All - Acts of Repulsion Discussed Changes

  • More extreme establishing shot
  • Low angle through gate *sound of footsteps* - hand reaching for door. Dialogue: Shhhhh keep it down
  • Adds narrative enigma
  • Use a match on Action
  • Use close-ups for when characters are talking (180 degree rule)
  • Vary shot angles
  • For Sound – use a boom-microphone, voice recorder or re-record dialogue in future
  • Don’t pan or zoom with the camera
  • Build on the haunted house image
  • Use fade ins and outs to show time has passed – use a bottle full before fade out and in. After effect bottle empty
  • Same with sleeping bags. Before effect sleeping bags are rolled up. After bags are rolled out
  • Shot of outside – night – owl cooing?
  • No violence on screen – isn’t as effective
  • 4 people (2 male, 2 female)
    A couple consisting of a scream queen and her boy friend who is very masculine
    A final girl
    Another male
