Romeo and Juliet was filmed quite different from how we would see a William Shakespeare movie. The story behind the movie made it more realistic by adding our century to this 1600's tale. At the beginning of the movie the camera used a technique called dolly zoom, which in the movie it zoomed in on the tv with the news playing, letting the watchers know that we are about to enter the story that lead up to the event. There were a lot of close up angle throughout the movie but one in particular was the scene when Mercutio decided to fight Tybalt when Romeo Refuses to; and Tybalt ended up shooting Mercutio.Then the camera gets closer to Mercutio face showing his expressing towards the shooting. The director also included the off the shoulder angle when Romeo decided to talk to Juliet at the party that he crashed.In the movie the camera did a lot of moving around. For example, in the scene were Romeo secretly went to the Capulet's compound to see Juliet; Juliet bends down to look at the water and she looks up at Romeo the director used an angle called the tilt. This angle in this scene made the audience feel like they were Romeo talking to her. The directors used the aerial shot from the helicopter to give the audience a reason to believe that they are in the helicopter. Overall Romeo and Juliet, was a good way to tell a William Shakespeare story in the moderate world that we live in despite the language barrier.
