A horror opening sequence
2013 By Nicholas Dixon
Beginning – close up of protagonist’s face looking paranoid and scared. Zoom out
and turn camera to POV perspective as the protagonist starts to run towards the
college fence (to people for safety). At this point the audience don’t know what
he’s running from… A man is hiding in the bushes, the antagonist; zoom in on the
antagonist’s knife to show the audience his malevolent intentions. The murderer
starts to chase the victim hungrily as the camera changes back and forth between
the protagonist and the antagonist in POV perspectives for a fast-paced chase
Middle –POV of protagonist, he just manages to get through the college fence
gates and things are looking up for his survival. Then we see victim running
away from the camera, as the camera swings around to see the murderer
running towards the camera. Back to POV of the victim as he runs through the
car park believing that he has escaped his doom.
End – victim hides behind some cars to make sure the murderer has gone. POV of
the antagonist coming up behind the victim with knife in shot. Victim turns head
to see the murderer as the camera switches to POV of the protagonist to continue
running for his life. As the victim runs towards the college doors, it’s life or death
as the murderer is right behind him! …He doesn’t make it!
Still in POV of victim, the murderer grabs and turns victim around as he thrusts
the knife in the victim’s throat.
Protagonist/victim – Nicholas Dixon
Antagonist/murderer - Daniel Connor Trischler
Narrator – Samuel Steven Neesam
Burn valley has been known for its mysterious disappearance’s. In fact people
stay clear of the dangerous grounds surrounding the Valley, if you wherever
unfortunate enough to pass through Burn valley you better watch your back!
My film ‘Title, Unknown’ is set with that thought in mind, a victim is chased
though Burn Valley by a crazed murderer and it just so happens that no one is
around to help or save him from a brutal death. No one even knows that he’s
Steve has always been a quiet person; he always kept to himself and always
ignored what other people said about trying to make friends. So to be honest, he
really didn’t know that many people and not that many people know him. One
night Steve decided to ignore everyone! He would walk through Burn Valley
alone, he was stubborn and thought that he knew best.
From the moment he set foot in the Valley something wasn’t right, he could feel
that someone else was with him; but that’s not possible he thought because no
one ever walks through Burn Valley so clearly he was safe, right? He soon
realizes that this was a bad idea and starts to run fast! To try and get out of the
Valley as quick as possible. But some plans just don’t work…
