Camera angles and sound essay hw

  1. 1. 06/12/16 Charlie-Ray Mitchell Camera angles and sound essay. In this essay, I will break down a scene from a movie into sound, camera angles and how it affects the audience and why it has been used. The film that I have chosen to examine is ‘Skyfall’ and I have chosen to use the opening sequence as my specific scene (You can find this scene at: https://youtu.be/tHRLX8jRjq8 on YouTube). Example of Diegeticsound: Diegeticsoundissoundthatoriginatesfromthe real worldwithin the footagegathered. Examplesof thisthatcan be seenwithin‘Skyfall’wouldbe;people screaminginpanic,sound of vehicles,glasssmashingandgunshots(eventhough the gunshotwouldhave beenadded lateron duringediting,becauseit’sinthatworld,itisdiegetic).The reasoningforusing diegeticsoundinmoviesistoensure the filmisasrealisticaspossible inordertocapture the audiencesinthe movie (e.g.tomake themforgetwhere theyare andmake themfeel like they are the camera as if theyare there insteadof justwatchingthe footage ona screen). Example of non-Diegeticsound: Non-diegeticsoundissoundthatisn’t apart of the footage capturedbutisaddedlateron via editing.
