The first scene is from the CBS show How I Met Your Mother (I'll also add a spoiler tag just in case anyone is in the middle of watching all the seasons.) It is meant to portray sadness through facial expressions and body language. There are two characters, Marshall and Lily, and the most challenging part of this project was making sure the long pauses in between talking were filled with subtle, but powerful emotion. This is also my first time working with 2 characters in one camera angle, this being towards the end of the scene.
Second, we have a shot from CW's Vampire Diaries- rage, anger and creepy. This one is not so subtle when expressing the character's feelings.
