Evaluation task 1

  1. 1. Evaluation Task 1
  2. 2. • One can see our thriller (on the left) captures a similar shot to the shot from the lovely bones on the right. The camera shoots from below, angled upwards to give “villain” more of a presence and to give him a more imposing personality. We have tried to shroud the characters face with the tripod; so only glimpses can be seen. Similarly, in ‘the lovely bones’ half the man’s face is shrouded; this forms connotations of bad intentions and a twisted plot.
  3. 3. • In both of these hands shots, the music is deliberately subtle but is essential in creating an ominous atmosphere. In the lovely bones (right) the distorted sound of a knife being scraped is used as the man fetches the bottle opener. In Reprisal, our thriller (left) the music deliberately fades before the man enters the basement and then re-emerges with the sound of low piano keys as the zip opens. Both of these sounds create tension within the piece.
  4. 4. • Once again, the Lovely Bones shows an establishing shot fairly near the beginning of the murder scene, to show the isolation of the room. We tried to do a similar thing with our shot; showing an establishment of the basement and trying to create a similar isolation. • The man then walks with his back to the camera to the other side of the room which gives a sense of the depth of the room. We again, do a similar thing in our thriller as one can see…
  5. 5. • The above right photo is from the movie ‘one hour photo’. As you can see, in this tense scene, the door lock is being opened, or locked. We have captured a similar shot in our opening title sequence. It creates the sense of isolation and mystery, as well as a sense of entrapment.
  6. 6. • “The Usual Suspects”, a famous thriller uses the same “feet shot” to create mystery and an ominous atmosphere, that we use in our thriller. Clearly, this technique is effective in creating a sense of suspense.
  7. 7. • “The Usual Suspects”, a famous thriller uses the same “feet shot” to create mystery and an ominous atmosphere, that we use in our thriller. Clearly, this technique is effective in creating a sense of suspense.
