What’s your favorite POV shot in The Shawshank Redemption? For me it is when Red walks into the approval board room and the camera is his own view while walking. My second favorite is similar to the first one in in that is from the view of a person–as if the camera was a person– it is when Andy scratches an “A” into the soft stone walls of this cell. Maybe I like those extreme POV shots. What do you like?
For Homework: Read chapters 2 and 5 in our textbook Reading Movies. Make sure to learn the chapter 5 terms I put on the board. The bookstore has 12 copies (I counted them myself). And read the Stephen King story “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption.” You can use the link below. Make sure to print out the story and bring it to class. Also bring your book to class.
We will have a short quiz on Tuesday. Then we will finish the movie, and then Professor John Loughlin will talk to us about techniques.
