Reservoir Dogs: Tipping Scene


Every feature-length movie starts on paper in the form of a screenplay. With this in mind, I was interested in the process of bringing film back to a two dimensional domain, translating its language (mood, story, dialogue, lighting, sound, composition etc.) into visually intriguing imagery.

I picked three movies in particular, the first being Reservoir Dogs. I chose to disect the opening scene, making note of which characters spoke the most and less. The scene is very important because it introduces all the characters and gives an insight into who they are and what they think.
