Today we are considering cinematography & sound design that is conventional (typical) of horror films.
We will watch Suckablood (BC Horror) in class and use this to consider how the cinematography & sound is typically ‘horror’.
We are seeking to understand how German Expressionist cinematic techniques were the blueprint for horror films.
In pairs, one of you will be exploring cinematography:
- Lighting & Colour
Whilst the other considers sound design and music:
- Sound Effects
Make a short montage in Premiere Pro, which uses titles to identify specific features of cinematography and/or sound, which are conventional of horror.
- You should aim to find 3-5 examples of sound and 3-5 examples of cinematography
This means the video should be either silent, showing a feature of the cinematography. Alternatively the video should show a still of the scene or a title card and analyse the sound which you are describing as conventional of horror and/or influenced by German Expressionism.
