Clara is one of the characters presented in the first season of Guild. She has a sweatsuit on telling me she wants to be laid back and comfortable. This also tells me she stays very active around the house and has to move around fast. She has in earrings and wears a bracelet which tells me she still wants to look nice and presentable even at home. Her outfit also tells me that she is a typical mom. In our American culture, she has the outfit of a typical soccer mom. Her hair is done pretty well telling me that she cares a great deal about her hygiene. Even though she spends a lot of time at home watching her kids and playing Guild. Her costume also tells me that she isn’t trying to impress anyone she just wants to be comfortable at home.
Setting and Decor
The setting and decor are very neat and clean. You can tell by the baby toys in the background she has kids at home. This setting also tells me that she likes to keep everything in organized and in the right place. The sunflowers in the back also tell me that she likes girly kind of things and beautiful landscapes. It also appears that she has antiques or small statues in the background. This shows me she may be a collector of a specific type of statue. The computer tells me she spends a lot of time on the internet or playing the game. The toys in the back also show me that she likes to keep her kids busy with colorful toys and other things to have more time for the game.
The lighting in the scene appears to be very natural. It seems like the only lighting in this scene is from the sun outside. The main light looks like it is coming from a window on the left of the character. The scene looks really dim and it looks like its early in the day or early in the afternoon. The lighting seems to want to show that this character is very realistic and that she is an everyday mother. The lighting carries throughout the room very well and it makes it easy to see everything.
The space in this shot is very basic looking and very plain. The director seems to want to show this character as fairly normal. I think the director wants to really show that this character is very realistic. The space shows that she is very comfortable at home enjoying the game. I think the space in this shot is trying to show how active Carla is and that she is very clean and collected. Carla is turned directly facing the camera in a very upright formal way. The space also shows me that Carla is very open and easy to have a conversation with.
Robin Thorsen played the role of Clara on the Guild. Her acting was very vibrant and open, she seemed like a really active and talkative person. She was also telling small jokes showing me that she has a fairly decent sense of humor. Her acting also made her look immature in some circumstances. Like when she was saying that she was going to teach her toddlers how to use the microwave. On the other hand, she also seems like one to give advice or be the mediator throughout the show. Her acting shows me that she gives advice and is very open about many situations. Her character also seems very busy and it looks like she always has something to do outside of playing the game.
Vork’s costume is very business casual and professional. He seems like he does a lot of business work or has a job in the business field. His costume is also very plain and basic looking. His outfit selection makes me think he doesn’t do much clothing shopping and has been inside for awhile. This costume also shows me that he may be at work playing the game, which tells me that he doesn’t do much work and invest all or most of his time playing the game. The costume also tells me that he is very neat and clean. It tells me that he keeps up with his hygiene and takes care of himself outside of the game. His costume also tells me that he may have many other obligations besides the game and he may be a busy person.
Setting and Decor
The setting and decor are slightly messy and cluttered. He has some books on top of the microwave which tells me that he possibly reads a good bit. He also has some appliances really close to him and his computer. This shows me that he may be lazy and that he doesn’t like to have to get up to do things. This scene kind of also alludes to the fact that he set up his computer in the kitchen. The overall area seems very plain and not decorated. This shows me that he doesn’t really care about having stuff look nice or if it’s organized. He also has a tool case on top of the microwave showing me that he pretty much puts things anywhere. Vork most definitely seems like a person who enjoys the convenience and doesn’t care about the look of things.
The lighting in Vork’s place was very dim and low. It shows that he is just a normal guy playing Guild. The lighting in this scene really play into the realism I think the director was trying to capture. It seemed like most of the light was either natural or from an overhead lighting. From this scene, I can’t really give a solid answer on where the light is coming from. Although it really sets the mood of the whole scene and how casual Vork seems throughout the story. You can’t see the light because of the angle but there may be another source of light coming off the computer screen. This doesn’t change anything when it seems like the majority of light is coming from the sunlight outside.
Vork’s space is very cluttered and messy. His space is very simple and plain and has no extra components that stand out. He seems like the only one that lives there and shows it by how messy he is. Vork’s space can also be seen as personal and distinctive because of how he has his books and appliances set up. His space is like I said before convenient and simple. It looks like he has nobody to impress he is just there on his own. His space also looks fairly small and compacted, it doesn’t seem like he has much room to move around a lot.
The acting displayed by Vork is done by Jeff Lewis and seemed very dorky to me. He seems like he could be a creepy guy in the world outside the game. He is very demanding at times and likes to keep everyone in line when they are playing the game. Vork also seems like a pushover because of how the other character kind of ignore his antics. His acting overall is very laid back and effortless looking. I personally think that is what the director was trying to go for to make the show seem more realistic. His acting was also a little bland when I first saw him on the show.
