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

Discipline

Taking clothes away, given uniforms

Being singled out

Exposure to cold

Disorientation

Documents representing your identity

Stairs

Queuing

Singing together

Loud noises

Lighting and set
