Phillip Cullen AS Media: AS Media Opening Rough Cut.
This is the first problem you will notice about our film. We must change the fact that you can hear our voices, we will do this by adding our soundtrack in. Our soundtrack will be a guitar played backwards and slowed down. This adds a very sinister effect to our film, that will suit our genre well. Some of the background noises will be amplified and made hyper-real.
The main part we need to change with editing is the length of some of our shots. As you can see our opening sequence is 3:38 minutes long, meaning that we will have to cut out 1:38 minutes. We will do this by shortening some of the shots that seem to go on for too long and cut out some of the shots that are just retakes.Titles will also be needed in the final cut. Lastly the order of which some of the shots are in will need to be changed.
A shot of the masks that the killer has collected will be shown. This shot consists of 4 different masks being hung on the wall, some of these are suspended by the eye sockets.
The only problem we found regarding cinematography was the steadiness of some of the shots, this can only be helped by slowing down some of these shots therefore making the movements smoother.

Our opening sequence consists of a collection of distorted close ups of a crime scene. It starts with a blurred shot of the feet of a corpse, this shot moves up the legs finishing when it gets to his knees. The next shot shows the killer stepping into some blood and picking it up with his hands. This will cut back and forth between the killer and the corpse, showing blood stained clothing and plastic sheeting. There is a quick shot of the blood on the wall and will cut back to the body's arm where it will track upwards towards the shoulder. At this point there will be a shot of Cam smearing blood on the walls with his hands. Next will be Cam doing his tie and straightening it. This will then cut to Cam putting on his jacket and turning to face the camera with his mask on. Phil's face is then shown in a close up which will then pull out with his eye being in the center of the shot. The last shot will be of a cup of blood from below being stirred by a paint brush. Here is where the titles will be shown and will then fade to black.
