In this shot a women walks into the house from the right side of the shot.

This will benefit our production as like 'Scream' they use this shot of panning down from a tree to focus on a house. We have decided to incoorparate this shot in our production as it is well documentated and also we have a location which complements this technique as our location is in a rueral area.
Aside from this camera technique there is not many conventions we can take from 'Axe' and apply into our production.
