Abstract

Many researchers recognise the importance of the role of cinematography in films. A cinematographer apart from his technical abilities can be a creative addition to any film production. The role of the cinematographer in support of the director's vision can develop narratives in films with an enhanced sophistication. Hence,s/he visually attempts to elaborate the narration and the field of narrativity for the audience in order to evoke the audience's emotions and deliver the necessary information via imagery. Overall this research shows the necessity for cinematographers to take an active role in the nuances of cinematic storytelling and concludes that the position of the cinematographer in film is absolutely crucial in the delivery of storytelling through the medium of film well beyond the delivery of narrative.
