On the first poster, the use ofa wobbly white circle brightglow represents a circle ofdanger. This shows the audiencethat the phrase "the ring"circled in the middle of thecircle determines manysayings about it. With just ablack background, the words“the ring" in white and awobbly circle shows signs of ahorror movie. The use ofhandwritten informal fontalso strengthens the idea thatthis is a horror film.The second poster shows "THE RING" in capitalized formal font to grab the audiences attention. Also thetext is a little distorted to emphasize a scary horrific atmosphere surrounding the text. This techniqueenables the audience to imagine an uncomfortable scenery if they watch the film. The use of the womanas the text color represents a seriousness in the horror film. Light blue, dark blue, white and black shadesof the setting with just a well in the middle of the film represents the danger of that well. This shows theaudience that the well will be a main setting in the film. The significance of the womans body expressionas a screaming woman amplifies the fact this is most likely a horror film.
This is a close up of the womans face to express andextract her emotions. In this scene, the woman hearsher son say "I watched The Ring" which is why theshot from the womans close up to the close up to theringing telephone is significant. Her body expressionsshow a distressed uncomfortable feeling representinga sense of the build up of something happening. Thenext shot is a medium to a close up of the phone torepresent the importance of the phone. It shows theaudience that the phone is one of the main props usedin the film as a couple of seconds was used to film thefilm. In these 3 shots, it demonstrates a range of close ups to identify the actors expression. I have noticed in this horror trailer, more close-ups are used more than any other type of shot e.g. medium, wide, long etc. The three examples to the right just show the same person in a horrific position via misc-en-scene. Shot numbered 1 was used as the title text for the poster "The Ring". I think this was a good choice as this picture represented a series of enigmas (such as what is this film about? Why is she screaming? Whats going to happen next? and vice versa).
