Not just any super-hero but the super-hero of our generation. Or perhaps even a few generations.
Not just for fathers. But also for grandfathers.
And perhaps for all of us who have lost our old heros in life. A time when a hero was a real hero. When John Ford directed films.
Now, though, an aging hero is forced into semi-retirment from films during his golden years. He is producing his first off-bradway play. The acting job in the theater is below his dignity in many repects. He is a franchise film character. Representing an entire line of comics and serial tv and books and toys. The reader is now invested in the story. From young to old. Has their hero let them down?
Gone into another business? And therefore, the reader or viewer now sees the story in a new way. The hero has not said anything. The performance of the show gets success because of his act and they are giving their standing ovation. Riggan, in his treatment, looking at the sky and seeing the birds flying free, he immadiately follows along. Not long, Sam finds her father is nowhere at the hospital room, she looks at the sky through the windows and immediately smile.
The audience is given the freedom to make their own interpretation of the ending of this movie.
Sound, Color, Symbol and Cinematography Analysis 1. Sound The sound dominated in Birdman is the sound of drum. The drums is even heard at the opening scene.
Most of the sound of the drums is heard when the character move or the camera follows the character to move and change the setting. So, it can be concluded that the music of drum signify the change of setting.
Birdman, There are differences in the sound of drum.
We can hear it between the drum sound that accompany Riggan and Mike, the drum sound of Mike is cooler, it is much more improvised, its function is to describe his personality. Colour and Symbol The colour dominated in Birdman is dark colour. The dark colour symbolizes the ambiguous and mystery of the film, the gloomy feeling of the main character, and too many secret, as well as when the audience is brought to the new setting.
The costum which the characters used, it do not use the light color. It is dominated by the dark and muted color, such as black, grey, and so on. But there are some scenes when the actor and actress of the Broadway wear the light coloured costumes such as red and white, but it is only wore by the actor when performing in the Broadway.
Movement of Camera a. Zoom Birdman, The camera makes the object looks bigger or smaller.
Those two pictures show the scene when Riggan met Mike, and their first meeting. The movement of camera uses zoom-in technique because it is seen from the enlarged character of Mike.
Tilt Birdman, The camera moves from down to up, the first schene focuses on the audience while giving aplause to the performance, and Birdman, the second It can be seen that the camera moves from down to up, because on the first scene the light is above. Pan Birdman, The camera moves without moving the position of the camera.
Tracking Shot Birdman, The camera seems to be placed on rail like a railroad track. This technique in Birdman mostly used to follow the actor or actress to leave the setting and move scene. It can be seen that the camera follows the actor.
On this scene Riggan was walking in the hallway of the Broadway, and he met his daughter accidentally. This technique makes as if we as the audience were in the movie and we will feel as if we are behind the actor and follow him walking. Most of the technique used in Birdman is tracking shot camera.
There is also the scene when the camera goes round the actors and actress. And it shows the actor and actress who are involved and the setting of the place. It can be seen on the scene below when the camera first panned to Lesley, then to Ralph, then to Riggan, and then to Laura. And the movement of the actor is the movement of the setting and action. This technique is one of the reason why Birdman won Oscar.
Birdman is known for it long takes, it is unedited shots of several minutes or more in length, continuous take. Long shot technique is incredibly difficult. Angle a Low Angle Birdman, And you know what? You're right. You don't. It's not important. You're not important. Get used to it.
Riggan seems devastated, and Sam can see that. SAM She looks at him sympathetically, but not knowing what to say One notable addition? Watch that part of the scene starting here until its conclusion. That is what an actor can do with this scene description: Silence. She looks at him sympathetically, but not knowing what to say… exits.
