today we are finishing off our thriller opening in final cut completely. by the end of this lesson we will have completed our task of creating a thriller opening sequence with credits, logo, filming and editing.
We have added a soundtrack we made earlier to the final cut along with our still images and credits and production logo.
There have been some timing issues and have struggled to get it all completed in time for the deadline because of complications with filming.

Thursday 18th March 2010

We have chosen exposure as our title. We liked the idea of photography metaphors as it is based on what we are producing. It also links into the theme of the opening sequence of the darkness, uncertainty and mystery.

Possible titles

We have been thinking of possible names for our opening sequence. We thought that we should link the name to what we have, something to do with photography. So far, we have thought of; Capture, Exposure, developed, undeveloped.


The feedback we got back from the class was very positive and we had no negative comments about our ideas and work. This was good for us because this shows that we are creating a good thriller convention. Also we knew what the class was thinking about our work because it hasn't been edited or put together yet. This shows that they understand our idea yet we haven't gone into detail.

Filming the end of the opening sequence.

For our opening sequence we have mainly choosen to use still images to create the effect of someone being watched. This carrys on through out our opening until the end of the sequence, This is when we chose to use a small clip of film which would lead to the main film itself. After looking at the filming we have decided to only take a small part as we filmed at night ans decided that due to lack of light only the chosen clip will be suitable...This an important part of our sequence because it need to lead in to main film.

If we were to film again we would need to use some kind of lighting and plan where we are going to film better as this time we rushed into finding the correct location and the style of our film.
