Aesthetic Choices

i. Mise-en-scene

It includes the design of hair, makeup, costumes, lighting, and props. Included also is the composition of films' spatial relationship of characters and objects, their distribution as well as their organization.

In this movie, the fellowship of the rings is critically discussed and the Eleven City of Rivendell analysed.

The Eleven City of Rivendell

In the cast, the characters are surrounded by waterfalls, mountains and trees. This makes up the natural elements of the surroundings. The setting is idealistic and gives an impression of a sanctuary from danger or a Shangri-la.

The architecture in the surrounding reveals more about the people who inhabit the area. The buildings are made of archways, intricate lattice work and precise lines.

ii. Editing

In Lee's illustrations and Tolkien's text, structural interlace is obvious and play an important role in fortune telling, which are intertwined in the past, the present and events that are stylistic interlace and which appears in the restating themes, loyalty, love, kingship and stewardship. Pictorial interlace is apparent in the restating of themes such as stewardship, kingship, loyalty, and love themes. The pictorial interlace is continuous and is present in the physical aspect of the environment. It is a manifestation of motivation and varies depending on characters in question.

The film recreates different types of interlace, but does not incorporate Tolkien's characters and cross-cutting, which has increased the effect of editing in the modern film audience. Interlace is one of the most unique aspect of the film, it is a kind of structural interlace that represents certain motifs, lines of dialogue with variations. In the appendix of this paper, it is clear that the principal method of the interlace, which is unique to this film, involves a visual representation of a given event and a voice over from characters who are dissociated in space and time from the images that accompanies it.

It is not just restricted to the council at which the fellowship is established, but the entire council as covered in the film and involves private conversations between Gandalf Aragorn, Galadriel, Arwen and Elrond's (Emily, 2011).
