Unformatted text preview: Film 46 Final Study Guide: Clips and Films Editing provides the syntax of cinema, The Godfather- low key lighting, reduced color palette in the interior office. Before the picture appears there is sound over a black screen I believe in America. Medium close- up shot, camera slowly tracks back, suspense because it takes a while to see his face. DEEP SPACE, shallow focus. Opening scene intercuts between two locations: the juxtapositions provide a contrast.

Camera distance adds comedia effect. Rhymetic result of editing is spuds obnoxious behavior during his interview. Poor Scottish accent places them out of a position of prestige.
