These five techniques are frequently used in movies and films. Using these five techniques in films and movies make the movie/film more interesting giving them more story line, more themes and adds more feeling and emotion to the film. To keep the audience more involved and interested in the film, many techniques are used through out the movie.
One Film I chose to compare and contrast with these five techniques is the film, ‘Edward Scissorhands’, I chose this particular film because it has a great deal of feeling in the movie and provides lots of emotion in connecting with the audients sometimes through only sound and design.
This happens a lot in sad movies when there is not much dialog and more sound to carry across emotion and feeling better.
These movies also have many different camera positioning’s and many different lighting angels. The other film I chose to compare with Edward Scissorhands is ‘The Breakfast Club’, I chose this film because it uses some quite different techniques compared to Edward Scissorhands and includes much more dialog in sensitive areas of the film unlike Edward Scissorhands uses sound and movement instead of dialog to deal with these emotions through out the film.
Comparing both Films
Films and movies have a major impact on society, many people argue that young people and children shouldn’t view certain films and others argue that certain things just shouldn’t be viewed. Effects such as violence, adult themes and horror can have several affects on certain people affecting everyone differently.
On the website: http://allpsych.com/journal/violentmedia.html they discuss the issues of young people playing video games and watching different types of media during there young life. ‘Everything that children see or hear in the media early on in their lives affects them in some way’, many people in society believe this is true asperity parents and older people affected by media.
There are ways overcoming these issues when having to expose your children to the world of media, you can reduce there time watching harmful movies and talk to them about special effects they use in movies such as when actors ‘smoke’ they aren't real cigarettes they use, they are fake.Impacts on Society
