I also noticed that Carter plays parts of the music on the piano for the Coens, before planning the orchestration, so that they would connect them with certain sequences of the film. Also, the principal photography was amazingly done in this film (exterior long shots); I realized that they were moving the camera sometimes, but not in a dramatic way, which created great shots. What also attracted me were the landscapes that seemed really dramatic and oppressive; I noticed that there were no mountains or trees, only flatlands extending into the distance. What astonishes us, viewers, is that the movie is based on actual events. A car salesman “Jerry Lundegaard”
I’ve touched on it several times so far, but the use of shadows in Out of the Past stands out as a defining cinematic device employed by Tourneur. Obviously, shadows are ingrained in the fiber of any film noir. Deep focus, low key lighting, and expressionistic compositions are standard. But Tourneur goes above and beyond with his shadows. He creates beautiful compositions, but more importantly, he uses shadows to define and redefine the mood, and to tell the story.
Tim Burton contributes to the world of animation in the film industry and redefined stop motion . Lighting is an important cinematic technique directors can use to set the mood for a particular scene. For instance, high-key lighting is used to flood a scene with light, often making the set and characters appear happy and safe. In contrast, low-key lighting casts deep shadows across the set and characters creating a sense of danger. Burton makes good use of lighting techniques in many of his films.
The assertion that Tim Burton uses cinematic techniques to control the mood of the scene comes close to identifying a stylistic trait, though it is still fairly general. Extensive use of textual evidence of the effect of cinematic techniques from multiple films is a clear strength of this essay. Well-developed elaboration of the textual evidence and especially sophisticated transitional devices puts this exemplar firmly in the Exemplary proficiency band. The commentary enhances the specific evidence provided and is wide-ranging and insightful, showing a deep understanding of cinematic techniques and how they create specific effects in mood and atmosphere. The last paragraph brings the analysis to a satisfying and perceptive conclusion by returning to the central concept that Burton’s style is characterized by a desire to “control the audiences’ emotions, and twist the mood of the scene.” This control of the essay through organization and progression of ideas is supplemented by the precise use of cinematic vocabulary and generally sophisticated sentence structure and
Tim Burton’s use of non-diegetic sound in movies greatly contributes to his overall tone and mood. An example is the starting credits of Alice in Wonderland, where the music is mysterious and suspenseful. It is meant to make you feel like something big and magical is coming, but you don 't know what. The music foreshadows the entire movie in these couple starting seconds and helps with the mystery of sort of, but not really, knowing what will happen. Music during the movie also helps set the tone and mood of the individual scene.
“One person 's craziness is another person 's reality.”(Tim Burton). Burton is very imaginative, some might say that he is crazy. However, for him it is his everyday life, his reality. When watching his films, people will always be able to notice them, this is because he has a very distinct style. Tim burton is notorious for his grisly twist and fairy tale feel.

“There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.” – Alfred Hitchcock.Suspense is a technique used by film directors to bring excitement to both short and feature films; leaving the audience feeling helpless yet engaged. Alfred Hitchcock, a world-renowned English director, has long been considered the ‘Master of Suspense’(Unknown, n.d.). Hitchcock spent most of his 60-year career refining suspense techniques within his films. Narrative elements such as audience knowledge, secluded location, isolated character and fake scare, are also supported by technical codes and conventions such as camera shots, lighting, camera movement and pace of editing. Hitchcock believed the real terror is the suspense leading to the climax, not the
Tim Burton shows so many moods and tones in his movies through his cinematic emulation. Some of his movies, such as “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” Burton shows the effect of a more realistic movie where Charlie wanted to sell the ticket for money and not experience a once in a lifetime experience. However, in “Edward Scissorhands”, he conveys a gothic style and tone through the outsider figure. Tim uses the techniques of lighting, sound, and editing to convey the effects of a more gothic and ominous style. First of all, sound is an important concept in any movie.
Connell uses imagery to show the reader how intense and fearful Rainsford feels in the story. For instance, Zaroff first look to Rainsford was “menacing look” (17) This quote is imagery because it describing the look in his eyes did not change and it was a menacing look also. Another example for imagery would be when “Ivan conducted him was in many ways remarkable.” (20) This quote is another reason of evidence why the short story is imagery because the way Rainsford looked so remarkable. The reader felt intense because the room was so beautiful that it was worth giving attention. So to my conclusion to the most dangerous game is a imagery short story.
The war games, mind games, and the final battle were much more vivid in the movies. Special effects are powerful in any movie, but they were especially important in this movie as the scenes were so different from our experiences. The novel described the scenes, but the movie made you feel the emotions more strongly. This was really true in the final “game” when Ender realized he had just wiped out an entire
Contrary to other literary history works, “All Quiet on the Western Front” by Remarque Erich Maria is so unique because of the way it displays such a realistic view of war and the associated loss of humanity, innocence, and emotion that attend with it. Throughout this novel, Remarque proves his point that war is unnecessary, and dishonorable. Remarque’s focus is how one is changed and ruined after just a few nights in war, the effects of war, on everyone. The novel really emphasizes on the accumulating body count everyday, showing every aspect of how war is absolutely gruesome and such a waste of pure lives. Also, “All Quiet on the Western Front” shows how the position of being in war can change a person dramatically preventing them from returning
