In preparation for filming our horror trailer, we shot a sequence of me opening a door. Although it was only a short sequence, we needed to think about the angels, shot types, framing as well as the duration of our shots. We filmed the same sequence of me opening a door multiple times, in order to shoot it from various angles. Therefore we had to ensure that I did the exact same thing each time. We predominately used mid-shots, with one point of view shot, to build tension. In addition to this,we made the segment of me opening the door handle slow motion, to create an ominous atmosphere. Once we had finished filming, we added synchronous, tense music, to create a sense of anticipation.
