Here are some of the picture that we took whilst filming and producing the trailer from FOREST OF THE UNKNOWN:
They have ben taken in the two main locations for our trailer at The Regis School and Hotham Park. We had to slightly change the photos compared to the ones that we planned on the sheet prevfiously uploaded and there were slme reasons behind this. The first reason was that for the dominant that was going to be used for the poster we had to not use the idea of having a blood soaked and this was because the lighting was just a bit to dim, to quickly and this meant that the image was completly out of focus and this made it look blurry and not very nice. Another reason was that we tried to resovle this by using a flash on the camera that Sam had brought with us to the forest but there was an issue with this as well. The flash made the image look to “artificial” and didnt give the correct connotations off that we had orgianlly planned and so we had to think of another way that we could have the dominant on the front of the poster.
And so as a result we thought of the idea that we culd have the protagonist looking and catching up to Callum very quickly and so with Callum looking behind we thought that we would give the impression that something is about to happen to Callum and straight away after the disappearance of Ben in the forest.
These are all of the picture that we have so far taken and as you can see the main focus is on Callum, who is the main character throughout the trailer. We wanted to have the realxed school look about things because it menas that some students/people of this age bracket could relate to the situation that they have been put in, in some way or another.
As a result this is the type of connotation that we were originally going for when producing the photos
