The Deeds – This title fits my short movie as it doesn’t
give away too much of the storyline and the deeds to
the house are the main reason the story happens. The
word deeds also links to bad deeds, as though bad
things will happen.
Don’t Go Upstairs – This title works because the story
emphasises the threat towards the characters not to go
up the stairs, and creates tension when they do.
My short film is similar
to The Woman in Black
due to the fact the main
character trying to sell a
house that is haunted
due to the owners in the
Paranormal activity links
to the concept of my
short film as strange
things are happening
around people in a house
that they have no idea
This film, House at the
End of the Street, has a
similar story line due to a
member of the family in
a house who ended up
killing people for some
My short film would be a non-linear
narrative due to the whole story being told
by one of the brothers and due to the story
including a flashback.

The lighting on the scene of the moving car will be in the day light,
which will be easy to do as the sun will be my main light source.
All other scenes will be at night time so I will need a relatively low
lighting with some dim lighting so that the audience are able to see the
characters and props and see what the characters are doing. To create
the dim light, I will need a small light source such as the moonlight or a
spotlight lamp to imitate the moonlight.
