Context
• Back to the future is an American 1985 Sci-Fi
franchise directed by Robert Zemeckis. The film
is based around a boy who is sent back in time
to 1955 where he try's to prevent his parents
from splitting up. The project back to the
future was rejected numerous times because of
the directors past failures but was then secured
with Universal pictures. After high
successful test screenings, the release date
was released July 3, 1985.
Camera
• The camera pans around the bedroom,
zooming in on various clocks that clutter the
table and the walls of the bedroom, this
would create a strange image in the
audiences head because clocks may symbol
various things such as time which is a big
part of this movie. The camera then pans to
an old tv that is turned on to the news about
a theft, zooming in on the woman presenter
and then carry's on panning past the tv.
• The low angle shot of a boys feet is seen as
the door is opened and then the
camera follows the feet as they walk into the
house.
Sound
Mise en scene
• Prop- this scene consists of many props that build a
picture in the audiences mind. As the boy walks into the
house he's carrying a skate board this symbolizes he is
young and efficient as skate boards are a quick and easy
way to get to places, this could also be a hobby of this
character. The clocks in the room foreshadow what is to
come in the rest of the film as he goes back intime
symbolizing the boy is key to the plot of the story.
• Costume- At first we only see half of what the boy is
wearing. The boy is wearing basic jeans showing he is an
ordinary boy, then later on in the scene we see a full
outfit of the boy which consists of a jean jacket these
were very stylish during the 80s era.
• Lighting- the lighting is lowkey at the start of the scene
and then gradually gets more high key.
• Location- The locations throughout back to the future
are varied as there is a very futuristic scene a very
vintage and old scene with props like old phones and
cars, and then a more present and realistic scene.
These scenes portray the films plot and helps to anchor
the scenes with the locations and settings.
