The Muppets - Happy Song Breakdown

Here's some film analysis I did for an upcoming musical animated film as I was going to be working on...Company went in a different direction, but the analysis is still highly valuable to in terms of breaking down how a musical number is shot, edited and creates story point!

The Muppets - Happy Song
Scene analysis:

Exposition to set up Walter and Gary's relationship as brothers in a co-dependent existence. Presents illusion of happiness yet the awkwardness of Walter being a muppet and Gary being human. The mirror and match each other in every way, but Walter exists as a human which presents major difficulties as a muppet. Gary is blissfully unaware of this or much of anything else in his rose colored-glasses world. Check out the video and then scroll through the boards!
