The Sea Inside - post 3

The main thing I noticed about the directors camera technique was a pattern he used very often through out the movie. He would begin a scene with a Trucking dolly followed by multiple extreme close-ups, mainly during conversations. It helped the reader to follow the movie better because the sequence was very fluid. It also gave the reader a better sense of what was going on in the movie because the close-ups showed you a lot more emotion in the characters faces. I think the director used this sequence because it gives the reader a feeling like they are apart of the conversation. For example, when you first start a conversation you look around and check out your surroundings(medium shot,then you begin to talk about more interesting topics and you focus mainly on the other person(extreme close-up).
