These are the 9 frames I decided to choose from my groups thriller opening. In this power point I will analyse each frame and consider different aspects to talk about for each frame.
In these first five frames the story is immediately subjected to a thriller because there is a chase scene which instantly creates suspense and tension and makes the audience want to know what is going on!
The costumes and props are useful because the person running away is seen carrying a large bad. This immediately creates suspicion and tension because the audience want to know why he has the bag and what’s in it. Maybe this is why his being chased? And the hoody he wears gives the impression his a common crook and that he doesn’t want his face to be seen.
The setting starts to become established when the chase eventually leads up to a church. This could be quite effective because the audience may be thinking why is a church going to be significant in this? Is it going to be significant in this?
The kind of camerawork we used varied, we used a variety of different camera angles , shots and movement when fillming to allow us to create our opening. The title styles and fonts we used for the titles was the same for all of our titles apart from the film title. We done this because we felt it creates better flow and blends in better than having a load of different fonts and stlyes.
The opening finished in the church scene. I think the genre of thriller is really opened up here because there is a lot of tension and suspense which is often a common thing to find in a thriller. The camerawork was used effectively in the church we were able to get close shots medium shots and establishing shots as well as more. Setting wise this is probably the main setting of the opening occurs as most of the important action happens here. The title is showed in the final frame . We done this so it fades outs with the final part of the opening and effectively creates a cliff hanger. The only editing we really used here was the use of the sound of a gate crashing so they knew were the person running away was.
Is our particular design typical of an opening sequence? I believe that our particular design of our 9 frames is typical of an opening sequence for many reasons. Firstly it shows lots of titles so people know the industry side to it. It also has a frame with at least one of the characters init so the characters know who the story is going to revolve around. I Also think its typical of an opening sequence as it shows different locations and it gives an overview of what the actual opening is going to be like.
