Evaluation task 1

  1. 1. Evaluation Task 1 In what way does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
  2. 2. Camera- Silhouette Here you can see from a clip from the thriller ‘Sherlock Holmes’ That our silhouette shot is very similar to a shot from it. The idea of the light coming from behind is something that is obviously in trend when making exciting thrillers. They are also used to create memorable , spine tingling shots, a lot of the time to establish location more than the actual characters as we can see from the Spielberg classic E.T.
  3. 3. Location and Shot Here is a shot from the Bourne Identity of a character walking up the stairs. Another very similar shot to the one in our thriller sequence. Our location didn’t have railings or a gap through the staircase so therefore the shot is not quite identical but the suspense that comes from both scenes is similar. Intentions and ideas of what to come are similar. Also the very bland color scheme in both shots creates the similar feel of location, a apartment block, not necessarily well kept. Both films being thriller shows that our concept works within the ‘Thriller’ genre.
  4. 4. Baseball Bat Another key element in our thriller opening is one element used in some of the most famous thrillers, such as The Shining and Inglorious Bastards. All of these are scenes that have been truly memorable. A Baseball bat obviously as well as signifying fun and play it also shots death and danger. And of course as well as suspense. IN the Shining funnily enough she is walking up stairs with the bat!
  5. 5. Independent British films with Gangs Films like Kidulthood, Adult hood and the Football factory are all independent British films which show severe violence with gangs and towards others. This is the concept of our Thriller and we always used British Urban films for our inspiration. These are very popular among the age group we are trying to attack and much of the ‘Mise en scene’ we are trying to create within our thriller (costume especially- hoodies, trackies etc.) are what are in these films.
