Filming Process.

Filming Process.

Sunday, 19th February 2012

Today we plan to film a selection of the outside shots. We plan to meet at 5pm, we think this would a ideal time to film the dark shots as this is round about the time when the sun begins to set. We have considered the weather conditions which have proved to not to be an issue.

Front Cover Style Model.

For my horror magazine front cover although I chose Empire as my style model as its a very popular and successful company which specialises in the film industry. I generally chose this magazine simple because I thought it was fitting to what I wanted my final magazine cover to look like. I specifically chose this edition simply because of it's colour scheme: red, white and black. These colours commonly have connotations of death, blood and danger which is very fitting of as horror convention. As well as that the background contrasts well with the white mask making the image more central and also mysterious another feature of a horror film.

Filming Process: Horror Trailer.

Wednesday, 15th February 2012

  • As a group today we plan to film the bedroom scene focusing mainly on the beginning of our horror trailer. 
  • We aim to film using a variety of different shots, to ensure that if some shots don't look correct or suitable we will then have a wide range to choose from. 
  • We will also make sure the lighting is suitable this is important as it it will maintain the continuity with our horror trailer.

Storyboard Annimatic.

This is our storyboard which we then put into a video format, we did this to show what our horror trailer will look like prior to the videoing and also gaver us an indication into what would fit in and what wouldn't be sutiable and didnt look right and we could make adjustments and improvements to it.

Title: Subliminal.

When deciding which font to use on my horror front cover and poster, I created four samples and showed them to my target audience which then given me an indication into which they found the most eye catching and suitable to the horror genre.

Possible Horror Film Titles.

When trying to think of ideas for our film names, we wanted a title which had a variety of different meaning which could be interpreted in a number of ways, adding a bit of mystery to our film trailer. We finally came up with three which we thought would be suitable as a title.
Abstract - Existing in thought or as an idea but not having concrete evidence of this existence.
Subconscious - Concerning the part of the mind of which one is not fully aware but which influences one's actions and feelings

Subliminal - Below the threshold of sensation or consciousness; perceived by or affecting someone's mind without their being aware of it.
