These notes below are of the documentary 'About a Girl'. This is about a young girls who talks about her ambition and dreams in life and how she wants to be a singer. The director in this documentary uses scenery around the actors to help the audience see how they are meant to feel or react. Watching this film enabled me to have different views on how I was going to shot my own film. I also was able to analyse a freeze frame of the film and see what techniques where used to best portray the film successfully.
