Skam has so many close ups. Like, as soon as the location is established (which takes 2 seconds because we know most of the locations by now) the camera gets reeally close to the faces and I think that’s so cool. It shows that they absolutely trust the actors to always be on point with their microexpressions and that they don’t need to rely on any external stimuli to make the shot captivating.
They didn’t even use background music or noises in the latest clip. When we were watching the girls in the yard from Sana’s windowsill seat, we didn’t hear what they were saying, we didn’t hear anything, it was just quiet. Because in that moment, we are Sana and we’re having the exact same thought process as Sana. And we’re startled when Isak appears, just like Sana, because we’re so inside her head.
I wish more shows did this. I noticed that Arrival took this to the extreme by not just being close to the protagonist’s face but also blurring everything that isn’t her. It only works when you have a strong emotional connetion to the character, I think, so in skam it works like a charm.
Jin + self-confidence for anonymous ↳ Jin: There are a lot of fans who ask me, “How can I become confident like you, Jin?” For me, my breathtaking visuals are my main point. In my case, I focus on one strength, and continuously show it to others.
dog tags are normally used to help identify the fallen in battle. but what they wear around their necks serves a slightly different purpose. mainly it helps distinguish them from us. but it’s also a warning. “beware of dog.”
This morning’s warm-up sketches. I’VE GONE TO SWEET IGNIS HELL GOODBYE FOREVERRRR
[ISEB Artist’s Note: Real talk, though—would there be any interest in seeing *slightly* more explicit Specs fanart (tastefully done, of course) on this blog? Cause my head is swimming with naughty imagery right now, but I wouldn’t want to subject anyone to nekkid flesh unsolicited.]
