• Dark lighting adds to the message of
mystery surrounding the characters.
Conforms to the magicians desire of
the audience's vision to be focused on
one specific area as opposed to actually
seeing the full picture. Camera angle is
mostly obscure and blocked by either
the sides of the car of from an off-
centre point, usually a long two shot or
a medium two shot at a canted angle,
further controlling the audience’s view.
3. EDITING, MISE-EN-SCENE AND
• Staging and quick screen duration with
fast jump cuts shows the high speed of
the performers intended to keep the
audience's interest peaked. Lighting
also used to make their message of
creating a spectacle, a reality. This
along with the highly energetic non-
diegetic music means that the energy
and excitement within the audience is
intended to be high.
• Diegetic sound background voice giving the warning to the main characters creates
suspense for the audience as they are about to be in trouble, This conforms to the
typical genre conventions of a thriller. Change in music from energetic to
suspenseful and simplistic acts as a way to keep introduce confusion into the
audience as to how the plot is going to be uncovered from here.
• Manipulation of the screen duration
between fast and slow as well as multiple
fades to black then flashes up to the scenes
used to disorientate the viewer. Makes the
trailer a part of the magicians' show as the
viewer is left dazed.
• Costumes are all carrying the same
theme of professional which shows the
unification between the characters,
allowing the audience to establish the
relationship between the characters as
• Synchronicity of the music ending and the female character speaking providing her
comic relief line adds to the comedic aspect of the film which gives the audience a
variety of emotions to experience from the film, making the film more appealing to
watch which conforms to the main goal of a movie trailer.
