One of the most prevalent film techniques the quick documentary on John Baldessari uses was the repeated use of quick cuts. Objects, pictures, and words appeared on the screen for as little as one second, or often even less. This technique, while rare in documentary style film, was sucessful in conveying the intereresting-ness of Baldessari and his works.
Another film technique that was evident in the documentary was John being centered in the parts where he was speaking. This technique was interesting because usually it is something we are to avoid to ensure not boring the reader. However in this instance, a combination of his large stature, interesting room, and the rest of the film being so different made this technique work with the documentary.
