MISE-EN-SCENE : PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL
COSTUME & MAKEUP
Coordinates with the setting
Can be passively visual or active in plot points or characterization
Function of lighting:
- Create illumination
- Provides action
- Set the mood
- Guide our attention
- Articulate texture and shape
STAGING: MOVEMENT AND PERFORMANCE
- Fort Charles, port royal (named in the movie)
- Palos Verdes Peninsula, south of Los Angeles. (real life place)
- Interior setting in the movie set in Raleigh Studios in Manhattan Beach
- St Vincent (in the movie)
- Windward Islands in the south Caribbean (real life place)
Setting creates narrative expectations:
The object is used as a motivation in film
Authencity in constructed settings
The prop used shown creates realism and authenticity to audiences
The influences of how pirates related with treasure
Interplay of settings and actors
The ships around Jack and the scenery dominating the scene instead of the actor
the ratio is increasing and for this part is about 1:12
Setting guides attention:
The appearances of Will and Elizabeth at the background cover up by the crowds draw attention to audiences.
Color creates parallel among settings
The color balance for these three places is parallel to enhance the mood.
Green screen scene
The scene under the sea is impossible to be captured as the walk so smooth hence it is the effect of green screen.
everything looks fine until...
There is a white-clothed crew behind Jack.
The sail fixed by itself.
There is an orange construction ladder under the hut.
Jet constrail in line with his eyes.
• The characters are all dressed in accordance with the period of time (circa 1700s).
• Based on the costume, we can see the different classes of people.
Costume and Character Change
How pirates dress (baggy clothes, belts strung across their chests, bandanas).
Lower class of people. (ie; Maids, Artisans)
Higher class of people
British royal navy. Can differentiate ranks by the color of their uniforms.
Captain Jack Sparrow
- Dreadlock wig, red bandana and lots of objects in his hair
- Shows that he travels to many places hence the souvenirs he collects
- The only character that wears a leather hat (tricorne)
Dresses according to the era. Shows that she is the governor’s daughter and her place in society.
Cursed pirates who show their true selves under the moonlight.
Gibbs was a part of the British Royal Navy in the beginning of the film, but then he becomes a pirate as part of Jack Sparrow’s crew. His role changes therefore, the way his dress also changes.
At the beginning, Norrington was a Lieutenant. As the years passed he is promoted to becoming a Commadore. His dressing changed (wig, makeup)
- His makeup gives a dirty, ‘worn’ look, he also wore kohl around his eyes, making him look a little bit like a hobo.
- Barbossa wears contact lenses which makes his eyes yellow.
- His makeup helps to portray his character who is cunning and nasty towards others.
- All pirates basically have the same basic makeup to give off a messy and dirty look.
- Since pirates live at sea, it shows off their dark skin and how dirty they seem since they don’t take showers.
Elizabeth’s makeup at first gives off a rich and classy look. Later in the film, her makeup changes to a desperate and determined look as she wants to save Will from the pirates.
It is shown in the character of Ragetti who has a wooden eye that keeps popping out.
It provides excellent modelling by highlighting the shape and contours of the subject.
It clearly illuminates areas, sharply outlines and illuminates characters, brings out detail and texture, and markedly separates light and shadows.
LOW KEY LIGHTING
It is where the lighting is more towards the grayer and darker scale and where the key light is less bright and does not dominate.
Lighting that comes from other sources that bring colors.
A highlight is a patch of relative brightness of a surface.
- Warm color
- Romantic ambiance
Movement on Camera
It’s a medium shot, medium close ups obvious in the movie. For example: in the Opening scene to express character body language.There are a lot of close ups to show facial expression and reaction.
Face is important! even no dialogue needed
like Jack Sparrow down here
Pirates of the Caribbean movies gave a realistic description of pirate weapons, lifestyle and costumes.
Do not expect scenes to be realistic
Entertaining, exciting, and engrossing with a genuine feel of adventure along with excellent performances.
Protagonists: Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner
Antagonist: Captain Barbossa
Antagonist to Protagonist:
Captain Jack Sparrow
Putting All Together: Fight Scene
Pirates of the Caribbean is well known for its sword fight scenes and escape scenes.
Jack Sparrow and William Turner both were using swords.
The wooden cart appeared at least two times in the frame.
closed up of the cart in the frame
mainly used by Jackie Chan in his earlier Hong Kong productions but with a wide shot.
For example, a fight scene from Miracles (1989).
For most modern Hollywood film’s fight scenes are just too messy.
For example, The Expandables.
Fight scenes are often cut and shot closely to the subject to make it feel more realistic.
On the other hand, Pirates of The Caribbean did the right thing and chose clarity
Hong Kong productions especially Jackie’s, preferred the wide shot with minimal cuts.
improves the attention span of the audience on the subject.
WHY IT DOES WORK
How the characters are portrayed in terms of their costumes, lines are believable even though not entirely historically accurate.
(we're not lying, seriously!)
The side characters form a believable world that transports the audience.
The characters interact with each other in terms of language and dialect makes them likable
The movie plot is somewhat cliche' but makes it fun and different due to humorous lines and actions
WHY IT DOES NOT WORK
- Pirates were meant to be scary and threatening, Disney changed everything.
- The underwater boat scene on the sea bed
- Contrast of teeth of Captain Jack Sparrow with the other pirates
(is dentist available?)
If minor details are noticed:
Contrast of Elizabeth Swann's nails change through movie.
Will Turner's facial hair keeps changing even seconds
The title of the movie should be?
His costume is simple and fits with his character as he is only a blacksmith’s apprentice.
The scar with the letter ‘P’ indicates that Jack is a pirate.
The tattoo on his arm is a picture of a sparrow thus makes people recognize that he is Jack Sparrow

Why It Does/Doesn't Work :
First used to add contrast to actors' faces so they would show up on film.
Today used to hide flaws, look natural, accentuate features and expressions.
