In the film industry, directors use many techniques to create the mood, establish relationships, create symmetry or lack of, and to better tell a story. The same can be said about the film “The Blade Runner.” In this film, the director uses many techniques such as the rule of thirds, color, leading lines, pan movement, angles, and movement to introduce the viewer to a very different world. A world that has many wonders, but also has many dangers. The scene begins with the camera being shot high in the air at mid shot. This gives the viewer time to take in the world and the surroundings. The shot shows a flying car among tall buildings. The car’s movements interrupt the leading lines in the shot, which disrupts the view of the surroundings, and makes the viewer remember that car. There are diegetic sounds in the background, which is the radio announcer talking, and it helps establish the world as a futuristic one. The camera then shifts to a low angle, which shows how gigantic the building are. This makes the viewer feel small in the world of the protagonist.
