Task: Create a powerpoint about your top 3
Rules: No animation, no franchise and must
be different genres.
•Why have you chosen it?
•Why is it effective?
•How does it entice the audience to see the
Cinematography- the use of several close up shots of
the main interests make the trailer very distinctive
switching from intense to fun but recognising the
Music-the music is the sane throughout the trailer but
the use of volume makes it more intense. The
soundtrack becomes louder when the scene is intense.
Dialogue and voiceover-these not only introduce the
character but introduce the intensity with the topic of
conversation they choose to engage in and the
heightening of their voices.
Font style-very metallic and computerized emphasising the use of computers during the
Title-the title raises questions about what he maybe running from if he is running or what
operations he may be running for his boss.]
Colours-there is minimal use of colour in the titles emphasising the use of computers and
digital software throughout the film but the scenes of party are overrun with colour
emphasising the enjoyment and the satisfaction that people are feeling during the night.
Unique Selling Point-the USP would be that it is covering a modern day problem of
education fees which most people in the world suffer from but it is also showing a very
unique way of earning those fees to pay of debts which most people would not get involved
Cinematography-the use of distortion in between shots to create a broken live feed
look creates a unique presentation of the images captured but makes it realistic
making people believe that it would be similar to real life if the event ever
happened. Also switching between the film images and broken up Abraham Lincoln
quote gives a feeling of shattered hope.
Music-the intensity of the music matches the images we see
on screen and the hard hitting parts of the music match up
and are in time with intense scenes during the trailer.
Dialogue and voiceover-the voiceover of the newsreader to
begin the trailer immediately informs the viewer of the scenes
that occur during the trailer. Also the minimal dialogue that
occurs show signs of desperation and the urgency to achieve
the goals that they have set.
Title-the title indicates some panic by saying “White House
Down” as if it is the military speaking to each other and
informing others about the incident. It also backs up the
storyline involving an ex-military servant.
Colour-there is minimal uses of colour during the titles and
promotional posters bar the fire behind the character on the
poster but there is a use of colour during the movie with the
Cinematography-showing the introduction of the characters in a mixture of close
ups and mid shots not only allow the audience to know who is who but it also
shows how the characters meet each other. The progression shown of how they
begin their journey to becoming a makeshift family for a job.
Music-The music is upbeat throughout the trailer to
highlight the unusual circumstances and the
mismatch that is occuring during the film.
Dialogue and voiceover-this is used to introduce the
characters when the fake father is creating their
names but also gives us insight into what is occurring
during the film and what their intentions are.
Title-give us an idea of what the film is about by giving
us a typical introduction of what a family would say
when introducing themselves to someone. Gives irony
because they are not a real family.
Colour-the colours throughout the trailer are bright
which keeps the film upbeat and funny which is what
it is intended to be instead of being taken seriously
because of the involvement with drugs.
