Cinematic techniques help films become eye-catching and make viewers really enjoy their films. Tim Burton uses cinematic techniques such as shot reverse shot, non-diegetic music/sound, and low key lighting to create a variety of different moods for viewers. Burton uses these techniques in two of his best films, Edward Scissorhands and The Big Fish.
In films, shot reverse shot is when dialogue is in play between two or more people and the camera shifts person to person. Near the start of the film The Big Fish, father and son, Mr. Edward Bloom and Will Bloom, shot reverse shot is used when father and son argue with one another. When the shots go from Will to Edward and back to Will and so forth, tension is created between the both of them. Facial
