Shot Analysis: Citizen Kane Orson Welles, director of “Citizen Kane”, is well known for his unusual directing methods that defied conventional cinematic techniques. Welles provided his audience with original forms of cinematography, narrative structures, and music. The scene I chose to analyze is extremely important to the plot of the film because Kane begins to realize that he is going through some serious financial problems. During the scene, Kane maintains a sarcastic mood, until he finally decides to surrender and signs the papers that transfer the ownership of his media empire to Mr. Thatcher. Throughout the film, Welles uses unusual arrangements of music that creates suspense for the audience.
First of all, this scene was filmed from a half submerged perspective that has a noticeable, but gentle sway to it that makes it feel as if the audience was in the ocean. As well this half submerged perspective has waves that continuously splash into the camera lens. What that allows for is the cuts from shot to shot in the water to feel seamless. When I rewatched the scene it got to a point where I could no longer distinguish what a cut was and what was just Chiron moving in the water. I also enjoyed how the scene begins with the diegetic sounds of wind and the ocean, but as Chiron and Blue get into the water all we can hear is a violin beginning to play, and as the violin begins to pick up Blue’s dialogue breaks the silence, and we regain the sounds of the
Best Picture of the year is elected if everything in the movie is perfect like the soundtrack, camera angles, or of course the acting. There were three things that made Fences the best movie such as the dramatic scenes to create a draw into the movie. Another important part that the Fences movie portrayed is the camera angles that give it a engaging effect. But the setting is what creates the whole scene of it being like a real life event right in front of
Here Hitchcock uses point of view shots for the protagonists Jeff, Lisa and Stella, while they look into the windows of Jeff’s neighbors, primarily that of Raymond Burr’s character Lars Thorwald. There is also a reverse shot which is also a P.O.V. from Lars’s perspective. One of the most iconic shots in this film is in fact a point of view shot wherein Jeff blasts light through the flash of his camera, which is intended to blind and impede Lars. This is in the point of view of Jeff and what it does is blind the audience for the few seconds that the flash goes off and contributes towards building both fear and tension as Lars gets closer and closer to
We see small groups of students leave the line vanishing into back roads and little shops. The teacher stays oblivious and sums to just two students towards the end. The camera gives us a view that cant be seen by an easygoing bystander however the artifice of the shot does not part us from the scene. Rather, the view from above turns out to be part of the joke that we too take part in, hoodwinking the teacher alongside the students by the unmistakable control of the tracking shot. Another scene is the genuine emotion when the jail van heads out from the camera.
Spielberg's first major directorial effort was The Sugarland Express, with Goldie Hawn, a film that marked him as a rising star. It was his next effort, however, that made him an international superstar among directors: Jaws. This classic shark attack tale started the tradition of the summer blockbuster or, at least, he was credited with starting the tradition. His next film was the classic Close Encounters of the Third Kind, a unique and original UFO story that remains a classic. In 1978, Spielberg produced his first film, the forgettable I Wanna Hold Your Hand, and followed that effort with Used Cars, a critically acclaimed, but mostly forgotten, Kurt Russell\Jack Warden comedy about devious used-car dealers.

To is known for his stark Hong Kong thrillers, however, Sparrow, which took three years to produce, reflects a more light-hearted image than his preceding films.

The group dominates the streets of Hong Kong, precisely executing their actions thanks to their expertise in the craft.
