  1. 1. Evaluation Question One
  2. 2. When creating our horror trailer, we used many horror forms and conventions in different ways. Researching into horror trailers has helped massively when figuring out how we wanted our trailer to be. We have used many conventions that we have found when researching into other trailers.
  3. 3. Narrative Within our trailer, we decided to release a lot of the storyline so that the audiences attention is grabbed, this often happens with low budget films. When creating our trailer we challenged the convention of how much information was released as most horror trailer don’t give very minimal information away. However, we did use the convention of making a low budget trailer.
  4. 4. Story and Plot When creating our horror trailer we wanted to create something that an audience would want to watch. The trailer is based upon a group of normal girls living in a house together, even though each individual is not seen throughout the whole trailer itself. The typical horror trauma begins as the group of girls find a box with a possessed diary inside of it. This is then what most of the trailer is based on as the diary managed to possess one of the girls. A range of personalities are then used as the possessed girls life completely changes.
  5. 5. Research Once we had came to the decision that we wanted to create a horror trailer, we researched into trailers within same genre. We looked into the different conventions of famous well-known horrors and found ways to place similar things into our trailer as we wanted our final project to turn out successful for an audience to watch. We then went into understanding the codes and conventions that would be used on a horror magazine cover and poster and researched into other ones so that our cover and posters would be successful and stand out to an audience. I found that a lot of them used a dark colour palette such as blacks and greys to connotate horror and danger and also red as this represents blood.
  6. 6. Editing While editing we had to get an idea of what the editing is like in successful horror trailers and looked at how each trailer is different, this helped when thinking about how we wanted our trailer to be set out. Our trailer is built up of little sections which have been placed in a chronological order. The trailers starts with things that happen later within the film so that this draws the audience in. The trailer we have created starts off with a dark shot which is not normally used within trailers. The final sections of the trailer are a build up to the final scare, we followed the convention of having a final scare as we found that this is what most successful horror trailers do.
  7. 7. Music and Sound Throughout our trailer we haven’t used much dialogue as this is a way to make the audience wonder what is going on, this challenges horror trailers as most of them involve a lot of speech throughout the whole of the trailer. When we decided on what music we wanted to use, we were inspired by the music from Sinister as this fits well with out trailer. To use the music from this, we had to get permission from the directors which we ended up getting. We used the music as a strong way of getting the audience attention.
