The contrast between Mr.Keating/ Neil Perry and Todd Anderson*
Middle shot vs. Close up
Low angle- Bigger
High Angle/ Subjective shot
High- Low
"Keating's Speech"
"I stand upon my desk to remind myself that we must constantly look at things in a different way."
Same direction of light, different impression
Todd Anderson being teased
- Reveals only half of his face
Secret commencement of 'Dead Poets Society'
- Blue lighting = secret= Dead Poets soceity
Script + Mis-en
Amplified the humour by projecting voices and faces
Expresses the characteristic
with the facial expression
and the way he speaks, mumbling
His speech that I've read out before was emphsised with his gestures and facial expressions
Unusual selection of film technique for the scene
Highlight certain figures by blurring the others
Neil's expression which Weir highlighted by blurring other students (busy laughing)
his admiration towards acting=goes against his father's will
Neil's suicide
Amplified Grief
Long shot- Walked out through the fence however could not go further
He cannot escape

Framing and Camera angles are steady to focus on Todd's movements
Overal, uses Side-Lighting to amplify
gloomy atmosphere
Can easily see the tear droplet on Charlie's face
Same setting but different shot type and light=different atmosphere
Same lighting direction as the boys
Zoomed in for the text to be read = close shot
Throughout the movie, important dialogues were spoken
Close up- "I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately... and not when I came to die, discover that I had not lived..."
-Set in school, a way to the cave where they have 'dead poet's society' meeting
-Snowy, cold weather

-Snowy weather: lonesome; solitary
Snowy weather: lonesome; solitary
Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.
"Boys, you must strive to find your own voice. Because the longer you wait to begin, the less likely you are to find it at all. Break out!"
