Shootout continued

Location has been decided. Were going for an outside average park in the local town. To give it a normal everyday feel. Were going for a dual split screen shot of Joey and I, until realisation of Ash taking the seat we’ve been fighting over.

An average bench, in a busy local town where two strangers journeys intertwine when they both set eyes for the same bench. A mind battle between two to get a seat.

We thought music would be key as were are not having any speech in it. We had the idea of a church chiming in the background or a bird tweeting.

We have looked at other films to observe the techniques of how suspense is built: Alice in Wonderland, Scott Pilgrim, Zatochi and No country for old men.

Most films add tension and suspense by having cut shots and close ups ( of eyes, hands and small movements) So we know the basics to creation the tension we need. Also the idea of no time adds effect, or even being lost in time and that the only thing that matters is the moment the characters are in that particular time. We need to add backstory so that add the emotional side to the viewer so that they care about the outcome. The idea to end it on a comical note was an idea we all liked and agreed on so it takes the serious edge of the film. Its kind of like a spoof but you wont know it until the end.

    I’m glad to see you discussing audio effects, (no) music, (no) speech and so on. This is a really good start, Kayla. Next step is going into much more specific detail with your research – picking out particular sequences, then particular shots, then particular frames, and backing up your ideas with screenshots and notes. This is a good introduction.
