The film’s narrative structure is, at times, difficult to navigate, partly due to Sunny’s dual role as a subject and first-time filmmaker. While the subject matter is fascinating and there 's almost enough material here for 3 documentaries, the fact that the film is produced, directed and written by one of the Abbertons’ themself presents much bias and controversy. A documentary such as this one needs certain neutrality, which never happens. This becomes a real problem for the film when it
These are so significant to understanding the work, that a reader of this script can recognize them, even if he or she has never seen a production of A Doll’s House. This story could not be conveyed properly without including the significant examples of spectacle in a production. According to Aristotle, there are six elements of drama.

Rationale This documentary script will explore how directors use cinematography and editing techniques in horror films to increase tension and create an impact upon the audience. To achieve this I will examine horror films over three decades and consider how cinematic techniques have been employed to involve and scare the audience. The horror films I will be analyzing are The Omen (1976), The Shining (1980), Let the Right One In (1982) and Orphan (2009).

The film Pervert’s Guide to Cinema is a great source for major concepts in cinema like illusions, reality, conflicts, observations, desire, etc. It is really interesting how Zizek explains some of these concepts and how he shoots in the same locations as the examples he uses to portray his concepts. One of the most interesting topics is appearances versus reality. In the movie, Vertigo Zizek talks about how appearances won over reality. Another extraordinary concept is the use of birds in the movie The Birds and how their attack resembles tearing up and distorting reality.
Regardless of my views on the outcome of this film, its content also has a lot of storytelling within its deep subject matter. Films today usually forego character development and story progression as improvement in technology and visual effects would be the only effective instrument in catching the eye of the audiences. It is rare nowadays that films would tell great epic stories, without the extensive use of visuals. Therefore my full praise can only go to the innovative technical aspect of the film balanced well with concise story
These findings can be applied to the film in order to work out what makes it a Gothic work. As an example of how the film uses visuals to further narrative and themes, I will take a closer look at how mirrors are utilized. When it comes to sources, Gothic as a literary genre is well researched and prevalent in literary discourse and there is also material on Gothic on film to be found. On Black Swan as a Gothic film however, there isn't much literature to be found but nearly all of it addresses the mirror motif in the film in some capacity. This is why I think it can be analysed in a way that is exemplary for the film.
For instance, the lighting in the scene is very dimmed and is being used to give attention to the Ophelia, thus it helps the audience to focus on the madness of her. Ultimately, both films use the film techniques to create the madness either directly or indirectly. These conventions are more effective with the extraordinary acting of the
This implies he is referring to African Americans. After that Chris is shown around the house by Dean. Dean tells Chris he is a neurosurgeon and Missy is a psychiatrist. He then explains the picture of Rose’s grandfather on the wall. Dean tells Chris his father was an Olympic runner, who one day lost a race to a young African American man named Jesse Owens and he almost got over it.
The most critical part of a horror movie, is the suspense. The Shining did a satisfying job when it came to each scene, having its own little twist. These little twists added up in the end to make the film as striking as possible. With these little twists in mind it brings an example out from the movie. This is shown by the scene in which, the little boy named Danny is in his bathroom talking to his invisible friend Tony, in which lives in Danny’s mouth.
