RH - Scream opening (Wes Craven, 1996)

Published by RH

In the opening to 'Scream' there is an establishing shot of the house. They cut to this establishing shot after two mysterious phones calls are made, these calls add a narrative enigma. The shot is very powerful because it makes the audience feel like someone is watching the house. Also the swing is moving which could signify that someone is there. The camera pansnon-diagetic sound down from a tree to focus on the house, from this shot we can denote that its set at night. There is given with chirping from wildlife. Suddenly it cuts to an ECU of something in the house, this is a dramatic technique as it can add suspense.

We will incorporate this technique in our film as we start our film at a house in the countryside. We will use a panning shot and eventually focus on the house, where there will be a light in a window switching off or on which will signify that two people have just been having sex upstairs. From here we will leave the house and the suspense will be created on a country road.
