In order to practice using the camera and creating suspense in a scene through camera shots, angles etc. in preparation for our thriller sequence- which we will start filming in a few weeks- we made a short thriller clip based on the idea of a 'Bag swap'.
Before we started the filming, we planned out the storyline and which camera shots and angles we would use in each part of the story, for example; we used an extreme long shot to show a person's body and surroundings. Through planning, we were able to go straight into filming, knowing everything that we had to do, and how to save time doing it. This is our planning sheet -->
After planning, we knew what particular shots to use in each part of the clip. Here are some examples of the shots and angles we used and why we used them:
A long shot was used here to show the character and her surroundings; this helps to create a story in the audience's mind.
