Without Dialogue

Misc-En-Scene (NORMAL)

Misc-En-Scene (CONVERTED)

Notes: The Misc-En-Scene sample is far from perfect due to this reasons:

  • They only did 16 seconds instead of 30 seconds each
  • They actually used props and sounds even for the normal scene
  • Character/s on screen should not be moving (hence the mannequin challenge)
