This week we had to write about the lighting and colours used in film stills of our choice, then recreate a still using the same techniques.
A problem I had when writing about the ‘Looper’ still was that I didn’t know how to explain what the effect was so I found the scene on YouTube and watched it a couple of times to understand what the effect was. The scene made it easier to see how the effect was used as it was a character seeing the future as a dream sequence.
When recreating the ‘Usual Suspects scene’ I didn’t use enough light so it looked really dark compared to the original and also had a shadow on the nose which makes it look sinister. I could of used more light such as a three point lighting setup to prevent that shadow and darkness next time.
