Correction of Cinematic Reality in the Conditions of Actualization of Special Effects

Keywords: cinematic reality, special effect, poetry, mimesis, posture, spectator, witness, amusement, image-movement

Abstract

Almost a century of the existence of cinema could not have happened without the development of its unique language, which was gaining strength in order to embody meanings on the screen and provide a certain experience of being in the world. One of the important elements that ensured the reality of what was happening on the screen was a special effect. It performs the function of legitimizing what is happening from the point of view of the real. In other words, the special effect performs the function of making a spectator believe in what is happening on the screen and making a "dive" into cinematic reality. The article is a philosophical discourse on the topic of the special effects in cinema. The attempts were made in order to answer the following questions: "What function does the special effect perform?", "What kind of reality does it help to create and how?". An attempt was also made to comprehend the nature of this phenomenon, to understand its connection with other elements of the films and to designate the role of the "special effect".
