Before we started planning and making our thriller opening sequence we did 2 experiments where we filmed 2 short sequences. First one was a Newspaper thriller where we had ti create a suspenseful short thriller by using different camera angles and edits. this exercise helped us to learn how to use the camera also editing programs such as :Final Cut Pro, Live Type to create the title sequence and Soundtrack Pro to create sounds.
The second exercise was a Preliminary thriller film ,this time we had to create a short dialogue and plan the whole sequence ourselves.Also we had to use shots like Match cut, follow the 180 degree rule and over the shoulder shots. This helped us to prepare so when we have to film and edit our thriller opening sequence we would know what shot types to use.
Throughout the shirt film we used various shot types, such as over the shoulder shots close ups, extreme close ups, wide shots,panning, etc.
