Similarities and differences in my trailer comparing to existing products Georgina – Nangreave Road, Becky – Coronation Street, High Angled Shot High Angled Shot I have decided to compare the shot of Becky in Coronation Street and a shot of Georgina in Nangreave Road. I chose these two screen shots because they are both high angled. The only difference is, is that Nangreave Road has two people rather than one and it is indoors. The Nangreave Road shot has been edited to look like a security camera whereas the Coronation Street is just a plain high angle shot.Title card – Nangreave Road Title card – X-Men Both of these title cards show a clear use of the e4 logo, making it clear to the audience that the show is a pert of e4. The typical purple colour scheme has been used in both examples of title cards to make the image as recognisable to the audience as possible. Both advertise the time and date of when the show is aired to inform the audience. However the X-Men title card shows a use of an image in the background to further advertise the show. Nangreave Road - Transitions Hollyoaks – Transitions In both of these trailers, transitions are used not only to provide the audience with information on the trailer, but to also edit from one scene in the trailer to another. However whereas the Nangreave Road trailer is simple with a black background, the hollyoaks trailer is more colourful and fun. This relates to the storylines of the soap trailers as the Nangreave Road trailer is very eerie and mysterious, Hollyoaks is more exciting and bubbly.
