Edward Scissorhands directed by Tim Burton included two important structures. One being the Salon scene with sound techniques and visual techniques. The other was the Ice Angel scene which displayed very actual light and costuming. The turning point for Edward was a scene being one of the most important and active which was the Salon scene. The music was very representative, Joyce see’s Edward as something special so that she thinks she can flirt with him a little just so she can stand out and be noticed because in the film Edward makes everyone feel special by doing things for them such as cutting sculptures of the trees for everyone, And cutting their hair and for the dogs. These represent what they wish and want. Joyce however wants Edward all to herself because she wants to be the special and noticed one. By wanting this, Joyce tries to attract Edward by taking her clothes off in front of him. Edward does not fall for it and runs out of the salon leaving Joyce feeling frustrated and rejected. The Ice Angel scene involved various kinds of lighting. This scene was done during the night, which means that it would be dark and scary but Tim Burton allows light to shine through because when Kim is dancing around in the snow that Edward is creating would like to spot only Kim in it with Edward. A romantic setting is two lovers alone in a gentle snow from the ice Angel. The main dialogue of Edward Scissorhand, namely conformity is carefully created by Tim Burton in order to confront the viewer with any dry part of being fitted in society. The representative code of colour and technical code of camera angles are only used to care the main dialogue, but also to make a clear normal of Edward’s difference to the society.
