscrossing traditions and work against an essentialist notion of media to conceptualize the dynamic interrelationship between images and their context--back cover
Performing new media, 1890-1915 by Kaveh Askari( )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,018 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the years before the First World War, showmen and women, entrepreneurs, educators and scientists used magic lanterns and cinematographs in a variety of contexts and venues. The use of these silent screen technologies to deliver diverse and complex programmes usually demanded audio accompaniment, so these events were effectively always performances. Projectionists, exhibitors, onstage talent, musical accompanists, backstage crews - all contributed to performances that could include live music, song, lectures, narration and sound effects in union with projected imagery. In addition, these performances often borrowed from parallel practices, such as shadow plays and tableaux vivants, and were influenced by social and cultural forces, such as censorship or reform movements. This collection of essays considers the various ways in which different image practices at the turn of the twentieth century were performed and in turn shaped performances on and beside the screen.

Chromatic modernity : color, cinema, and media of the 1920s by Sarah Street( )

11 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 930 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Chromatic Modernity, Sarah Street and Joshua Yumibe provide a fascinating history of the use of color in film and consumer goods during the 1920s. They contextualize color's role in film, other art forms, and consumer culture to produce a comprehensive, comparative study that situates color cinema firmly within the culture of its time. With advances in technology, the use of color surged internationally and was applied to consumer goods, buildings, magazines, neon advertisements, and theatrical performances creating an exciting, chromatically rich visual culture. The use of color was not without its controversies, and the authors examine the intense debates during this period about color and its artistic, scientific, philosophical, and educational significance. Drawing on archives in the history of film, popular culture, and advertising, the authors consider such topics as the rise of the 'color consultant,' the gendered nature of color, ideas of color psychology and consciousness in advertising and fashion, the standardization and experimentation of color in popular and avant-garde film, and how the rise of sound in cinema changed the use of color in film. Ultimately, the authors argue that this expansion of color across the international media environment demonstrates the extent to which it was forging new ways of looking at and experiencing the modern world"--
Provenance and early cinema by Joanne Bernardi( )

4 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As material artifacts, these film fragments are central to cinema history, perhaps more than ever in our digital age of easy copying and sharing. If a digital copy is previewed before preservation or is shared with a researcher outside the purview of a film archive, knowledge about how the artifact was collected, circulated, and repurposed threatens to become obscured. When the question of origin is overlooked, the story can be lost. Concerned contributors in Provenance and Early Cinema challenge scholars digging through film archives to ask, "How did these moving images get here for me to see them?" This volume, which features the conference proceedings from Domitor, the International Society for the Study of Early Cinema, 2018, questions preservation, attribution, and patterns of reuse in order to explore singular artifacts with long and circuitous lives." --
Fantasia of color in early cinema by Tom Gunning( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We normally think of early film as being black and white, but the first color cinematography appeared as early as the first decade of the twentieth century. In this book, the editors present a treasure trove of early color film images from the archives of EYE Film Institute Netherlands, bringing to life their rich hues and forgotten splendor. Carefully selecting and reproducing frames from movies made before World War I, Fossati, Gunning, and Yumibe share the images here in a full range of tones and colors. Accompanying essays discuss the history of early film and the technical processes that filmmakers employed to capture these fascinating images, while other contributions explore preservation techniques and describe the visual delights that early film has offered audiences, then and now. Featuring one hundred and fifty color illustrations for readers to examine and enjoy

Chromatic Modernity : Color, Cinema, and Media of the 1920s by Sarah Street( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The era of silent film, long seen as black and white, has been revealed in recent scholarship as bursting with color. Yet the 1920s remain thought of as a transitional decade between early cinema and the rise of Technicolor—despite the fact that new color technologies used in film, advertising, fashion, and industry reshaped cinema and consumer culture. In Chromatic Modernity, Sarah Street and Joshua Yumibe provide a revelatory history of how the use of color in film during the 1920s played a key role in creating a chromatically vibrant culture.Focusing on the final decade of silent film, Street and Yumibe portray the 1920s as a pivotal and profoundly chromatic period of cosmopolitan exchange, collaboration, and experimentation in and around cinema. Chromatic Modernity explores contemporary debates over color’s artistic, scientific, philosophical, and educational significance. It examines a wide range of European and American films, including Opus 1 (1921), L’Inhumaine (1923), Die Nibelungen (1924), The Phantom of the Opera (1925), The Lodger (1927), Napoléon (1927), and Dracula (1932). A comprehensive, comparative study that situates film among developments in art, color science, and industry, Chromatic Modernity reveals the role of color cinema in forging new ways of looking at and experiencing the modern world
Moving color : an aesthetic history of applied color technologies in silent cinema by Joshua Yumibe( )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the aesthetic history of color in silent cinema. Specifically, it focuses on the manual application of color to the filmic image through the applied-color processes of tinting, toning, stenciling, and hand coloring. Through exploring the emergence of these techniques in the 1890s and their stylistic transformation in films distributed in the United States through the early 1910s, this study delineates the wider aesthetic issues raised by color in the cinema and more broadly in the horizon of modernity that frames the emergence of the medium
