These three clips are taken from the shot film titled The Drought directed and written by Kevin Slack. I liked the film but in particular, I liked the opening for the film. The first thing the audience are presented with is that of a blurry image of an old man with the sound of him breathing heavily, we assume to be struggling. The camera then focuses on the man and we see his face clearly, whilst still hearing him struggle. Within 20 seconds, the screen then cuts the title of the film THE DROUGHT and all sound is cut off.

I found it has similarities to the script that my group have decided to make for Film-TV1. We particularly are interested in lighting and music. These next to shots really inspire me in terms of lighting. I really like how they focus on his face with the stream of light surrounded by darkness.
