Evaluation 3

What Kind of Media Institution Might Distribute Your


Identity,2003, Directed by James Mangold.

 The opening sequence of the film begins in a dark room where their is only the use of artificial light which comes from a lamp as the sequence goes their a loads of props which appear to be newspaper cut outs are spread across a table which appear to articles from a newspaper which seem to display an accident which recently happened and this is clear for the audience to see because their are close up shots taken of the newspaper which look brownish which give the audience the idea that the film is set in the olden times. Their are diegetic sounds of thunder in the background add the sense of a thriller to the film or horror because that effect is used to make the audience fill scared which is why it is put horror films because it makes the film more scary or adds anticipation to the film . The non diegetic sound is the sound of music in the background which adds suspense to film with its fast and up beat tempo which puts this film in the genre for suspense thriller also in the opening their is a voice taking about something which sound like a series of events which will be considered as diegetic sound because he can hear himself when he speaks

Memento(Christopher Nolan,2000)

The opening sequence to Momento starts off with a close up shot of a picture in deep focus which is shaken about every 5 seconds and every time the character shakes the picture it becomes lighter which gives me the audience the idea that it is going backwards because of how the picture was once had red on it and as it is shaken it gets lighter and lighter.After the picture is done being shaken their is a vertical pan shot which slowly reveals the appearance of the character as he puts the now clear picture into his camera and takes of photo, their is then a quick high angle shot of the body on the floor with blood all around it.
