Our Inspirations That We Got From Se7en

the opening sequence of Se7en had caught our eyes as soon as we saw it. the opening sequence starts with close-ups and extreme close-ups which makes th film build tension. the effcet of these close-ups and extreme close-ups creates an atmosphere and builds tension as the audience that are watching thistry to figure out what the film is trying to hide as they cant see much from the cloe-ups and exteme close-ups. this use of cinematography will definatly be considered and used for our opening sequence for "Checkmate".

Opening Sequence Of Se7en

yesturday we finally had our actor acting for us. his acting was really good and his appearance did look like a russian person as we wanted someone to look like the russian pshco killer. we film couple of clips with this actor and have now decidid that he will be our actor for this opening sequence.

we chose to have an actor from the performing arts but the actor we chose isnt very reliable as hr does not attend college often so we chose to do the acting ourself.
