Initial ideas (A2)

  1. 1. Initial Ideas Isaac Randall
  2. 2. Trailer – Idea 1 For the trailer I could possibly use a voice over, giving an insight into the main theme/plot of the film. I would also use a variety of different shot types (LS,MS,CU) in order to create ambiguity, again ensuring that the plot is not entirely revealed. I will also use low lighting, a dark/mysterious soundtrack and shots of violence and use props in order to convey genre and mood. I will use a build up of shots and music getting faster and more intense, in a montage style, until finally revealing the title at the end. The first idea would be to create a ‘gangster’ style crime film, similar to films such as Legend and Gangster Squad. However, I understand that the budget needed is not available to create a film set in the past, so I would have to set my trailer in a modern era.
  3. 3. Trailer - Idea 2 The second idea is similar to the first in terms of how the film will be structured in a montage style, however I could use a more modern urban style theme by using underclass characters, similar to films such as Ill Manors and Kidulthood. Again I would be using a variety of shot types in order to convey genre and the intense feel I want to create. Again, I would use a dark and mysterious soundtrack also to convey the genre.
  4. 4. Trailer – Idea 3 A third idea could be a narrative trailer, conveying the story through a series of longer shots from the film. Possibly, using an actual segment from the film. I could again use the ‘Gangster’ style format however, using a longer narrative based trailer that focuses on conveying the plot of the film. I could also even combine this narrative with some shorter shots to create ambiguity and to further convey genre, creating a good contrast between violence and non- violence and through the short shots and longer length shots.
  5. 5. Advert I have not chosen to do an advert however, had I chosen this I would most likely have shot a food advert, similar to that of Lurpak or M&S. I would have used a variety of close ups and time lapses of food cooking, in particular a cake in an oven or chicken being grilled. I have not chosen to pursue the advert idea as I wanted to film something a little more challenging and that interests me, giving me freedom to film on various locations in different styles, as it will highlight my current skills and develop them further. Pros  Could create a good advert in a small amount of time  If choosing a food advert you could use a range of shot types and could follow a similar structure Cons  Most likely in one location  Not very challenging  Would need a micro lens (possibly)
  6. 6. Music video If I were to have chosen a music video I would have most likely used a mixture of a story based plot, combined with shots of the band playing. I however, chose not to do this text in particular as I do not wish to create a music video, and the trailer option of the coursework seemed a lot more appealing to myself for the reasons previously explained in the PowerPoint. Pros  A music video would allow me to have more creativity in terms of idea and shots  It would give me freedom in terms of music choice Cons  I would most likely need to film using a band – which would be hard to find  I would need to find a suitable location to film in and transport music equipment also tat would be used in the video, which would be awkward to do
