Hi, I'm an AS Media student, and this blog contains research into the different aspects of film and media, specializing in the Slasher genre. The research has all been put towards the development of my coursework production 'Camp Ivy', which I co-produced with Poppy and Millie. Our coursework has been influenced by the rural locations and mise-en-scene in Friday the 13th and Eden Lake.

Microdrama: Planning

The theme of our microdrama will be horror, involving 4 characters - a news reporter, a murderer and 2 members of the public. Because there are 5 people in our group, we will assign the camera job to the 5th person without a role in the film.

The film will be set in a public area, most likely Ilkley park. The opening scene will be a live news report taking place. We will then follow the 2 members of the public, which will lead to something major happening. We plan to finish the film with another live news report, concluding the previous events.

We have made a story board including the different shot types and angles, which will benefit us when shooting the footage as we will have pre-made decisions, which will speed up the filming process.

It will be ideal for us to film in the evening when it is dark, but still light enough to see properly. This will create more of a sense of terror and mystery, and also because major horror films tend to be set at night, such as Halloween, Scream, House at the End of the Street etc.
