Projection


Mixing the world of the past with the current world visually will enhance the drama of this film.

Projected film will be used within the attic to imitate film reels of the 1940s to show parts of the story – not just the long forgotten past, but recent events in the community.

Starkness

Keeping the images with a stark contrast of deep color and flat grey will provide the feeling of a desolate, almost ghost town.

Wide shots of empty streets will be used to show the impact of modern-day economics on what was once a vibrant place to live.

Other Worldly

In contrast to the town, the attic will be filled with bright, warm light. It is a safe welcoming place, but so different from the feel of the town that it is slightly terrifying.

Dutch Angles

From the start of the film, dutch angles will be used to show how things are just a bit off in this town.

Showing that things are not quite right, not in synch.

Mystery

Tight shots will be used so that a full picture of the attic forms first in the viewer’s mind.

Pushing in to the faces of the girls locked in the attic lit with candlelight will create tension and intrigue as we learn what Hannah (the ghost) represents.

Haunting

In the dream sequences, where Sasha is haunted by Hannah’s past, layered images will be used to reflect a swath of memories coming out.
