Low angle shot - from using a low angle shot throughout my trailer, this will be able
to indicate to the audience just how dominant, strong and powerful the
antagonist is. Low angle shots will be a constant reminded of this and will also
add to the sympathy and fear they feel for the victims. I could also use this on
my film poster, which is common and is shown in existing media products, such
as the film poster for Friday the 13th.
High angle shot - from the use of a high angle shot, it allows the audience to see how
vulnerable the victim is, creating empathy as well as fear. Throughout my trailer,
if I use high angle shots, it will continue to remind the audience just how
dominant the killer is, portraying them in a undefeatable manner, therefore
keeping the audience on their toes wanting to come and watch the film.
Close ups - from the use of a close up the audience is exposed to more detail. Within
a slasher this is conventional, although the identity of the killer is usually
hidden behind a mask, we are able to see a short few second glimpse of the
mask on the odd occasion, which will lead to the audience having flash backs of
the mask creating a long lasting horrific imagery effect. Therefore, I believe this
will be beneficial to add within my trailer. Additionally, close ups are often used
on front covers on magazines, this could be beneficial for me to look into.
However, I would want the image on the front cover of the magazine have some
This high angle shot is taken from the 2005
interpretation of the ‘House of Wax’. This shot
enables to victim to look weak, vulnerable and
helpless. Leading for the audience to think that
they are going to die in a matter of time. By using
this in my own trailer, I will be able to build up
anticipation as to whether the character will
survive or not.
In my own trailer I intend to use a high angle shot
within the second montage whereby everything
goes wrong and the audience are presented with
action that is going to take place in the film. It will
be used to show one of the protagonists screaming
for help and then a eyeline shot will be used to see
what the protagonists last sights were.
The use of a low angle shot is
used in order to make the
antagonist more scary, dominant
and masculine, making the
audience fear him even more. I
plan to use this shot type in my
own poster image, to create
similar effects. Not only this, I
would like to use it again in the
trailer, whereby the antagonist
would be walking across the
bridge, tapping his axe against it,
whilst the camera is dollying
backwards from a low angle shot.
This close up is taken from A Nightmare on Elm
Street of the villain, Freddy Krueger. The close
up is used to give the audience an insight to the
face of the killer - despite him being masked. It
allows for them to remember the face in the
back of their mind as a lasting effect.
I want to use this camera shot but in a different
effect. I would like to use it at the end of my
trailer for the sting, so that the audience will be
scared, once again, not being able to forget the
antagonist to our film, Deadwood Grove.
Pans are almost always used at the beginning of a trailer in order to
show a location, it sets the scene and can cause an uneasy
feeling for the audience as they are usually abandoned locations.
In ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ different cuts are used in order to
show the audience around a large abandoned area, this will
make the audience anxious, as they await for something to pop
out at them.
Establishing shots may also be used at the beginning of a trailer, just
showing one particular location, rather than the area of a
location like in a pan shot. This adds extra emphasis on this
location allowing the audience to gather thoughts and jump to
the conclusion that bad things will happen at this location.
Other standard shots that will are conventional within horror films
are; medium close ups, which allows the audience to see more
depth and detail of where the characters are, as well as being
close enough to show emotion still. Long shots will do the same,
however, emotion will not be as evident, the focus will be on the
character/costume or the location. Extreme long shots will
mainly be used in order to show a location and are most
common in establishing shots.
Cuts taken from the beginning of the ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’
(2010) trailer, showing an abandoned location. They are also
establishing shots.
For our trailer we embed the pan at the
beginning with the establishing shot in order for
our audience to establish that this is where the
film is going to be located. Not only that but also
where all the action is going to take place. As
you can see, it is still light, however the general
vibe is murky and eerie, effectively setting the
scene for the audience.
This is a long shot taken from the 2013 interpretation of
the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. From this shot we can
see partial parts of the location - it looks like he is on a
rooftop. The costume - jeans and a t-shirt. The idea he is
wearing a mask, as well as the fact he is starting up a
chainsaw. I want to recreate a similar shot, but instead
from the front, as he's walking across a bridge to capture
on of his victims, this way the audience will be exposed
to his mask, making him seem more frightening.
Point of view shot of Paris Hilton in the ‘House of Wax’
(2005). This is portrayed from the killers view giving us
an insight as to seeing things from his perspective.
Additionally, as it is a close up we can see the fear on her
face. I wish to implement this into my own work as if
the audience see my character's emotions up close and
personal it will make them empathise with them more.
More importantly, they will be exposed to the
protagonists fear, making them fear the antagonist even
more.
Medium close up taken from scream. This enables us
to see some of the costume, as well as the fact that she
is on the phone. However., the audience still get a clear
insight to the characters emotions and facial
expression.Adding from my point from the image of
Paige from the House of Wax, Casey's emotions are
evident, allowing the audience to understand exactly
what is going on, which is why I am going to use as
many medium close ups as possible.
This is an extreme long shot from ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’. This shot
allows the audience to have an understanding of a location. In this case it
looks to be in some sort of factor. This combined with the dark lighting
creates a scary silhouette of Freddy, intending to scare the audience. I
think this shot combined with lighting would be very effective in my trailer
as part of a montage.
Overall, I have come to the conclusion that using a
variety of different shot angles and shot types would
keep my audience entertained, focused and drawn to
my trailer leaving them very little time to get bored.
Additionally, I believe that these shot types are very
popular in films in general, but also in horror films as
they work together in order to build up extra tension,
suspense and fear for the audience.
