  • 6. c• From draft one to draft two, we made a few amendments to our opening sequence idea.• For this, we changed the ending as we received feedback that it wasn’t exciting and that there wasn’t a good climax.
  • 7. c• This was a challenge, as we found it hard to recreate the ending of the opening sequence, but we managed to overcome this obstacle.• This change helped us to improve overall because it made our opening sequence more appealing to our target audience, and made them want to watch the whole film.
  • 8. D Genre: Thriller• We have decided to use the genre Thriller.• We want to use this genre effectively by using a number of conventions such as crime, possession, haunting and revenge. We will use these conventions by using them in our opening sequence to thrill our audience which meets the conventions of a thriller.
  • 9. Genre D Thriller• This has changed since our first draft, as in our first draft, we thought our opening sequence was Thriller/Horror.• We corrected this and using conventions, we found that in actuality, our opening sequence was a Thriller.
  • 10. D Conventions of Thrillers...Conventions Example Image Use/Develop/ Challenge Fatal Use- Someone Attraction becoming obsessed after a relationship Challenge – using a female as the stalker instead of a male. Stalkers/ Obsession The Fan Develop – Instead of being obsessed with a woman and or a family, De Niro is obsessed with his favourite sports star and stalks him.
  • 11. D Conventions of Thrillers...Conventions Example Image Use/Develop/ Challenge The Hand Challenge- it does it That Rocks through using a The Cradle women as the crazy killer stalker who seeks revenge instead of the normal use of a male Stalkers/ Obsession Stir of Develop – Its more echoes obsession as Kevin Bacon tries to find the answers to an ever haunting mystery
  • 12. D Conventions of Thrillers...Conventions Example Image Use/Develop/ Challenge Eye For An Eye Develop – A woman is used as the person seeking revenge for the crime rather than the typical use of a male character. Crime The Ambulance Develop – Not giving the audience a clear understanding of what the crime actually is at first.
  • 13. D (Possible) Conventions of Thrillers...Conventions Example Image Use/Challenge/ Develop The Others Challenge – In this film they made you aware of the wrong ghost, whereas in regular horrors, the ghostly figure is clear. Ghosts House On A Use/Challenge – They Haunted Hill used the ghost to create fear amongst the audience and for the characters. They challenged it by making the ghost physically scary.
  • 14. Conventions of Thrillers...Conventions Example Image Use/Develop/ Challenge Use/Develop. The common feature of wrongful accusation was Primal used and it was developed because the Fear character accused was religious, young and didn’t fit the stereotypeMisidentification of who would be or Wrongful accused. Accusation. Challenge – It seems to the audience like there has been a The wrongful accusation, Usual as the only survivor is Suspects then questioned about the incident that occurred and this typically doesn’t happen.
  • 15. D Convention Explanation Use/Develop/ Challenge Our character is Using – We’re using haunted by a ghost this as we are doingGhosts/Spirits in her home. possession which can be quite a typical feature. Mysterious things Using– We’re are keep on happening using this to the character, and convention by Mystery as she becomes included mystery all aware of this, these the way through the happenings get plot. worse. At the end of film, Developing – We’re our character is fully developing this possessed. But because our Possession during the opening character is sequence, the possessed slowly character has a close and is aware of this encounter with the possession. ghost.
  • 16. Inspirational Films E What I found Inspirational about this scene is the kind of lighting they used through out the more dark scenes emphasises the emotions of the actor /actress
  • 17. EInspirational Films Black Swan What I found inspirational from this movie is the use of close up shots which was clearly present in this film It gives a clear picture of the characters emotions and helps the audience to connect with the character by seeing their emotions so closely.
  • 18. EInspirational Films – The Ring• The film that inspired me most is ‘The Ring’• I want to use a similar long shot in our opening sequence.• It’s an effective way of keeping the audience’s attention to the puddle of water whilst showing the character come up the stairs.• I also want to use a fast zoom in our opening sequence.
  • 19. E Use of costume and make-up in ‘The Ring’• Quite frightening to look at and an effective way of scaring the audience.• The lighting throughout the whole movie is kept more or less the same.• This creates a very eerie and creepy atmosphere in the movie, common in most horrors and thrillers.• I want to use dark lighting in our opening sequences .
  • 20. E Inspirational Films - The Haunting In Connecticut.• Another film that inspired me was ‘The Haunting in Connecticut ’• Its paranormal theme has inspired me to make my opening sequence about a haunting.• Slamming doors…• It especially inspired me to set my opening sequence in a building that’s haunted. E.g. a haunted house.• I would like to use old newspaperarticles such as this to briefly show thehistory of the area. 
  • 21. E Inspirational Films – Rosemary’s Baby• A scene from ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ also inspired me.Close up of hand reaching into cribDraws the audiences attentionto what shes doing.. Allows imagination to run Close up of Rosemary’s face It never shows what emphasises her shock, and wild making the audience she sees, only her reaction. uneasy. horror at what she sees.
  • 22. E Inspirational Films - GothikaThe particular scene I found inspirational about this film, wherethe scenes where the ghost interacts with the characters by leavingscratched out messages on their arms saying ‘Not Alone’. I thought that a similar idea would be a good addition to our idea, as the ghost tries to communicate with our character whilst she sleeps. I also took inspiration from the non-diegetic sounds, because they were creepy and added to what was already a tense film.
  • 23. EInspirational Films – Paranormal Activity Throughout the whole of Paranormal Activity, the characters use their own camera to document what is happening to them. I liked the idea of this as it makes the viewing experience more personal for the viewer as they literally see what the characters see. I want to use this in our opening sequence as the camera shots made it more exciting for the viewer, and we want to add tense excitement too.
  • 24. E Inspirational Films – The Grudge• The inspiration that I took from this film was part of the plot – that the ghost was trying to get revenge over her death.• I also felt that the setting added to the creepiness of the film, and so I hope we can re-create this when we make our opening sequence.
  • 25. E Inspirational Films – Cabin FeverThe camera shot for this scene The props of thisis a mini close up shot of his movie is veryface to demonstrate disturbing for thefear, disgust and anxiety to the audience as it hasaudience. disgusting images of blood everywhere.
  • 26. E Inspirational Films – Cabin Fever The movie has some kind of old fashioned humour to it which makes it more entertaining and interesting to the audience.In this scene the lighting was very dimwhich makes it more scary because itemphasis death, danger and fear. Itcreates suspense to the audience asthey don’t know what is going tohappen next.
  • 27. E Inspirational Films – The VillageA scene where a character This scene has a mid shot ofdiscovers about the a character who issupernatural things happening illustrating fear and also ofin the village in order to prove the monster destroyingto the people that there is things in the village.something going on.
  • 28. F Theme/Concept • An idea we had for the theme was Revenge and the concept was Possession. Injustice Ghosts Grievance Twists & TurnsVictims Enigma Revenge & Hidden identities Possession! Vicious Ghouls Suspicious circumstances Unsuspecting Mysterious Shocking Someone who has revelations been wronged
  • 29. F Theme/Concept Another idea we had for the theme was Justice and concept was Death Murder & Manslaughter Righteousness Revenge Moral Rightness.Vendetta Justice & Death! A Cause Mystery Decay Supernatural Life After Death
  • 30. F Theme/ Concept• These were our previous themes and concepts.• WWW: We had a range of different words which helped us when thinking of our opening sequence.• EBI: We could have thought of more themes and concepts.
  • 31. F Theme/Concept• We did not change our themes or concepts because it was suitable for what we wanted to do.• We kept the theme revenge and the concept possession because the keywords on that brainstorm helped to provoke new ideas regarding our opening sequence.
  • 32. F Theme/Concept• The way in which we came down to one idea is as we like Gledis’s idea but had problems with the choice of set being the school• We later added elements from Abigails opening sequence and developed on that• There were some bumps in the road as to the ending of the sequence but after meetings we came up with solutions
  • 33. G Research Of Topic• http://fspp.net/warn%20poss.htm• On this website, I found all of the believed warning signs of demonic possession and this all linked in with what we had originally decided on for our opening sequence.• The warning signs were things like self mutilation, changes in personality and attitude and blackouts in memory.
  • 34. G Research Of Topic• On this website, I also found that the outward manifestations of ghosts also linked in with our opening sequence. The manifestations that we had already chosen were listed on this website, and it included things such as:• Knocking, banging or pounding being heard in one room.• Electrical appliances turning on by themselves.• A feeling of being watched.• Scratching sounds being heard without an obvious source.• And objects seemingly moving by themselves.
  • 35. G Research Of Topic• http://www.yourghoststories.com/real-ghost- story.php?story=2298• On this site I found out that a girl who had been possessed by a demonic creature at the age of 12, was seeing shadows appearing from walls, covering all over her, hearing mocking noises and could see a white round ball rolling towards her mother’s room and also hear noises when she is alone at home.• She was possessed until the age of 22yrs but still had a strange feeling that someone was watching her when she went to her night shift at the mental home.
  • 36. H Idea Development Option – Our Previous Ideas. (the whole film)• It starts with the opening sequence, where strange ghostly things are happening to the main character.• The main character slowly begins to find out information about who lived in her home before her. She attempts to tell her family and friends but they dismiss it.• The main character has a series of close encounters with the ghost. Whilst sleeping she dreams of its life in the home she now inhabits.• The ghost possess the main character slowly. Thinking she is on drugs, her family hosts an intervention for her. At this intervention, she is fully possessed.• Her family and friends, whilst trying to restrain her, collectively kill the main character and burn her body. The cycle continues, with the audience being shown a family moving into a newly built home where the main characters house used to be.
  • 37. H What Went Well/ Even Better If• WWW: Our teacher said that she would happily watch this film if it was an actual film due for release. This showed us that our idea’s were good.• EBI: The ending was less drastic, as it seemed unlikely that the characters family would burn her body after accidentally killing her.
  • 38. Idea Development Option – Our H Previous Ideas. (the opening sequence)• The character is at her desk typing and researching ghosts, hauntings and the history behind where her house is situated.• Suddenly, her television turns on by itself, she grabs her camera to document this strange experience.• After turning off the television, she walks back to her desk, and the another person’s reflection is seen by the audience as they walk past her television.• She hears another a noise coming from the drawer behind her, she scrambles to find out what it is. She finds an old photograph in the drawer that clearly doesn’t belong to her of a young girl wearing a similar necklace to the character.• She hears a scream or thump coming from downstairs, she rushes to find the source of it and ends up in the bathroom. She sees the tap dripping and as she turns it off, she finds that the sink is full of blood.
  • 39. H What Went Well/ Even Better If• WWW: Our opening sequence idea has good pace, and the tension builds throughout the two minutes.• EBI: The ending didn’t let the rest of the two minutes down as the rest of the opening sequence built tension and then the final moments made it all slump.
  • 40. H Idea Development Option• We decided to keep the majority of our idea the same, and so we only edited the final part of our opening sequence to make it more thrilling.
  • 41. H Idea Development Option – Our New Ideas (the whole film)• It starts with the opening sequence, where strange ghostly things are happening to the main character.• The main character slowly begins to find out information about who lived in her home before her. She attempts to tell her family and friends but they dismiss it.• The main character has a series of close encounters with the ghost. Whilst sleeping she dreams of its life in the home she now inhabits.• The ghost possess the main character slowly. Thinking she is on drugs, her family hosts an intervention for her. At this intervention, she is fully possessed.• Her family and friends, whilst trying to restrain her, collectively kill the main character and dispose of her body in a house fire. The cycle continues, with the audience being shown a family moving into a newly built home where the main characters house used to be.
  • 42. H Idea Development Option – Our New Ideas (The opening sequence)• The character is at her desk typing and researching ghosts, hauntings and the history behind where her house is situated.• Suddenly, her television turns on by itself, she grabs her camera to document this strange experience and this is seen from her point of view.• After turning off the television, she walks back to her desk, and the another person’s reflection is seen by the audience as they walk past her television.• She hears another a noise coming from the drawer behind her, she scrambles to find out what it is. She finds an old photograph in the drawer that clearly doesn’t belong to her of a young girl wearing a similar necklace to the character.• She hears a thump coming from downstairs, she rushes to find the source of it, running through the corridors in her house she tracks the noise down to the bathroom and she listens outside the door. As she slowly reaches for the handle, someone else’s hand slams on the glass door from the inside.
  • 43. Idea Development Option H• From draft one to this current draft, we discussed a number of alternate endings for our opening sequence. We decided that the ending we have chosen: “She hears a thump coming from downstairs, she rushes to find the source of it, running through the corridors in her house she tracks the noise down to the bathroom and she listens outside the door. As she slowly reaches for the ” gives the best handle, someone else’s hand slams on the glass door from the inside. climax out of all of our discussed options. Alternate ending

  • 54. L Enigma• The way we want to create enigma is through the combination of sound and pace. The actress is never fully calm which also keeps the audience on edge.• The end of the opening sequence will leave the audience wanting to know what happens next as the ending is unexpected. You cannot see what the baby sees.
  • 55. L Enigma• We’ve improved our creation of Enigma from draft one, because we have made the ending of our opening sequence more thrilling and this helps to create more enigma as the audience will want to carry on watching to find out why the character is being haunted and what will happen to her.
  • 56. Target Audience! M• Age: It is aimed at 15+, this is because the main character in the film is a teenager and a younger generation can relate to this because it will appeal to them.• Location: the fact that it is set in London will appeal to a great number of people who actually live in London. This is because the audience will be able to relate to the character and the film and therefore will be more affected by the film. E.g. many people who live in London were terrified of using the LondonUnderground after watching the movie ‘Creep’ which is set in Charing Cross tubestation. This scared many people who used the station, which is the major aim of ahorror/thriller film.• Lifestyle: The movie itself is quite slow pace this doesn’t take away from it’s excitement. Therefore our target audience would be people who lead an active life and enjoy trills and sitting on the edge of their seat whilst watching a movie. The mystery and enigma throughout our film will appeal to our target audience.
  • 57. M Why Our Target Audience Will Be Interested In Our Film!• The Idea: Our target audience will be interested in our idea because it is thrilling and exciting and creates mystery (the history behind the house and the ghost). This will intrigue our audience, because they will want to find out more. The unexplained paranormal events that take place will interest people who regularly watch thrillers• Form: We want to use very creep and eerie music in some parts then fast pace violin music to create excitement. This will interest our audience because the are aiming our film at thrill seekers. We also want to use quick cutaways to create excitement and build up tension for the audience. (running through the corridors). However will we also use smooth camera movements to build up tension that will lead up to the climax at the end.• Conventions: We are targeting our film at an audience who regularly watch horrors and thrillers with conventions such as terror, and we will intrigue people who enjoy being frightened by films.• We will include ghosts and spirits in order to attract an audience who are interested in supernatural happenings and life after death. (Ghost girl). We want to satisfy their interest in paranormal activities by including spirits and weird unexplained events such as the TV switching on by itself.
  • 58. MOur Questionnaire.
  • 59. Actor/Character Props/Costume N Gledis Drew The Others The Unborn• This character meets stereotypes of a helpless young girl who is haunted by a ghost• Some movies in which this is displayed are listed above.
  • 60. N Character• We have developed our character from draft 1 by stretching Gledis’ acting ability. In this opening sequence, she has to convey more emotions than she would’ve in our first opening sequence. Her hair and clothing will be neater to represent her innocence and make her appear more vulnerable• Other than this no other changes improvements where made
  • 61. Location• We have one locations with this idea.• The first, is a bedroom in which all of these supernatural things happen to the character in. There are no health and safety risks in this location. (Supernatural things)
  • 62. Location• This location is nearly always accessible as its my room, however, the only problem we may face with this location is when we can film as my mother works from home and noise from filming could be an issue.• We can get there from school by getting the 266 or 260 bus to Church Road and then a short walking distance, where we’d have to cross four non-major roads.
  • 63. Location
  • 64. P Narrative• We are using Linear Narrative for our opening sequence as the structure of it is all in chronological order and so the audience follow through with the plot.• This has not changed from draft one, because we are using the same narrative.
  • 65. Q Tvzetan Todorov: Narrative StructureTzvetan Todorov is a Franco- Equilibrium: it is a narrative thatBulgarian philosopher. He lived in starts with a state of harmony,France since 1963 with his wife and example a group of people enjoyingtwo children. their live. Disequilibrium: it is a world of stability which involves disruption, example when an evil event happens to character in a movie. New Equilibrium: it is when the evil in a movie is removed and it restores harmony.
  • 66. Q It contrast with disequilibrium because it has some disturbing images in the middle the movieThis describes equilibrium asit has the character enjoying This links with newhimself because he thinks equilibrium as it showsthat everything is perfect. a peaceful atmosphere between the characters
  • 67. QBinary Opposition: This is a sophisticated butimportant idea that will help you understand howideas and meanings are being shaped, created orreinforced in a text. It is a theory of meaning andan idea that can be applied to all texts; it isespecially useful when analysing poetry wheremeaning has been compressed into a very fewwords.

  • 70. Q Film Theory.• We aren’t using Propp’s or Strauss’ film theory as neither fit into what we want our opening sequence to be.• We have no hero’s in our idea and so Propp’s film theory is ineffective for us, and we are not creating ideas with our opening sequence, and so Binary Opposition is also ineffective for us.
  • 71. Q Film Theory.• We’re applying Todorov’s film theory, as at the beginning of our film idea, the character’s life is in a state of harmony. (Equilibrium)• As our idea continues, the character finds more and more out about the ghost as it slowly possesses her. (Disequilibrium)• Finally, the death of the character brings final peace and harmony, or so the audience think until a new family move into the same house. (New Equilibrium)
  • 72. R Film Distribution• Film distributors we would like to use are...• Lions Gate Entertainment• Momentum Pictures• Film 4

  • 76. R Columbia Pictures• It’s an American film production and distribution company.• Columbia Pictures now forms part of the Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group, owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment.• Columbias major contract stars were Jean Arthur and Cary Grant (who was shared with RKO Pictures).• It is one of the leading film companies in the world, a member of the so-called Big Six.• It was one of the so-called Little Three among the eight major film studios of Hollywoods Golden Age.

  • 78. R THE REASONS WHY I CHOSE COLUMBIA PICTURES• I chose this because they make lots of horror films that relate to our genre.• We aim a big hit for our genre so we can relate it to the budget of Columbia pictures.• It is an inspiration to film distributing and production.• They have Co-production companies who help and support them in exhibition and going into cinemas.
  • 79. S Titles And Credits• Titles and credits from real films: • The Ring • Se7en • Rosemarys Baby • Stephen Kings "IT" • Frankenstein (1931)
  • 80. S Titles And Credits of ‘The Ring’• The font appears hand written A handwritten style font would emphasise the‘Mental illness’ aspect of our film as the textwould appear messy and scattered, as if written bysomeone in panic or distress, (mentally unstable)• The ‘O’s in the text match the ring of the well in the filmThis emphasises the theme of the film, which has inspired us to use a font style which gives clues to the audience as to what our film will be about without giving too much away.
  • 81. S Titles And Credits of ‘Se7ev’• Similarly to ‘The Ring’, ‘Se7en’ also has handwritten style fonts that are often spaced out or slanted. • The most inspiring thing about ‘Se7en’ is the animation of the text. • The quick bright flashes of the text create excitement for the audience and keep them on the edge of their seat which is essential for thriller films and has inspired us to display our text in a similar way.
  • 82. STitles And Credits of ‘Rosemary’s Baby’• The font style and colour are somewhat unusual as it does not link with anything in the movie.• However the fact that its so uncommon for a Horror/Thriller, makes it unique and unpredictable. • Baby pink colour, however symbolises the innocence of Rosemary’s character. •Similarly, our main character also possesses a sense of innocence.• This has inspired us to use a font not normally associated with Thrillers to make it as unpredictable as possible.

STitles And Credits of Stephen King’s ‘IT’ The title of the film is the The bright red symbolises only text in this colour blood and gore therefore (bright red) and font style. attracting the target audience as it is common in Horror/Thrillers.

  • 85. S The colour of Our Text• At fist we considered using a deep red font colour as it is usually associated with Horrors/Thrillers.  ‘What Lies Within’• However once we changed our opening sequence from a Horror to a Thriller we decided that a colour associated with blood and gore would not be appropriate plus too common and predictable.• We then took inspiration from ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ which uses a baby pink to signify her characters innocence. • In a similar way we decided that white would be the best option for us as it resembles something pure.  ‘What Lies Within’
  • 86. S The Font of Our Text• After exploring different fonts from real films and opening credits we narrowed our favourites down to:• Block Capitals e.g. ARIAL BLACKThis could represent a sense of seriousness about the film. The houses being built where a Mental Institution once was. The fire that was used to cover a murder.• Handwritten style Font e.g. Bradley Hand ITCWe would use this to resemble the mental state of the characters by making the writing as unstructured and disorientated as possible.• Old Fashioned Font e.g. Brush Script MTThis could emphasises the time period of when the Mental Hospital was running. It gives the audience an insight to the film.
  • 87. S Our final Font style and colour• We finally narrowed it down to the font we felt was most appropriate for our opening sequence and genre.• We wanted to chose something that gave little clues about the film but not too much and wasn’t too predictable.• We decided to go with a handwritten style font as we hoped this would emphasise the ‘Mental illness’ aspect of our film as the text would appear messy and scattered, as if written by someone in panic or distress, (mentally unstable).• Inspired by ‘The Ring’ and ‘Se7en’• We were also inspired by ‘Se7en’ to make the text flash onto the screen and fade away.

  • 89. TCopyright free music and sounds for our genre
  • 90. T Music That Inspires Us• Non-diegetic music that inspires us is the background music in Jaws. Its full of suspense and its quite terrifying which adds to the thrill of the film.• We also want to have iconic non-diegetic music that our audience will remember.
  • 91. T Music That Inspires Us• We like distinctive sounds like the sound of typing, creaking and eerie diegetic sounds in films. Also, slow footsteps with emphasis on each step as this also builds the tension.• This makes it more realistic as it scares people more and they can relate to it.
  • 92. T Our Music• We would use these non-diegetic sounds to build excitement and tension as our character is running through the hallway.• We would use diegetic sounds as she is working at her desk and walking to try and find the noises within her room.
