Evaluation task #1

  1. 1. This is the scene from “Aviator”, Oscar-nominated movie by Martin Scorsese. Even though it’s not a thriller, this moment is very intense. In our thriller we also wanted to use a bird’s eye view shot, just like in “Aviator”. However, we weren’t shooting in studio and the roof space was not unlimited, that’s why we didn’t make this shot. But I think our substitution for that is quite good. So we follow conventions of our genre here.
  2. 2. This is a scene from “The Shawshank Redemption”. This is not a thriller again. However, the mood of our scene is much to do with this one. In order to create tension before the hanging, there is a close up on the feet. We used the same idea in our thriller since it gives us a sense of foreboding while not being over the top. This shot is used in a lot of thrillers. It is because it makes the audience to wait in anticipation for the moment they know is going to happen. So again we follow the conventions of tension and, thus, thriller.
  3. 3. This scene is from Kidulthood. The shot of just the feet after the hanging is incredibly emotive as it shows the vulnerability of the character and the lifelessness of the body. We used the same shot in our thriller since it indeed indicates helplessness of the situation and almost vicariously (we don’t see the face) shows that the person is not going to be alive. That probably deepens the emotion. Moreover, there is an object in both of the scenes which drops after hanging. That again makes the emotion deeper since we feel how person lost something. It shows death more expressively.
  4. 4. We have almost the same shot of the feet without showing a face leaving the audience to guess what that person is. However, we didn’t include any specific details, symbols, like Quentin Tarantino did, this shot was only to create tension and curiosity. But we follow the conventions of thriller here. This is a scene from “Kill Bill”, a brilliant thriller. We see how a woman goes through a corridor seeing only her feet, not the face. The shot is very symbolical: clothes is white as if she was the most kind and merciful person in the world, however, an umbrella is red which symbolizes blood, that she is actually very dangerous.
  5. 5. Our thriller is called “Gradual Decline”, however, it’s hard to tell the difference between titles of real movies and our sequence. This kind of titles give an idea of what the movie contains meaning what type of movie is that. And also this contrast between black background and white titles makes the name to stand out vividly, which indicates its importance.
  6. 6. Our thriller is called “Gradual Decline”, however, it’s hard to tell the difference between titles of real movies and our sequence. This kind of titles give an idea of what the movie contains meaning what type of movie is that. And also this contrast between black background and white titles makes the name to stand out vividly, which indicates its importance.
