The bone yard

  1. 1. ● Mise en Scene – a bone yard – we have had a glimpse of this before the characters saw it, its there as Juno climbs up the rock face just before this but no attention is drawn to it. Now they are looking at it through the infrared setting on the camera (a clever cinematography device to let us see in the dark).● Narrative connotations – another big turning point just coming up – something must have made this...
  2. 2. ● Cinematography – slow zoom in on Juno shows us that she is the one being looked to for leadership, she is in charge. This is the first time her leadership is lacking, she says she doesnt know which way to go.● Alternatively, the slow shot on her reminds the audience that she is responsible for this and she knows it – she has led them here (although she had no idea what they were going to find) – it ties back in with the shot of her as she puts away the guide book before they entered the caves.
  3. 3. ● Mise en scene working with cinematography – the sudden appearance of the crawler in the back of the shot after a moving camera sequence as the women start to panic and the camera darts around.● Narrative – this is the big turning point in the film, from Were lost and were in trouble to These things are out to get us and were in trouble (and were lost)● Genre – this is the big turning point to monster horror – there have been clear elements of supernatural horror before (Sarahs dreams) and action/adventure horror, but its monster horror that will drive the second half of the film
