STORYBOARD FOR OUR TEASER
By Hannah Thurlow
In this shot we wish to use Lora, we have decided
to dress her in black and a mask, to create the
villan (murderer) in our plot line. We will be using a
tripod and camera and moving Laura from one
position to the other as shown on screen and then
role the images into one to create the images of
flashing movements making it feel unnatural and
We wish to shot this down a dark alley with a single
lamp post (if possible one that will flash) to give the
dark lighting and draw to the character.
Lastly we wish to use the Lord’s Prayer in the
sound track over our trailer and the particular line
‘Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.’ to
create the religious and eerie element.
Within this shot we wish to film in my bedroom.
We will be filming a girl either myself or Alana being
dragged from their bed and the other girl trying to
follow. This will be hand held and either from the
Killer’s or the victim's POV depending on which
looks better and has a more dramatic effect on the
audeince when filmed.
This scene we wish to do at night where the
‘cult’ religion group are having a meeting
around a fire.
We are using some of our friend to be these
people and dressing them in a uniformed
masks and clothes so they match, having a
joint identity. We will be using the bonfire
patch in my garden for this scene.
We again will be using some of the Lord’s
prayer in this scene. ‘And forgive us of our
trespasses for we forgive those who
trespass against us.’
This will be shot at a canted angle. And perhaps
also a high angle.
We will use a shot of the piece of paper being
thrown across a table, where the words ‘I want to
join’ will be written on it.
We will shot this in three shots each one will be the
paper at a different angle movng across the paper.
This will be a shot of Alana crying and struggling,
whilst being dragged through the mud and the
leaves, giving the impression of being in a wood.
The audience will not know who is dragging her, as
the camera will be focused on her and will be hand
held by myself or Laura running after her. Engaging
This will be a close up of the leader of the cult
group, explaining the tasks in which they will have
to embark on to become part of the group.
The background will be black and a single light will
focus the audience’s attention to the character,
which I feel will look very effective.
Here we have a mid shot of Laura continuing to
drag Alana through the woods, this time we see she
has a knife with her and could potential harm her.
We will see her raise the knife and bring it down
before she actually touches Alana, this should
increase suspension and create a tense
atmosphere within the audience.
Here will be a blank black screen with the directors
(our) names. With the previous films made such as
queen Bee (year 12) and Haunting of Therfield
(beginning of year 13).
Here again will be a repeated shot of shot 3, but the
scene will be split into two parts and so the footage
will not be exactly the same.
In this part we shall have the chanting of the lord’s
prayer again with the lines ‘And lead us not into
temptation but deliver us from evil.’
Here will be a blank black screen with the Title.
This shot I feel will be the most dramatic
shot that we will use.
We plan to hang Alana upside down in a
tree and film her from a canted angle mid-
shot. Where we will film her opening her
eyes and then open her mouth to scream.
We will then cut the shot.
Alana will have make-up applied to give the
impression of blood and bruises and so the
audience will be curious as to why she is
This will be a closing shot of the release date and
then a scream played and so the audience believe
that it is Alana screaming.
We believe this will be dramatic and stick in the
