• Film: Blade • Year: 1998 • Director: Stephen Norrington

In this micro analysis I will be analysing the film Blade which was produced in 1998 and directed by Stephen Norrington. The micro elements I am going to focus on are Mise-en-scene and cinematography. I will be analysing everything in the scene including props, costumes, facial expressions, gestures, setting, codes-framing to determine how it creates meaning.

A long shot is used which shows people with their hands in the air, listening and dancing to music. This shows the setting of the film. The costume that the man who is walking through all those people is wearing includes a red jacket and a red hat. The color red indicates danger and violence. The fact that he is in a vibrant colour could suggest conflict with the vampires which is a key theme. The ironic thing is that he is the
