In the opening scene, the video is shot from a low angle to show that the protagonist is the person filming, and to invoke a feeling of secrecy. The younger girl is staged closer to the camera so as not to block the view of the mother.
This scene represents the beginning of our protagonist's interest in the missing persons cases. The film angle captures the casual nature of her filming that occurs before she beings to spiral into paranoid confusion.
This is the first cafe scene in the film, and it opens with a bit of comedic relief. The camera being placed in front of our protagonist allows our audience to feel as though they were in the scene and not simply watching it.
This is the second cafe in the film. The low camera angle that now incorporates our protagonist closest to the camera allows the audience to see her face and the beginning of her obsession.
This is the first monologue scene in the film. Capturing the protagonist in her thought process allows our audience to not only receive some background info. but also allows them to see her changing emotions up close and get a better understanding of the character.
This is the third, and final cafe scene. This is when the hysteria begins, as Jackson has now joined those missing. Jamie is the focus of this scene, as she is the most emotional, and this developed the same kind of panic in our audience; this is the first time anyone has panicked so they adopt the same feeling.
