Trailer analysis - mission impossible 3.

  1. 1. Why were certain effects chosen? Lighting & Colour: The lighting used in the trailer for Mission Impossible 3 is very precise. For the first half of the trailer, it seems that low key lighting has been used. This effect makes the viewer’s think that the film is mysterious and therefore this could encourage viewers to go and watch the film in order to unveil the secrets within the film. In this shot, there is a close up/two shot. This allows the viewer to analyse the expressions of both characters during their interaction. The fact that the protagonist is in the dark whilst there is low-key lighting which highlights half the face of the female, suggests that he is still on his mission and she is half and half, in the sense that she’s also a spy but her involvement isn’t as much ‘in the shadows’. - Throughout the entire trailer, there are two main colours used: Red & Yellow. - Red is used for many things such as the text, laser and it is also used as part of the mis-en-scene as one of the characters has a red dress on. - Yellow used for explosions. Examples:
  2. 2. The use of the colour red laser suggests ‘seriousness’, ‘passion’, ‘fire’, ‘anger’ but also ‘love’. These emotions link to the conventions of a spy film as there is a plot which is often based around some type of serious plot which puts them into danger throughout but there is almost always a female love interest through e.g. the bond girl in James bond.
  3. 3. Camera work: An extreme close up was used at this point in order to make the viewer focus on the object of the camera and the action of taking a picture. The use of this shot means that the viewer can start to piece together parts of the film. This shot makes the viewer believe that this film includes the theme of identity. The close up shot used here allows the viewer to identify the protagonist. Using this close up shot also helps the viewer to understand the emotion/mood.
  4. 4. The use of ‘over the shoulder shot’ in this trailer helps us to see how the protagonist interacts with other characters. Having a female that acts as a love interest is a convention of spy films. Near the beginning of the trailer. There is a crane shot used when the protagonist is standing on top of a building. This shot makes the viewer wonder who he is. This shot changes from a crane shot to a close up shot which then becomes an extreme close up of the characters eye. This shot allows the viewer to identify the character whilst also making us aware of the fact that this character is important in the film. This high angle shot which turns into a low angle; tracking shot intensifies the idea of falling for the viewer.
  5. 5. In this shot, there is a close up/two shot. This allows the viewer to analyse the expressions of both characters during their interaction. The fact that the protagonist is in the dark whilst there is low-key lighting which highlights half the face of the female, suggests that he is still on his mission and she is half and half, in the sense that she’s also a spy but her involvement isn’t as much ‘in the shadows’.
  6. 6. Editing: In this film trailer, there a lot of different fades, this includes fast fades and slow fades. There are also several cuts used throughout that jump from scene to scene (Jump cuts). Doing this means that the viewer has to wait for the best bits to happen because the trailer gives you a preview of a section of the trailer then cuts to a different section of the action. This leaves the viewer on the edge of their seat waiting to find out what happens next. The dissolve along with the close up shot used here allows the viewer to gain a further understanding of the genre. The dissolve suggests that the characters in this film are ‘undercover’, ‘hiding in the shadows’ ‘on the run’ ‘out of sight’. All these things conform to the conventions of a spy film and therefore leave the viewer satisfied that they know the genre before going to watch the film. The editing along with the close up helps the viewer to gain an understanding of the protagonist’s mood/emotion. This could also contribute to an understanding of the protagonist’s next motive. During this shot shown below, the actress says to the protagonist “What is it that you’re not telling me?” this is followed by a fade into the protagonists face. For the viewer, this could suggest that there is something going on that is having a bad effect on their relationship.
