We starts to film from the second section of our thriller opening. Its shows the abused girl and her mental problems. We starts with a close up of her face with a doll. We wanted to create a feeling of coming inside
the character's mind. We added some extra effect like flashy backgroups to make this idea look more stand out. The doll emphasis her innocence and back to her childhood.
Then we put lots of overlapping shots with the mist important things in her live.
There is picture of her mum (her secret abuser), ballerina, and ballet shoes.
To take it more realistic we also added some other special make-up effect of bruse, cuts and tired eyes.
There is a trace on her arm of someone holding her too tigh. We did it by the dark brown lipstick, purple eye shadow and black eyeliner. I think this shot is very effective because it showing how hard she is hurt, but in the same time she is still a child. She is trying to escape to another world- world of toys and dolls, becuase they are only things which can not hurt her as same as human.
We also adds some cuts on her leg. We did it as same as the burst on the arm. We used a lipstick, eyeshadow and eyeliner. It looked very naturalistic . In this shot, we tried to show that the way she is hurt is not so obviousl as it could seem. Some of them are easy to spot but some are hidden by the piece of cloth. Victoria tries to hide the cut, by pulling the sock up to her knee. It question her mental conciousness, because she could done it by herself. We also make her eyes look darker as they normal are.
We put some of the purple eyeshadow and black eyeliner. We bluured everthing under the eyes to make it look more realistic. We tried to create a sense of ' not taking care of herself'. She is located in the dark room with limited amoung of light. Her only friend is a doll. She does not want to come up , becuase she is scared of being hurt again.
