                      1. Gun-"Function" guns are essentially highly detailed toy, replica guns. They look and feel like real guns and can be loaded with realistic looking brass bullets, but they do not fire. These are typically used for scenes that require an actor to brandish and manipulate a firearm but not fire it. These are just for show.
                        1. Glassware
                          1. Sugar Glass-Sugar glass (also called candy glass, edible glass, and breakaway glass) is a brittle transparent form of sugar used to simulate glass in movies, photographs and plays. It is much less likely to cause injuries than real glass, and it easily breaks convincingly, making it an excellent choice for stunts.
                        2. Shots,Effects and Angles
                          1. Shootings- A zoom on the gun to create tension, a zoom is a a function of a digital camera used to make the image seem more close-up.
                            1. Close up - A close up -Close-ups display the most detail, but they do not include the broader scene. Moving in to a close-up or away from a close-up is a common type of zooming.
                            2. Importance on two characters- Focus :Focusing effects, such as deep focus, shallow focus, and rack focusing, are used to direct the viewer’s attention to particular subjects and/ or actions in a frame.
                              1. Deep Focus- Whenever all of the subjects in a frame, both in the foreground and in the background, are crisp clear and are in focus, this is known as deep focus.
                                1. Shallow Focus -When using this terminology for camera focus, shallow simply means focusing on a subject, whether in the background or foreground, resulting in everything else being thrown out of focus.
                                2. Blackout when gunshot goes off and then the blackout begins to dissipate
                                  1. creates suspense which is usually found in thriller
                                3. Sound
                                  1. While characters are running deep breathing can be heard
                                    1. Sepearte recording of deep breathing which can be dubbed in.
                                    2. Glass everywhere
                                      1. sounds of glass being stepped on could give a good effect
                                      2. Sound is arguably on par with video as the most important element to be able to manipulate and control during production and post production. Too often filmmakers focus all of their attention on video footage and ignore the quality of their sound. Interestingly enough, audiences seem to be more annoyed by poor sound quality than by poor cinematography
                                      3. Zombies
                                        1. the body of a dead person given the semblance of life, but mute and will-less, by a supernatural force, usually for some evil purpose. the supernatural force itself.
                                          1. While zombie films generally fall into the horror genre, some cross over into other genres, such as comedy, science fiction, thriller, or romance. Distinct subgenres have evolved, such as the "zombie comedy" or the "zombie apocalypse". Zombies are distinct from ghosts, ghouls, mummies, or vampires, so this list does not include films devoted to these types of undead.
                                            1. he term "zombie" was introduced into American public consciousness in 1929 as a Haitian Creole world for a corpse reanimated by voodoo; soon thereafter, it was exploited by the motion picture industry in an array of horror films
                                              1. Mobile (able to move) but technically dead, without a heartbeat or other vital signs In a decaying (rotting) state, with discolored skin and eyes Non-communicative (groaning and howling instead of speaking) Unemotional, with no mercy toward victims Hungry for human flesh (zombies ignore animals like dogs or cats) Clumsy and violent Vulnerable to destruction of the brain, which kills them Unaffected by injuries, even normally fatal ones, as long as they do not hurt the brain too much Contagious: a person that is bitten by a zombie will become a zombie Does not attack other zombies, leading to swarms of zombies
                                              2. Make Up/Costume
                                                1. Horror makeup artists are responsible for creating and applying the makeup necessary to transfer actors into the characters they depict on film, TV or stage. They discuss the characters with writers, directors and actors and sometimes do research in order to create the right look. Becoming a horror makeup artist requires not only creativity and a strong visual sense, but also training and experience in the field of professional makeup, as well as strong attention to detail and the ability to recreate a character's look so continuity is maintained throughout the production
