The front side of the Feté music hall did not attempt to differentiate itself from it’s surroundings. The two main glass doors were tinted so one could not see in, and the walls were covered with dirt and mud. The two bulky bodyguards at the door were a welcoming site however, and as the large glass doors slammed shut behind me, I felt comforted that I had just secluded myself from the spooky
Lighting the exterior of most shots balances the interior so that there are no harsh shadows on any of the faces. When lighting an exterior scene with a wide shot, not much could be done to balance levels. But when the director goes for a close-up or a medium shot, he uses diffusion or bouncing light to hide the hard quality of light from the sun. Diffusion and bounced light is in the movies since the late 1910’s and early 1920’s. Keeping the exposure of the actor’s face allows the audience to believe what is going on.
The ocean is brighter and has lighter cast on it than the mansion. In the scene where Nick is sleeping on the stairs, light is used to emphasise on the sorrow on his face. Minimal light is used on Gatsby’s coffin; there is natural light from the windows and the very dim chandelier. The room is dark and gloomy, bringing a sense of sadness to the scene Colour Romeo is wearing colourful clothing to show that he was a person of free nature. The crosses in the church are white with blue neon outlines as if pointing towards a direction, in this case they are pointing toward Juliet, they have red crosses in the middle to symbolise love.

The American director, Tim Burton has a way with manipulating lighting, camera angles, and music to highlight his quirky, yet dark style of movies. Tim uses camera angles to direct the viewers’ vision to a specific setting or character to expose something from a certain character’s point of view. For example, in Tim’s movie, Big Fish, he has a low angle of Karl the Giant. The use of this cinematic technique is to emphasize Karl’s height, especially compared to Edward Bloom’s. Another employment of camera angles is in Burton’s Edward Scissorhands, when Kim was in the window of the inventor’s mansion, they had a low angle of her, which was used to show here as the townspeople below saw her.
Richard Connell uses figurative language in “The Most Dangerous Game” to create a suspenseful and eerie mood. In the short story, the there are many uses of figurative language to give it an odd and creepy mood. For example, Whitney notices things while he is on the boat and explains to Rainsford,“There was no breeze. The sea was flat as a plate-glass window”(8). This simile is used to give an eerie feel for the novel.
While the short story became terrifying as a result of clever use of imagery, Smooth Talk utilizes framing and acting to create unease. After being left home alone, Connie moves to investigate the loud car approaching her home. Since the scene takes place during the afternoon, the lighting outside of the house is high-key. In contrast, the interior of the house is much darker. The setting adds to the sense of anxiety within the scene.
Overall Burton’s dark style is obviously seen in his films like Edward Scissor hands And Beetle juice. It is very clear that the best ways he shows this is through low key lighting, music, and dialog. A dark and old house with no light gives a better example of fear than a glimmering mansion. Dark music helps enhance the mood of helplessness and suspense. Lastly dialog helps create a feeling of reality and meaning to the pictures and music that fly off the screen toward you.
The use of contrast and the play with light and darkness is fascinating. It has a great psychological effect on the audience. The Don Corleone’s office is submerged in darkness and the characters in the scene come in and out of the light, thereby directing the focus onto them. A very large part of the film is shot in low key lighting, to emphasize on the theme of the film which is essentially, the life story of the Mob in
He gives off this unique unorthodox dark style and theme of everything is not what it seems,or don’t judge a book by it’s cover. He uses lighting and editing techniques in his scenes to give you movies that shed a new light on the way we perceive the characters and scenes. Mr.Burton uses lighting in all of his movies to really show you it’s his movies because the way he uses it adds a spin to how we view it. In Charlie in the Chocolate Factory he portrays Charlie’s house as a dark dilapidated building that looks abandon like no one could live there or something could be lurking there. When he then shows us the inside it is run down and sparsely lit but it has the most loving, wise, and caring characters.
Melindas secret is out and about. Near the end people are treating Melinda like a hero and not an outcast. “You can hardly tell it 's a basement. It 's covered in carpet- ing nicer than we have in our living room. A monster TV glows in a corner, and there 's a pool table and exercise equip- ment.
Once Romeo believes that Juliet is no longer alive, he makes another rash decision to bribe an apothecary for poison. Later in the tragedy, Romeo sees Juliet dead in the mausoleum, and decides to express his love for her, then drink the poison. Once Juliet awakes from her deep sleep and sees Romeo dead, she takes her own life with a dagger. Both Juliet and Romeo’s tragic downfall could have been avoided if Romeo thought about the consequences before he murdered Tybalt. Romeo’s rash behaviors in Romeo and Juliet resulted in many negative consequences, and he consistently acted impetuously that impacted others in an unnecessary way.
Tim Burton creates tone and mood by creating scenes with effective camera techniques, such as including crane shots for tone, and adding extreme close-up shots. A director of a film is able to create their own visuals and interpretations to allow the viewer to see what the director wants, whereas an author must be descriptive for the audience for them to be able to create their own visuals. For example, in the beginning of the movie, Burton uses a crane shot showing Charlie running into his house. In the shot, we see the bright town with many well structured buildings close together in the background. In the front of the shot, we see Charlie running into his home in the dark, far away from the rest of the town, in a deformed house.
