In class today, we dicussed how suspense is created within making a film. What we noticed is the visual effects and the editing of the film can create a visceral effect to the audience when watching it, using media techniques/technology such as;
Mise en scene, the lighting, props, all get the audience recognising the scenery and what sort of situation the film is trying to portray.
Sound, Digetic and non digetic sounds such as intense music etc.
And 'dramatic irony'- when the audience know something that the characters in the film do not know about, which creates an intense and on the edge feeling for the viewers.
