  • The Seagull to go (Chekhov in 10 Minutes)

    It is a widespread prejudice that the Russian soul is as deep as Lake Baikal, as wide as the plains of Siberia and as fundamentally unhappy as the working class of all countries. In his classical play THE SEAGULL, Anton Pavlovich Chekhov proves this. - This was a joke, he naturally proves that ALL MANKIND is fundamentally unhappy, but see for yourselves. Michael Sommer and his Playmobil cast present a compact and entertaining summary of this great play. DISCLAIMER: WATCHING THIS VIDEO DOES NOT REPLACE READING THE ORIGINAL. It's just a summary, which means I have left out loads of things. I recommend reading it for yourselves, or, even better, staging it! It can be real fun!

THE TALES OF ANTON CHEKHOV - FULL AudioBook | Greatest AudioBooks - Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (Russian: Анто́н Па́влович Че́хов, pronounced [ɐnˈton ˈpavləvʲɪtɕ ˈtɕexəf]; 29 January 1860[1] -- 15 July 1904) was a Russian physician, dramatist and author who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short stories in history. His career as a dramatist produced four classics and his best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critics. Chekhov practiced as a doctor throughout most of his literary career: "Medicine is my lawful wife", he once said, "and literature is my mistress." Chekhov renounced the theatre after the disastrous reception of The Seagull in 1896, but the play was revived to acclaim in 1898 by Constantin Stanislavski's Moscow Art Theatre, which subsequently also produced Chekhov's Uncle Vanya and premiered his last two plays, Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard. These four works present a challenge to the acting ensemble as well as to audiences, because in place of conventional action Chekhov offers a "theatre of mood" and a "submerged life in the text." Chekhov had at first written stories only for financial gain, but as his artistic ambition grew, he made formal innovations which have influenced the evolution of the modern short story. His originality consists in an early use of the stream-of-consciousness technique, later adopted by James Joyce and other modernists, combined with a disavowal of the moral finality of traditional story structure. He made no apologies for the difficulties this posed to readers, insisting that the role of an artist was to ask questions, not to answer them.

Whether you know what it's called or not, you probably already understand the concept behind Chekhov’s gun. But since I couldn't find any other videos succinctly explaining it, I thought I'd try gain that desperate Explain-Like-I'm-5 revenue. So basically, Chekhov’s gun is a narrative device which says “don't put something in your story if you aren't gonna pay it off later”. Don't make a big deal out of a gun being on the wall, if that gun isn't fired by the end of the movie. Story. Whatever. It was coined by a playwright so a play is probably more accurate. Here's his full quote here, uhhhh, rifle on the wall… not going to go off… shouldn't be hanging there…. anyway. Here's an example of one of my favourite Checkhov’s guns: (I, Robot) In this scene towards the beginning of the film , the gun is loaded. And in this scene towards the ending of the film, the gun is fired. Set-up and pay-off, though Chekhov’s gun isn't necessarily supposed to be intentional signposting, it just means don't fill your script with stuff you aren't gonna come back to later. Every second in a story should be used. Don't waste your time. Don't waste your audience’s time. It's much easier to explain when a film does it wrong, as it just doesn't feel right. Here's an example of a Chekhov’s gun not being fired (Jurassic World) Here we see this character has a girlfriend. Here we see he still flirts with other girls. And then nothing happens for the rest of the story. I'm okay with this character being a shitty person who is unfaithful or whatever, but he neither faces the consequences for his actions nor does he learn a lesson. If the scenes establishing him as potentially unfaithful to his girlfriend were taken out, I'd have no problem with his character. But this gun was loaded, baby, and it wasn't fired. In the same movie, we learn that their parents are getting a divorce and it's causing grief. Then nothing happens. We never hear about this storyline again. Not that I really want to. But still. These scenes ultimately contributed nothing to the movie. Don't put pointless crap in your story, because unlike the real world, everything in your script should have a purpose.

It is a widespread prejudice that the Russian soul is as deep as Lake Baikal, as wide as the plains of Siberia and as fundamentally unhappy as the working class of all countries. In his classical play THE SEAGULL, Anton Pavlovich Chekhov proves this. - This was a joke, he naturally proves that ALL MANKIND is fundamentally unhappy, but see for yourselves. Michael Sommer and his Playmobil cast present a compact and entertaining summary of this great play. DISCLAIMER: WATCHING THIS VIDEO DOES NOT REPLACE READING THE ORIGINAL. It's just a summary, which means I have left out loads of things. I recommend reading it for yourselves, or, even better, staging it! It can be real fun!
