2. Sound At the beginning of the sequence they have used tense music, however they have put a few pauses of silence. This creates tension and makes the audience feel uncomfortable. Another sound technique used is sound effects. Sounds effects that have been used are; car sound, lighting and fire explosions (coming out of chimneys of buildings). 3. Editing In this opening they have used cross cutting. This is when you see a close-up of the building and then an eye of a person with a reflection of the view to then go back to the close-up of the building. This allows the audience to see more settings and get a feel of what 2019 looks like and how its different to our current year. Also, an insert shot has been used. The insert shot is of the out side of the building, to going inside of the building. This shows what the building looks like on the inside and outside.Insert shot 4. Camerawork In this sequence they have used many camera shots and angles. A long shot has been used. This show what the year 2019 looks like and gives an overview of the main setting, that will be shown throughout the sequence. Also a low angle shot has been used. This is used to give the effect that the audience is looking up at the building. It has been used to make the audience feel small, and to make the viewer understand that the building that is shown is a massive structure Another shot used is a close-up. The close-up is of the eye. This makes the audience realise that this person is memorised with the building and is intrigued with the structure 5. Mise en scene The opening of this sequence is set in 2019 in Los Angeles Props used are flying cars and building that have a different and unrealistic feel to show a big change over the years. Also the lighting in the room where the man is, is low key. This gives the man a mysterious and eerie feel. By using this lighting it makes the audience give a judgment in whether he is the antagonist or not. Another things, is that the title is in red. This could suggest violence and/or death. Costume wise the man that we have been introduced to briefly is wearing a suit. This could advocate that he is involved in authority or it could mean that he someone important. 6. What we have learnt Watching the opening we have learnt that the film is set in 2019, in Los Angeles. We have also been introduced to a character, however we are not sure what his name is and what relevance he has to the film. 7. Questions raised Who is that man (in the room)? What do the replicant look like? Why are the replicant banned? What relevance does the man (in the room) have in the film?
