The films which inspired us to do the thriller genre are; The Dark Knight 2008 (Directed By Christopher Nolan) Silence Of The Lambs 1991 (Directed By Jonathan Demme) Wrong Turn 2003 (Directed By Rob Schmidt) A Clockwork Orange 1971 (Directed By Stanley Kubrick) Reservoir Dogs 1992 (Quentin Tarantino) The Descent 2005 (Directed By Neil Marshall) Our Inspiration
Our film is set in a dry, desolate forest where two unsuspecting bike riders are secretly being watched by a crazed killer. The Bike riders stumble across a dead body in the middle of the wood, as they examine the body they hear a rustling and see movement in the trees. At which point the two bike riders decide to leave. As they ride towards the exit, the killer is still stalking them following them, watching them, hidden within the forest. Our Film (Opening Plot)
Sounds (Diegetic And Non-Diegetic) There are many sounds which will be used in our production. There will be a heavy influence of non-diegetic sounds which will be used to enforce the transition between low intensity action and high intensity action. We will use a soundtrack to reinforce the change in pace. There will also be a use of diegetic sounds in the form of dialogue and also natural forest noises such as the rustling of leaves and the cracking of branches.
Distributor We Are Going To Use Pathe are a small British Independent film distributor who have experience in distributing films with both high budgets and low budgets which is why I believe they would be the best distributor to distribute out film. Pathe have also distributed many thriller films, for example, The Descent.
Target Audience The audience we are targeting our film at is the 15 to 18 age group as research into age groups show that teenagers aged 15 to 18 enjoy the thriller genre and often go to the cinema to watch a ‘scary’ thriller film.
