After experiencing poor quality with the Panasonic camcorder as shown in my first draft of my trailer, I was very pleased to with the outcome of the Nikon camera. Imovie-Imovie- This software was very effective and helpful during the production process. Imovie has varies effective editing which contributed to the success of my trailer. For instance the slow motion technique which I used on the swing. This effect added terror. In addition the sound effects on this software helped me a lot. For instance in the first sequence of the trailer, i used sound effects on Tracy’s voice so it sounded like she was in an empty room alone, whereas Alice and Ryan who were acting as the police (voiceovers) had a sound effect that sounded slightly distance to emphasize that this was a phone call conversation.

  6. 6. Research & PlanningResearch & Planning
  7. 7. Research & PlanningResearch & Planning Wordpress allowed me to have access to other blogs. I looked at previous A2 coursework and observed what they did well and what could of included. This helped me to reflect on my work. For instance if there was areas I could improve. Survey Monkey helped me a lot in terms of gaining audience feedback and reaching my target audience. I had created a survey for each of my products. As well as using survey Monkey to gain audience feedback, I also used Twitter because it is a very popular social networking site therefore will reach a large amount of people. This website was used to research existing horror movies in order to understand the concept of typical conventions of a horror trailer. I watched the Bay trailer on IMDB and was inspired by the introduction of this trailer, this is where I adopted the emergency phone call conversation however changed it, to make it my own. I used Wikipedia for some of my institutional research and film trailers. I also used this site when researching Saul Bass. I used Google for my main search engine. This search engine was very fast and efficient. For Example; I searched to look at narrative theories and film trailers and came up with various useful websites. Youtube allowed me to search for songs that sound childish and scary at the same time. This is where I discovered ‘The innocence’ by Deborah Kerr and I also searched existing horror trailers to give me ideas. When researching my genre, I created a mood board which I did on Photoshop. This helped me to visualise the genre.
