Close readings/viewings

close reading of texts/ close viewing of film media is carefully and purposefully viewing and reviewing media in order to focus on what the creative is trying to convey, the choices the creative has made, the role of images, narration, editing, and sound, and what the media's purpose might be. Close reading/viewing ensures that we become critical consumers of media content and that we really understand what we’ve watched.
