Setting 1 — Police Station
the police station was picked as the start ofthe trailer
because there needs to be a setting that tells the story of
what happened to the stalker at the beginning, and to show
the audience that he is obviously dangerous as he was
Imprisoned. The police station was the first idea to use for
legal reasons as there may be issues with taking videos or
pictures in front ofthe court house in case you require a
pass or permission to do so.
The location ofthe police station is a good idea as the
setting is dark and old because ofthe state ofthe building
and that it was build before 2000 and had poor
maintenance, making it look older and more believable for
the audience the think it was shot in the past.
Setting 2 — Front ofthe School
The school was chosen as the main area of
which the stalking is seen to have started. This
is because there is a big fear that paedophiles
and creeps stalk children from the front ofthe
schools, meaning that there is a genuine fear
and that it could be a s simple as over looking
the acts. This then adds more realism to the
trailer and movie. As the school is also a new
building it emphasises the changes the times
from when the stalker enters the police station
and when he is released.
Setting 3 - Jacks Drive
The setting ofJacks drive is to connote that her
parents are leaving, this is important to take note
in that the scene of where the protagonists
parents are leaving as this is when she is left alone
and vulnerable. It also shows the audience that the
house is pretty much isolated bar the main road of
which is usually not busy. This would add to the
atmosphere of the setting and that the start ofthe
true stalking that she notices will take effect.
Setting 4 — Jacks house
Jacks house was chosen as the prime location
for most of the shooting for the trailer as his
house is what is conventional for a horror
movie as it is a village house that is secluded
from any major town or city for miles. This
also works to our advantage in the sense that
we will have little disruption during the filming
of the trailer.
Jacks house also has the conventional lighting
of the horror genre which can be controlled
using light dimmers and flood lights outside.
