Choose 3 compositional elements. Discuss their effects on the viewer and how they are used to tell the story in the scene.
Use this scene from the matrix to look for the two elements: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2E3JDtqHaVM
Examples of composition elements:
o Use of lines: Horizontal (represent calm), Vertical (tension) Angled (chaos).
o Value of light and use of depth of field.
o Set design and costumes
o Use of shapes in the scene i.e. triangles, circles, and squares.
Since everything in the frame is placed by someone there has to be an intent because it cannot be random therefore we must try to understand what the scene is communicating.Tags: analysis, matrix, scene
