evaluation questions - In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
Our film opening "visitors" was inspired from several psychological thriller films, prior to filming our opening we looked at a few examples to gain knowledge as to how suspense can be created During our planning. myself and James Looked at the opening for seven, we attempted to copy the style of credits create suspense and enigma as to what is going to happen next. The style of the text from seven was used in our opening 'visitors' to engage the audiunce and to try and create a feeling of mystery and enigma Our film opening visitors took inspiration from the Donnie Darko bathroom scene- in which donnie is talking to a large rabbit but seems confused at what he see's similarly thus co insides with our end scene of amber using Non verbal communication to convey a look of confusion expressed using facial expression. Donnie Darko The penultimate inspirtation for visitors was taken from the pyscological thriller 'stragers' in which banging noises can be heard from within the house in which the film is set, similarly we used this idea and combined it with non digetic sound to create an enigma. The masked Charecter from the stragers was used to help the audince question the enigma of the film. Similarly we copied the style of the masked charecter from the 'The strangers' as it helped convey mystery as to why he is following the female charecter in 'visitors' and makes the audiunce question if he is physically real, or if he only can be seen be the female charecter as a dillusion. The scene in strangers in which loud non digetic sound can be heard before the appearce of the masked charecter. The scene in visitors after the loud banging can be heard, the female charecter walks toward the source of the noise, followed by the introduction of the masked charecter.
