introduction of orlando: directly addressing audience allows the audience to feel as though the film is solely for their benefit. Orlando and the viewer share an intimate relationship. This also allows for a repoire/identification of orlando to be established, one that is repeated in several scenes. Orlando and his/her character is identified by it.
Thoughts on the voice over: if it should represent orlando as both female and male (to be included at the beginning and end of film, or only when she is a woman. Potter convinced that whole book is written with a 'female' consciousness. interesting regarding the novel's and film's deconstruction on gender, what is female/male.
