More direction

So after our talk with Alan we realized we could tell more of the narrative just based on the construction of the environment. We completely missed this perspective me especially as we wanted to tell the story well, that we never thought of the type of shots a mis en scene of our trailer.

So we was directed to Edward Hopper's work, to which we covered in unit 3 for our uncanny project.

His work is tells a story that is ambiguous, that changes  meaning with every different viewers perception. its through staging and lighting. It  sets up a atmosphere but leaves the audience to decide that reason.

This is exactly what we need to achieve, to be able the Detective is a lonely and sardonic man for whatever reason. He especially needs to be set up in an environment that reflects his mood and outlook of the case.
