Dexter Analysis Notes

Cinematography:Start- focus on mosquito. kills it. camera refocuses on to dexters face (smile).Extreme close-ups - e.g. cleaning blood,cooking,cutting orange shows intimate detailClose up on face before leaving houseMysterious, only see his face clearly at enddark side

Sound:Foley track (emphasises sound) digetic sound-blood dripping- flossing- pulling key out- cooking- slicing orange- killing the fly- eating- shaving

Non-digetic sound- creepy music- jolly/fairground- ticking- casual/jaunty- click at the end- music fades away when he gets outside (matches his facial expression)
Mise-en-scene: blood, fruit and other red liquids murdercloths white t-shirt (normality) suggest smutheringFacial expression creepy and seems like a syco, but is the opposite when he leaves his houseprops the way he shaves shows the first sign of blood.Normal morning- Breakfast, flossing, shaving etc.
Editing: Dexter is written in bloodJump cuts : him waking up and him shaving, the blood drips in the sink and him wipeing the blood slithering down his neck, him wipeing his neck and him cutting open the meat, him putting the meat in the pan and him stabbin and twisting it, he then puts the meat into his mouth and begins chewing it, also the eggs he breaks the eggs and then stabs it it in the pn and twists it like painful stab wound.The part where he locks his apartment and walks away locking away
