(That, and suggestions for how to improve the wording of the description, as I am still not quite sure how to describe this.) It seems thatwhether one is in a building, or a vehicle, or whatever else, a good a way to convey a mood, is to show a character or group of characters looking through a window, such that the combination of window-staring pose with the visuals and music would help emphasize whether a theme is hopeful or hopeless, ashamed or proud, or whatever other contrast might be involved. Sometimes associated with the Contemplative Boss.
