Scott Lord Silent Film: Battle of Elderbush Gulch (D.W. Griffith, 1913)

In addition to using closeups to isolate the actor from their diegetic surroundings and the particular background to the action of the scene, which, while viewing the emotion of the character as seperate in turn embeds, or immerses the character into the diegesis, locking and intertwining them into the word within the frame, D. W. Griffith would establish the relationship between character and environment as well through the use of editing and by varying spatial relationships, notably in the silent film "The Battle of Elderbush Gulch" through the use of the longshot and the use of interiors. The two reel film stars actresses Lillian Gish and Mae Marsh. Silent Film Silent Film
