Mise-en-scene photo project

This set of photos aimed to demonstrate that a specific space can be changed by using mise-en-scene elements such as lighting, props and characters (as seen below) to match a certain film genre:

Romantic drama – rose petals are associated with love and the stairs symbolize the wait of the loved one; warm lighting is also an indicator of the romantic drama

Horror – the dark lighting and the character at the end of the stairs makes the audience feel afraid of the unknown; the character is specific because its face cannot be seen and it stays in the dark

Mystery – the “blue spot” on the stair shows the usage of a flashlight creating a mysterious atmosphere of searching the unexpected
