Editing and special effects Editing such as shot-reverse-shot, match-on action, 180degree rule have been used to show themes in the film such as love between the two robots. The editing and sound work together to create meaning with the songs being quite reflective and slow setting a mood for the film.
Narrative The narrative is told through the characters and the script. The audience see it happen rather than it being told. Time is seen as normal day and night, obviously done on a much smaller time scale, the film is set over a week or two.
Audience The film could appeal to a large range of people because it’s a simple story with no real violence and easy enough to understand for younger audience. The main target audience is more for a teenager into indie films, or a less mainstream culture e.g music hence the soundtrack being from bands like Animal Collective and Girls, which don’t class as being mainstream. The audience are mainly being asked to identify with the character Sheldon as he’s easy to sympathise with.
Themes/Messages Themes include Love, Music, Friendship, Relationships, Cities The short film shows that some people will do anything for the ones they love, even if it means destroying themselves.
Titles The font is white and square, kind of representing the boring side of Sheldon, but as its on a speeding background suggesting a more fun side to him, maybe even a representation of Francesca. It’s dead centre of the screen and not taking up much room and stay on for 3 seconds. I think its quite subtle, yet still clear its there.
Sound This film has all diegetic non-diegetic and intra-diegetic sound. A lot of music has been used, especially since its one of the things that brings the two characters closer together. The main song used is a calm innocent song which is a representation of their relationship. Dialogue is a big part of this film. Silence can also be used to heighten the tension of the film, such as when Sheldon gives up his body and it reveals it in silence.
