A wide shot of Tommy will be used for the bathroom scene, I wanted this setting because it shows that this is the only place Tommy has shelter. Represents his struggle in the music video.
There will be a pan to the right to show the whole setting Tommy is in.
This shot will be in high angle to represent the weakness of Tommy.
An over the shoulder shot will be used to show Tommy looking sadly at himself, I want this shot to represent Tommy's emotions.
This shot will also be in high angle, I want to make Tommy's weak mental state apparent to the audience.
I want to exaggerate Tommy's emotions with a close up of him holding back tears, I think that this will be effective in getting across to the audience the struggle of his life.
Again this mid-shot will be used from a slight high angle to exaggerate Tommy's weakness,
A dolly camera movement will be used to move in closer to Tommy as he leans on the sink and continues to look at himself in the mirror. I want to create a little tension in the narrative by doing this.
I wanted to use another over the shoulder shot, but this time at more of a close-up. I wanted Tommy to be crying this time, so that the audience can see that the struggle has got to him.
This shot will be from a slight high angle, to aid the representation of depression in this scene by the suggested weakness of Tommy's character from the angle.
The over the shoulder shot will tilt downwards and into a close up of a knife on the bathroom counter. I think that this will intensify the theme of depression, by implementing the sub-topic linked with depression that is suicide.
The knife is important because it symbolises the theme of death and suicide, and placing the knife under a close up shot increases theses themes in the scene.
This will be from a high angle again, but this time the angle will be used to suggest that it is Tommy's point of view, instead of his weakness.
