Feedback on our animatic

We showed our animatic to the class today. People said to us that the initial idea of the list and a hit man was a good one, but we were recommended to not include the cheese wire that we were going to include. People said that it didn't leave much to your imagination and it was a bit too easy to just use a cheese wire. Therefore we decided that we should take it out and not have it in the actual filming.

Teacher Feedback

The blog is looking good. You need to put in the feedback you received for your animatic.
Also do some research into titles and consider what kind of titles you want to use in your thriller. The same thing should be done for your sound.
Keep up the good work.

As part of some research on our product we looked at the following clips

We were looking about something to do with stalkers and we found a nice following shot through some bars that we liked at 0:56
We also liked the idea of the cheese wire instead of conventional knife

We watched this video as it has a few of the aspects we are using in our clip

thriller ideas

The list, he circles a name
Goes through day of woman in point of view of man
Eventually he gets in her house goes upstairs. Then goes into her room you see him in her mirror. Door slams and she screams.
You see his hand with blood on it he pulls out his list and crosses a name off

The first generic convention that is used in the clip from Face Off is a twist, this is when you expect the assassin to kill the man but when the child is shot you feel shocked that he got hit. The music is very eerie and it makes the clip seem like it is a memory. It then changes to softer and more peaceful music and it emphasises the dramatic sounds so that you can see the importance of them. This music changes according to the characters state of mind and what they are doing at that time. You see an extreme close up of the assassins finger on the trigger and when the bullet leaves the gun, this adds emphasis to the action of what is happening.
