Shot: Establishing shot Music: A warm tune is accompanying the cheerful Christmas night. Carols can be heard in the distance (diegetic) Technique: Mis-en
All of a sudden...
Suddenly, something catches his eye. As he makes his way around the room, he sees the shed door standing wide open, a strange figure standing inside. Shot: Eye Level Shot Music: Silence, to emphasise confusion, but the warm background music turns darker and colder, playing very quietly, to emphasise the suspense created by the situation. The carols are still playing (diegetic).
He wakes up...
The figure is pacing the room, examining a now open trapdoor his parents had never revealed to them. Who is this man? What is his business here? He seems somehow familiar. Why? Shot: Low Angle Shot Music: Slowly getting louder, but still not too loud. The carols are still going, becoming slightly irritating as we wait for somebody to act.
Shot: Detailed Shot of the poster Music: Nothing except for two loud drum bangs (non-diegetic). On the first one, we see the poster in detail, and on the second we switch to the next scene, which wakes the boy up Technique: Dramatic Irony when it focuses on the poster
Shot: Detailed, Eye-Level shot (Framing for emotion) Music: The music is the same cold, threatening music as before, but is quickening to emphasise the boy's heartbeat going up in fear at what he sees next... Technique: Point of View editing, with only one phase. This gives the audience the reaction before the thrill, keeping them in a second of suspense.
... Music: Silence Technique: Camera is not a Camera. The camera is looking from the boy's perspective to give the audience the proper thrill of what he sees.
