However on the DVD cover it is much different than the poster. Asthe background is very black and will smith and the dog are in the“light of hope”. Also the light is coming out of the title and the lightwhich shines upon will smith emphasis that he is the “legend”.
My first inspirational film that I have chosen is I Am Legend. As the film is more to the action/horror side the target audience is mainly boys aged from 18 and over.

What I have realised is that throughout the movie Will Smith has the same expression on his face. His facial expressions always shows the frustration and anger and loneliness. Through his clothes too you can recognise that everyday he wears the same clothes. Also in every scene he has his gun and his dog with him which shows the only things he has left in the world.
My second inspirational film is a drama which is 8 mile. It features Eminem which is more targeted at teenagers. Most teenagers now a days go through the same thing which is, A young rapper, struggling with every aspect of his life, wants to make the most of what could be his final opportunity but his problems around gives him doubts.

In this scene you can see the extent ofhow poor Eminem’s life is, by the waythe house is and the lack of things theyhave. The wide camera shot shows eachpart of the house This scene reallyinspires me because although he has areally hard life and does is not stablefamily wise, he is still determined to getto where he wants to be, and his hard lifeis not stopping his dreams.
The close up of this scene isvery effective because itshows the true emotion ontheir faces. Also the close upshot is showing the mothershands holding on to thechild showing just howprotective she is over herchild.
By blurring out everyone else in this scene ourfocus is only on Eminem and the expressionon his face. Eminem through the whole moviedoes not show any expression.
Through out the movie Eminem does not have any facial expressions.This shows the strong heart that he that he is not affected by anythingaround him, and nothing can stop him from getting to where hewants to be.
