Scene 1: Muriel’s room. I would think of Muriel in ” A Perfect Day for Banana fish” as someone who would resemble Carolyn in American Beauty. Thus, the style of the character is similar to Carolyn when comparing the short hairstyle and the way she dress is quite sophisticated as she seems to be concern about her image.
About the perspective, I have chosen it as a two perspective. By looking at the image, the bed is not seen fully but the layout of the room is seen. This is to give an idea of what the character is like as she is someone who is similar to Carolyn’s character of caring about image and she does not seem to care about her Husband as she is seen seated and looking at her nails.
Scene 2: Elevator
The scene in the elevator would show how Sigmul has a change in his behaviour. To me, a closer view of his action and his expression would be a better perspective. I am also giving a one perspective view to show a sense of focus on the two characters especially Sigmul. This view enables us to see how Sigmul has changed and how much has he changed.
For my story “Little Wizard”, I made an argument between the little wizard’s Mother and the little wizard, Jane herself.
For my three versions of the story, I have decided to focus on the perspectives from the different characters. This is because I realise that when I focus on the different character’s perspective, the tone of the story can change.

For version 1, I have decided to follow according to the script of the story. The story was meant to show an intense relationship between Jane and her Mother when they are arguing because of how Jane wants to save her pet but her Mother does not allow her. Thus, it is shown in the seventh image where both characters are shown arguing. I have emphasised the shadow behind them to show how both the characters feel and the relationship between them during the argument is intense. From the second image to the fourth image, I also want to capture how the character feels at that moment and to establish who the character is talking to in each frame and why is the character behaving in such manner. The last frame is showing how the Mother is losing her Daughter as she could not stop her from leaving the house.
Version 2 is leaning towards the mother’s perspective. From the first frame, the mother’s face is seen and from her posture, she seemed startled as she is turning her head to look at what just happened and realised that it is her Daughter. However, in the second frame, the mother’s face is cropped because she feels that her Daughter is trying to refute to her argument. Thus, I have chosen to make her less superior as she seemed less prominent because I want to show how angry she is which would lead to the third frame. The third frame shows how superior the Mother is when she is telling Jane that she should give up in saving by her pet. However, her superiority soon went down as her Daughter refused to listen to her and the mother’s image would thus become less prominent and smaller compared to the Daughter. This is shown in the last frame where the Mother is trying to stop her Daughter from leaving the house but she could not because her Daughter refused to listen to her and she dashed out of the house. Thus, the Mother is shown at a very far distance. This whole story resembles Jane’s Mother way of narrating her own story and how she feels as her Daughter does not listen to her.
Version 3 is focusing on Jane’s perspective. This is again, showing the emotions of how Jane feels on what her Mother is trying to tell her and how strongly she feels about saving her pet. Thus, I have made Jane to be more prominent in most of my frames. Just like version two, the whole story resembles Jane’s own part of the story.
