Orlando\'s Look Directly At The Camera by Stephanie Hirlemann, Student

I compiled various assets about how Orlando looks at the camera. While I was watching the film, I noticed that it was a specific stylistic choice. By sifting through the documents, this knowing look from Orlando meant to address the viewers. In Sally Potter's commentary, she explains the direct look exemplifies a “kind of release… a kind of flying out of the historical period right into the present moment." These random moments when Orlando looks at the camera brings a sense of knowing and feeling that the viewers can relate to.

Necessity of Color Pallets within Orlando by Ali Schutz, Film Studies Student

Using different color pallets within costumes and set designs help to portray the different epochs the film takes the watcher through. Through these different examples, one sees gold, reds, and oranges within the Elizabethan period and then later on towards the end of the film, one can view only blues and greens as Orlando enters into the Victorian period. The use of different colors helps guide the watcher throughout the vast amount of time traveled in Orlando.
