Proposed Camera Shots

When the first person is running have a track shot so it looks like they're being chased/followed
Point of View
This will be a shot from the first and second person showing what they can see. This makes the audience feel as if they're actually there. The first person will show the woods and the second person will show the first person but in the distance. The following image is an example of what a P.o.V shot looks like.
This will be a wide shot of the woods, the first person running will enter the shot on the left and whilst he is running through the woods, the shot will pan around (almost following him across the woods), once the shot gets to a certain point the person running will exit the shot to the right. This shows the location as well as the people in the opening sequence. The following clip is an example of a pan shot but in our shot there will be someone running through the shot.

Upwards Tilt
This shot will be almost a point of view shot from the fallen persons view. It will start off showing the woods at ground level and then will tilt upwards towards the sky showing the ceiling of the woods. The chaser will then slowly enter the shot from the bottom of the shot, which makes them look powerful and in control of the fallen person.
Match on Action
This shot shows the lead up to an action and then a close up of the following action that was built up to in the previous shot. This means that it jumps from a mid to close up shot. In our opening sequence this can be used when the first person is running away and trips over an object laying on the floor of the woods. The lead up to the falling can be the person running and then the close up can be their foot hitting the object and then it could switch back to a mid/wide shot of the person then falling over.

Location Possibilities

Sparrows Wood

We could go into Sparrows Wood and shot our opening sequence in this woods. Sparrows Wood is located in Petts Wood, which is easily accessible and you are allowed to enter the woods, there are paths feeding throughout the whole woods.


This woods is located in West Wickham. As can clearly be seen access is allowed and there are paths feeding through the woods.

Elmstead Woods
This woods is located in Elmstead but it isn't as crowded by trees as much as the previous locations, which means that too much light will probably get into the shot, which is not the type of lighting we are looking for.

The Warren
This woods is located in Keston and has very minimal clearings and there are minimal paths, which gives the deserted look of the shot, which is what we are mainly looking for.

Opening Sequence Pitch

In our opening sequence we are planning for it to be a crime thriller. It will start off with someone running and there will be multiple shots of them running such as; track shot from behind, close up (person running holding the camera pointing at themselves), point of view shot (person running holding camera showing what they can see), pan shot (person running enters shot from left and then shot pans following person until they leave shot on the right). The camera will switch to a person chasing the first person whilst holding a knife. The shots will be identical or similar to the first person. The following images are examples of the types of shots that will be captured when we are filming.
The first person running will then fall over something and there could be a match on action of the object in the way and then the first person falling over. The next shot will be a tilt shot from the fallen persons point of view and it will show the ground level and the first person walking towards the second and then it will tilt to the sky and the second runner will slowly enter the shot and it will be a close up or mid shot of them. The screen will then go black to create tension and then the title of the film will pop up and there will be a sharp high pitch music that plays to cause the viewers to be scared. The next shots will be freeze frames from different angles of the person on the floor and the credits will fade in and then fade out and switch to the next shot.

Storyboard Idea

This is a storyboard plan that I have created, which could be what happens in the opening sequence I am going to film. In this it starts off with someone running away in a woods and then it switches to someone chasing them whilst holding a knife. It constantly switches between the 2 people whilst they running and shouting out. The first man trips over something in the woods and the next scene is the person chasing slowly enters the shot and looks down at the person who tripped. The shot could then fade into a black screen and then the credits start to fade in and out. The last shot is the man chasing standing over the fallen man, after this the scene could go black again.
