Genre – Thriller Codes and Conventions• Lots of shadow• Low lighting• Quick cuts to speed up pace and increase tension• Flashbacks to show what’s happened previously• Tense soundtrack• Mysteries in need of being solved• Element of realism in locations, plot et cetera• Twists towards the end
Thriller IntroductionsFrom analysing various thriller introductions, Ifound out there appear often within them. Forinstance, there is always the set-up to the restof the film. Either within establishing acharacter flaw or setting up an Enigma Codethat the rest of the film will aim to answer
Mise-En-Scene and Camera Angles• Obstructing Camera Angles – hides things from view• Low lighting• Weapons• Familiar safe environment to establish false sense of security or dark, gritty, unclean areas to show it’s not a nice place
Editing and Soundtrack• Quick paced editing to create a frantic atmosphere or very slowly paced to build up tension in the scene• Tense soundtrack that works with what’s on screen to set the viewer up for the film
Glass Jaw AnalysisMise-en-scene• Desolate locations – dirty places• Bright lighting generally• Alcohol/drugs• Assassination carried out• Enigma code created at the end of the filmEditing/Soundtrack• Tense music• Quick editing during the fight, slower during the introduction
How Does Glass Jaw Conform To Codesand Conventions In Other Thriller Films• Tense music that rises and falls with the action on screen• Enigma code established• Quick editing In these ways Glass Jaw conforms to the Thriller norm and fits with possibly the most important part of Thrillers which is the creation of the Enigma Code.
Ways Glass Jaw Challenges Aspects of Thrillers• Usually bright lighting – middle of the day – This is to fit in with our plot since gypsy fights are not usually at night and also challenging the thriller genre in that darkness doesn’t necessarily mean a lack of information, being ‘in the dark’, and having this brightness in the shot reverses that stereotype
Is It Easy To Tell This Is Part of A Thriller Film?• Yes, I think it sticks pretty solidly to the codes and conventions of a normal Thriller film• There is a little deviation from that genre which in some cases is bad, but in the case of Glass Jaw I deem it to be good so that it’s not too messy and all over the place
