Decision of Film genre !!!

The time has come.... THE FINAL PROJECT !  

Sean, Charlotte and me are gonna work togehther again to make our final project. I thought a lot if I should do it by my own again or with them because with them I do not have the freedom of choice I actually need but I decided to work with them because I'm sure we are a good team and we can do it really well in addition we have prepred some nice things soon which are going to be awesome.

We thought about making either a horror or Gangster-Action movie because we thing these would be the best genres for us as we have lots of experience in this specific genres and we have some nice Ideas how we could create the right atmosphere and mood for the audience. I even thought about buying scar wax which is used in high quality movies for wounds or zombie faces... in our case I could use it in both. For the Zombie movie if I want to make a scary face and in the gangster movie for pistole wounds or generel wounds and scarfs. A link to the product: -->

However, I started thinking about the intro very carefully because thats the most important part and I thought about an Intro WHILE the film is going on without a black screen with names on. I want to make it on Zombie-land style -->
So a 3-D text which appears and which has got the same movement as the camera in the film and does not just stand there really unprofessionel. To show you what I mean I made extra this effect fast with after effects camera tracker which tracks the pixels in a specific clip and then you can put everything in it and it will use this tracked movement ... sounds confusing I know but I hope you get more from the vid !

Well, as you can see I made it realllly fast and our clip has got such a bad quality that it was nearly impossible to track the pixels. But I made it but it changed the result intense. That would be ONE of my Ideas for the intro.

We want to look at the represenatations and stereotypes a lot as well because we learned that really good in Ms. Patternson's lessons and we are sure we can fill some points of representaion. I mean we have a bunch of actors which are ready for their deployment. We just hope that we find no problems with the time and with the crew and all that... so much can went wrong and it is just incredible hard to publish the film that you are thinking about because your film never will look like that you have got in your head.


  1. How about a movie about Zombie Gangsters? Or Zombies vs Gangsters?

  2. haha I actually like the zombie gangster Idea even that I know it was just a joke ( I hope) but a zombie does'nt look good with a pistole in the hand I thing... or with a hat :D

  3. Well i still think maifa/gangster is good for our final project as its different from most genre's and is used less.
