The six screenshots I chose is from an old movie Named Brenda Starr by Robert Miller (1989).
It is a movie talk about a comic author fell in love with the character he drew named Brenda.
The important things is I really like the way that director uses exactly same proportions to show how the character transfers from comic to real actress.
So in this 5 minutes project, I’ll mimic this way to lead the story goes.
The sequence I choose is when he died he said “rosebud”,before he said that, it was a long shot from far away to the castle, a bright window in dark night turned off. I like the symbolic the director uses about the lighting. Then when the snowball broken,the angle of the camera from the inside of the snow world to see a nurse came into the room, makes me feel that’s his own soul’s view. It is very interesting and special.
I would like to think more about how to use the angle of the camera and the lighting to convey my point of view.

(2/2) Busy NewYork, busy life.
I really like this music video bang bang bang from Big Bang.
The tunnel in the very beginning show the speed and the scene keep switching with people clapping hands in the same rythem of song.
I also like it when is uses a worm’s point of view. People struggled in the sands but trying best to get out of there and after that, it has a elevation angle to emphasize the coolness of them. It’s a very smart and interesting way.
The color and composition they use is really intense but definitely match this song.
The lights helps a lot to show the mood and the tone whitch this music video creates.
I really like it.
The excellence of this movie is about the dramatic tension created in the limited space between two people and two artificial intelligence, the deep meaning in people's dialogue and the deception behind the people and AI.
This movie has a lot of sarcasm and contrast, as well as symbolism. I personally like it very much. e.g. The beauty and vibrant green of outside nature vs. the cool and dark tones of the inside laboratory. The gentle narrator vs. the sober and cruel boss. They all push the story goes on and it makes people involved into it unconsciously.
