Assignment #11 draft 6 part 2

  1. 1. Inspirational Films – The Ring• The film that inspired me most is ‘The Ring’• I want to use a similar long shot in our opening sequence.• It’s an effective way of keeping the audience’s attention to the puddle of water whilst showing the character come up the stairs.• I also want to use a fast zoom in our opening sequence.
  2. 2. Use of costume and make-up in ‘The Ring’• Quite frightening to look at and an effective way of scaring the audience.• The lighting throughout the whole movie is kept more or less the same.• This creates a very eerie and creepy atmosphere in the movie, common in most horrors and thrillers.• I want to use dark lighting in our opening sequences .
  3. 3. Inspirational Films - The Haunting In Connecticut.• Another film that inspired me was ‘The Haunting in Connecticut ’• Its paranormal theme has inspired me to make my opening sequence about a haunting.• Slamming doors…• It especially inspired me to set my opening sequence in a building that’s haunted. E.g. a haunted house.• I would like to use old newspaperarticles such as this to briefly show thehistory of the area. 
  4. 4. Inspirational Films – Rosemary’s Baby• A scene from ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ also inspired me.Close up of hand reaching into cribDraws the audiences attentionto what shes doing.. Allows imagination to run Close up of Rosemary’s face It never shows what emphasises her shock, and wild making the audience she sees, only her reaction. uneasy. horror at what she sees.
  5. 5. E Inspirational Films - GothikaThe particular scene I found inspirational about this film, wherethe scenes where the ghost interacts with the characters by leavingscratched out messages on their arms saying ‘Not Alone’. I thought that a similar idea would be a good addition to our idea, as the ghost tries to communicate with our character whilst she sleeps. I also took inspiration from the non-diegetic sounds, because they were creepy and added to what was already a tense film.
  6. 6. EInspirational Films – Paranormal Activity Throughout the whole of Paranormal Activity, the characters use their own camera to document what is happening to them. I liked the idea of this as it makes the viewing experience more personal for the viewer as they literally see what the characters see. I want to use this in our opening sequence as the camera shots made it more exciting for the viewer, and we want to add tense excitement too.
  7. 7. E Inspirational Films – The Grudge• The inspiration that I took from this film was part of the plot – that the ghost was trying to get revenge over her death.• I also felt that the setting added to the creepiness of the film, and so I hope we can re-create this when we make our opening sequence.
  8. 8. E Inspirational Films – Cabin FeverThe camera shot for this scene The props of thisis a mini close up shot of his movie is veryface to demonstrate disturbing for thefear, disgust and anxiety to the audience as it hasaudience. disgusting images of blood everywhere.
