Doc analysis

  1. 1. ‘The Devil Made Me Do It’ is a mixed documentary, but also a self-reflective and fully narrated one as well. As well as that, this particular documentaries narrative structure is open, single strand, and non-linear. Throughout the documentary, I also identified various themes that are represented in this documentary as well. These range from things like good vs evil, power of the media and youth, to things like religion – callotercism – satanic worship.
  2. 2. During the documentary I also visualised many camera works being used. These were:  Low angle shot: - when it shows Jesus on the cross, from ones perspective, it could mean God against Manson (good vs. evil)  Steadicam: - this was used to follow Marilyn Manson but as well as that, it also helped audience feel close to the action as well.  Establishing shot: - this helps the audience visualise the various locations and helps to set the scene; e.g. where the crimes took place  Tracking shot: - this helps the audience feel as if they are a part of the action, throughout different parts of the documentary.  Panning shot: - this  Point of view shot: - this helps the audience to witness the attack from the nuns point of view; e.g. involves them. The Interviews: - were filmed in the right hand corner of the screen in medium close up. As for the mise-en-scene that occurred throughout this particular documentary, ranged from family homes, police stations and various streets, to train stations, arcades, hotels and church cemeteries. The sounds that were contained in this documentary, they varied from things like male voice over’s as well as female voice over’s. Other sounds that were used as well were fans screaming, people talking, dogs barking, as well as sorrowful/mournful music. The type of
  3. 3. editing that was used were mainly cuts, but there was also evidence of junketer position used as well; e.g. putting to things next to each other which wouldn’t go together; e.g. watch from 0:00 – 2:00 as evidence. Archive material was also used throughout ‘The Devil Made Me Do It’, from the lighting that shows Marilyn Manson’s half shaded and half clear, showing the representation of ‘good vs. evil’. Other evidence of this is TV columns, Marilyn Manson music, newspaper/paper cuttings, and Marilyn Manson fans. Graphics from the documentary ranges from the text that appears on the bottom left hand corner of the page, anchoring the pictures relevance to that part of the sequence; to the title with the inverted cross.
