How my Oc acts around Shiro
  • Shiro: Don't worry. You're safe. You have the paladins of Voltron by your side.
  • Oc: * whispers * I feel much safer in your arms.
  • Shiro: What?
  • Oc: What?
  • television shows: i mean, who needs lighting?? let's just not use any lighting. forget the lighting. oh, but add a whole ton of contrast!! yeah, do that. can't forget about those blurry flashbacks!! oh, and let's make things really grainy!! love that, too. and why don't we put the credits over really awesome scenes?? yeah, that's great.

“We declare our right on this earth to be a man, to be a human being, to be respected as a human being, to be given the rights of a human being in this society, on this earth, in this day, which we intend to bring into existence by any means necessary.” — Malcolm X, 1965

“Orphan Black” cinematography quibble: the breakup scene

The most painful scene in the show to date.  Well written and beautifully acted.  Dialogue is almost unnecessary because you can see every thought and emotion in Maslany’s and Brochu’s faces:

Cosima’s happiness on seeing Delphine for the first time in weeks is palpable:

OMG, her face.  Delphine’s been putting this off and she knows what she has to do, but she still can’t help clinging to Cosima one last time:

(Incidental medical quibble: you use the back of your hand, not your palm, to assess fever.  It’s a surprisingly sensitive method.)

The saddest, tiniest “I love you” ever:

And then, after Cosima shuts the door crying, Delphine finally breaks down:

And collapses against the wall (sorry, not a great screencap here):

But - and this is what bugs me - the very next cut shows a medium long shot of Delphine from the opposite angle:

Which IMMEDIATELY takes me out of the scene, because all I can think is that in order to get this shot, the crew had to reset the camera and lighting and poor Brochu had to play Delphine’s breakdown all over again.  Not cool.
