My idea for the 2 minute opening coursework task was a horror, the film When A Stranger Calls and the book The Babysitter gave me inspiration for my idea.
There have been two versions of When A Stranger Calls, one in 1979, Directed by Fred Walton.
And the re-make made in 2006
I would like to open the film with a throwback to the black and white hammer horror classics, with a twist of emphasizing the gore in colour to show reality and to create a dramatic effect on the audience, this means the last shot will be in colour.
In the opening 2 minutes we see a babysitter finishing a bed time story to a child.
Later we see her on the phone to her boyfriend as she invites him over, saying the parents won't be back till much later. A reference is made signifying the girl is sexually active.
After the call she starts to hear noises upstairs. Interposed shots used of the girl downstairs as you hear a scream from upstairs.
The babysitter goes to the girls room and finds the bed empty and blood on the bed and floor, this shot will be in colour.
