An example of a film where mise-en-scene elements help with the narrative of a story and the relationship between characters is Kill Bill Vol 1, particularly in the very opening scene. The scene starts off with a very close up camera angle of Uma Thurman laying on the floor, it appears that she is wearing a veil, which would suggest that she was getting married. Her hair is soaked, and as there is no water in the immediate shot, we can assume that this is due to sweat.
We see the future as being represented as grey and dull due to the lighting and the mise en scene however ,we see that there is a great deal of city life.
The opening also gives the idea that the city is quite polluted due to the number of vehicles that are shown there is also allot of grey smoke coming from the cars.
Furthermore the city is being represented as dirty and quite dangerous due to the number of rubbish bags lying around and the many policemen that are seen. Overall the city is shown in quite a negative way and from what is shown in the opening technology does not seem to have moved on that much.
In fact some of the cars that are shown look like cars that would have been used in the olden times. However it is very clear that the city being represented is London because of the use of props such as the red bus which is an item associated with London.
During the opening scene we get introduced to the main protagonist. This is shown because throughout the opening scene the main focus is on him.
Although we know that he is the main protagonist we do not yet see him as a hero or in a positive light because we see him adding alcohol into his coffee, also when the explosion happens we do not see him run to help anybody.
Also his appearance is quite scruffy and he is unshaven. As a result of this he does not fit all of the established ideas of what a hero in a film should be. The lighting used in the opening scene of Children of men is natural lighting.
The natural light gives of very grey, dull lighting which creates a cold effect. The majority of the colours used in the opening scene include grey and blue and black and the fact that natural lighting has been used emphasises this.
The natural lighting also helps to create a more realistic feel throughout the opening scene. There is not much variety of camera shots during the opening. The shots that have been used include a high angle shot, a low angle shot these two shots are followed by one continuous shot which follows the main protagonist.
The continuous shots allows the audience to view the setting in one go instead of a number of different shots. For example when we see the camera running towards the explosion this shows how effective the unsteadiness of the camera is. This is because the whole opening has been filmed in one shot with a handheld camera.
This creates a shaky effect which makes the opening seem more realistic. The continuous shot dominates the opening.
Even though there is only one shot we see allot of the setting as there is a variety of camera angles being used. An example of this is when the camera is following the protagonist out of the shop which is where the scene starts. As the camera comes out of the shop it pans away from the protagonist and then does slow pan of the setting back to the protagonist.
Mise-en-scene The representation of space affects the reading of a film. Depth, proximity, size and proportions of the places and objects in a film can be manipulated through camera placement and lenses, lighting, decor, effectively determining mood or relationships between elements in the diegetic world. That Griffith, the artist who always thought of himself and his role in idealized terms, identified with the Chinese man can be seen in the way that BROKEN BLOSSOM's plot and mise-en-scene constantly valorize the young man's tenderness, aesthetic sensibility, and moral superiority.

The fact that only one shot has been used lets viewers see the setting of the opening scene in one go instead of a number of continuous shots. Also at the end of the scene when the explosion happens the use of a handheld camera really makes the explosion seem realistic as it looks as if somebody is running towards the explosion because of the way that the camera is moving.
Editing of text has also been put over the shot showing the time and date of the opening. This shows that the setting and time that the scene is happening in is very important to the film.
There is no music to start off with however, the music gradually comes in and is very touching music.
This is done because it matches the mood of what is happening in the shot at the at that moment. As the camera slowly moves out of the shop which is where the scene starts we hear the sound of the city mostly cars and people talking.
The transition from the heart-rending and harmonious music to the sound of the loud city shows that something may happen very quickly. The differences between the music change the whole mood of the shot dramatically. The use of the red buses clearly shows viewers that the scene is in London.May 08, · Mise en scene in “I Am Legend” by jennifervissering Concentrating on the impact of lighting choices that were used din the movie “I Am Legend,” the meaning of the film is intensified by use of a combination of low-key lighting, high-key lighting, in between low-key and high-key, and traditional three-point lighting.
