This was our first try at filming to test out a vary of different shots and camera angles. The story is a horror about a boy who is murdered by two vicious killers. We tried to use a variation of different shots to make it more interesting and professional and also add more emotion to the characters death. A shot we used that portrayed emotion well was the close up on the victims face. This and the over shoulder shot helps convey the idea of innocence as it makes the victim look child like.
We experimented with the Final cut pro software during this first filming test, and started to use different kinds of filter for effects. In this particular attempt we used a black and white tint filter, to make the day seem darker, and more frightening than it would have if it had simply been left. We also added a soundtrack into the background which plays throughout the whole clip. This adds even more of a gloomy effect to the video as it juxtaposes the dark filter on top of the video and makes it even more creepier. The soundtrack also creates a little suspense as it gets louder and more high paced when the victim is crawling away from the killer. This makes it more effective as the soundtrack makes it more horror themed. TB
