Trailer Analysis Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Final Theatrical Trailer By Jamie Read
  • 2. The Reasons• The purpose of this slideshow is to show the reasoning behind certain things that I did in my trailer.
  • 3. Titles
  • 4. Opening Title• I made my ident the opening title so that people knew who created the film.• The fact it moves towards the audience makes it seem dominating.• There is a fog effect with a cloud sound too to add an eery feel.
  • 5. Phrases• I chose to have phrases of text to break up the video.• It also gave me ideal opportunities to do voiceovers.• Phrases of text also hint about the characters and what the film will be about.
  • 6. Actors• The actor names are on a different transition to the zooming of the phrases.• The converging of the letters is quite supernatural and this works well with the gothic theme I have gone with.
  • 7. Movie Name• The Watching title is at the end as I don’t want to give away what the film is at the start of the trailer.• It has fog effect and cloudy sounds like the ident.
  • 8. Transitions
  • 9. Fade Out• As the hand was supernatural I had the fade out to show that it was leaving.• It helps make the hand look spooky and leaves the audience wondering about it.• I left a blank space after the fade to show a time change.
  • 10. Cross Dissolve• I used this transition to show a change in time.• I could have left a blank space like some trailers but due to the fact it was a very small amount of time cross dissolve worked well.
  • 11. Disintegrate• I used this as it looks quite violent.• The scene leading to it is of the female grabbing the man by the throat.• Having the text torn from the screen to reveal this is a good effect to have.
  • 12. Video Effects
  • 13. Black and White• To show how my female character is a ghost I decided to use the black and white video effect.• Whenever she appears she is black and white and keeping that continuity shows that she is out of the real world.
  • 14. Flash• I used this effect to show violence.• When the man is hit at the same time as an impact there is a flash effect.• This demonstrates to the audiences the violence and gives the impression it is a damaging attack.
  • 15. Slow• This video effect was used to make the man look intimidating.• I did it with a shot where the man is breaking the 4th wall. His violent potential are shown to the audience through this.• I let the clip cut his head off when walking towards the camera to give the impression he is suffocating the audience.• This makes him appear very powerful.
  • 16. Audio Effects
  • 17. The Watching Music• This is constant throughout the trailer.• It’s there to add a spooky feeling to the movie trailer.• It isn’t very loud as it is only there for effect.
  • 18. Voiceover• A voiceover was done for the phrases.• This way the trailer makes sense even if someone missed or is unable to read the phrases.
  • 19. Heartbeat• I added this effect from iMovie.• I used it when the girl realises something is wrong.• The sound shows the panic that she is feeling.
  • 20. Cold Wind• This is used at the start of the movie.• I used it through the ident and the establishing shots.• It makes the area appear dark and gothic.• It is an easy way of making the shots seems spooky.
  • 21. Scary Accent• I used this every time the ghost appeared - after the hand slapped the glass.• I didn’t use this early on as there was no indication she was a supernatural being.• The accent alerts the audience to her supernatural presence.
  • 22. Foreboding• This sound effect was used once.• I used it when the girl was approaching the man.• I did this to show that there would be something bad going to happen.
