Tim was bringing Edward home from the mansion,

Tim Burton is a very talented director. In his films, “Alice in Wonderland”, “Edward Scissorhands,” and “Charlie and The Chocolate Factory,” he uses many different cinematic techniques to make that film come to life. In all of these movies he uses different camera angles, lighting, and sound to show the mood of that scene. For instance, when Peg found Edward in the mansion the lighting was dark, the music was eerie and the camera angles were low to show off the grimness of the mansion.Tim Burton also uses more of these camera angles throughout the movie “Edward Scissorhands” to show the mood. For example when Peg was bringing Edward home from the mansion, the camera showed a birds eye view shot of the town. This showed how the city was bright and happy and also showed how the town was unlike where Edward was used to living. Another example of Tim Burton using camera angles to make his film come to life is when Alice was falling down the rabbit hole in “Alice in Wonderland.” When Alice is falling down the hole in “Alice in Wonderland,” Tim Burton uses a system of boom and crane to show the fast paced way that Alice was falling and how she was falling a far distance. While Alice was falling she also saw things like pianos and bookshelves. The camera angle that Tim burton chose to use followed her as she fell and also showed was able to show how deep she fell. Tim burton also used birds eye view shots in “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” to show how big the factory was. When burton chose this camera movement he was able to show the gloominess of the factory while also showing the size of the factory to add effect.Another cinematic technique that Tim Burton uses is sound. Most movies have sound, but Tim Burton uses sound to create effect like no other. Tim Burton Uses non-diegetic sound in “Edward Scissorhands” to show the eeriness of the castle. When Peg first walks into the castle, there is non-diegetic sound playing which creates a dark mood because of the creepy music. Burton also uses non-diegetic sound to show how dark and spooky the castle is in “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” in the opening credits, the spooky music plays making you think the factory is going to play a big role in the movie.
