Analyzing Film Techniques.
Analyzing Film Techniques
Though whose “eyes” am I seeing?
Is it objective (not linked to a character) or subjective (limited by a character’s perspective)?
With whom am I asked to identify? With whom am I asked to not identify? How do we know?
Where would I imagine the camera to be in these shots?
Is it ever above or below the subject of the shot? Tilted?
Is the motion of the camera steady, or is it unstable?
Do we see a significant number of either close-ups or long-distance shots?
How would I describe the setting of the scene? What elements give this setting a “feel,” or a sense of “place”?
What props or set pieces are present in this sequence? Are they significant?
How would I describe the costuming in this sequence?
What can I see in the frame of the picture?
Is my interest drawn to any visual element?
Can I see elements in the background, or are they blurry?
How far back can I see in the frame (depth of field)?
Are any colors/ textures repeated visually?
