My production skills improved during this project with editing as last time I edited for my prelim task it was a lot more straightforward as it was simply using a shot reverse shot
00:26
The use of shadows are very important in thrillers as it sets the mood of the scene and can build up the tension that is needed – these were all evident in the films I researched

00:32
I used conventional cinematography and editing techniques seen in thrillers to create tension - quick cuts and and framing – especially at the end where only a fraction of the victim’s body is visible - this hopefully will create tension as it was successful in the films that I researched.
00:45
My film has been inspired like other thrillers before it such as jaws and phone booth you see the story from the killers Point Of View whilst keeping the identity of the person hidden within the shadows.
00:52
Other films such as Deadpool, Joker and American Psycho were inspirational for my production
01:01
The fact you never actually see his face is what adds to the eerie nature. I was inspired by filming the first bit of my movie with the antagonist and using a montage inspired by the movie seven.
01:08
I switched perspective towards the end from the antagonist to the dog and used a tracking shot to show what the dog was walking towards. This built up suspense as it wasn't clear what was happening straight away until the last clip almost as if you blinked you would have missed it. This is conventional in thrillers as they often create tension and draw out the suspense for as long as possible.
01:16
Throughout the whole thing I used red lighting to each of the rooms except the hallway to show its significant.  This also can stress out the audience by putting such an alarming colour in there eyes which can also be seen as a red flag and something is going to go wrong.
01:25
Interestingly my victim is female which is stereotypical within the thriller genre as the victims are most commonly women. The criminal is a man as is evident through use of mise en scene and costume – he is wearing dark clothes, and moves in a stereotypically ‘masculine’ way.
01:33
You do not see either of the protagonist or antagonists faces which I feel avoids stereotypes and will keep the audience engaged as it creates a sense of enigma which the audience will want to solve throughout the duration of the film.
