Adamand Anthony meet for the first time: This is where Anthony had asked Adam tomeet him at a certain hotel. Adam gets out of the car where there is efficientlight, and into the building with dim lighting, casting shadows on his face.There is also a bit of an eerie tone in the music that’s playing in thebackground, getting a bit intense as Adam is about to open the door to the roomhe was asked to meet Anthony in.
There’s much anticipation, however the musicstops as Adam enters because the room is empty and dark. We can barely even seeAdam’s face. He sits on the edge of the bed as a silhouette. The shot of thebottom of the door is shown where the camera is zooming in. You can see littleshadows passing by from the thin line of light underneath the door. This istelling us that Anthony or someone is about to enter.
Camera is back at Adamwho looks nervous and stands up immediately in anticipation. Camera zooms in onhim in a mid-shot, then back at the bottom of the door in a close shot. Thislooks like Rhythmic Montage.
This continues until Anthony finally opens thedoor. He’s wearing dark clothes, peeking a little from behind the door, with alittle bit of light shining only at him, moving the audience’s eyes to himinstantly. There is a shot where camera is looking at Adam from behind Anthony.Anthony’s back is showing a in a silhouette. It’s a little bit of a top angle,with light falling only at Adam in his lighter clothes. This hints a lottowards the future.
That Anthony is a bit of a shady character while Adam isjust a nervous, easily intimidated person who doesn’t really want to get close.After their little chat, Adam starts to leave, trembling nervously. There islight only on his face, while Anthony’s head is shown from the back in asilhouette. This shows more that Anthony is the darker character, the one beingfeared. 2.
Anthonystalks Adam’s wife: Now this scene starts with a real close up of Anthony’sface behind a helmet where he watches Adam leave his house in his car, and hiswife starts walking on the sidewalk. There is a shot composed in a way whereAnthony’s helmet is showing from the back and blurred while Adam’s wife iswalking this way. It shows that she is the center of his attention right nowand not Adam. Then there’s the shot where Anthony is sitting on his bike in hisblack jacket and red and black helmet, leaning forward towards the camera. Thecamera is positioned at a low angle, making Anthony give out vibes of dominanceand confidence, possibly even an evil intent with the way he’s sitting anddressed.
The camera zooms in on him slowly. The camera follows Adam’s wifeafter that, from behind at first as Anthony rides past her. Now that he’ssomewhere in front of her, the camera follows her from the front, signifyingthat he is still watching her. As she passes by him, he starts following her onfoot, taking off his helmet.
In this shot, he’s way behind her, in the cornerof the screen, while she is much closer to the camera. By now the audience willknow that he will stalk her all the way to wherever she is going, but willremain at a distance as he is right now.
