Inspired by our in-class session last Wednesday, Dean had assigned us to find a scene from a movie that follows the elements in film. The subject of film is a growing interest of mine, as film is a common use in photography and cinematography, and I am currently taking a film class. Last class helped me explore the use of a camera, and angles, direction, etc. It helped me have a better understanding/appreciation for cinematography.
So for tech task #12, I chose a scene from the 2008 Oscar winner for cinematography: Slumdog Millionaire. I had just recently watched this film, and made sure to pay special attention to the cinematography. I believe they chose the right film as it explores all aspects of film, as it uses lighting, mood, scenery and camera angles to it's greatest advantage. This particular scene was one of my favorites. Among it were a number of shots: medium shots,panoramic shots, close up, tracking shots, and worms eye view, to name a few. The story in this scene follows two brothers after escaping an orphanage, and their work on the trains. I think you'll enjoy it for it's innocence and its beauty.
