We are going to show the sub genre of crime by using fast paced, short shot duration and close up camera work. We will also use music that adds suspense and tension, making the audience wonder what is going to happen next.

Opening scenes 1-6 need a remote looking location… We thought the best suited for this would be the Windsor Great Park in the day time, as its near to the school and seems most practical. As all 6 opening scenes are fairly similar we only need one location for them. The Great Park relates well to our sub genre as it is quite a lonely place, with many trees and forests in which crime could take place.However for the flashback, it needs to be somewhere normal and quite quiet at night time as it is the scene of abduction. There are many quiet roads nearby which is convenient for us. The roads will work well with our sub genre as it will have natural, ambient sound, and abductions are not likely to take place in busy roads.
When we will be filming at night time, there will be street lamps to add to the scene so that it will not be too dark. If it is too dark, we may have to use additional lighting. We would have to film at the same time everyday, so that the lighting is the same. When we will be filming in the Great Park, we may have to record dialogue separately because of the wind. It is a advantage that there will be leaves and trees around to add to the realism of the scene being in a woodland area.
The target audience for our opening sequence will be a 15. This is because there will be scenes of violence and suggestions of drug abuse, but this is not shown in graphic detail. There may be a few uses of bad language, but not strong frequent use. We have chosen to make the opening as a 15, as we have researched that thriller films are very popular within this age group and above.
GROUP ONE: Grace Bradbury, Amy Balchin and Mimi Dulake
