One of Hitchcocks grestest films, The Birds is a full of eerie suspense, and this design is a breakdown of the first bird attack. To mimic the bird attacks, the scenes are cut together fast and erratically. This design features the ‘quiet’ before the storm, of Melanies pristine hair, before a gull attacks her, after which there is a cut frame to her hand with a single spec of blood on it.
The line, and the unasnswered question of the entire movie dIvides the images – “Have you ever seen so many gulls?”
The green references her dress in the scene, whilst the blue references the sky where the birds are coming from (the blue and the hair bun also match our desing for Hitchcocks Vertigo)
