Jeans. Jean Jacket. Jean Bus...

- fluid shot (single edit-take)
Name of the
: Get It On (Bang a Gong)

What's going to happen next?
Slightly suggestive thought:
Dark light + Suspicious actor + a door you leading to a dark room
Dim - darker than normal daylight lighting
Use of Colour
The bus is blue. So are Billy's clothes. Not much..
Chance. Odds are switched. Anything can happen
Foreshadows that luck happend - related to 'Flasher'

Attention. Bright=Positive Mood
The level is at - height
The level where he wants to be - book

With the ballet book in Billy's hands. Plot of scene changes:
Previous and Current shot = transition (no dialogue, only background music)
Next = shot with dialogue
: Close-up Shot - emotion,
: Semi-quick shots between Bill and Librarian
Music stops playing after librarian says “Why are you looking at that?”
Viewer is faced with a subjective idea:
ballet is for girls - as if librarian saw the book
When the music stops, tension and conflict arise
This shot is similar to a dramatic pause
This climax to the scene subsides with "You can't take that out on a junior ticket"
Highest point of tension
Position: only turns his head - suspicious
Brings the attention to Billy
Conveys a bright future a

Dialogue - acting aspect
Light is shining on Billy
When the ending lyrics "Take Me":
Billy 'takes' or steals the book - ticket

Start: uncomfortable being seen
Community: Coal Miners = labour
