R+P Post 6: Our chosen genre and how we plan to connote this

The genre we decided on for our film was neo-noir (crime drama), a modern film noir. There are also sub genres of drama and romance due to the plot of our story.

The first way in which we decided to connote the neo-noir genre is through hiding the identity of Stacey, our protagonist throughout the opening. We plan to do this by using varied camera angles and framing. Inspiration for this convention came from the opening of Se7en, shown as a timeline below, in which the identity of the man is hidden.
Our Inspiration for Stacey's hidden identity - the film opening for Se7en.
We also plan to use medium paced music with a slightly upbeat drum beat, which is a common convention of crime thrillers as it builds up anticipation and tension We also plan to use dark graphics for our titles, as seen in the opening of both Skyfall and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
Our Inspiration for the dark graphics, from 'Skyfall'

We believe that these dark graphics connote the dark side to our film and the dark side of our protagonist, as it tells the audience that there is more to her than what meets the eye.

The last method we plan to use is by creating the protagonist to be a femme fatale character, getting dressed and putting on make up in the opening, shows Stacey as glamorous. The glamorous, sexy female is typical of a manipulative femme fatale who we later see Stacey to be, through her possible bad intentions with this unknown man, Ryan, who she appears to be stalking in our opening sequence.
