TED 2:

·         Identify the type of lighting used in the film (traditional three-point, high-key, or low-key) and assess the impact of the lighting used to establish the theme.

o   In the film Ted 2 there were many uses of lighting for the plethora of most of the dynamic scenes in the film.  I think we all know the importance of lighting in any movie and in the subject of the film (Ted) it is added in film late.  “Due to this the lighting on the animation has to match the lighting from the original shot in order to make it more realistic as though Ted were there the whole time. Elements of High-Key Lighting can be seen in many of different scenes from Ted 2.  As it is set in “real-time” Boston, we can see high-key being used to offset the natural light that is produced when recording outside during times of low-light.” (WordPress)

o   The importance of the high-key lighting in most films it’s used in dark spaces to make the actors visible and creates a natural lighting for the moment.

·         Compare how the scene would play if different choices had been made.

o   For an example if a different lighting besides the high-key lighting was chosen in a scene where the actors were to be in a room then it wouldn’t have made the actors visible and wouldn’t have created that natural feeling to it.
