Filming Update

This has been a difficult week for filming because there have been some severe weather conditions, therefore we have been unable to film anymore footage because our locations are outdoors and it is unsafe to carry equipment through the snow.

Plan for Scene 2: Photograph

Narrative: the scene fades in from the blank screen after the end of scene 1. Jamie is looking through some old photo albums, when she comes across an old photograph that shows her grandmother as child, with the killer discreetly visible in the background standing in the window. Upon realizing this, she calls her father into the room, who looks at the photo, then crumples it up and storms out of the room.
The reason there is no speech in this scene is because I think it will clutter the trailer, when my intention is to avoid it from being too cluttered and for the audience to focus on the main aspects of the story line.

  • ·         extreme close up of the photograph to show the killer
  • ·         low angled shot of her looking at the photograph
  • ·         medium shot of the mother when asked a question
  • ·         high angled shot of Jamie
  • ·         over the shoulder shot of her

  • ·         daytime lighting
  • ·         possibly in either the kitchen or the living area

My locations for this project are largely based around a domestic environment considering the trailer looks at the changes in a particular persons life. Therefore, the final locations that I have planned are:


  • Bedroom - this room will give good outlook to the scenes that include the main protagonist dreaming considering the room is rather dark.
  • Bedroom 2 - this room is appropriate for the use of showing a casual and comfortable scene, for example looking through the photographs to locate the killers origin.
  • Tunnel Alleyway - this will be a good location to use because it is in a confined space and when filming at night, it can be useful as creating a fear factor for the trailer. I think that there will be many shots used here because it can be used in a variety of ways.
Despite it being a home environment, the intention is to isolate the character from many of the comforting aspects of life, making her look alone and creating anticipation for the killer.
