Also shown in my pervious blog 'Intertextuality shots' i am going to compare 9 shots from from our thriller opening and our inspiration 'The Black Swan.'
This shot was inspired by Natalie Portmans character in the Black Swan as she stretches before her dance class. Our mise-en-scene was a dance studio that I regularly attend, so i got permission from the dance teacher to use it. The mise-en-scene is established so that the conventional idea of introducing location was successful. This shot is intertexualised purposely in order to show a clear link between our thriller and the Black Swan.
