THE STUDY OF SUSPENSE IN SCIENCE AND EDUCATION DOCUMENTARY: AN INTERPRETATION BASED ON TEXT ANALYSIS
Science and education documentary primarily creates suspense through natural psychology, emotional transmission, and information gaps, which can be respectively referred to as natural suspense, transmitted suspense, and informational suspense. The construction of these three types of suspense relies on the subjective agency of humans. However, under the combined influence of factors such as source material, visual arrangement, and audience reception, their essence still distinctly points to real-life events in the objective world. The extensive use of suspense is influenced by external trends on the international scene, but more importantly, it is driven by the inherent characteristics of science, art, and entertainment within science and education documentaries themselves. These explorations are highly beneficial for the study of visual rhetoric in documentaries.
