First Draft

 

 

The above is the link to a Youtube clip of my film draft. The reason why it is a draft is because it still needs and requires final touches.

 

The first thing that I am going to improve further is the credits because I have managed to complete the actors/actresses however, I have missed out the producers and the directors of the movie which are essentials for including. In all movies that we see, their are always credits that display the role of each person who was or is involved in that specific movie. Due to the fact that I have not included this will affect the quality of my film opening and will make my work look unprofessional. I am going to re-visit this and make changes because i think it is essential to add the credits because they do not take long and will transform the grade of my movie as well as the overall quality of the film opening. A movie which utilises the credits effectively is Alien (1979), this movie opening demonstrates how credits should be displayed and makes the movie look professional, this also contributes to the fact that it makes the movie look more professional.

 

Consequently, my movie is missing a cover to show its name and some basic information about itself. This is important because the audience will want to remember what the movie is called hence I am going to make sure that I include this in my final piece as it also adds to the professionalism and realism of my film opening. Without a movie cover, my film will look plain and wont stand out from the audience hence it is highly important that I make something easy and re-memorable for the audience so they can remember the movie from its cover. A movie which is famous for having an extensively detailed front cover is ” The Fast And The Furious”. This is because the use of the cars on the front title were emphasised by being blurred. This helped the audience to remember that the movie is about fast and cool cars which unique to every racer.

 

Finally, In my movie draft, the sound was not in the correct order and does not flow very well hence I am going to maybe play around with the sound setting and increase the pitch in certain scenes to create a better horror environment to scare and intrigue the audience into the film opening so they enjoy it and are able to remember the film opening through the specific sounds that were involved in making the movie opening. These sounds are of course copy right free. A movie such as “Scream” and “Jaws” both used sound effectively. The sound of the movie fit perfectly that the sounds which were used for the movies actually suited the genres of the movies and contributed heavily to the success of it as well. My target is that I have to ensure the sound is spot on because it could save my movie from being a flop or a success. If the content is not as good, the perfect use of sound could help focus the attention off this and actually save my movie hence I am going to ensure the sound is used effectively for every scene.
