When does the title appear? We plan to show the title when the train pulls out, the title will follow the train and will speed up as the journey progresses, this will create intensity. The writing will be in red, possibly representing blood, death or danger or classic black to give no meaning creating an enigma. This will the only text to appear on screen.
How is the mise en scene constructed to create anticipation and suspense? We never see the mans true identity, only limbs etc. His outfit is plain black to create an enigma. We can contrast this mans behavior with the people around who are acting normal.
Is voice over used? We do not plan to use voice over however when we come to edit, it may be appropriate to use this, we are undecided at the moment.
Does the opening scene represent the chronological start of the narrative, or is it a flashback? Our opening scene represents a chronological start of the narrative.
