Genre
• The genre of our film ‘locked up’ is a thriller. With it being a thriller it could
result in events that shock the audience such as gun shootings and
transportations of people.
• When researching about thriller films, we found ideas based on prisoners,
board games, illusions and bad mistakes. We also found ideas on death and
murder however decided to leave this type of action out in case the film
seemed more of a horror than a thriller.
• A subliminal message presented through the film is the fact of listening to
others and to trust others that care for you. It has not got a true message that
needs to be put across as it’s a thriller not a documentary or an awareness film
but with it relating to the enigma code it will make the audience ask questions
through out.
The Opening Sequence
• The opening sequence is all revolved around the characters within the main shack,
numbered 13. The number 13 relates with the rest of the film due to the number
being known as unlucky, which is what the film is mainly based around; bad luck. It
will start off of a panning shot of the aligned shacks within the shape of a circle with
candle lights in the shape of a star within. This is a representation of the evil/devil
which gives the audience an idea of what type of film it is going to be. Although, the
characters will not know what they are seeing, doing or where they are, so as a result
of them playing the board game, they will not understand they’re cursed and will be
afraid of their fate after the first unusual event affects them. Within the opening
scene it introduces both the characters and the setting and seeing the characters will
instantly link to the rest of the film and will show a variety of types of consequences
that happen throughout. Themes presented are nature, human, crime and the
enigma code. As well as the themes the mood is full of suspense and anticipation as
there a small clues as to what consequences are going to occur. The whole opening
scene does signify the genre and shows how the lighting throughout is used to
represent the mood. Pathetic Fallacy will be used throughout.
Practicalities
• Budget: $10 million dollars – This is because the film is set at one place, the
shacks, throughout the film so filming will be done continuously at the same
place. Also it allows the film to be at a high quality and to allow each scene to be
accurate.
• The time during the film will be two weeks from the start of the film until the
end. However at the beginning the film starts of with a flashback, which allows
the audience to have an understanding of the film and what this film is about.
• Music: The opening song for this film will be the first 30 seconds of the song
‘Russian Roulette’ by Rihanna. This is because it has a good beat and intensity to
go with the opening scene of the truck driving past. In the film there will be non-
diegetic sounds which will be music. The music will be piano and violin chords
when a dramatic scene is approaching to enhance the intensity of the particular
scene. The end song will be ‘Blackstar’ by David Bowie. This is because it is a dark
and slow song so will go with theme of the film which is thriller.
Film Inspirations
Ouija is based on a
ouija board and how
they contact spirits
of her late friend.
Strange events start
to occur which
aren't expected.
Prisoners gave us the
idea of involving
prisoners within the
film as it would make
it more affective and
make the plot line
different.
Disturbia gave us the
idea of house arrest
instead the prisoners
would have less freedom
and would be watched
24/7 whenever in their
shacks.
Taken is a film that
gave us the idea of
having characters
that try to save
others from having
bad actions forced
upon them.

Blair Woods - Blake Lively
Ash Gun - Christian Bale Bella Scar - Courtney Cox
Stanley Cut - Morgan Freeman
Blair Woods is going to be the main female involved
within shack 13. She is going to be the most innocent
one of the shack but still goes ahead and plays the
game because she does not know where she is and
she does not know what she has to lose. Although
she is worried about what will happen to her after
hearing Stanley’s stories she feels like she is dying in
the shack so she doesn't have much choice whether
to play it or not because there is no persuasion
holding her back
Stanley Cut will be the wise prisoner within
shack 13, although he isn’t scared of anything
coming his way he warns the other three
characters that consequences will be brought
upon the others if they play the game because
he knows as he has been in that shack for over
50 years. When he tries explaining about the
bad actions that have happened to him he
suddenly cant talk so Ash and Courtney are
eager to find out what is so bad about playing
this board game.
Ash Gun is the most dominating, brave male out of
the whole film. He is a newly added prisoner and
doesn’t believe anything that Stanley says. He thinks
he will seem like an admirable man in front of the
women if he plays the game. Once he plays the game
he starts to have hallucinations about there being
other shacks which is what Stanley has told him
about. So as the film goes on he tries to reassure
Blair and Bella that they will try and be freed from
the shack from the other people surrounding them,
however he still continues to be a dare devil and play
the game which forces bad actions upon the others.
Bella is a less frightened character than Blair
and tries to impress Ash by saying shell play
the game because she joined that shack will
Ash, so she wants to seem brave compared
to Blair and Stanley. She is easily persuaded
and will do anything she is told. She informs
her shack mates that she doesn’t have any
family so the people she shares the shack
with are the closest people to her and said
that her ‘family’ should support her with
playing the game.
Liana Sterling – Scarlett Johansson
Raven Knight - Mila Kunis Fred Tremaine – Dave Franco
Brad East – Laurence Fishburne
Liana Sterling knows that her sister Blair has been
placed in the cursed shack and being the determined
character she is, she tries to break out of her shack
to save her sister and the others. She is mysterious
and is clever about the way she carries out her ideas.
Liana is outgoing but also sly in the way that she can
manipulate others into helping her for her own
benefit. They all know the consequences of trying to
help people in another shack, however with Liana
being able to change peoples minds with a special
trick, this allows her to gain some help.
Although Brad East has been placed in
the lucky shack he still tries to harm
Liana, Raven and Fred without them
knowing whilst they are all sleeping
which only happens one day a year.
Raven knows that he is a mass murderer
so warns the others that they cant fall
asleep at the same time otherwise he will
try to harm them.
Raven Knight is the most heroic character
within this film. She has a sympathetic and
fearless character which is portrayed nearer to
the end of the fim. She insists that Brad is evil
and she has seen it in her dreams but Liana
and Fred think that she my be tricking them as
Brad is devious. Raven Knight as her name
symbolises tries to break out those in the
cursed shack because her and her ex boyfriend
were put into prison for the same crime and
she thinks that he is in that shack.
Fred Tremaine is a gullible character
and is persuaded to do what ever is
asked upon him. With him being in the
lucky shack and having nothing to do
except stare at 4 wooden walls, he tries
to follow brads instructions and tries to
harm both the girls he is sharing the
shack with, he only does this as Brad
hypnotises him in his sleep. He is a
goofy being and tries to make the best
mood out of any situation.
Setting
• Hoia Baciu Forest, Romania.
• Weather does not change, it stays foggy and chilled throughout.
(Pathetic Fallacy)
• In two main shacks, both looking the same within the circle.
• There is no one to be seen on the outskirts. Only special forces know
about this location.
• Set in 2013.

Target Audience
• Our target audience, is based towards middle aged professionals who are intelligent and
have a lot of money which is what their lives are revolved around. With a thriller film for
middle aged professionals, we need to ensure that it is gripping the whole way through
to get a clear judgement from it and to ensure that little sudden events occur
throughout to keep their attention. This film would be compared to many others that
the target audience have seen, however the language used within this could vary and
the type of visual content we produce could also be blood-tingling.
• Our target audience would enjoy seeing this film as it is a wide variety of extremely
popular thriller films which seemed to have been enjoyed by mainly, this type of target
audience. There is no other film like this that has been recognised as mainstream and as
a result of this middle aged professionals want to watch a film that they have not seen
before and will really enjoy; if they like this type of genre .
• Most of the targeted audience will be working full time all year round but might have a
few weeks off in the summer holidays so with this in mind the film will have to shown
on late nights and holidays to give the targeted audience time to watch it.
Distinct
• Setting- Set in 4 small shacks in Ireland, isolated, inside the shack is dark and dull with no lights only one candle in the
corner of the room, outside the shack is surrounded by trees and there is no one else in sight, time period is present day
and the time of day is night, the weather is foggy and raining with a few thunder storms every now and again.
• Icons- The main item in this film will be the board game that curses shack 13.
• Narrative- main shack number 13 relates to bad luck, the characters will play a board game not knowing the effects that
will take place after they play the game. They will not realise that they are cursed and will be afraid of the events that’s
happen throughout the film. The four main characters are Blair Woods played by Blake Lively, Stanley Cut played by
Morgan Freeman, Ash Gun played by Christian Bale and Bella Scar played by Courtney Cox all the characters have
different personalities and each one has their own problems in the shack. Another 4 characters are Liana Sterling played
by Scarlett Johansson, Brad East played by Laurence Fishburne, Raven Knight played by Mila Kunis and Fred Tremaine
played by Dave Franco. There are 8 more characters that fill up the last two shacks but aren’t mentioned that much.
• Characters- Men and women, lower class, all ages, both races. Blair Woods is the most innocent character, Ash gun is
the most dominating character, Stanley Cut will be the wise prisoner, Bella Scar will be the brave character, Liana Sterling
is he determined character, Raven Knight is the most heroic character, Brad East is the untrustworthy character, Fred
Tremaine is the most gullible character.
• Textual analysis- Costumes will be orange jumpsuits for prisoners and police outfits for the policemen/women, lighting
will be mostly dark and dull, actors will be creepy as they are criminals, make up will be dark around the eyes so it looks
like they haven’t slept in ages, props that will be used are guns, knives and glass. Camera angles will go from long shots
to close ups to make scenes more tense.
• Sound- The music will be the classic music from horror/thriller films and the dialogue will mostly be shouting and whispers
when things get creepy. There will be creaky doors and floor board.
Institution
• Hammer is a British production company who specialise in making thriller films they sometimes
partner up with Warner bros. They made films such as Frankenstein, Dracula an The woman in
black. They have also made some low budget films which are know as ‘mini-hitchcocks’. They
produce these types of films because they find them interesting and can give them unexpected
twists in the story line.
Plot Summary
• As for the film locked up, our idea of how our film will go is quite a roller coaster
of events. There are eight main characters within the shacks however, there is 4
shacks as a result but only 2 of the shacks are focused on. The first scene will
start off as a flashback to one year before of a black camouflage truck travelling
through a forest until it reaches the circle of shacks.
• Once it reaches 10 minutes into the film it will be a wobbly shot of the 4 people
that remain in shack number 13 . It will then instantly switch too the lucky shack
number 7 and the mood will change too joyful and determination.
• You will see shack 13 play the game being warned by Stanley that playing the
game will curse the shack. Playing this game will make them land on bad actions
such as pain caused, gun shootings, murder attempts and movement of the
shack.
• By the end of the film you will see the pain inflicted upon the characters and
how playing the game did serve them consequences. The end result will be that
the siblings Liana and Blair may be reunited.

Locked Up: A Thriller of Fate

  • 1. By Sophie Beth Ale Blake Lively, Morgan Freeman, Scarlett Johansson, MilaKunis, LaurenceFishburne, ChristianBale, CourtneyCox, Dave Franco.
  • 2. Genre • The genre of our film ‘locked up’ is a thriller. With it being a thriller it could result in events that shock the audience such as gun shootings and transportations of people. • When researching about thriller films, we found ideas based on prisoners, board games, illusions and bad mistakes. We also found ideas on death and murder however decided to leave this type of action out in case the film seemed more of a horror than a thriller. • A subliminal message presented through the film is the fact of listening to others and to trust others that care for you. It has not got a true message that needs to be put across as it’s a thriller not a documentary or an awareness film but with it relating to the enigma code it will make the audience ask questions through out.
  • 3. The Opening Sequence • The opening sequence is all revolved around the characters within the main shack, numbered 13. The number 13 relates with the rest of the film due to the number being known as unlucky, which is what the film is mainly based around; bad luck. It will start off of a panning shot of the aligned shacks within the shape of a circle with candle lights in the shape of a star within. This is a representation of the evil/devil which gives the audience an idea of what type of film it is going to be. Although, the characters will not know what they are seeing, doing or where they are, so as a result of them playing the board game, they will not understand they’re cursed and will be afraid of their fate after the first unusual event affects them. Within the opening scene it introduces both the characters and the setting and seeing the characters will instantly link to the rest of the film and will show a variety of types of consequences that happen throughout. Themes presented are nature, human, crime and the enigma code. As well as the themes the mood is full of suspense and anticipation as there a small clues as to what consequences are going to occur. The whole opening scene does signify the genre and shows how the lighting throughout is used to represent the mood. Pathetic Fallacy will be used throughout.
  • 4. Practicalities • Budget: $10 million dollars – This is because the film is set at one place, the shacks, throughout the film so filming will be done continuously at the same place. Also it allows the film to be at a high quality and to allow each scene to be accurate. • The time during the film will be two weeks from the start of the film until the end. However at the beginning the film starts of with a flashback, which allows the audience to have an understanding of the film and what this film is about. • Music: The opening song for this film will be the first 30 seconds of the song ‘Russian Roulette’ by Rihanna. This is because it has a good beat and intensity to go with the opening scene of the truck driving past. In the film there will be non- diegetic sounds which will be music. The music will be piano and violin chords when a dramatic scene is approaching to enhance the intensity of the particular scene. The end song will be ‘Blackstar’ by David Bowie. This is because it is a dark and slow song so will go with theme of the film which is thriller.
  • 5. Film Inspirations Ouija is based on a ouija board and how they contact spirits of her late friend. Strange events start to occur which aren't expected. Prisoners gave us the idea of involving prisoners within the film as it would make it more affective and make the plot line different. Disturbia gave us the idea of house arrest instead the prisoners would have less freedom and would be watched 24/7 whenever in their shacks. Taken is a film that gave us the idea of having characters that try to save others from having bad actions forced upon them.

  • 8. Blair Woods - Blake Lively Ash Gun - Christian Bale Bella Scar - Courtney Cox Stanley Cut - Morgan Freeman Blair Woods is going to be the main female involved within shack 13. She is going to be the most innocent one of the shack but still goes ahead and plays the game because she does not know where she is and she does not know what she has to lose. Although she is worried about what will happen to her after hearing Stanley’s stories she feels like she is dying in the shack so she doesn't have much choice whether to play it or not because there is no persuasion holding her back Stanley Cut will be the wise prisoner within shack 13, although he isn’t scared of anything coming his way he warns the other three characters that consequences will be brought upon the others if they play the game because he knows as he has been in that shack for over 50 years. When he tries explaining about the bad actions that have happened to him he suddenly cant talk so Ash and Courtney are eager to find out what is so bad about playing this board game. Ash Gun is the most dominating, brave male out of the whole film. He is a newly added prisoner and doesn’t believe anything that Stanley says. He thinks he will seem like an admirable man in front of the women if he plays the game. Once he plays the game he starts to have hallucinations about there being other shacks which is what Stanley has told him about. So as the film goes on he tries to reassure Blair and Bella that they will try and be freed from the shack from the other people surrounding them, however he still continues to be a dare devil and play the game which forces bad actions upon the others. Bella is a less frightened character than Blair and tries to impress Ash by saying shell play the game because she joined that shack will Ash, so she wants to seem brave compared to Blair and Stanley. She is easily persuaded and will do anything she is told. She informs her shack mates that she doesn’t have any family so the people she shares the shack with are the closest people to her and said that her ‘family’ should support her with playing the game.
  • 9. Liana Sterling – Scarlett Johansson Raven Knight - Mila Kunis Fred Tremaine – Dave Franco Brad East – Laurence Fishburne Liana Sterling knows that her sister Blair has been placed in the cursed shack and being the determined character she is, she tries to break out of her shack to save her sister and the others. She is mysterious and is clever about the way she carries out her ideas. Liana is outgoing but also sly in the way that she can manipulate others into helping her for her own benefit. They all know the consequences of trying to help people in another shack, however with Liana being able to change peoples minds with a special trick, this allows her to gain some help. Although Brad East has been placed in the lucky shack he still tries to harm Liana, Raven and Fred without them knowing whilst they are all sleeping which only happens one day a year. Raven knows that he is a mass murderer so warns the others that they cant fall asleep at the same time otherwise he will try to harm them. Raven Knight is the most heroic character within this film. She has a sympathetic and fearless character which is portrayed nearer to the end of the fim. She insists that Brad is evil and she has seen it in her dreams but Liana and Fred think that she my be tricking them as Brad is devious. Raven Knight as her name symbolises tries to break out those in the cursed shack because her and her ex boyfriend were put into prison for the same crime and she thinks that he is in that shack. Fred Tremaine is a gullible character and is persuaded to do what ever is asked upon him. With him being in the lucky shack and having nothing to do except stare at 4 wooden walls, he tries to follow brads instructions and tries to harm both the girls he is sharing the shack with, he only does this as Brad hypnotises him in his sleep. He is a goofy being and tries to make the best mood out of any situation.

  • 12. Target Audience • Our target audience, is based towards middle aged professionals who are intelligent and have a lot of money which is what their lives are revolved around. With a thriller film for middle aged professionals, we need to ensure that it is gripping the whole way through to get a clear judgement from it and to ensure that little sudden events occur throughout to keep their attention. This film would be compared to many others that the target audience have seen, however the language used within this could vary and the type of visual content we produce could also be blood-tingling. • Our target audience would enjoy seeing this film as it is a wide variety of extremely popular thriller films which seemed to have been enjoyed by mainly, this type of target audience. There is no other film like this that has been recognised as mainstream and as a result of this middle aged professionals want to watch a film that they have not seen before and will really enjoy; if they like this type of genre . • Most of the targeted audience will be working full time all year round but might have a few weeks off in the summer holidays so with this in mind the film will have to shown on late nights and holidays to give the targeted audience time to watch it.

  • 14. Institution • Hammer is a British production company who specialise in making thriller films they sometimes partner up with Warner bros. They made films such as Frankenstein, Dracula an The woman in black. They have also made some low budget films which are know as ‘mini-hitchcocks’. They produce these types of films because they find them interesting and can give them unexpected twists in the story line.
  • 15. Plot Summary • As for the film locked up, our idea of how our film will go is quite a roller coaster of events. There are eight main characters within the shacks however, there is 4 shacks as a result but only 2 of the shacks are focused on. The first scene will start off as a flashback to one year before of a black camouflage truck travelling through a forest until it reaches the circle of shacks. • Once it reaches 10 minutes into the film it will be a wobbly shot of the 4 people that remain in shack number 13 . It will then instantly switch too the lucky shack number 7 and the mood will change too joyful and determination. • You will see shack 13 play the game being warned by Stanley that playing the game will curse the shack. Playing this game will make them land on bad actions such as pain caused, gun shootings, murder attempts and movement of the shack. • By the end of the film you will see the pain inflicted upon the characters and how playing the game did serve them consequences. The end result will be that the siblings Liana and Blair may be reunited.
