The title ‘The Devil Made Me do It’ is in black and white and looks rather sinister which highlights the fact that it says ‘The Devil’ and the actual story is of a murder. The ‘t’ at the end in ‘it’ looks like a cross which signifies the religious theme to the documentary and how a nun was killed The background is eerie looking, portraying the fact that the overall documentary is creepy and dark, as it is about a murder of a nun. The mast head shows that the people are blaming the Devil for the their own doings and gives it Satan vs. Christianity theme Mise-en-scene

Low key lighting signifies the rock genre of music and how it is portrayed as ‘dark’ The dark attire and eccentric black and white make-up link to how they are fans of Marilyn Manson and are at his concert. Mise-en-scene

Manson’s body language and facial expression portrays that he is tired and annoyed at having been accused of influencing three teenage girls to kill a nun Close-up of Manson Mise-en-scene and camerawork

Manson is in a mid shot whilst giving direct address to the audience, making him seem confident and not ‘sketchy’ which would further peoples opinions on him being an influence to the killing. The background in this shot is rather bare and not very personal Low key lighting reflects Manson's persona yet it also makes him seem darker which could lead the audience watching the DVD to believe that he overall is dark and that maybe his dark nature influenced the girls into killing the nun. People being interviewed are mainly on the left or right of the screen Mise-en-scene and camera work

The scenery in the shot is misleading as it is calm and peaceful in contrast to the actual story. Mise-en-scene

This image is a close up of the women’s face which, from her facial expressions tells us that she is concerned and a little scared about what happened. Camerawork

Archive material in the documentary The title ‘Don’t blame ‘goth’ culture for tragedy’ suggests that when a murder tragedy happens that people would immediately start blaming people who dress or act anything related to ‘goth’. Links to how people accuse Manson of being a big part of the reason why the three girls killed the nun. This could mean that because another tragedy happened, that they might start to blame him again Archive material

Manson is in a point of view shot from the audience The graphics of the subtitles underneath the image tell us the lyrics to Manson’s song. The lyrics suggest his own personal beliefs that there is no God and he will not follow what everyone else who believes that there is does. These lyrics in particular could portray why people thought that he had a big influence over the girls killing the nun as the girls (who were big fans of Manson) could have got the idea to kill a nun from them. Low key lighting suggests the darkness over the topic of God, and how he does not believe in such things Manson is dressed as a pope, which makes the audience think things that are unnecessarily true. It portrays him as disrespectful Mise-en-scene, graphics, camera work

The choral music in the background created a melancholic feel to what was happening The people presented in the image are not dressed as Manson in contrast to the teenage fans of Marilyn. Their facial expressions in this image represent the sadness and how emotional they are at having to bury her. It is a long mid shot of people carrying a coffin. Mise-en-scene, sound, camera work

The graphics of subtitles at the end tell us the conclusion to the whole thing, the girls sentences for their crimes. In the background to the credits was the sound of choral music which was a contrast to Manson’s music. It made the audience feel fear for what has happened . The black background represents the darkness of the crime that the girls have committed. It signifies the death of the nun and how she is now in darkness. The black background makes the white writing stand out which connotes how big of a topic this documentary was about. Graphics
