Checklist for my trailer
- Using imaginative shots for scenes that may typically be recorded
using another type of shot.
- Think carefully about titles, don't just go for standard and boring,
try and be as creative as possible.
- More attention must be paid to editing, don't just go with putting
all the shots together and running smoothly and be done with it, try
and use creative editing techniques.
- Slow motion can add tension and drama.
- Use lot of shots which are varied, this stops the visual aspect of
the trailer getting boring.
-Use close ups- to extreme close ups. It really helps to draw
attention to the subject that the audience need to be focusing on.
-Make titles to match the films logo, this keeps a consistent design
theme which is recognisable.
- Introduce background story
- Use an instrumental soundtrack without voice over as it keeps
the audience's attention on what is displayed on the screen.
- I need a variety of shots in different locations as it is unlikely for a
film to be set in entirely one location.
- Drama films often require a lot of close ups as they're based
mainly on human emotions and it is close ups that draw attention
- The editing techniques need to match the mood of that particular
scene, for example, you would not use a slow fade in a fast,
- The titles do not have to comply to grammatical or the rules of
standard English, in fact, if they do not it can help to tell the story
more effectively by helping to convey a message.
