Proposal<br />Kerry Thompson, Lauren Gorman, Emily Norman and Chloe Georgiades<br />
Ideas Rejected:<br />In our interview, we asked our audience what they thought of some of our ideas. <br />Keeley, who is a 14 year old teenager which is the age of our target audience told us some ideas which she thought wouldn’t work:<br /><ul><li>Our original idea was too have a female as a stalker, however keeley told us that she thought this wasn’t a good idea as most people are use to men as the ‘bad’ people. We took what keeley said into account and have decided to use a male as our stalker to keep the audience engage to what they are use to seeing.
Our group discusses what the opening would be like if it started with a murder. However we all agreed that this wouldn’t be a good idea as it may give too much of the rest of the film away. The way how we are going to work around this idea is have clues of previous murders which have taken place so that it doesn’t give away too much of the story. </li></li></ul><li>Inspiration:<br />Below our some video clips which inspired us with our idea:<br />Prom Night<br />Prom Night was one of the films that inspired our idea. It is about a stalker that is obsessed with female students and at the prom night aims to kill all the female students. This gave us an idea of how we should represent the victim in our opening.<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyhtVkiTn8I<br />
When a stranger calls<br />When a stranger calls isn’t exactly based around a stalker but it has parts which inspire us such as the telephone ringing with an unknown caller. <br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IY06922dL2s<br />
Below are pictures that we found inspiring as when we came across them we thought they would work well within a thriller or horror film because they’re hidden away in places that look and seem mysterious. The road looks like a place a stalker would wait around at and the spy hole always makes thrillers more exciting!<br />
Casting<br />For our thriller opening we have decided that Lauren will be in the video herself because we auditioned people to play the role for the character but we didn’t think they were good enough, we could not find the right people to play the role of the character. <br />Lauren will play a key character in the film and so therefore will be acting in the thriller opening.<br />As our film is based on a stalker, we need someone (particularly a boy) to play the role of the stalker. Kerry’s friend Ben has volunteered to play the role of the stalker so we have decided to film him acting to see if will be the best person to act as our stalker.<br />
Our Group have decided that we will play music throughout the whole opening so it creates a suspense atmosphere .<br />We have decided that we will create our own music but we have been looking at a few thriller themes and openings that interest and give us a few ideas for our music. We will be playing music at the point where the opening is getting quite dramatic and scary so we want to create music that sounds dramatic, creates tension and suspense and is a little bit scary.<br />Jaws - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvCI-gNK_y4<br />Psycho - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tek8QmKRODw<br />Mimic - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtyuc2Rz2mQ<br />Possible Music<br />

Also we will have a protagonist who is a victim in the thriller.<br />Our opening is actually a psychological thriller as it is about a stalker , it will contain menace, murder and violence .<br />Thriller Conventions<br />
Final idea:<br />Our final idea for our thriller opening is;<br />A nor mal teenage girl having nightmares about an unknown man in a white hoodie, you can see the girl having nightmares and then you can suddenly see what she is dreaming about and then it flashes back to her tossing and turning in her bed from her nightmares. It will then turn into reality where you can see that this man in a white hoodie is actually real and the audience will be able to see that he is stalking the girl and she does not know it yet.<br />Tagline:<br />The known is unknown.<br />
