This ties in with another technique Smith analyzed in the movie, which was size of shot. When Holly is just standing there, Smith observes that the filmmaker is using close up shot to show the reactions. He explains that this was used to show how the woman in the movie is still the ones that care about there loved ones and that’s their role. This differs from John, who gets shot with a medium size shot to show all of his actions. One last technique Smith analyses in the movie is Camera angles.
There is dark lighting both inside and outside of the house as well as tall plants that can be seen outside every window. These elements of Cinematography and Mise-en-scène work together to insinuate that he has no real way of escaping or avoiding the situation with Mrs. Robinson. Once the music starts to play, it becomes very clear what Mrs. Robinson wants. It has a very dramatic intro that works to insinuate something is going to happen, and then gets a lighter tone when Mrs. Robinson starts to talk. This tone insinuates
Yahweh Matuguinas Instructor: Graham Bell English 111 31 January 2012 A Summary of the Essay “Sit Down and Shut Up, or Don’t Sit by Me” In the essay, “Sit Down and Shut up, or Don’t Sit by Me,” Dennis Dermody states his observations of some of the audiences’ bad behaviors before and while watching a movie in a theater. Dermody also classifies some groups of people according on how they behave inside the movie theater. He calls them the “chatterers”, “krinklers” and “unending box of popcorn people” (183-184). Dermody describes the readers his habit of making it to the movies at least half an hour before it starts. He does that just because he gets amused by observing how the audiences choose a place to sit along with their bad behaviors the movie.
While in some instances the concept of door being a gateway into a movie, it can also be used to keep things from the viewer. The screen being used as a door can hide key information or characters off screen or behind the door. This is used to enhance the suspense and mystery of some movies and the characters that are in them. Just as letting us into the movie makes us feel greatly apart of the experience, keeping things from us and hiding them can accomplish the same goal. A very good example of this film technique is in the movie Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows.
Hedda’s interaction with the inner room illustrates a closer look into her self and her failure to individuate. The inner room’s placement plays a vital role in the play Hedda Gabler. “In the back, a wide doorway with curtains drawn back, leading into a smaller room decorated in the same style as the drawing room” (1).The way the stage is set up, the audience’s eyes are automatically drawn to the inner room. The shaping of the furniture and the rooms themselves tend to draw attention to the portrait of General Gabler. Since the inner room represents Hedda’s self, the audience is unknowingly concentrating on her self.
This enables staff to hear alarms and ensures a more timely response. When a resident attempts to get up from his/her chair, this means the resident has an unmet need. Always ask a resident what they want or need and follow through. Ask if the resident would like to nap, have a drink, have their position changed or be placed in a different chair. This will prevent
Also external noise influenced communication, making it hard to hear each other. Another influence could be the two nurses could have been meeting for the first time. Video 2 factors that influenced communication were : Space between the video camera and the presenter could have influenced communication, as a result she has to be facing the camera getting good eye contact. Relaxed environment meaning it was just the two of them and no real pressures which could explain the laughing and smiling. Video 3 factors that influenced communication were: The professional environment influenced the way she communicated using great terminology and a serious tone, one could argue that if she was presenting in a normal room her presentation could have been less
Although done in a subtle way, the motif of mirrors, symmetry and shiny surfaces is reoccurring throughout the movie. One may not notice it during the first viewing, but when you start to look at the movie in a more analytical and technical way, the motif becomes clearer and clearer. Often doors and mirrors are shown combined. For example, the shot of Jack and Wendy’s apartment in the hotel, where the camera shows a big mirror in the bedroom that blends with the doors to Danny’s bedroom. Also, in that same mirror we later see Jack (with Wendy during breakfast, and later with Danny on his lap) and in the end of course when the camera zooms in on that same mirror when it reveals that “redrum” spells “murder.” Also, when we are first allowed a glance into room 237, we directly look into two mirrors on the doors, which create the feeling that that room also has two sides.
The system was essential in maintaining the direction of movement during a film and so characters would not “bump into themselves”. To ensure the audience was always on the same side of the narrative action, the film had to be carefully shot and edited so the camera never crossed the 180-degree line. The development of the aforementioned resulted from Griffith’s background in theatre as well as his deep understanding of audience perspective. Griffith brought a new technique to his craft offering deeper meanings to his scenes. With the addition of “cut-ins”, Griffith broke down the standard distance between audience and action, allowing a closer look into the drama of the piece and the reactions of actors on-screen.
Offer an explanation as to why this is done/say what effect this has (eg The lighting reflects the naturalistic setting of the film and reduces shadows to create a dream-like appearance) and 3) Relate it back to the scene (eg The reduction in shadow helps create the dreamy appearance to reflect her high-energy state and to make the audience feel like they are living in a dreamy state). The Body is an episode from the American gothic television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, directed and written by Joss Wheddon. This specific episode is about Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) returning back home to find her mother; Joyce Summers (Kristine Summers), dead on a coach in her the living-room. The scene starts with Buffy casually entering her home; (from 00.25s) the camera always being at eye-level, starts from a medium close-up of Buffy walking towards her living-room. The eye-level shots of Buffy in a household environment, places the audience in her shoes and is symbolic to an average routine lifestyle, the background lighting has moderate-intensity to empathise the warmth and comfort of an ordinary home in what seems to be the afternoon; this section lasts five seconds before quickly merging into a close-up of Buffy’s face, this later reflects her shock from facial expressions, after she finds her
