Main Task: Villain Research

In most serial killer movies, the villains have a predominant feature of which the audience pick out easily. Here are some examples below.

Bronson: Charles Bronson – Moustache

Godfather 2: Michael Corleone – Subtle perfectly dressed in all black

THE GODFATHER PART II

In this shot, chiaroscuro lighting is used to create distinct areas of light and darkness, this is to reflect his current state; of a dark established criminal. His suit; the predominant feature, non verbally communicates a powerful essence of maturity, darkness and sophistication.

S7ven: John Doe – Geeky mise en scene, baldness

John Die

 

In order to make our villain distinctive we are thinking of having a trenchcoat. This coat will cover most of the villain, giving him a neo noir slick, mysterious look. We also plan to support this by having the villain wear a suit underneath, an old cap and bandana over his face.

I have also learnt that it is a common convention to have the villain horizontally and tightly framed in the centre. This makes the villain seem powerful and therefore a threat. They are in the way of the protagonist.
