Semiotics - criminal minds

  1. 1.  Semiotics – Criminal Minds Shelby Edmunds
  2. 2. Editing - Hero  The heroes in Criminal minds get shown with clear shots of their faces/bodies  They are surrounded by bright lighting  They take up most of the episode with the majority of the shots focused on them as they are trying to work out the case  They are the emphasis in most shots as they are the key
  3. 3. Editing -Villain  The villain is very mysterious as you aren’t supposed to know who they are until the very end  The lighting is very dark surrounding any shots of the villain  The villain isn’t shown in as many shots as they don’t want to give anything away too soon
  4. 4. Music: HeroesVSVillains  When it comes to revealing a scene in which the villain is going to take his next victim the music changes to how it would show heroes  When he kills his victim the music becomes very fast and in a minor key  When the heroes have music in a major key  The music is more happy or relaxing as opposed to trying to cause a stressful atmosphere  It can be more slow, flowing, a nice piece of music to compliment the feelings
  5. 5. Characters - Heroes  People who play the hero are people whose appearance is encoded by our social codes  They’re socially central types who embody the dominant ideology  For example in criminal minds some represent : Morgan– a strong, team-player, attractive Spencer – smart, wise JJ & Emily - confident, happy, smart, attractive They have the lifestyle which makes the viewer want to follow
  6. 6. Female Character Penelope Garcia can challenge the stereotypes of characters as she doesn’t wear typical casual clothes she like to wear things that are out there. She can however been seen as quite girly i.e. wearing dresses and lipsticks JJ also challenges stereotypes to an extent
