LIGHTING

Low Key Lighting


This technique of lighting creates a
very dark shadow like effect across the
frame. By producing shadows in
scenes; it creates illusions and
highlights key features adding tension
and suspense. This is an important
convention for a thriller movie- it is
usually used in disequilibrium to
clearly signify equilibrium and
disruption of equilibrium to restrict
information from the audience about
the antagonist. Having a contrast of
low key and high key lighting it can
make a clear division between the
protagonist and antagonist rules.

EDITNG
FLASH CUTTING:
Editing is a variable concept to making a thriller movie very powerful. One of the popular
editing techniques, which can be symbolism for the thriller genre, is flash cutting. This is a
short quick shots; producing a weary or, jumpy atmospheric mood on the target audience.
Mimicking a heartbeat of the target audience or protagonists.

MONTAGE OF SHOTS:

A montage of shots is used to juxtapose shots in a fast-pace nature that compresses time
and conveys a lot of information in a short time period. Again this can imitate the fast

shots can also signify some subliminal cuts,
as the fast pace of the cuts may reveal hidden information, which is too quick for the

Genre conventions for a


Thriller.

De-Saturated Lighting:

Another lighting technique used highly


in thriller productions is De-saturated
lighting; this creates a pale over-cast
to the atmosphere. This dismantles
any elements of any confusion on the
target audience believing the movie
can get a comedic effect. From an
audiences point of view this connate
foreshadowing of bad events or
atmosphere, which may be
represented later in disequilibrium.

NARRATIVE
RESTRICTED NARRATION:
This narrative style is used mainly in
thrillers as if only allows minimal
information for the target audience.
Overall building up tension and
engaging the audience more, creating
enigma for them.

CANTED ANGLE:

The idea of a canted angle to make the


illusion of confusion or something isnt
right- this fits in with the genre thriller
as it builds up tension for the peak of
the film.

Sound is important in thrillers when needed to


build up tension, non-diegetic deep muted
sounds do this; making the target audience
engage more to the narrative or even creating a
psychological relationship between the
protagonist, antagonist or other characters. Deep
sounds connate to the audience as to when a bad
even will occur.

SYNCHRONOUS:

Sounds in thrillers are most powerful when


synchronous to the movie; meaning they are in
time. Once the target audience have developed
sense of the rhythm they are able to tell when
the next tensed scene will occur.

PARALLEL:

Parallel sounds are used to focus the sound and


image together allowing the target audience to
produce a link between the two; letting more
