How Expensive Are Pep Meds

The Quince Tree Sun vs Dexter vs. The Terminal: A device in crescendo

Author's note: The piece chosen for the series Dexter for the last chapter of the third season, so there is inevitably important disclosures relating to the plot. Having already completed the issuance of the fifth, I understand that the time past is reasonable, but it is worth noticing.

In most cases we speak of time in film, we are talking about how to tell you something that, having happened at a particular time, we need to recount at least.
speak so that the narrative is less time than real time.
A dinner, a conference, an auction, a football game ... all these actions come at last and it lasts a movie and of course this is no way ...
So we have to reduce the time narrated.

A classic, used in many film is the cast parts of an action that takes place on a fixed frame.
see on stage does not change as one or more characters will develop a specific action, so that the character appears and disappears in different attitudes that have just completed the action.

Developing my eclectic taste, I brought three examples (each well into the narrative of the author) where we will see variations on this technique.

The first is what we find at the beginning of the movie " The Quince Tree Sun," directed by Victor Erice in 1992.
is the most classic and content of the three.
By way of preamble, before starting the story, we see the painter Antonio López mount the fabric onto the frame. To tell it, respecting the rhythm imposed by the operator meticulous to the whole process, the director uses a very soft and long cast.

I will see better in this video:

insist that seems to have a double motive in using this trick: one hand to have something hard enough in less time, and the other dealing to bring to the screen and reflect the very spirit of the author and his method of work.

In this second example is more pantente artificiality.
is, as previously noticed, the last chapter of the third season of Dexter .
It's not just the ostentation of the elements that end up crowding, but how the action actually begins with a more closed (which will give us all the information you need to know) to be open until the action starts really.

I have in this video:

As I say the performance is more complex, as the plane begins with a closeup of one of the main characters of this third season.

From there the plane climbs at a time that is emerging, and appreciate overhead perspective like the character has been assassinated.

The plane continues opening until it reaches the point where it will remain fixed and which will develop all the events of the story: A runner who discovers the corpse, the police arrived, the fire, how to seal off the place, until Dexter, the protagonist, arrives at the crime scene.
All that cash in less than a minute.

But if we go a step further in the device, where we will find is in this film that is half no way, directed by Steven Spielberg and called " The Terminal."

Here we see a back nut over the use of fades, and instead of the characters appear and disappear, we will see simultaneously, while at the same time, several actions we have been made at different times.

The video speaks for itself:

thus coincide in the development of this action, we can see two or three characters (who plays Tom Hank ) simultaneously scene.

Far is the cadence and the thoroughness of the work of Antonio López in their study compared with that of Viktor Navorski in particular Terminal .
And it is also interesting to note as though somehow use the same effects, the same devices, the same resources, their deployment and implementation on site permanently marking just the imprint of it.
