In my group, we have decided on a story for our trailer plot based on the Film Noir Rockstar Game. Its plot will be based on the ‘Red Lipstick Murders’ homicide case.
The trailer will be loosely based on the homicide case ‘The Red Lipstick Murder’ that is featured in the Rockstar Game LA Noir.
(Edit of young woman running away from another person, edit cuts to black every few seconds, and then resumes shot of running) near river, running, looking back.
A young woman is found laying on the ground with a neck wound . One male detective and one policeman arrive on the scene (daytime) looks at various evidence such as her wound on her neck. They step closer and the scene flashes to another female victim with the same neck injury.
The murderer is the Ex-Boyfriend of the first victim. The trailer will have various shots of the detective and policemen chasing the murderer whilst having establishing shots of the the forest setting. There will be shots of blood dripping from an arm , and close ups of the detective and policemen to create a dramatic effect.

How we intend to make the trailer:
LED Light- In order to create the drastic shadows that is the main characteristic of the film noir genre.
All the actors that are featured in the trailer are all friends of the director (Vicky) and cameraman (Georgie).
Connie- Victim 1
Jack – Detective
Female Victim 1
Female Victim 2
Detective 1 – Male
Murderer Ex Boyfriend
Kingston-Upon Thames- Canbury Gardens/Lower Ham Road
Detective Costume-Brown Coat
Fake blood- to put on victim to show they were murdered
Face makeup for both female victims e.g. red face paint
Title card in the style of film noir naming the case ‘Serial Murders’
A black and white filter will be applied to the footage, and the contrast will be adjusted if needed to make the shadows more drastic.
There will be a fade to black transition and a white flash to simulate a camera flash of a forensic detective taking evidence whilst the trailer shows the victims injuries.
How the trailer will look
