WHOBy Holly Moran, Jade Potts, Liberty Carrington and Molly-Anne Noakes
The reason for our thriller opening sequence to be called ‘WHO?’ is because, the audience has a huge range of enigmas rising to the surface by the end of our sequence.
The NarrativeFrom beginning to end, there are two couples, the main girl (the protagonist), her boyfriend, the antagonist and his girlfriend. They are all friends but we discover that the antagonist who is also the boyfriends best friend, has a psycho love for the protagonist. After a night out the protagonist is left alone with the antagonist in the car which leaves us to discover her walking alone in the morning injured and covered in blood...
Our Opening SequenceIt begins with the main girl walking down the street in the morning covered in blood, weeping. This is when the enigmas start for the audience as we wonder where she has come from? Why she is in the state that she is? And what happened? Then the sequence goes back in time with flashbacks for the audience to get hints of reasons why she is covered in blood. Images and clips of the antagonist waiting to attack the protagonist from the night before.
Sub GenreOur opening sequence is a psychological thriller. What makes it a psychological thriller is because it plays upon the audiences mind and also there is emotional conflict between the two main characters, the antagonist and the protagonist.
