Time space compression – playing around with time and space
Time space compression – playing around with time and space
A voice whispering to Sam (non-diegetic) ‘Where are you?’ – he’s lost in time and space as is his identity. The use of sound bridges, bringing a sense of the hospital bed and the bleeps of the life support machine, into Sam’s lounge or into the police HQ. Early pov shots of shoes walking, seem to echo the mid 1600s i.e. they are costume from that time, but whose feet are they and where. Then a woman runs in red. Again, this is a quick shot, in terms of duration. A worm’s eye shot of bright green leaves, distinguishes the timeframe from the 1970s – where are we now? Diegetic whistling man vo alludes to ‘Dixon of Dock Green’ i.e. the past in the ‘present’. The sense of spaces being closer together and worlds colliding is also evident in the narrative. Many scenes cut sharply from Sam in a room to suddenly, Sam awakening in his bed, perhaps to signify that he is moving in time and space in an ‘unnatural’ way or rather than this is ‘all a dream’. Sam goes back to 1973, when he says he was ‘4’ years old, yet in this world, he is a grown man.
