Halloween inspirationAnd How we applied it to Appleby Street
Titles• First of all we like the way “Halloween” introduces the titles of the “producer” etc with a dark background with a bright light to distinguish the writing from the background.• We didn’t use the “producer” but we applied this for “Kwirk Productions” and “Sphinx Studios”
Villain• First of all we applied the white mask in our film, this is because the mask is symbolic and its something to make the villain look sinister.• I had to play the Villain because I am a boy and the tallest boy in our group, because in every horror the man is masculine and this is shown from the “mid shot” of “Mike Myers”.
Villains attributes• In both of our opening minutes Mike Myers and our un named villain do not speak at all, they do not reveal any emotions through the face either as they both are wearing masks.• There are no shots on them which shows there journey, which makes it mysterious because no one knows how they got there which creates suspense.
Death of the policemen and Ben’s• In both films they start as two then they disintegrate into groups of one, this creates suspense as the inevitability that they are both going to die.• The policemen and my character in the film both make a loud grunting sound when they die. Both of the deaths are not seen but bring the remaining character who was left behind to come and find the dead on the floor and then to be left vulnerable to the villain.
The characters who die• They are both portrayed to be inferior to the villain.• Also they are both seen as not heroic shown by the policemen stopping for something to eat, and my frequent macho line “you kidding me”• They both die with a torch in there hand so you can see the detail of there wound, and the goriness of the process.
