Final Version

Tuesday, 23 March 2010

Feedback from groups

good variety of camera shots
appealed to modern audience, because of scenery and characters.
Not always dark, lightning kept changing.
soundtrack doesn't really fit to theme of thriller

Appealed to audience
Blood didn't look realistic looked liked ketchup
Liked soundtrack, the constant guitar.

What People Thought Of Our Opening Thriller Clip


- Good camera work, over the shoulder shots worked effectively
- We should make titles longer so people can read them
- It's a short duration
- The dark bits we need to lighten up
- Music desperately needs to be added to create the right thriller mood.

here is our rough cut for our thriller opening,

Thursday 11th March Update

Today we found some suitable music for our thriller film, we decided to use orchestra music to build dramatic tension, to draw the viewer in and create an emotional feel to the film, however we had some problems trying to fit in the music and so we decided to upload our clip without it, we then put this into garage band.
Verity finished off the credits which look effective. During the car scene, we made the lighting go from light, to dark, to light, and during the dark bit we put in some white typewriter credits, which looked affective.

We then asked Barney for some more sound effects as the ones we had on garage band weren't suitable, We are now looking through and picking the ones we need.

We are now uploading our clip to youtube, so we can get the embed and upload it to

Rough Cut

filming and music

today we were looking at music for out opening scene, we found it hard as there is not much music on garage band that fits to out opening scene, eventually we found some that we may use but we will carry in looking next lesson.
i was editing the opening scene and adding credits to it, i found it hard as it was difficult to add it smoothly into the clips, also there was no font that we liked as we don't have the text we had before for our opening scene.
