Mise-en-scène: Works by Audrey Collins Petrich (diorama & ephemera), Photos by Guillaume Pallat, and Painting by Lillian Bayley Hoover.

Stemming from the theater, the French term mise en scène literally means “putting on stage.” When applied to the cinema, mise-en-scène refers to everything that appears before the camera and its arrangement – sets, props, actors, costumes, and lighting.

Mise-en-scène also includes the positioning and movement of actors on the set, which is called blocking. These are all the areas overseen by the director, and thus, in French film credits, the director’s title is metteur en scène, “putter on scene.”
