The technique I have choose for my movie to reflect how I see the city is a series where there are jumps in scale. Each shot is captured from a different angle and various frame. The movie aims to put more emphasis on buildings and structure rather than focusing on people who appeared during moments that were filmed from close proximity. The main feature of this technique is to shed light on the beauty of architecture from multiple scenes. Sometimes it focuses on the edges of the houses or in other moments it focuses on buildings as big beautiful objects to reflect how they are organized next to each other in an eye-catching view.

In my movie, I tried to use same features of the original film (Down by Law — Opening scene-1986). For example, the director Jim Jarmusch used a black and white style to create a timeless sensation. Moreover, I used similar volume rhythm for the music.
