Question 1 evaluation coursework

  1. 1. QUESTION 1 IN WHAT WAYS DOES YOUR MEDIA PRODUCT USE, DEVELOP OR CHALLENGE FORMS AND CONVENTIONS OF EXISTING FILM OPENING TITLE SEQUENCES? By Belinda Olenloa
  2. 2. HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF TWO NINE FRAMES. ONE IS FROM MY GROUPS HORROR FILM OPENING AND THE OTHER IS FROM THE MOVIE ‘THE CABIN IN THE WOODS’: CABIN IN THE WOODS These nine frame structures have been created to show how the opening of a film has been constructed. They show 9 different camera shots and how they are put together in order to appeal to the audience to and engage them within the films narrative so that the viewer continues watching the film after the opening. I will now analyse these two selection of frames. LEARNING TO DIE
  3. 3. NINE FRAME ANALYSIS OF OUR OPENING SEQUENCE The first frame is a pan of the college and shows our production name which we did to get brand recognition so the first thing our audience relates with the movie is our company. We also wanted establish the setting and time so the audience get a better understanding of the movie which is common for horror movies.. The second shot is of our main character Dwayne. There is no dialogue as we just wanted to show that he is in detention and hint that he has a rebellious attitude, by using the camera angle that is a close up of his feet shows that he may also think highly of himself. This is done to establish narrative which is also common. Typical in horror movies The third frame is to establish the characters situation. It shows a divide between the teacher and a student which represents age and also ethnicity. The behind the shoulder shot typically is used to show mystery which heightens the sensation of fear and anticipation that something bad is going to happen for the audience. We used a extreme long shot that shows Dwayne walking and the lights flickering. We used this a to show the isolation that he is in which again suggests that something bad is about to happen to the audience. This is used in horror films as nothing is happening for a long time which then allows something big and shocking to take place which scares the audience. Whereas these next two shots are at a side angle and a mid shot of Dwayne. Here we have shown good continuity with Dwayne which is typical as the audience as opening tend to build up slow to create anticipation and fear for the audience. Notably he changes into his jumper then coat, we wanted to establish his costume as baggy clothes which connote rebellion and lower class which establishes a typical representation of out character to be cocky and rude. However in horror films victims are typically seen as vulnerable and weak. This shot is a close up of Dwayne. It’s the first time that we see the true fear on his face after he has just ran into the classroom. Both him and the audience don’t know what is outside which is typical as it creates suspension allowing the audience to connect with Dwayne by putting themselves in his position. This shot is shown from outside the classroom. No one is around which establishes isolation and plays on the common fear that people have of being trapped and having no one around to save them. This type of realism is typical for horror movies because they increase the intensity from the film which engages the audience more into the narrative. This is our final shot of our opening. It shows Dwayne’s feet dragging across the floor but the audience doesn’t learn what happened to him or who is dragging him.  This creates the fear of the unknown which is typical in all types of horror films.
  4. 4. NINE FRAME ANALYSIS OF OUR OPENING SEQUENCE Similarly to our opening this film starts very dark only showing the colours red and black. This is because these colours connote danger, blood and horror which heightens the sensation of fear for the audience. The purpose and the storyline for the characters isn’t instantly established to the audience which foreshadows that the context of the film has a mystery element to it. It starts in media res which foreshadows that an issue can occur any time inviting the audience to guess what is going to happen after the opening scene. The title of the movie occurs at the end of the sequence unlike ours which occurs at the start of the opening. We did it to create excitement and suspension for the audience whereas in this movie the plot in unknown to the audience until the last shot of the opening scene. The location of the movie is a medical office. It is a normal set which shows a sense of realism in the storyline which is common for horror films as it makes the more scary because the audience can then easily put themselves in the characters shoes.
