We made some part of our scenes very choppy and fast to make the audience feel more anxious and nervous which is a thriller convention. This was also developed from Se7ven where everything is faced paced. The lighting is very dim to make it look more effective rather than having bright lighting which will then challenge the convention of a thriller. As you can see from the pictures of se7en it also have very little lighting. Very mysterious.
When our title sequence first opens you can only see heels walking down a step of stairs to connote how mysterious it is so it gets the audience thinking of who is this person. Just like in se7en when i was watching their opening title sequence i felt lost and confused i didn't know what was going on so this is how we wanted our film to be like in the beginning. in se7ven you can only see a book being flicked through anonymously.
We tried to make some off our scene creepy and disturbing just like the scene n se7en where the person is scraping off their skin with a metal thingy shown in the picture at the side. we tried to develop this in our opening by making Reece have a disturbing smile which will freak out the audience and make him seem like a creep. it also gives off that stalkerish ( i know that not a word but i couldn't think off anything else to describe it) atmosphere for the audience.
