Editing notes about the drama series Dexter.

  • Showing him slapping a mosquito at the begining indicates murder.
  • Lots of jump cuts.
  • The title of Dexter, writing is blood red the background is very pale like it has been carved on a dead body, this is show after he has opened his eyes to show hes awoken and ready for the sequence of his day.
  • Jump cut from one blood spot to another two, creates more drama and tension.
  • Lots of jump cuts adds mystery and addiction making you asking questions.
  • Shows him locking the door maybe to show hes's locking away secrets, it shows him pulling the key out relating to him pulling aknife out of somebody.
  • The sequence jumps from one thing hes doing to another mainly emphasing things that relate to murder or are simlar that make you think of murder.
  • Also using the jump cuts it makes the routine seem more odd and unatural which relates to the fact that he himself is a bit weird and unnatural.
