Character Study

 Shaun of the Dead
The first time we see Shaun, it is in close up




Liz is wanting more from their relationship, but Shaun is obviously confused
Notice his expression in this over the shoulder shot
                    – how does Liz view him?




He looks unable to give her what she’s wanting…almost paralysed
As Shaun goes through his day, he takes no notice of his
                        surroundings




He is lost in his own world, from which he can’t escape
Even at the dawn of the apocalypse, he is
                completely self-absorbed




     Notice the shot here – shallow focus – what’s important?
Shaun is in focus – his lack of awareness is what the director is focusing on
But, also notice the angle – where is Shaun? What implications
does this hold for him?
Even when Shaun is alone (in close up again) what does HE see?




          Does he look pleased with himself?
After the discussion with Pete, notice how Shaun
     becomes asymmetrical again – a conflict within




Remember – his conflict is with himself: how to grow up, have a relationship, be a
good son…
Here we have Shaun in long shot – the director is asking the
audience to notice Shaun’s surroundings (Shaun does not).




Shaun is still asymmetrical – trying to figure out how to handle all
his problems (Liz, Ed, Mum)
And another day just like the preceding day…

Shaun




Shaun has no awareness of the growing disaster…he is still wrapped in his own limited
world
Another mix of shot & angle




Shaun is asymmetrical, and rather an establishing shot, as we clearly see in the light of
day what a sty their house is-- he’s literally made a mess of his life
A new day, but the same old routine…




Long shot with shallow focus – Shaun is clearly unaware (although the
audience is made quite aware) of the chaos around him.
And A classic shot – could Shaun be any more blind?
    again here…




                 (Notice the asymmetry)
Finally! Our man has made at least one decision!




Notice the change in him – symmetrical, mid shot, determined
face
Relationships
Let’s look at Shaun
and his relationships
with those closest to
him:
     • Ed
     • Liz
     • Mum
ED
   Best friend
   No job
   No girl
   No house
   No life?
Ed is Shaun’s greatest friend and greatest problem




When we first meet him, he is in mid shot, between Shaun & Liz,
literally
We learn right away that he is rude, crude, and obnoxious




   (notice he’s a tad off-centre here – possible self-realisation?)
But, he is a great foil for Shaun (as his opposite, he lends
humour and eases tension)




 Notice in this long shot the utter mess of the house!
Shaun’s great reaction shots are with Ed :
      Mid two shot – illustrating their close relationship
And they remain friends to the end
LIZ

•Girlfriend of 3 years
•Lives with friends (one of whom detests Shaun)
•Doesn’t like Ed (much)
•Wants Shaun to commit (“have a plan”)

*It’s worth noting that Liz changes her mind by
the end of the film. She is more than happy to
stay home and go to the Winchester to drink
every evening!
Liz is Shaun’s goal




He yearns to be worthy of her and not such a “loser”
When he eventually takes control
     and comes up with a plan…




See Shaun here in low angle – taking charge with Liz by his side
He and Liz become equals




    Symmetrical reaction/two shot
Mum


 •Loves Shaun, apparently her only child, very much
 •Married to Phillip for 17 years
 •Only wants Shaun to be happy

*Note: she calls Shaun by a childhood nickname
(“Pickle”), adores Ed (who adores her back), and
gives Liz her necklace from Shaun’s deceased father.
Lastly is Mum
Shaun loves his Mum – he goes to
   rescue her even before Liz




 This close up tells us how he feels about her –
 see the anguish in his face? In shallow
 focus, this shot signals that Shaun’s love for his
 Mum is more important than dealing w/Phillip as
Were you paying attention?

Shaun of the Dead Character Shots

  • 1. Character Study Shaun of the Dead
  • 2. The first time we see Shaun, it is in close up Liz is wanting more from their relationship, but Shaun is obviously confused
  • 3. Notice his expression in this over the shoulder shot – how does Liz view him? He looks unable to give her what she’s wanting…almost paralysed
  • 4. As Shaun goes through his day, he takes no notice of his surroundings He is lost in his own world, from which he can’t escape
  • 5. Even at the dawn of the apocalypse, he is completely self-absorbed Notice the shot here – shallow focus – what’s important? Shaun is in focus – his lack of awareness is what the director is focusing on
  • 6. But, also notice the angle – where is Shaun? What implications does this hold for him?
  • 7. Even when Shaun is alone (in close up again) what does HE see? Does he look pleased with himself?
  • 8. After the discussion with Pete, notice how Shaun becomes asymmetrical again – a conflict within Remember – his conflict is with himself: how to grow up, have a relationship, be a good son…
  • 9. Here we have Shaun in long shot – the director is asking the audience to notice Shaun’s surroundings (Shaun does not). Shaun is still asymmetrical – trying to figure out how to handle all his problems (Liz, Ed, Mum)
  • 10. And another day just like the preceding day… Shaun Shaun has no awareness of the growing disaster…he is still wrapped in his own limited world
  • 11. Another mix of shot & angle Shaun is asymmetrical, and rather an establishing shot, as we clearly see in the light of day what a sty their house is-- he’s literally made a mess of his life
  • 12. A new day, but the same old routine… Long shot with shallow focus – Shaun is clearly unaware (although the audience is made quite aware) of the chaos around him.
  • 13. And A classic shot – could Shaun be any more blind? again here… (Notice the asymmetry)
  • 14. Finally! Our man has made at least one decision! Notice the change in him – symmetrical, mid shot, determined face
  • 15. Relationships Let’s look at Shaun and his relationships with those closest to him: • Ed • Liz • Mum
  • 16. ED  Best friend  No job  No girl  No house  No life?
  • 17. Ed is Shaun’s greatest friend and greatest problem When we first meet him, he is in mid shot, between Shaun & Liz, literally
  • 18. We learn right away that he is rude, crude, and obnoxious (notice he’s a tad off-centre here – possible self-realisation?)
  • 19. But, he is a great foil for Shaun (as his opposite, he lends humour and eases tension) Notice in this long shot the utter mess of the house!
  • 20. Shaun’s great reaction shots are with Ed : Mid two shot – illustrating their close relationship
  • 21. And they remain friends to the end
  • 22. LIZ •Girlfriend of 3 years •Lives with friends (one of whom detests Shaun) •Doesn’t like Ed (much) •Wants Shaun to commit (“have a plan”) *It’s worth noting that Liz changes her mind by the end of the film. She is more than happy to stay home and go to the Winchester to drink every evening!
  • 23. Liz is Shaun’s goal He yearns to be worthy of her and not such a “loser”
  • 24. When he eventually takes control and comes up with a plan… See Shaun here in low angle – taking charge with Liz by his side
  • 25. He and Liz become equals Symmetrical reaction/two shot
  • 26. Mum •Loves Shaun, apparently her only child, very much •Married to Phillip for 17 years •Only wants Shaun to be happy *Note: she calls Shaun by a childhood nickname (“Pickle”), adores Ed (who adores her back), and gives Liz her necklace from Shaun’s deceased father.
  • 28. Shaun loves his Mum – he goes to rescue her even before Liz This close up tells us how he feels about her – see the anguish in his face? In shallow focus, this shot signals that Shaun’s love for his Mum is more important than dealing w/Phillip as
