Annotating Stills from the Saw trailer.

  1. 1. Type of Shot. Establishing Shot. Shot No. 1. Timing. 0.07 Secs. This shot is an establishing shot to show the location. It looks like an ordinary day and then the horror begins. The only sound playing when this shot is shown is some quiet low strings in the background to set the mood.
  2. 2. Type of Shot. This text has been edited onto the trailer, not filmed. Shot No. 2. Timing. 0.08 Secs. This text has been edited onto the trailer to show that the normal location is about to change and the horror is going to begin. The text is in a grey colour to make it visible over the black background but still quite dull to fit the genre. This shot follows the previous one and therefore the sound is exactly the same.
  3. 3. Type of Shot. Long Shot. Shot No. 3. Timing. 0.15 Secs. This shot shows people going about their everyday lives. Walking around the town. This again is trying to build the suspense because we wonder what is coming next. The sound is still quite strings but also we here the occasional ‘sweeping’ sound when the camera shots change.
  4. 4. Type of Shot. Medium Close up. Shot No. 4. Timing. 0.16 Secs. This shot is a medium close up so that we can see the concern and fear in these people’s faces. This shows us as an audience that something has changed and the people are stopping to look at something. The strings are still in the background and we now also hear faint noises which sound like a high pitched choir or voice.
  5. 5. Type of Shot. Long Shot. Shot No. 5. Timing. 0.19 Secs. This is a long shot of a victim shut in a glass cube in the middle of the town centre. He is trapped and tied to a saw- mechanism. This is again creating suspense and tension. We hear banging and clashing as he tries to get himself untied and we also hear him shouting in distress.
  6. 6. Type of Shot. Medium close up. Shot No. 6. Timing. 0.20 Secs. This medium close up of the victim shows that he is looking out of the glass and trying to call for help. The crowd are helplessly gawping and look concerned. Shortly after this shot we hear him scream ‘Someone?!’ and the background noises get louder.
  7. 7. Type of Shot. Medium close up. Shot No. 7. Timing. 0.24 Secs. This shot shows the antagonist of all the ‘Saw’ movies.
  8. 8. Type of Shot. Two shots superimposed together on the screen. Shot No. 8. Timing. 0.33 Secs. This shot is dark and has a blue lighting effect. This is a night-time effect. These two shots have been superimposed together on the screen to show the location.
  9. 9. Type of Shot. Medium shot. Shot No. 9. Timing. 0.35 Secs. This is a medium shot of another victim. Following this is a montage of shots where people are getting tortured. The voice over is a man with a deep voice trying to make the audience feel like part of this horrific torturing. “You have watched others suffer, now it is your turn.” We can also see this victim breathing heavily and panicing.
  10. 10. Type of Shot. Long Shot. Shot No. 10. Timing. 0.43 Secs. This is a long shot of another victim being tortured. The colour theme on this shot is brown and grey, again dull colours to set the mood. The voice over is continuing and also we hear crashes and bangs in the background as well as faint screams.
  11. 11. Type of Shot. Long Shot. Shot No. 11. Timing. 0.54 Secs. This shot shows the extent of the destruction involved in the movie. It’s not a quiet murder, there are many things going on: Torture, murder, explosions. After this shot the background music begins to sound like action music. Fast paced and exciting.
  12. 12. Type of Shot. Extreme close up. Shot No. 12. Timing. 0.56 Secs. This extreme close up shows the characters’ fear. The lighting is very high key on her face but low key in the background.
  13. 13. Type of Shot. Text edited onto the shot. Shot No. 13. Timing. 0.57 Secs. This text has again been edited onto the trailer. A question like this will catch the eye of the audience and encourages them to go and see it.
  14. 14. Type of Shot. Medium shot. Shot No. 14. Timing. 1.08 Secs. This image of the jigsaw mask is iconic of ‘Saw’ films. This is why it has been left towards the end of the trailer to give away what movie it is. This is effective because the audience will be even more likely to go and see the film if they recognise the name and have seen the other films.
