(2 seconds)<br />Shot 54: A black screen<br />THE END<br />The short filmed used a lot of different shots and camera angles. I’ve noticed from doing this shot by shot that the speed of the different shots got a lot quicker at the end of the film as the tension was building us to the climax of the story. This was when the guy got to the safe and started grabbing money out of it quicker and quicker before he fell in to the safe.<br />The film used mostly dark, plain colours. I think they used this to keep it simple as possible, so all of the audience’s attention and focus is on the guy. <br />Throughout there is a constant beeping in the background from the photocopier. This set’s the scene of being in the office and builds tension throughout. I think the beeping goes in place of speech as there isn’t one line of speaking in the whole film. <br />There are some point of view shots throughout as well. This puts the audience in the eyes of the guy in the office. At one point we see the door of the room with the safe in it which is what he is looking at.<br />
