Hunger games Catching Fire Trailer Analysis
The Movie trailer i have chosen is a SI-FI Action film The Hunger Games Catching Fire. The the opening of the trailer you imeadeatly see the lionsgate logo that tells you what studio created the film. in the opening sequence you are shown a clip of the beginnning of the film, in the background you can hear the main speaker projecting a speach across the audience, during this scene the camrea is shaking as if you are looking through one of the spectators view.
The background uses non-digetic sound to add ambience and a climatic buid up to the next scene where the victors are shown to the viewers.
The camerea angles use alot of medium long shots aswell as close ups on the person that is narrating the trailer, the trailer uses fading to transition between shots this adds an effect of mystery to see what clip will be used next.
As the trailer progresses they use more dramatic music so that the viewers feel like something is going to happen and that the trailer is building up to a climatic ending.
suddenly the music stops and you are faced with a close up of the main charaters to show the audience the emotion that the charater is displaying. further into the trailer the style of scene changes from a city cene to almost a riot/war style of film.
The charaters are changed from wearing civillian clothes to fancy dresses and smart suits this could show that they have been chosen for a special event, they. The Setting that the film takes place in ranges from a slum like town to a high class futureistic looking city indicating that the film could be a Si-fi based film.
the music in the backgroung fades when someone speaks so that they sound clearer and to make what they say sound more imtresting. towards the end of the trailer they switch between clips of the film and text and to make it even more dramatic they have made sure that the music links with the images by showing a major scene when the music reaches a climatic part.
close to the very end of the trailer they show the main logo of the franchise with the theme tune showing the audience what the trailer is and the name of the film. The Trailer uses alof oc CGI effects as the film itself has mainly used alof of Si-Fi scenes. the lighing that has been used throughout the trailer ranges from low key lighting to high key. The props that have been used indicate alot of fighting and riots as they have used guns and weapons.
