I had some downtime while traveling today, so I did my Prisoner106 homework and went on a watching spree. I got through the first five episodes, and I am totally locked in. I might finish the whole season my week’s end, and revisit it a few times for some close readings. In the interim the above GIF from the “Free for All” episode featuring the No. 58. This shot was almost too perfect not to GIF. It’s as if I had masked her silhouette to isolate the moving background for this GIF, but I didn’t. That’s the way it was shot. Which makes me wonder if they had to do something similar themselves to get that background to show up cleanly behind her.
I also think the moment when No. 58 gives No. 6 a slap in this episode makes a nice reaction GIF:
Another moment I knew I wanted to try and capture was No. 2 banging his gavel during the mock debate.
