DISCUSSION ESSAY POST: Examine the attached two shots from Alfred Hitchcock’s PSYCHO (1960) carefully. Study their elements of design (a) setting, décor, and properties; b) lighting; c) costume, makeup, and hairstyle) and framing (a) implied proximity to the camera; b) depth; c) camera angle and height; d) scale; e) framing and point of view). Using the very precise technical definitions and language you’ve learned from the textbook and videos, analyze how those elements work together to create implicit and explicit meanings in the sequence in which the two shots appear and the film as a whole. (You may have to go back to this sequence and rewatch it.) Your post should be *at least* 750 words — and often longer — to address this topic thoroughly.
Remember that you should write formally, using complete sentences and distinct paragraphs. Include a thesis at the beginning of your essay, define terms very specifically, referring to the textbook and course videos before you start applying them to the film, and support your observations with specific examples from the film and the textbook. Give page numbers if you cite or quote the textbook.
