In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms of conventions or real media productions?

During the planning and research part of the process, I looked at different deconstructions with the same genre as my own to take note of the types of conventions that were used in the films that I could then incorporate into my opening. For example we looked at ‘Silence of the Lambs’ when discussing the screen play titles and how they were written to show the type of film it was going to be. Although we didn’t end up using the similar type of titles with the backward writing and such we did take the way that it was shown into consideration and it helped us to see what would look good on ours. We also looked at the different types of camera angles that are used in thriller films and after watching a few that ‘point of view shots’ were interesting ones to use to capture the audiences’ attention and make them wonder what was going on. However when it came to the audio sound of the film, we tried something a little bit different, something that hadn’t been done as many times, we decided to use instead of an eerie piece of music over the top of the film to create suspense and tension that we would use heavy breathing to show the audience of the nervousness of the character and get their minds thinking why it is we want to portray the character this way.
