Because we are producing our film opening low-budget, the software and filming equipment we have used may differ to that of the actual film film industry in some ways.
-Canon MV920 Digital camcorder
We found the cameras very easy to use and because of some of our more sophisiticated shots we chose to use manual settings rather than simply autoeffect ones.
For our vision sequence we raised theexposure to create an extrememly bright effect, almost surreal. We also used varying manual focus to create the disorientated feel.
And for the kitchen scene we used a "daylight" white balance giving an almost red tintm that signified a warm atmosphere but could also signify blood/danger etc.
The use of tripods give it that proffessional look we are going for. Unless it is intended in for example documentaries, or our walking POV shotin the vision, the frame should be still at all times with smoot movements.
The use of tripods is essential to this, and for our walking scene we used one with a handle, to make it easier.
The blood was made using a common recipe found online. All it contained was red & blue food colouring, water and glucose syrup. It was cheap to make and in the very quick cuts will look successful.
