Transitions

PowerPoint Presentation:

When researching film trailers of a similar genre I found that they mostly include the transitions cut, fade to black and dissolve. Therefore, when creating our film trailer I used these transitions where appropriate.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fade to black In our trailer we used fade to black to link many of our shots from the beginning to the end. Fade to black brings in the darkness that reflects our genre and also links to our title back ground which is black. In this scene the fade to black links the hand smashing against the window with Anna ducking and then running. This signifies that something eerie and unusual is happening, intriguing the audience to find out. Fade to blacks are often used in thriller and horror films. They bring in the darkness and sense of unknown that the films are supposed to reflect.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Cut Cuts are used in every film trailer as they link scenes with continuity so that the audience doesn’t notice. In thriller/horror films there tend to be quick cuts towards the end of the trailer which along with the music build the tension and excitement. In our trailer we used quick cuts to build this tension. When Anna walks through the corridor there is quick cross cutting to fragments of Lydia’s body tied up intriguing the audience leaving them wondering what has happened. The pace of the cuts excites the audience and leaves them wanting to see the film to find out the true story. In our film we used cuts to make the events flow, and this continuity allowed the audience to discover what was happening, especially at the beginning of the trailer.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Dissolve A dissolve links the scenes either slowing or fastening the pace, making the events intriguing as though pulling the audience into the film. In our film we used a dissolve to show the pace of the film fastening and the events becoming tense as the scene on the right provokes Anna to go back to the cottage to save Lydia. The dissolve drags the audience into the next scene building their excitement of what Anna is going to do and discover.
