Recce of Locations
We as a team visited the filming site and checked to see if the site was
safe and acceptable to film on. We took photos of the site and decided
that the burn valley, the car park and the front of the college were good
and safe places to shoot our film.
Scene 1 – The Path
The Burn Valley, this path is where the
whole film starts. As the victim walks
down the path, the murderer watches
The bushes where the murderer is first seen,
extreme close up of his knife as he moves the
knife through his fingers.
This is the angle of which we see the murderer
and the victim in the same shot for the first time.
This is an important shot as it builds tension.
Scene 2 – The Bridge
For the second scene the victim walks towards a bridge.
With the murderer closing in on the unaware victim the
camera with a medium shot
Crossing the Bridge. As the victim starts to cross the bridge
he hears something behind him. The camera switches to POV
perspective for the first time as the victim turns around to
see if he’s alone.
Scene 3 – The Chase
This is where things escalate quickly. The murderer chases
after the victim whilst trying to kill him. The camera switches
between POV perspective of both the victim and the murderer,
In a fast passed chase scene.
The chase just before the kill scene. The camera switching between
POV perspectives; the camera switches to a tri-pod while the camera
swings round for a 180° pan-shot.
Scene 4 – The Kill Room
The Kill scene. The victim, running for his life past the
Parked cars, accidentally trips on the curb as the
murderer pulls out his knife and stabs the victim.
Before the murderer walks away into the distance.
