There is an immediate link to time and an implication that time is "running out" the 24 numerals flicker in a way that is reminiscent of a countdown digital counter. A count down clock out a frequent movie trope to impose a deadline on your characters, this is also present with the clock face that is seen. The fast beat of the music, is intended to give a sense of urgency. The change of shot is frequent even though they are several stills of the same character.Although the majority of the shots are stills, they have all been edited to zoom in or out in post production to give a sense of movement. Lighting is generally quite hard lighting with side lighting or back lighting which gives more defined shadows on the face, rather than softer front lighting which is more flattering but less dramatic.
