The idea of our film opening is:
about a woman who owns a home salon in a secluded area. She is around thirty years old and she tortures her customers in her salon due to the impact that the media has had on her concerning the "ideal body" and "looks". She tortures/kills her victim by using salon equipment e.g hot wax and also an axe.
The beginning of the opening will consist of the salon owner/killer setting up before her customers arrive for their appointments.
The target audience: for our film is teens and above but is not suitable for under 15's.
The mise-en-scene: will be a made up woman with tied back hair and beauty equipment in the room.
We will shoot our opening in a a secluded house with trees. This contributes to the fact that most horror films are set in secluded areas.
There is narrative enigma: at the start you think she is the victim not the killer.
For the cast: we are going to have a real beauty technician to play the role of the killer.
We will have a woman and a man waiting in the waiting room. We chose a man to break the stereotype of the male always being the aggressive character and the woman always taking up up the scream queen role.
Shot types: We will have an establishing shot of the house and a point of view shot from the salon owner, a close up of the wax equipment, a close of of a kettle boiling and a medium close up of the other customers that are waiting.
