This is what we have learnt this week.
This week, we watched 2 one short film clips, and how to analyse them as we are creating our own one min short film. These are the clips we looked at:
- Shots – movement, angles, type of shot
- Editing – jump cuts, style, pace, flow, narrative and dialogue
- Lighting – mood, saturation, colours,
- Mise en scene – What is placed where
- Colour – the use of different colours to show how the character is currently feeling at the time.
- Sound – dialogue, narrator, voiceover etc.
Examples: (for notes!)
elements within that scene:
- Directional shots – from one place to another
- Getting ready to go on the date
- Added social media text – computer, to the text he got
- Mirror directions, to going out the bathroom
- Close up shots
- Fast pace jump cuts – for movement, and goes with the mood
- Bright lighting – natural, tungsten and artificial (hard)
- Added foley sounds (door, hairspray)
- Happy ukulele youtuber music
- Dreamy mood as if he knew he was going to go on a date with her, but really he just got ready to speak to her.
- Different locations (tells the audience where he’s going next)
- Tells the narrative in quick way.
Second scene – Misplaced:
- Intense music
- Different angles (variety of them) – directional
- Change of music makes it mysterious and a fast pace.
- Jump cuts
- Close up
- Steady cam movement shots
- Far away shots like someone’s watching
- Different locations
- Blurry close up shots – focused on the phone
- Muted night lighting (makes the mood)
- Quick shots to describe the feeling of the character, being quick and then going slow when his misplaces his phone and looks for it.
- Grey colours, warm and cold.
- Subtle, and soft.
- The narrative is already told to the audience in the beginning, and then keeps the audience hooked to the story to find out what’s going to happen next.
