Ahead of filming we have decided that we will only feature two props in our 2 minute film opening. The props used shall be a old kitchen knife and some fake blood. We have selected these two props having the conventions of the thriller genre which our film will be, in mind. We believe that using just two props will be effective and help add to the desired atmosphere we want to create as well as add depth to our storyline.
The Fake Blood Covered Cloth
I used the fake blood I made and covered the tissue with it. This is what the knife will be placed in; giving the effect that the left over blood on the knife has been wiped off using the cloth.
The knife is just an old kitchen knife. We chose a kitchen knife because, we wanted it to look like the teenage boy had picked it up in the kitchen.
