Observations from the Shawshank Redemption screening

I forgot to mention our observations about successful devising – all these were factors that enhanced immersion, and several are similar to techniques used in hypnosis:

Fractionation – moving between rooms and buildings

Being shouted at


Taking clothes away, given uniforms

Being singled out

Exposure to cold


Documents representing your identity



Singing together

Loud noises

Lighting and set
