When shooting a scene we had to be careful of what meise en scene we were trying to give audiences. Connotations are everything, for example the dark background when shooting the old man adds to his enigma. The casual modern clothes also represent the time line.
The suit used was to denote age and experience, but also professional. I also made enigma by leaving audiences to wonder if he was old or dead, I left it to viewer digression. The casual clothes represent 2011, which is a contrast to the old man. The colours denote the youth and the old, the good times and the reflecting times
The candles can be used to connote many things: Death, romance, religion, love, fire, nature, th ese connotations add to the enigma of their scene therefore they give a different certain character to the scene when used.
The Jack Daniels bottle was more so to keep the song from looking like a pop song by keeping the connotation of JD to show a sad individual. Drinking and the hoodie represent a man a man who is sad and lost.
