Simpsons analysis

  1. 1. Analysisfilming and editing of interviews
  2. 2. filming and editing of interviews• Framing of the interviewees was conventional and they were framed either to the left or right of the screen.• The rule of thirds was applied, the interviewee’s eye-line was a third the way down the screen and either a third in from the left or right.
  3. 3. filming and editing of interviews• Graphics in the interviews displayed the interviewees name and relevance to anchor what they had to do with the topic for the audience. For example, John Waters, filmmaker.• The interviewees were relevant filmmakers and television show creators and associates, for example, Seth Macfarlane, creator of ‘Family Guy’.
  4. 4. filming and editing of interviews• Like the Jaws documentary, the Simpsons documentary also started with vox pops. This involved people answering who their favourite character was, this emphasised the focus of the programme.
  5. 5. filming and editing of interviews• The conventional shots were used for interviews: close ups and medium shots.
  6. 6. filming and editing of interviews• The eye-line of the interviewees was crucial as it had to be in line with the camera otherwise it wouldn’t look right. Therefore, the position of the interviewer was important.
  7. 7. filming and editing of interviews• The light source was in front of the interviewee and this was done so that their face was visible.• It is very much a convention of interviews.• However, the light can be behind an interviewee in some cases.
  8. 8. filming and editing of interviews• The mise-en-scene of the interviews was relevant to the topic of the documentary, ‘The Simpsons’.
  9. 9. filming and editing of interviews• The editing of interviews was done in a comic book strip style as it zoomed out from one interview to reveal more then zoomed in on another to focus on what was being said.
  10. 10. filming and editing of interviews• The cutaways were relevant to the topic of the documentary, ‘The Simpsons’, and were often clips of the show or different types of bands playing the theme tune on various instruments.
