Horror Film Shorts: What ideas will you borrow?

A film is made up of a huge variety of pieces.

Watch these films and see what pieces you find interesting and worth “borrowing” in your own films.

  • Story:  Is there a beginning, middle, end, conflict?
  • Cinematography:  What choices did they make for angles, cuts, shot types, colors, lighting, etc?
  • Acting:  How did the actors perform? Believable?
  • Set Design:  What choices did they make for how the location looked?
  • Sound Design:  In addition to music, what sounds did they add to make the story better and more believable?
  • Costumes:  What clothes and colors were chosen to help the story?
