David Rademacher Analysis-
in these cuts Steven Spielberg empasized the mightyness of Jaws by first off adding music and second, having the intensity of the music build up as the shark gets closer and closer. the music dies down when the shark is out of sight. the music is played all throughout the movie whenever Jaws is about to attack.

the shaking of the camera makes the viewer feel as if they are experienceing the same thing that Hooper is in this clip.

when the camera shows a full body shot of the shark it really shows how huge it is. its one of the very few times you see the full body and it shows how dangerous it really is.

the low angle shots may symbolize how he could be in deep trouble and may never be getting out of there alive.

In this shot they camera switched back and forth
between the shark and Brody several times. This way
got to see the struggle between both characters. There are also several long shots in the scene. It shows
the overall view of what is going on so the watcher
can get a clear understanding. Also throughout the whole scene the famous
Jaws music plays to intrigue the viewer
