I chose the scene “Waiting to Exhale” from the movie clips. This movie is a 1995 romance film starring Whitney Houston and Angela Bassett. It centers around four female friends living in the Phoenix Arizona area and their relationships with men and one another. All of them are hoping that one day they form a relationship with the right man. The director of this movie is Forest Whitaker. The production designer is David Gropman. The art director is Marc Fisichella.
Forest Whitaker overall role of this movie was to set the tone and interprets the scripts as he sees it. He basically sees the movie as a whole. He instructs the actors on how to say their lines, their facial expressions and tone. He directed his movies based on broken relations. According to Brailsford (1998) Whitaker indicated that this film “about knows that, no matter what happens, you can still go forward” (p. 33). Whitaker is directing his movies based on expressing himself. As Brailsford (1998) points out “expression is taking him in several directions: He's developing three different TV projects and, having sung opera at USC, says he'd love to do a musical.”Wherever storytelling takes me," he says, "I'll go there” (p. 33). Almost anything that happens on the movie set is subject to the approval of Mr. Whitaker. His overall job is to okay the final product of the movie as well as direct the actors.
David Gropman role in the movie “Waiting to Exhale” is to utilize aspects of production, art, and engineering to design products that are safe, operative, stylish, and of the highest excellence. He also works with departments such as sales, engineering, and marketing to appraise and establish design products for customers. He manages research on products utilizing clients in focus groups or surveys. Gropman reflects on products such as safety, size, weight, ease of use, color and cost when creating products.
