558 words - 3 pages

Physical journey is someone or something moves from one place to another. The film, Cast Away, directed by Robert Zemeckis, shows concepts of physical journey by using the character Chuck Noland who trapped in an isolated and uninhabited island as a result of a plane crash. Through the film, Robert Zemeckis shows that physical journeys are often arduous by nature, a person can feel isolated during the journey, and a physical journey can be repeated in the reverse order.The film Cast Away reflects the idea that physical journeys are often arduous by nature. Many physical journeys can get harder by the power of nature such as storm, tornado, hail and flood. In the film Cast Away, ...view middle of the document...

When the plane was falling down, quick movement of camera was used to show the danger and tension that are produced by the storm. A point of view shot of Chuck Noland was used when he was looking outside through the window and this shot put audience in the plane so that they know the fear produced by the power of nature. When Chuck Noland survived from the crash, many waves fell on him and put him in danger. Zemeckis again used a point of view shot to show the power of nature and used zoom out to an extreme long shot from high level angle shot and these techniques show how the journey interrupted by the nature. The screen faded then suddenly changed and became silent from the storming sound. This juxtaposition of two different scenes was used to emphasise the journey that is arduous by nature. Next morning, Chuck Noland writes the word 'HELP' on the beach but next morning, the word became dim because of waves. To show how the nature impacted the journey, Zemeckis used long shot to show the word becoming dim by waves. He also used direct sound of waves to convey the idea more effectively. Few days later, Chuck Noland tries to get out of the island. He collided with waves and every time he hit the wave, cutaway shots were used by using waves as a bridging subject between the shots. Zemeckis used close up to Chuck Noland's face after the collision to emphasise the impact of nature. When he washed away by a big wave, a rock cut his leg. Again, close up was used to his leg and his face. This suggests that his journey became harder and is physically impacted by the nature.Bibliography: The film: 'Cast Away' by Robert Zemeckis
