Which Characters in the film correspond to each archetype? Do any of the characters fulfill more then one role? Are any of the roles fulfilled by more than one character?
Ken (villain/hero): Ken is an interesting character as he fulfills different archetype roles. He begins as the villain, as he is assigned to kill Ray. However after he stops Ray committing suicide, he understands Rays guilt. his close friendship with Ray and his religious morals he disobey orders by not killing Ray. Thus not fulfilling his role as a villain. Instead, changing it to hero. He then tries to save Ray by sending him away, eventually this leads to his own death for disobeying orders. However even through his death he attempts to help Ray as his suicide gets the attention of Ray who then see's Harry moving in to kill him.

As it turned out there were more things that we needed, and other things that we didn't. For one, we no longer had 6 characters, so we only needed 4 tops, pants, and chairs. And we decided that if the characters didn't have shoes it would be more suitable for the situation/ story. We also decided that we were not going to paint the location or the room as the dirty walls were what we actually wanted. Monique and I were exploring an alternative perspective of the afterlife in our film. The dirty walls and the stained/rusty windows was something that was contrary to a stereotypical scenario of heaven/ the afterlife.
-Broom (for cleaning the site and to attach the mic)
-White tops x4
-White pants x4
-Black skirt (for the receptionist)
-White chairs x4
-Name tags x4
-Vase and flower
The location is an abandoned warehouse in Sai Kung. Lots of level, mostly covered in graffiti.
From different angles, you can get different effects from the lighting (lighter/darker).
We picked this floor because it was the cleanest and not a lot needed to be done to improve it.
We will have to make sure we are able to exclude the more obvious graffiti. The size of the rooms will make for interesting shots.
(From the door)
The room we picked is on the far end of the third floor. It hasn't got too much that needs fixing up, and it's got great natural lighting.
(From the opposite corner of the door)
We are going to leave the room and the feel of the warehouse slightly grubby and roughed up so that it doesn't have that pristine clean feel to things.
We found this security camera in the room next to it. If possible remove it and put ti in our room?

Example of a film student's final film. I found their use of sound particularly effective, and the fact that there wasn't any music and not a lot of dialogue and just limited sound effects really added to the suspense. Over all I felt that this would have been a very successful piece.
