The director uses an over-the-shoulder shot in this scene to show symbolism of speech. In this shot, since we see over-the-shoulder of the person who is standing, we see that the other characters in view are not actually presenting eye contact toward the character. This means that the people have not yet received his configuration of speech, so, the shot appears to show that he is yet to deliver. The shot also presents a clear view of the plane's interior.
The director has applied this specific shot to follow up the previous scenes on-board the plane. (Although I am unable to use the correct expression), the shot shows the firefighter in distress. The flames of the incident and surrounding woods are in perspective of the shot. The director has made sure that the main component of this shot is the character's expression.
In this scene, the director has used a full-body shot of football player, Nate Ruffin. This shot is used to show his actions at the community's sacred place. He places the match ball on the centre line at Marshall's home ground where everyone has gathered to mourn as a symbolic gesture to those who died.
