Short Film Analysis: IN BLOOM

The film opens with non diegetic sound: a person doing a voice over to a computer screen, telling facts about population in the UK, it ends with 1: the main character. It then cuts to their bedroom, with more non diegetic sound playing over it, this time its rock music though. The mise en scene depicts a teenager having a repetitive life by waking up, going to school, going home and then going back to bed to then have to do it all over again the next day. It shows her beating herself up about it by calling herself names in her head shown by another voice over. On her way to school she appears to have been ran over by a car, the intensity of his scene is shown in the edit; fast cuts between the actor and the car approaching them until the screen goes black as the car is about to hit them. The girl arrives at school but everyone appears to be ignoring her, she is wearing all black, which suggests that she is dead because black has connotations of this as that is what people typically would wear to a funeral. The film moves on to her funeral, it plays more rock music because that appears to be her favorite genre, it is her funeral after all, she is pleading to have her life back. It then fades into her standing in front of the car again, then she carries on her day as normal, as if she had seen what would have happened if she had have died.

Year 13

As part of my year 13 work I will be producing a short film and creating advertisements for it such as a poster for my coursework. I am going to be working by myself and will be doing the camerawork and editing for my video.

To make sure I do this task effectively and professionally, I will research existing short films and posters, this will help me pick up some techniques to benefit my work.
