How To Lose Friends...

...And Alienate People, WAS SOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!
not technically amazing, or anything, but it had an alright story and good old funny acting! ahah :)
I reckon it wasnt as good as Simon Peggs other films, Hot Fuzz, or Shaun Of The Dead, buuuuut better than Run Fat Boy Run
and that one with David
I wonder how happy Simon Pegg was feeling when he got to kiss Kirsten Dunst?

Mise En Scene

- Decor
- 3 point lighting; fill, key, backlight
- Deep space
- Shallow space; C/U
- Costume; personality
- Proectional background
- High key/ Low key lighting

I am very interested in how the costume effects how a character is portrayed.
For example, if a female characer was dressed in a mans suit, with their hair pulled slicked back, we would instantly not like them, whereas if the woman was dressed like a normal everyday person with their hair down and pretty makeup then we would
like them...

Practical Ideas:

  • Photo to scene
  • Panning
  • Pull back reveal
  • Dark voyeur
  • Hitchcock zoom
  • Montage
I was most inspired by the Hitchcock zoom and would love to use this in my own film!
I think this technique creates alot of atmosphere and suspense, and makes you understand exactly how the character is feeling. For example, as the background grows you realise that the characters world is getting smaller, or the feeling that the character is being swallowed etc.

Pineapple Express

Today, a few friends and i went to the cinema to see 'Pineapple Express'.
I must admit i had been a bit jubious at first, (as much as i enjoy Seth Rogan films, and fancy James Franco), because i was expecting a film really, all about smoking weed and pointless car chases. 
I got into the cinema, and although my thoughts were correct :P it was reeeeeeeeeally enjoyable!
the jokes were genuinely funny, and the storyline was a good one :)

top notch! 9/10! go see it!
