Death Camp Evaluation Death Camp Evaluation Presentation Transcript

  • Death Camp evaluation
    The most vital part we had to get right with our codes and conventions was our title. We decided to name our film 'Death Camp', this being relevant and significant as the victim in our film ‘Sam Lane’ is at an unknown location and sets up a camp which results in his death. We did however at a later date realise that this could be misleading when we thought about the death camps in world war 2.
    However, our film poster and trailer film quickly lets the audience know what the real meaning is for the title. 'Death Camp' makes the audience know it’s a thriller straight away this also portrays an image of death. Our opening scene is unclear as you do not know what the character has been running from. This sets the scene nicely for a movie.
  • Characters in the film
    The characters in the film have been thought about a lot, their appearance portrays a lot of information to the audience and its essential to get this right, we first started with the group of lads which are going camping, we mind mapped how we wanted them to look and what message we wanted to portray through them, which was that they are average, outgoing teenagers going camping and having a good time. the audience can relate to these people as a lot of teenagers will be watching the film themselves. The casual wear is the perfect image for the teenagers as younger people can relate to them.
    A vital part of Mise en scene was the light blonde hair of one of the victims which illustrates to the audience his innocence, however we couldn’t have the victims all blonde as this could look to set up so we also had a teenager which black hair, this is good as the audience could think that he is the murderer because of his big frame and black hair, he also appears a bit older than the rest. The good guys wear jeans, a hoody and black pumps this is to relate to ordinary people and to convey this could happen to anybody, which makes the film more realistic. You don’t get to see the villain in the trailer as this would give way the mystery of who the killer is. In the trailer we use the murders perspective using the point of view shot.
  • Plot
    We also spent a great deal of time thinking about our storyline, we needed a basic idea to set the trailer off, we finally decided that we would set the film in a forest .The first scene starts at the forest where the teenagers are arriving from their car journey
    it then cuts to various shots of woods and lake which establishes the scene ,this also creates a eerie feeling as the music makes you feel uncomfortable, these shots also create tension and you know something bad is going to take place.
  • Script
    Opening Scene: Car scene driving to woods
    A mixture of normal and hand held shots. Point of view shots inside the car of lads joking about the trip ahead. Long shots of car driving through road near trees, low angle of car wheels going past. Long shot of car going past from side view then cuts to close up shot of ‘keep out’ sign.
    Second Scene: Lads set up camp in woods but are being watched
    Long shot sat around camp fire, with tent set up, shadow on tent from fire of figure going past , lads are oblivious to it . Long shots watch lads through trees messing about recording themselves. But mix this with hand held shots that are being filmed from the lads point of view of each other messing about.
    Turning point (Faster Pace): One lad goes back to car for beer while rest of lads set up fishing
    Close ups as lads tell him to go get beer and long shot as the throws the car keys to him,
    Cuts to shot of him going towards car then low shot angle showing villains feet on other side of the car then lad falls in front of the camera, with blood on his face.
    Cuts to rest of lads fishing long shot from other side of lake and close up of lads confused face, then a mid shot to show the other boys too as he says ‘what’s that at the other side of the lake’
    Music goes faster as the camera pans across the lake to show the same lad who’s been killed on the other side of the lake partly in the water. Blood over his chest and face.
    Fast shots near end of trailer:
    From this point on lots of fast shots of lads running through woods mixed with handheld shots. Through trees.
    Low shots of feet running.
    Water splashed on someone’s face.
    Side view cuts to front view of someone running through trees.
    Someone crawling in front of car.
    Close-up of someone turning to someone then saying ‘go get help’
    Someone crawling through woods.
    Close ups of peoples faces screaming
    Title of the film comes on at the end
    Final Scene: Two people running towards the car trying to open the lock.
    Quick and close-up shots of someone driving away. Shots of us looking around. Shot of the mirror while someone looking into it. Over the shoulder shot shows both lads turn around and something rising from the backseat with a hood on, then cuts to blank screen

  • Creating The Magazine
    I started by creating a title. I chose the name ‘screen’ as I thought that this was relevant to the cinema as that is what you initially think of straight away. Using ‘Empire’ and ‘Total Film’ as my main style icons I created a large title across the layout. I chose the colour red and it stands out both on white and black. As our image is dark I created a black background as I was making the layout. I also added a white drop shadow to make it stand out more. I also added some font underneath. A website ‘screenmagazine.com’ and a tag line ‘the worlds biggest film magazine. I think this is realistic and stands out well.
    I then added some font across the top to help promote the main article which is about our film. I wrote ‘death camp.. world exclusive’ and added a picture of some trees in the middle to make it more interesting.
  • The Magazine
    I created some type for the main article on the front cover. I made the words ‘death camp’ a lot larger than the rest as well as a different colour. So it would stand out the most. I also highlighted the word ‘exclusive’ in gold so that stood out too. I added a red font for the final section about the interview with the cast to also make it stand out as well as it breaking it up from the other section.
    I then created a ghostly effect which also give an effect of movement, making the image more dramatic. I did this by layering three images from the photo shoot on top of each other and changing the opacity of each.
    For the Image in the background, I took this image taken on set while filming...
  • The poster
    I created this poster in phototshop by combining the image of the tent and person with the background unsing the select tools and layers I also put the image of the background overlayed into the tent slightly with a low opacity to create a good effect. I also echoed the image of the person to the left which also adds a bit of edge to the image. I did this by cutting it out with the select tool and copying it, changing the layer to 'overlay' and changing the opacity to low. I also changed the colour of the tent to a dark green as the red stood out too much , i wanted a neutral, dark colour for this dark thriller. I added a drop shadow to some of the text to make it stand out more against the background. I also used some brushes for photoshop of blood splatters around the sides of the image but mainly over the title 'death camp' which adds to the storyline more, showing the viewer that the film will be gory.
  • Audience feedback
    From our audience feedback we learnt that our trailer would be a success as the audience wanted to know more about the stalker and what actually happens to the people in the woods . This is like the film Shrooms and I think how the friend whom kills all her friends was a good success .
    However the things that didn't go so well was the mysterious part of it some of the audience said that it was too unclear and they would like a more straight forward trailer so they know what they are going watching .
