Tools of Cinematography

Choose any film clip from the Movieclips.com YouTube Channel. This must be a clip from a film (preferably from a film with which you are familiar) – not a film trailer or a mash-up. After reviewing your chosen scene, explain how cinematography is used within that scene. How does the cinematography inform the setting? How does it inform the characters? What do the choices made by the cinematographer tell you about the mood at this point within the story? How does the cinematography contribute to symbolism and/or metaphors in the clip?

Your initial post should be at least 150 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
