Money, film and narrative : a study of the role of money in the production of filmed narrative
In the study of Narratology, theorists focus on not only the narrative but also the narrator. This is the Who telling the What. While there are many philosophical views regarding authorial intent, and differing opinions as to "who" the narrator is and the many forms the narrator can take, filmed narrative complicates matters even further. For the purpose of this project I will seek to place a new definition on the latent yet prominent role of the true narrator of filmed narratives--money. Due to the complex nature of the film medium, I recognize that film criticism and the discussion of money can be applied to the many and varied aspects of film making, including but not limited to film as art, film as commodity, film genres, film styles, etc. However, I will be restricting my discussions of the role of money in film making at its most simplistic levels: (i) The fact that money prescribes the very presence of an image on film, and (ii) How money influences the narrative represented by those images.
