Introduction

My goal with this blog is to research a topic and expand my knowledge in a field that would be useful in my other modules. currently I am interested in learning about cinematography, particularly cinematography in the horror genre. I want to look at all of the aspects that make up a shot like lighting, camera angle, framing, duration of shots and the lenses used. I wanted to pick the horror genre as it relates to my short film production module however i also believe that the horror genre has some of the most stylised and interesting cinematography in all of cinema. Overall i want to expand my understanding of the technical and aesthetic elements that make up the horror genre.
