Character Development through the Camera!
Posted 24 August 2008 - 06:22 AM
I have a short film comming up and I have 3 characters.
Laura is getting stalked. We are trying to make the audience think that its Fred stalking her but it is actually Jason.
And what I was thinking was to frame Laura on the left throughout the film and put Fred on the left as well with Jason on the right. Attempting to put the heroes on the left and villians on the right. Is this a good idea?
Also manipulate the lighting as well and focus on Jason and put less light on him through the film untill the reveal.
Can anyone tell me if I am going the right way or not? and/or give me extra ideas how to character develop them better?
