31. Effects of tempo.
THREE LITTLE WOLVES,
the tempo of the picture builds definitely up to the climax at the wolf
exterminator and then the picture shows a slowing tempo. (Kelling)
BAND CONCERT - The
tempo increased as the climax was reached. This was true both of the
tempo of the music and the tempo of the gags. (Pfeiffer)
In MICKEY'S FIRE
BRIGADE the musical tempo retards as the fire engine slows down.
Music tempo and gag tempo are used in conjunction. They pick up in speed
as the picture progresses. When the climax is reached, they slow down
for a short anticlimax. (Penner)
32. Connecting links joining
separate incidents and welding them into a closer unity.
WATER BABIES - The
trumpet that took the attention of the babies and called them first
to the pageant and later to the returning boats was a good example of
a connecting link. (Algar)
33.Good or bad continuity.
MOTHER GOOSE MELODIES
had a good continuity pattern. Although the familiar characters performed
separate acts, they were interwoven and held together by a method of
overlapping one acts upon another, the whole being welded by song and
The opposite is true of OLD
KING COLE where the characters were all brought together in a great
hodge podge of confusion without
an underlying structural plan. (Bianca)
THREE LITTLE WOLVES
is a picture with a well-organized continuity - achieved partially through
the use of the horn as a clever connecting link when the wolf blows
it to show off and in doing so calls the third pig to the rescue of
his brothers. (Algar)
THREE ORPHAN KITTENS
had excellent continuity because one series of events flowed into another
in smooth orderly fashion. They were three well developed characters
in a series of good simple situations and gags.(Brightman)
Bad continuity was exemplified in
BROKEN TOYS. This picture
was a conglomeration of separate incidents lacking in organization.
COOKIE CARNIVAL came
under the same category. (Brightman)
