IN WHAT WAY DOES YOUR MEDIA PRODUCT USE,DEVELOP OR CHANGE FORMS AND CONVENTIONSOF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS? For the short film we decided to follow conventions through props and locations. We used a sharp object as the weapon and used locations such as a graveyard and a garage. However we decided to break traditional horror convention by making our killer female.
Weapon We stuck to the conventions of a horror by Image using a sharp instrument to kill our victim. Location Image The locations we filmed in were a graveyard and a garage. Both of these locations are conventional to a horror film Image
CharactersOur killer is unconventional to a horror film. Although the killerconventionally comes from a troubled past that motivates them tomurder, she is female whereas in a conventional horror film thekillers are usually male.Our victim is stereotypical to a horror film. Thevictim fits into the stereotypical role of thedefenceless female. Image of shelby
FILM TITLE Our short film is named ‘Guess Who’, taken from a piece of the dialogue from the film. The title conforms to conventions because it gives a mysterious feel to the film and creates some tension in the audience before they have seen the film.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS THE COMBINATION OFYOUR MAIN PRODUCT AND ANCILLARY TEXTS? For the ancillary project we decided to do a film poster and a magazine article reviewing our film.
