Vork is wearing a blue button-down shirt when the characters of The Guild are being introduced. The audience can gain information about the cast by the outfits that are worn. The blue button-down shirt shows that he is ready for a business casual day. The viewer can also assumer that he is comfortable in the leisure of his own home while cooking because of the white t-shirt underneath it. Wearing this button-down shirt while playing video games shows that he takes it very seriously. It can also show the reader that he cares a lot about his appearance. The duct tape on his headphones shows the viewers that they are worn out, alluding to the fact that he plays the game often.
Setting and Decor:
The setting of this scene was in Vork’s kitchen where he is making bacon on a skillet, and spreading mayonnaise onto a piece of bread. There is a computer screen on the countertop to the right of Vork, showing the audience that he cares a lot about food and video games. It also shows that he is a multi-tasker and often likes to eat and game at the same time. The counter in the background has a microwave surrounded by a clutter of various objects. The cluttered mess can show that Vork is constantly busy and doesn’t have the time to clean up after himself. It can also show that he doesn’t have people over his house often because otherwise the kitchen area would be neat and tidy.
The director did a good job of demonstrating this scene with the lighting that was chosen. He used the three main types of lighting to make the actor stand out and be the center of attention for the scene. Key light is shown from the right side of the set. It is used to illuminate the main character and make him look better. The fill light is used in this scene to eliminate the shadows in the back behind him and to make it look more realistic. The back light was used in this scene to separate Vork from the background and give depth behind him to make the kitchen look bigger than it is. With the techniques of the different lighting, the scene is able to look more realistic on camera.
The kitchen space that is surrounded by Vork is very small and cluttered. There are various kitchen utilities all around him. His computer is also right by his side so he is able to use it at any moment while eating. The director chose to use a deep space when directing this film to show the messiness of his life so the viewer could gain a better understanding for Vork’s personality. The director also chose to create this video with a deep focus so the background would be made clear for the audience to see what was behind him. The space and the way this video was filmed was important for the director to show to the audience so they could gain a clear perspective on Vork’s every day life.
Jeff Lewis plays Vork in The Guild. He plays a nerdy gamer who is the leader of the Guild. His acting indicates to the audience that his character is very kept to himself. He tells the group that he plays with that he is uncomfortable meeting in person and would rather not go. He is a socially awkward person who is also very introverted. Often times throughout the show the camera is facing Vork directly making it seem as if he is having a conversation with the audience directly. It makes the audience feel like they are apart of this show.
In this screen shot of Bladezz from The Guild we can see that this character fit the role of “an average gamer” very well. His long brown hair shows the viewers that he is juvenile and laid back. With a key hanging around his neck the viewers could assume that he is often times a forgetful person. The key around his neck could be because he forgets his keys a lot and needed a place for him to always have it. His clothes show us that he is comfortable and relaxed and wants nothing more than to just hang out at home.
Setting and Decor:
The viewer can tell by looking at the background of Bladezz’s room that he is an easy going person who is a bit disorganized. This could be a symbol of his personality by stating that he is not up tight and is a go with the flow type of person. The chair that he is sitting also demonstrates that he is relaxed because it is cushiony and comfortable. The wires on the shelves demonstrate that Bladezz is technologically savvy and enjoys video games.
Key light, fill light, and black light are all present in this scene of The Guild. The key light is placed to the left of Bladezz to make the actor’s appearance look better. The fill lighting was used in this scene to eliminate the shadows coming from the key lighting. Without the help of the fill lighting there would be a bigger shadow casted behind his shoulder. The blacklight helps with the separation between the background and the foreground. Without it there would be no depth between the two and Bladezz would look like he is closer to the shelf. The director does a good job of finding a way to make sure the lighting is properly placed so it enhances the film properly.
This scene has a deep space because it has foreground, middle ground, and background. In the background, the shelf has enough room for storage and other types of wires that belong to electronics. The different wires shows the audience that he is good with technology. The comfy couch that he is sitting in shows the viewers that he spends lots of time in the basement playing video games which is why he wants to be comfortable while he is down there. The area surrounding him shows more of his personality and how his love for technology.
Vincent Caso is the actor that plays Bladezz in The Guild. The actor plays the role of a technological savvy teenager who loves to play video games. He does all of this while in the leisure of his home. It appears that he spends a lot of time in the basement of his home which is where his computer is. Vincent portrays the role of a young gamer who lives in his parents basement well. This clip is filmed as an oblique scene because it views the character at a thirty degree angle. It makes the audience feel as if they are a fly on the wall viewing his every day life.
