Evaluation Activity 1

  1. 1. Evaluation Activity 1<br />Nine screen grabs<br />MAX HILL<br />
  2. 2. This is not a typical to many title sequences, the setting is in a built up housing estate which would be an unusual setting for a horror or thriller film. There is also a bright light in the shot which is not the main point of focus, but the point which is, is not in the centre of the shot, which is not typical either. However the lighting and colours are quite typical of this genre of film. <br />
  3. 3. This style is very typical of showing the titles of a film. Having the title off centre is easy to view and looks aesthetically pleasing sue to its asymmetry. The blur is also quite typical as the titles are then separate from the film but still have a theme that relates back to the film. The blur does relate to our film as you may not be able to see what is happening but the colours will portray its characteristics.<br />
  4. 4. The character to the left is quite mysterious. We only see her face very briefly and most of her dialogue is off camera. This is typical of an opening title sequence as we want to ask questions to the audience that will be answered later, so need to leave the audience wanting to find the answers. This is most typical of horror and thriller genre films as we want to create more mystery and sinister-ness that other genres.<br />
  5. 5. This extreme close up is is also very typical of our genre of film title sequence. The close up does not allow the audience to see what else is going around the shot so this also create mystery and suspicion for the audience. However this is a completely different shot compared to what it is sandwiched between, this will also leave the audience answering questions as they have been taken away from the action very briefly with no direct answers to why.<br />
  6. 6. We have used many quick edits in our title sequence. This is quite usual of an opening title sequence as this sets the scene and gives the audience a sense of location. We have used the quick cuts to bring pace and make the audience anticipate something. This is much like a music video where the pace builds excitement for the viewer, which is what we wanted to bring to our film.<br />
  7. 7. I think this shot works really well. It is an extremely long shot with the natural viewing points being the furthest to the left and the furthest to the right, TV and actress. I believe this is very unusual as the audience have to think a little more to understand the scene. Another dimension is added to this scene when the loud bangs begin as the audience again have to think and understand the scene to make sense of the film. This is untypical as most title sequences are usually straight forward to their viewers.<br />
  8. 8. Again this is another extreme close up we have used in our film. This is part of an extremely close up montage where the character is trying to ensure her safety after hearing the loud bangs. This is untypical of a horror film title sequence, not the close ups, but the montage as this build a lot of tension early on in the film, which would usually be created later on in the film, however this fits our story line. The tension created works well and again leaves the audience wondering what will happen next.<br />
  9. 9. In this shot a slight silhouette is created and the sinister music begins again. I think this really adds to the feel of our sequence as we are unable to se her facial expressions here, and although we assume she is not the bad person in the film , this still creates unease for the audience. I believe this is quite typical for our genre of film, as they do not want to give away to much information to begin with, and this asks more questions like: Is this Character Good or Bad?<br />
  10. 10. Here we have repeated a part of the location in our film but the characters action are different. This was our master shot that we were able to go back to when the character was walking up and down the stairs but the second time she is aroused with suspicion after hearing the loud noises. This is very typical of a film, not just the title sequences but a mast shot to keep referring to become comfortable for the audience as when they recognise this they become familiar with it.<br />
