Finding Nemo is a very humorous movie and most scenes are funny but some are very sad and dramatic. By knowing how scenes are funny you look by the audio, visual and linguistic parts. For audio you listen for the music and pace, so when the shark eats the mum and the fish eggs they have a very dramatic music. Also for visual when there are sad or happy moments you would be able to tell by the facial expressions. For linguistic you can tell what they are feeling by their text, so if they were happy they would use a higher pitched tone and if they were feeling dull they would use a lower pitched tone.
They use a lot of camera shots in Finding Nemo. The shots they use are Top-Bottom or a birds eye view, Bottom-Top where it has a shot at the bottom and looks up, close up where it has a shot from your shoulder up and extreme closes up where it zooms up to your face. They used an extreme close up when the scuba diver trapped Nemo and an Bottom-Top when Nemo was on the rock and about to go to sea to ‘touch the butt’. Also a Top-Bottom when Nemo was on the stingray and he was looking down at all the fish.
The characters were very well thought of. So Dory is a very humorous character because she forgets everything. Marlin is scared of everything and is overprotective with Nemo. The sharks, you would think they are mean by the first look at them but they had soft heart until they smelt blood. Finally Nemo, a risk taker about a lot of things.
