23 – Film studies write-ups (Western video)



For this video, we wanted to make a western that did not include guns. So one other thing that sprang to mind was bars. So we decided to make a western film about a trade that is going on in the bar. It is quiet a modern take on a western because if someone saw that, without already knowing that it was a western, then they would not have probably guessed that it was a western. For a modern audience it seems like more of a drug deal. We made the character’s arrogant in their own way. The black and white filter made it less modern. But what made in western was it’s use of close-ups at the end of the film. We used the fade to black during the middle of the film because something happened that if used, would have put the next shot out of place.
