Screening Characters : Theories of Character in Film, Television, and Interactive Media, Hardback Book

Screening Characters : Theories of Character in Film, Television, and Interactive Media Hardback

Edited by Johannes (University of Copenhagen, Denmark) Riis, Aaron Taylor

Part of the AFI Film Readers series

Description

Characters are central to our experiences of screened fictions and invite a host of questions.

The contributors to Screening Characters draw on archival material, interviews, philosophical inquiry, and conceptual analysis in order to give new, thought-provoking answers to these queries.

Providing multifaceted accounts of the nature of screen characters, contributions are organized around a series of important subjects, including issues of class, race, ethics, and generic types as they are encountered in moving image media.

These topics, in turn, are personified by such memorable figures as Cary Grant, Jon Hamm, Audrey Hepburn, and Seul-gi Kim, in addition to avatars, online personalities, animated characters, and the ensembles of shows such as The Sopranos, Mad Men, and Breaking Bad.
