The feedback I received from my, very rough, first draft highlighted that i needed to create a more ominous atmosphere by making a lot of the longs duration shots into short duration shots and creating jump scare shot. In addition to re-filming some footage,I need to add in titles as well as my ident which will be evident within my second, more polished, draft.
My animatic gave me a rough idea of how I wanted my film opening to look like.

We created and planned a storyboard for our film openings so we had a rough idea of which camera shots and where we would film. I decided that I would have the movie opening in black and white so that it could create an old fashioned and eery atmosphere.
This Mundane Task allowed us to show how even mundane activities can be made to look interesting or entertaining with the correct editing, camera angles and music.

The editing analysis task allowed me to differentiate between different camera shots and how these affect an audience and convey certain themes or tones.
