    What is a scene exactly? In movies that is.

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Strategos1618, Jul 21, 2013.

    I wish to know what exactly a scene is, what the characteristics are, how to accurately tell whether something is a scene or not. The abstract or concept of a scene.
    I would also like examples if possible, perhaps from Kill Bill Vol. 1 if possible as I have it on hand.

    Thank you.

    I don't know how to explain a scene. I guess it is just a section of the movie/book where one particular event happens. If you want to get an example go read a play like Romeo and Juliette because they clearly show the scenes

    Are you talking in terms of screenwriting? Scenes would be determined by wherever you put the scene heading; usually, it's based on location/time changes.

    Eg. The Bride's fight with the Crazy 88 would be one big scene that's distinguishable to the final duel with O-Ren Ishii.

    In general conversation it's not so rigid though. What is it that you wanted to gain from asking this question?
