Inspiration - "Scary Shots"

During the earlier stages of planning our teacher Mary showed us various examples of thrillers, here are some examples of some typically thriller shots that inspired our work, these shots were used as stimuli for our final film.

Above is a screen shot from the film "jackie Brown" it stars Samuel L. Jackson and Robert De'Niro  - specifically it was directed by Quentin Tarantino, a film director that definitely has inspired me as a film maker. Next to the screenshot of the "Jackie Brown" film is a screenshot from our AS Media submission "Lying With The Enemy" here you can see that we have interpreted the "below" camera angle from the film and put it in ours.

Here is a screen shot from 2005 motion picture release "Bomb The System" directed by Adam Bhala Lough. Here a split screen is used to show two things that are happening at the same time and are in correlation with each other, for our production, in the editing process I decided to interpret it and use this idea for the London-based establishment shots. This fits in with the "London has two sides" theme of our narration.

Above is a screen shot from Guy Ritchie's 2000 film "Snatch" in this film the editor uses a screen shot to introduce a character, which is an important addition to the film. For our edit we used a screen shot to highlight a key moment in the film and focus on a specific part of our narration.
