Location! Location! Location! - Planning

On October 17th 2011 I decided that me and the group I am in would go and visit some of the locations we would be using, to see if they looked like horror themed.

 Hills where there will be a chase scene.
An old church and graveyard.
An old creepy staircase.
Old abandoned railway lines.
An old bridge that will be good for a long shot.
Long Shot of the River Tyne where the body will be dumped.
A forest which will be good for chase scenes.

 An outside view of the abandoned warehouse.

 Location Where Body Is Dumped.

The house at which Shaun Lives.
Location where Jamie is killed.

Production and Distribution Companies Research!

Every film that is made has a production and distribution company some might hae two. I decided that we should have a one so I did some research on the different companies to see what kind of movies they have produced and released. When we decide on what company to use I don't want it two be one of the biggest studios in HollyWood however I don't want a one that it is low in the market.

What makes a good photo? - Research

 I decided that I would analyse different movie posters to see what makes them good and eye-catching for the audience.

For my A2 project i have to work in a group and create a Horror Trailer.

This project will further my skills at camera movement and how to get the best out of a shot by using certain camera angles. 

I have had a practice go at making a moving image project by doing a chase scene which is available on youtube:
