TitlesWe decided on WireProductions as we felt thatdespite the wireless agebecoming more and moreprominent, wires are still veryimportant for the time being. Wecouldn’t connect anything to acomputer without wires, sowe’ve decided to honour themby using a wire as our mainpicture. Its on a white-ishbackground so that it stands out.

Mise En SceneDuring this scene, we placed the benchin front of a fireplace as fireplaces canbe used to connote danger and harm.The debris in the corners suggests thatthe house used is abandoned, or nottaken very good care of.Both of the “gangsters” are picturedwearing suits or smart clothing. Thisgives the impression that they are welloff, and sophisticated criminals.
SoundDuring the first part of the clip we used a suspense buildingsoundtrack with a fast beat and rhythm. This is to give theimpression of danger, and that something is about tohappen. This quietens during the speech but still remains.As the main gangster (blue shirt) goes to hit the hostagewith the golf club, there is a high pitched soundtrack whichincreases in volume as he gets closer to hitting him. This isalso to create suspense and danger.
