3.9 Visual Analysis – Approaching the Task

3.9 Visual Analysis



Main Paragraph # 1

Main Paragraph # 2



Use SEXY Structure

Use academic terminology

Refer to the scene and how it affects the whole film

Drive your analysis by referring to ‘must address’ bits ***



Body paragraphs need to have the same director’s intention. Remember this intention is presented throughout the entirety of the film and particularly evident in these two scenes.



You must address two cinematography techniques (and give examples of these) and how they work together to:

  • Create an effect for the audience
  • Present the director’s intention
  • Position the viewer
  • Cause the viewer to reflect on societal issues.
