Script Comarisons

This scirpt comparison is between the script from the movie Sing! and its final product. I compared the first five pages of the script, which is around the first five minutes of the movie. It starts out with the setting being in a theatre and a the stage crew is getting ready for a show starring a character Nana Noodleman. Then she starts to sing a song and it pans over to the audience, showing a scruffy young koala with his father. Then a voice over starts from that koala, who is now a young adult. Then he is interrupted by an angry chimp that is calling his name and telling him to open the door. Then Buster Moon’s (the koala) secretary Miss Crawley telling buster that his staff is waiting outside for him and that someone from the bank is on hold waiting for him on the phone. Then he told his secretary to tell the bank person that he’s off to lunch. Then he rushes out of  his office through a hole in the wall behind a poster. Then he hops onto a bike and starts riding off to somewhere. Then it cuts to an alley with a teenage gorilla singing. Then a walkie talkie cuts in and the police show up. Then two adult gorillas bust out of a window and jumps into the get away car. Then the police start chasing them.

There were barely any differences between the first five minutes of the movie and the first five pages of the script. The only difference would be the last part. The script had the cops say something completely different than the final production. In the final production had the cops say nothing and in the script it said, “Hey! Hold it right there!”.

Study of Camera Shots and Angles- Riverdale

This blog post is going to be about the study of camera shots and angles for the first episode of the show Riverdale.

The first shot that you see in the episode is the establishing shot. The establishing shot is typically the first camera shot in an episode or film. This shot is basically to show you where the first scene will take place. For example, in this example, it shows Riverdale (the town that revolves around this show).

The next shot you see would be the Over the Shoulder shot. The over the shoulder shot is when the camera is over the shoulder of an actor/actress and is pointing to the person that the actor/actress is talking to. For example, during that scene, Cheryl Blossom was taking to her twin brother, Jason Blossom. Another example is in later scenes, where you can see the over the shoulder shot when Betty and Archie are talking to each other at Pops (a local burger joint where the main characters all hangout).

The next shot would be the close up shot. The close up shot is where you can see all the emotion in the character’s face. For example, after the over the shoulder shot with Cheryl and Jason, they do a close up of Jason. In the close up, you could see he has a slight smirk and then he nods. They do another close up shot a few seconds later and it shows Cheryl soaked because she had fell into Sweet Water River and lost her brother.

The next shot is the wide shot and the wide shot is when it shows the full body. An example of this is would be when the Blossom twins are riding on a boat across Sweet Water River. Another example is when Dilton Doily finds Cheryl soaked because she had fallen into the river. The final example would be when Veronica Lodge arrives in Riverdale and when she meets Archie and Betty at Pops.
