In ECMP355, we were asked to make a “door scene” using iMovie.
Here’s the description of the scene:
A person is about to open a door. The person hears a sound and becomes mildly concerned.
The person ﬁnds the door locked and searches for his or her keys. The person hears the sound
again and becomes visibly apprehensive. As the ﬁlmmaker, your goal is to build tension and
growing panic, using any visual element or device that you can think of.
The ﬁlm closes with the person ﬁnally opening the door and getting to the other side safely.
Here, you want to communicate to the audience the character’s feeling of relief and safety.
