Lights, Camera, ANIMATIC

For our preliminary movie, we had to create an animatic (a rough outline of our actual film containing ideas for shot types and angles) using jelly babies and a still camera. YUM! 
Our idea: A murder! We start off with a dead jelly baby, blood oozing from his torso, in this section we use lots of close ups before having a long shot to show the audience what's really going on. Then, (as a cool twist) we show that there is a witness to the slaughter! However, at this point the audience isn't clear on weather she is a witness of the murderer....tense eh? 
Then we see the witness outside a door, waiting to go inside to be interviewed, here we have a variety of shots from a range of angles, then the witness walks in, here we have a series of match cuts as well as shot reverse shots, always following the 180-degree rule of course. =) We then added the song, Make me wanna die - The Pretty Reckless, as it has an eerie intro and the lyrics seemed to fit the storyline pretty well! 
Here is our Animatic......
