I also think the knee group didn't mean anything, if only because I've been that drunk and done it to friends, then made a gross joke after. Really, I just think John is Drunk Trash, and there's SO MUCH BETTER to use in a discussion as evidence. If it was meaningful, it's something I'd consider the least indicative. John nodding off on the couch then slapping Sherlock is more drunk husband-y to me. Or maybe the entire scene as a whole, but not the individual knee grope moment,

*nods thoughtfully*

I have over 10,000 words written and I’m still not done. Props to me!! Now I have to do my English project on good old Benjamin Button (note the sarcasm). Oh, god. I’ve been planning this scene out the whole entire day (even in the middle of class once I’m done with my work) and all I want to do is write it. But this project!! And I have 51 AP World History vocabulary words to study for and print out 10 modern art paintings that I would like to recreate and modernize for a group photography project. For AP World!! Yay!!! ╥﹏╥ How miserable am I on a scale of 1-10? 11!!!!

Watch me do it though. I’m a savage so watch me do it.

i made a new inquisitor bc i want to finally do solas’s romance even though i have to play as a stupid boring elf to do it, and i’m sorry but look at her she’s so pretty… i am SO good at making girls

the whole entire scene from the battle at haven to “the dawn will come” to this part where you get named the inquisitor is TERRIBLE oh my god it’s some of the cheesiest, most hackneyed writing in dragon age history and i hate it soooo much but solas’s stuff, thus far, is pretty good

Analysis of the opening scene of ‘Insidious’

the opening of the first scene of ‘Insidious’ is a very slow panning shot, this builds up tension as we are unaware of what is going to be at the bottom, a technique in which is often used in horror films to build up to what the audience assume is going to be a jump scare. The shots in the opening sequence use the rule of thirds well, making sure that the audience can take in the miss-en-scene and to help them get used to this as throughout the film a lot of things are hidden in the background. The opening uses many panning shots to create tension, some panning into almost complete darkness. The whole opening scene is also entirely just one
The colour palette to begin the opening scene is almost entirely black, this (along with the music/sound used) helps to build tension and lead up to the initial jump scare, in which the only light comes from a candle, candles are often used as iconography in horror films as they can connote risk.This is then followed by a large, red title, the colour red is used a lot in horror films as it connotes danger and blood. After this, the sequence continues in black and white to create a tense, cold atmosphere and the titles continue embedded in the shots in red, which emphasises them and makes them foregrounded as they look very vibrant against the dark, cold background. The type face helps to foreshadow the supernatural theme of the film and they are slightly transparent, giving them a ghostly effect, which then turns into smoke, this could link into the phrase ‘there’s no smoke without a fire’ foreshadowing how the ‘fire’ in question (i.e the rupture of the film) is going to be cause by a supernatural force.
The non-diagetic music used throughout the opening is used to create a lot of tension, getting louder and intensifying at jump scares and then staying reasonably quiet but still unsettling, as due to the previous jump scare, the audience is expecting another.
The editing in the opening shot is minimal as it is begins to be just one panning shot and then turns into fades between each different shot, once again the fades are used to create tension as the audience will be expecting something to appear. The shots also appear to be slow motion, thus making it feel as though there is an expansion of time.
Mise-en-scene is used in order to set the scene of the film and to explain elements in the film so they are not needed to be discussed in the narrative, such as the setting, the boxes scattered around help to explain that the family have just moved in, connoting that there may be a sense of chaos. It is also used to establish the characters by showing the photograph of them. The first shot shows the little boy in his bed, this is done so that the audience take note of him as he is the main character.
