Research for A5

For this task I was required to produce 2 completely separate filmic products with 3 other people. These products must clearly represent 2 different genres. Both products must come from the same script materials. For each filmic product, I will submit the following:

  • Shot-marked script
  • Storyboard(beat board)
  • Colour palette samples
  • Genre research stills
  • Filmed sequence
  • Evidence of experimentation with colour correction and filtering
 Genre Research stills

For this task, we were given a part of a script from the movie “The Godfather” and were required to produce two completely different genres of film. Our group chose the Comedy genre and the Horror genre. In order to decide what makes a good comedy and horror film, we researched some existing films in these genres.

Comedy

For the comedy genre, we’ve been looking at all sorts of comedy movie posters such as ‘Horrible Bosses’. We focused on what colours are used in a comedy film. We saw that the poster usually uses bright colours to show a sense of good feeling and laughter. It also uses text to reveal a bit of what the film is about. The fact that words are being displayed beside some of the peoples faces implies that it isn’t an ordinary film.

Horror For our horror genre we noticed that a lot of horror movie posters use really dark colours to emphasize the fear of the unknown. A good example is ‘The Exorcist’. The poster uses only 2 colours – white and black – this creates the dramatic effect of the unknown.

Evidence of experimentation with colour correction and filtering

For colour correction and filtering we used Adobe After Effects to apply the changes
