Sinister music – drums sound like army. Establishing-Pan shot; sets the scene as very peaceful Arc de Triumph and Eiffel Tower, landmarks help the audience recognise the setting. Low angle shot of terrorist – makes audience fear him Arabic music suggests he is from the middle east High angle shot of child – shows him as weak and powerless Speaking in “Arabic” without subtitles – can’t understand them, makes us suspicious. Suitcase beeping, repetitively like a clock; time ticking down. Zoom on mother of child with realisation of danger.

Genre: Religious Mystery Thriller Choral music adds to the religious connotations. Very solemn, no diegetic dialogue and slow music. Pleonastic sounds of the ring clinking and the hammer and chisel. Low angle shot of Patrick McKenna shows the power he has, added to the surrounding, older Cardinals. Jump cut as the member of the papal house hammers the chisel into the ring and we see a close up of his distraught face. Only seems to use natural lighting, gives it a more realistic feel. Watch

Genre: Crime/Action:

Genre: Crime/Action Upbeat theme music, which builds tension but isn’t too overpowering, which suggests that it’s not an out and out action film Close up of Tango’s face shows his calmness under pressure Point of view shot looking down the road at the tanker makes it look like a police chase show, this gives away his occupation to us. This is backed up by the conversation on the radio Music drops and becomes repetitive to build tension Watch

Genre: Crime-Comedy :

Genre: Crime-Comedy First shot fades in, then back out, then second fades in. The gap suggests it’d a flashback, as do some of the black and white shots Music is soft and tragic The graphic code is shown backwards as well as forwards to show two contrasting viewpoints Ambient sounds of a crime scene; sirens, helicopters and the voices of an anxious crowd Use of security camera make it seem like it’s being told back by police. Match on action “look out there” and the shot cuts to another panning the crowd outside the building with police in the foreground Reflection of helicopter is fragmented to show the broken relationship between the two bank robbers Shown through window because we are quite a distance from the characters Watch

Genre: Film Noir:

Genre: Film Noir Orchestral music, stops when gun is fired to emphasise shock and silence No close ups used at all, adds mystery Low key lighting enhances mystery Chilling music makes the audience think something is about to happen Woman isn’t afraid of waking up the man, has some authority, anti-stereotype. She’s not wearing make-up, makes her less glamorous Mr Lagana’s face is in the shadow, hides his expression Watch

Genre: Sci-Fi:

Genre: Sci-Fi Watch Establishing shot from behind the character has a really impressive background and captivates the audience. Only lit from his front, but as we’re seeing him from behind he is mysterious to us. As the camera tracks and pans round to his face, we see his face lit and identify with him. Flashback starts with light shining on the camera, then pans away from the light to a room with low key lighting. Match on action of the girl turning to look at younger David, then cuts into an over the shoulder shot from behind David looking at the girl. Close up of his face shows a lack of confidence.

Genre: Comedy:

Genre: Comedy Police sirens throughout the establishing scene suggest that the location is Fast cuts in the action scene, of various establishing shots of location. Zoom out is synchronous with the rewinding sounds in the music. Over the shoulder shot of Rico Fast cuts used to convey the energy and speed of what is happening Choral music to emphasise heroism. Hitchcock zoom as Ali sees the boy run into the street. Slow cuts in action sequence to mock the action in the scene Close up of him as he is being shot at; sows that he is used to this level of crime. Shot of car bouncing dissolves into close up of Ali’s face with his eyes closed; suggests it was all a dream. Colours focused on: orange and yellow. Yellow is quite a childish colour, representing the minimal power of its wearer, Ali G Watch

Genre: Comic Super Hero:

Genre: Comic Super Hero Wind whistling; open space, silence, peaceful. ‘Back in Black’ starts to play (non diegetic), then we see a radio and it becomes diegetic. Colours mainly brown; emphasises Tony Stark in his clean black suit. Shot/reverse shot of Stark and the soldier, shows contrasting personas of nervous soldier and confident Stark Hitchcock zoom; realises his weapons are being used against him. Point of view shot as soldier gets shot Sounds get muffled and covered with an unnerving whistling, to show his fear Hand held cam as he stumbles around trying to find cover, shows disorientation Birds eye view of him bleeding on the ground, with a transition to sunlight, transition to light through bag with foreign language being heard.
