FILMMAKING TERMS


Term: Mindscreen

« Back to Glossary Index

A subjective shot or scene, which aims to show the viewer what a character is thinking or dreaming about. For this reason the latter variant is often referred to as a dream scene or dream sequence. The advantage of the mindscreen is that it allows the viewer to adopt the perspective of a character in the film, which is obviously not the same as his or her own visual point-of-view. Usually, a mindscreen is clearly marked with various stylistic devices such as, dissolves, fades, superimpositions, use of different colour schemes or black and white appearance, use of background music or sound effects.
