Identify the type of lighting used in the film (traditional three-point, high-key, or low-key).

The movie I decided for this is Fast and Furious Six once again, the main thing I noticed in this movie is it used a variation of forms of lighting depending on the scene, so one scene that I will go with is the plane crashing.. I believe they went with low lighting/ three point because they wanted to focus on mostly the explosion of the plane but I had a hard time being for sure because It also looked like they used Interactive lighting throughout most of the movie

Assess the impact of the lighting used to establish the theme. I would say the point of lighting interactively would be to help with fast moving things and to give the people the feeling like they are right with the actor. The action in this movie also is focused on not just from camera angles but also from the lighting by allowing the lights to stay moving throughout the movie

What are the benefits of the style of lighting used? One main benefit I see with this for lighting is it helps keep the focus on one specific thing or the main people and not so much on the backround

How did this technique contribute to the theme?

How was the lighting technique suited to the genre of the film? For example, documentary films tend to rely on natural light as a way of creating an overall tone of authenticity. With many action movies and street racing the best kind of light is either natural or interactive because it helps show the cars moving along with many other things moving.

Compare how the scene would play if different choices had been made. If they had gone with a still light form I don’t think this movie would have made it into theaters just because of the lack of distinguished actors or scenes.
