The enigma code is used in films to hook the audience
in the film. It can be used in the opening scene of a film
to help reel in the audience. The film may start with a puzzle,
which is later solved.
We used the enigma code in our film – in the second scene,
by showing clips from a montage. The second scene shows clips
of the character exercising, with a series of different camera
shots and camera angles and also, there is clips of the character
getting dressed with a series of different camera shots and
angles. This is used as a hook, as the audience will be anxious to
find out what’s happening in the that particular scene.
The binary opposition is something that helps establish the
relationship between two sets of characters e.g. bad and
good. This helps us understand the difference between
them; who the good person is and who the bad person is.
This is crucial as we cannot see the perception of good
without the perception of bad.
In our film we used binary opposition. We have students vs.
a teacher. This is useful as it helps establish the relationship
between the two making the film more interesting.
The equilibrium is the casual transformation of the scenes.
It may start of neutral, then slowly build tension, and at
the end it will go back to the neutral state.
Our film’s structure challenges the conventions of films, as
in the first two scenes we start off with a puzzle, rather than
starting in a neutral state. In the middle of the film there is a
series of clips from a montage which builds tension, this is
used as a puzzle to make the audience feel confused and
anxious about what is going on. The scene then goes into a
neutral state in the third scene but, ends with a dramatic
