I have seen Jaws a few times in my life, but watching it this time currently I wanted to focus on one particular scene and really dissect the editing styles that take place. I chose to watch the scene where it is made clear that a shark is lurking in the waters, when a young woman; Chrissie got attacked by a shark one very early morning skinny dipping. During this scene the revisions, arrangements, and preparing the written script.
The angles in which take place in this scene are of difficult standings. The camera flashes under the water as if to insinuate what the shark is looking at. Once Chrissie is getting attacked the camera takes multiple shots. The screening goes from flashes right to left. To create a steady flow and to get the audience to feel the depth of what is taking place much revision and placement needs to happen. The arrangements and setting that take place in this scene helps the movie to create fierceness and intensity.
The editing style presented in this film helps a movie that needs to have multiple shots into one steady flow. All the aspects of this film is combined into one concept and one perception in what is taking place. In turns of this happening the movie brings a different asset than what would be perceived watching without editing taking place in the movie. Rather than seeing the "choppiness" of the film you experience what the actors are laying down in the film. Throughout the action the editing style helps to bring anticipation into what is going to happen next.
