We are filming our opening in a cul-de-sac in Silsden on wednesday 26th and friday 28th of january. The houses on the estate are detached, and middle class. The suburban setting is frequently used in the zombie horror genre, this is because shooting these scenes are easier and cheaper.
Our flashbacks are filmed during the day, this signifies tranquility and 'the good' because the light is revealing all, and the character is only just learning the incoming apocalypse.
The shots that are in the present will be dark and shot at night, this indicates that there is something evil hiding in the darkness. We will use a blue filter this is a reference to films such as 'Halloween' and '28 Days Later...', the blue filter signifies the supernatural, the cold and fear.
We will also be using time before this to purchase make-up and find useful clothes for the Zombies in our film.
