For my practical production I am working in a group with Rachel Allan and Rachel Talbot. Together we are going to produce a horror film trailer, a magazine cover and a poster. We chose horror as the genre as we all enjoy watching horror films and the questionnaire we gave out showed that horror film was the favourite genre so we thought it would be a good experience putting our ideas together to produce a horror film that will be able to compete with other films such as, The Grudge, The Ring and Orphan.
Together we have brainstormed a range of different ideas for our storyline. Here are scans of our notes.
We are going to use actors that we know will be reliable as we don't want to be let down and set our work back. We have decided that we will go out looking for a range of locations to shoot our film as we want a lot of different locations. To make our trailer look like a real product i will look at different trailers and take note of the common conventions. I will also look at camera angles, editing, mise-en-scene and sound to give me a feel into what i should be working towards.
