Nine Frame Structure Analysis

  1. 1. NINE FRAME STRUCTURE ANALYSIS By Claudia Miguel
  2. 2. NINE FRAME STRUCTURE ANALYSIS In the first frame, the shot is in fact of a family with a little girl circled in red. This connotes to the views that there girl has a significant role in the narrative of the story. This particular girl’s NVC stand out compared to the rest of her family members. Her NVC connote unhappiness as she has her arms crossed and is frowning unlike the rest of her family who are all happy and smiling, this particular feature makes her stand out from the rest of her family. In addition, this shot does in fact introduce both the setting and the narrative to the audience, giving them an insight of how things were before, equilibrium.
  3. 3. NINE FRAME STRUCTURE ANALYSIS In the second frame, the audience are shown the house that the new family is in fact moving into which can be identified thought the props of the moving van and boxes. This shot in fact connotes a sense of new starts and beginning to the views, this is because a new family is moving into a new house, which according to the female voice over on the trailer, which appears to be a new reporter, was previously the home of a family which there murder took place in. This again introduces the setting for the audience, however this time the trailer shows aspects of previous events.
  4. 4. NINE FRAME STRUCTURE ANALYSIS In this third frame, we come across the most significant shot in the trailer in my opinion. The frame is of a black box alone, which is located in an empty attic. This connotes to the audience that something is about to be found and in turn changed. At this specific the non-diegetic sound has stopped to show that something is about to happen and that this is the tuning point in both the trailer and at this point in the film and empathizes on the seriousness of this point. The low key lighting also connotes that something bad is in the attic and as the box is the only thing there, it must be the box. However, in contrast the natural lighting that makes it was into the frame also highlights the significance of the box.
  5. 5. NINE FRAME STRUCTURE ANALYSIS The forth frame I have chosen, is one that is a shocking quick cut and wide shot of what appears to be dangling legs, as people are in fact being hanged from a tree. This particular shot only shows half of the family’s body dangling from the waist/hip down. Along with the dramatic quick cut the sound effect of screams that is used is also dramatic. The sound effect causes fear among the audience causing them to be shocked and at unease. At this specific time the audience start to link back to the family they saw at the beginning of the trailer, with the family that used to live at the house that the new family have just moved into. The audience of the trailer may also start to question who it is that murder the family that is seen at the start of the trailer in such a ghastly way.
  6. 6. NINE FRAME STRUCTURE ANALYSIS The fifth frame of the trailer I have chosen, is a high angle shot/birds eye view of someone or something that is unknown and walking under water in a swimming pool. The use of a high angle shot/birds eye view usually portrays something/someone to look small and be inferior. However in this case is does in fact to the exact opposite, it in fact highlight the characters significant art of the narrative and its power. Due to the lack of lighting and the use of low key lighting, its seems that the object in the pool is a dark figure wearing black with pale white skin which is not commonly found in humans. This in one way connotes that the character is supernatural as it is walking underwater. The NVC of this character makes him look malicious and therefore feared by the audience.
  7. 7. NINE FRAME STRUCTURE ANALYSIS The next frame I have chosen, is a wide shot of the family’s garden outside of the house, where we find the evil character. The sound effect that is used at this point is again another scream, causing the view to jump and again create fear among the audience. At this point of the trailer the evil entity appears amongst the bushes and the disappears straight away. This does in fact reveal to the audience that the evil character isn’t human as not only is he able to walk under water, but also has the ability to appear and disappear quickly. In addition to the voiceover, we are told that the character can move through image, which is what happened here in this shot. The main character of the film (protagonist) has a similar picture to the frame that we see here and places it in front of the window, then takes it away, which is when the evil entity appears. http://saharacousinsa2media.weebly.com/research.html
  8. 8. NINE FRAME STRUCTURE ANALYSIS The next frame I have chosen for frame number 7 is the main antagonist of the film siting beside his laptop. The frame captures the movement, which is being zoomed in onto he character that is in the picture on the laptop. This again creates both fear and tension amongst the audience. This is because they realize how serious that situation that the antagonist is being faced with is. The NVC of the antagonist suggests again that something bad is happening or about to happen, this is due to his facial gestures and also the way that the main protagonist due to the smug face on is face.
  9. 9. NINE FRAME STRUCTURE ANALYSIS The next frame I have chosen is a quick shot and close up that presents the fact of the protagonist. This is in fact from the view of the main character, the antagonist. By the look of this shot, the audience can clearly establish that this is the character that can be seen in some of the frames previously mentioned. The audience can see that the character is evil as both its mouth and eyes are nonexistent, which again connotes that he is not human and therefore supernatural. This again creates fear amongst the audience as he does not look ‘normal’. There is further suspense created by the silence leading up to this particular shot, which builds up the scare amongst the audience as the evil character has in fact appear unexpectedly.
  10. 10. NINE FRAME STRUCTURE ANALYSIS This final shot of this horror trailer I have chosen to use is the titles of the film ‘Sinister’ which therefore allows the audience of recognize the film when it is released. The title represents the overall film. It is shown on a grey to white gradient and cracked wall effect background, with the title ‘Sinister’ in slim smudged font. The color scheme used correlates with the theme and genre of the film.
