This exercise involved watching this scene first without sound, then again with sound but not watching the scene, and then finally watching with the sound. I was to analyze the camera work, analyze the audio track without picture, and then analyze them both together.
Watching The Shawshank Redemption (1994) prison break clip with no sound I notice how slow the scene moved. I counted about seven different camera positions. There were times when this character was sitting at the desk and in the tunnel where he was dark shadowed out. I did notice him packing a bag with some items and te camera panned right toward the bag he was filling. There were victorious moments that he appeared in up shots, when he came out of the tunnel and when he was taking off his shirt toward the end of the scene.
The audio only version where I listen to this same scene with out watching it I notice in the beginning the music was pleasant and melodic. This was going on with some paper shuffling simultaneously during some melodic piano playing. The first round of thunder I noticed the music changed. It became more low in tones no longer a piano, but sound like a cello was playing in a staccato style fashion. When the pipe banging began the music and thunder increased The music became even shorter, sharper and louder. The narrator explained what the character was crawling in and how far he had to climb through the that tunnel. I could tell the climax of the scene from the music. It was now a full orchestra playing with victorious music ending in laughter.
Watching the scene with music I saw the girl poster for the first time which I did not notice when analyzing the camera shots. The scene appeared twice as fast as it did watching it with no sound. What I did not notice by voiding my audible senses was the length of the tunnel. The transition from the tunnel to the creek gave me no indication how far he climbed. The scene had to have the audio track with the narrator to convey that message.
