Love Actually

  1. 1. Love Actually
  2. 2. Setting and Characters Setting We see straight away that the first two minutes of the scene are shot in Heathrow airport where there are mixture of all different types of people showing all the different types of love between people. The films genre is a romantic comedy and most films that are British and the genre is a romantic film, they are usually shot in London and one of the first things we see in the film is that its shot in London. Characters The start of the film we see just normal random characters who are showing that the genre is about romance and love by resembling it. The use the actions of hugging, kissing, smiling and crying with joy. This makes us as the audience relate to their emotion. show how setting is established and whether or not it is linked to genre show if characters are established
  3. 3. Actors and Actresses This film is full of well known actors and actresses who have been in many films and have won many awards, who have all been put together to create the film love actually. - Hugh Grant - Liam Neeson - Colin Firth - Laura Linney - Emma Thompson - Alan Rickman - Keira Knightley - Martine McCutcheon - Bill Nighy - Rowan Atkinson
  4. 4. Sound In the first two minutes of the clip there is no diegetic sound how is non-diegetic sound used, because no characters are talking, the music that is played is not coming from the scene of the film and we cannot here any other sound from the scene. Non – Diegetic sound is used as Hugh grant opens the films by being a narrator of the story, telling us what the films going to be about. Furthermore as well as him having an over voice, the film also uses music at the start of the film. The music is instrumental, and is very classical. I think they’ve used this kind of music to represent two things.. 1. The slow and classical music shows a British culture 2. And the feeling of Love, by the soft music with Hugh Grants soft carming voice over talking it create a very special effect.
  5. 5. Font and Credits There is no font used at the start of the film in the first two minutes until the very end. At the end of the two minute after Hugh Grant have spoken about the start of the film, we see the words ‘love actually is all around’. The colour of the writing is white which reflects the peace between relationships of different people. The word ‘is’ is in the colour red, which is to make is stand out from the other words, the shows that they want to make everybody listen to what there saying and want the audience to believe it. The colour red other relates to love. The words fades out except ‘love actually’ which is clever as this is the name of the film. The word love turn in to the colour red to show everybody that these colours relate. The font of the writing is very simple, which I think connotes that the producers are trying to say love is simple.
  6. 6. About Love Actually The film Love Actually is a British based film, as its set in Britain, the language they use and accents they have are of the British culture. Furthermore the actors they have used are mainly well know British actors and actresses. Richard Curtis was born in 1956, he was born in new Zealand but is now a British Direct. He directed the film Love Actually, he is also a well known British actors who directs a lot of British based films showing the culture of Britain. He is also well known for the genre of romantic comedy as he also directed the Bridget Jones and Notting Hill. Additionally it was released in 2003 and making a massive amount of money, $246,942,017 in box office. It was produced by a number of British producers but was The Working Title Films production, budgeted at $45,000,000, was released by Universal Pictures, a massive American production company. It grossed $62,671,632 in the United Kingdom, $13,956,093 in Australia[and $59,472,278 in the US and Canada. It took a worldwide total of $247,472,278.
  7. 7. Camera Angles The first two minutes of the first doesn’t use a verity of camera angles. The film mainly uses the close up shot and also over the shoulder shot. I think the director has chosen to use these type of camera angle because it reflects on the genre. The Genre is about love and using the close up shot we can see the emotions and love on the characters faces. This also makes us as the audience relate to the films and the emotions on the characters. The over the shoulder shot also creates us as the audience to feel their emotion of love, which makes us like the film more and want us to carry on watching it. The editing used shows us different families, relationship and friends between them. It uses the camera movement of panning and zoom, it uses panning to show all the love that is around. Furthermore it uses zoom to zoom in on the emotion in their faces with again has a good effect on the audience. Furthermore it used sharp but slow cuts to change the scene of the film, to show the different loves.
  8. 8. Mise–en–scene -The characters used are all different ages, sex’s and races which shows that this film is based on reality and the problems that people have in life. -The clothes that the people are wearing are just normal, average clothes. The way they act we can clearly see the types of relationships between them. -The movement of the characters is very quick, which I think shows that there happy and excited which reflects on the genre of the film. The actions of the characters shows us that the genre of the film could be happiness or to do with relationships and love. -The lighting that they have used throughout the first two minutes of film love actually is just natural lighting which shows us again that they want the film to be professional and realistic -one of the props we see in the background of the first 2 minutes of the film, is a Christmas tree which creates that the film could also be based around Christmas.
