Miguel A Rivas Menossi 7 Sec 008 03232011 Ex 5 Knife in the Water Polanskl 1962 Cutting and Internal Rhythms The scene begins at 002520 when the young student Zygmunt Malanowicz looks up towards the mast of the sailboat It ends at 02532 with a shot of his nger and the mast There are seven total shots in the scene The first shot shows the young man s face from an objective pointofview This eyelevel medium closeup places his face on the upper right comer of the frame His head rests on a spiraled rope on the deck of the sailboat The use of a medium lens allows everything to be infocus even the actor s nger that appears in front of the camera at the end of the shot The wooden deck and shadows coming from ropes that hold the sail create some distinct linear patterns The shadows create diagonal lines that touch the border of the rope spiral on which his head lies Lowkey lighting is employed in the scene with its main source coming from the top of the camera It is given away by the highlights on his right cheek The lighting creates dark shadows on his eyes Overall his skin color appears gray in this black andwhite scene His chest also appears gray since he is shirtless The scene then shows continuity as it progresses with and eyeline match cut The boy s finger is seen from a subjective pointofview in a second shot We see the finger and the ship s sail on the background The mast in the background creates a vertical line pattern while the rest of the sail creates some sharp diagonal patterns The scene then cuts back to the boy holding his finger up This reassures the viewer that the second shot was the boy s pointofview The third shot goes back to showing the finger and the sail The last four shots demonstrate discontinuous editing with a series of jump cuts The background of the sail remains constant but the finger appears to jump left to right from shot to shot each shot lasting about 2 seconds on average This use of jump cuts alters the time perception The sound in the scene is another story It remains constant
