I have chosen two short films from YouTube which I found really interesting and kind of inspiring to watch because I thought they were really well executed.. By which I mean they both left me eager to produce my short film. Although they don’t necessarily fit the genre I intend on producing but they both have elements of tension and a sort of complex story through the way they are edited.
Quick paced montage of blood shots in various locations of the house. This will be accompanied by a layer of sound which will be the arguing
The family is at the dinner table and there is a brief ‘introduction’ of each character, so we have a mid-shot of the character and a flash forward of sinister event.
Fade to black
Faded in sounds of the arguments grow
Then we have shot facing the door of which room the argument is commencing. The camera follows the woman upstairs and into the bathroom and is put to the floor, where we discover it is the eldest daughter has taken herself to the bathroom then she screams for everything to stop. Adding in shots to show the passing of time this is where she changes to her ‘psychotic’ state.
Time has passed (night time) and the eldest daughter emerges from the bathroom making her way to the sisters bedroom.
This is going to be the morning after which is the first scene. (Dead bodies)
AGE 17-20 POSSIBLY -30
GENDER males and females.. Equal ratio
CLASS working class and the characters are working class

So, the summery of my product is to produce a five minute drama/ thriller short film.
The aim is to create suspense, scare and excite the audience
The story is around a investigation or and enigma
Rational over supernatural
Focus on one character
Typical setting (house/flats)
The audience should be able to relate in some ways
Being able to edited so that it reflects the genre
Filming everything well so that I don’t have to go back and film
Weather, the change in weather will determine what days to shoot
Filming alone will limit second opinions
Got everything right the first time
My audience likes my short film and they get the story.. Genre etc.
My characters are convincing and create real drama
I edit with precision an take me time
