Here are my notes I made when watching the film:
camera, strange sounds, piles of stones, strange items hanging on branches, automatic focus
of handy camera is crazy, camera is looking on ground, no worry about
composition, all of this elements support the authenticity, mystery, darkness,
"Hello" (Is anybody out there) scene: dark, we just hear some strange
sounds, we did not see anything just the team members lightened by camera light
beam. Great scary scene.
have a map but no notion about a compass, they are lost in the wood)
without composition. The camera is long zoomed and is dancing forth and back between
the figures, looking on their mackintoshes. It must be real!!! :-)
29:13 nearly black shot with visible noise caused by low sensitive camera,
some noises. Alone in the dark wood. "It must be a dear". Great work
with sound, I was really scared.
a quarrel about the map. Great sequence how to build a forlornness, despair, conflict.
curious things from branches hanging on tree branches. I like especially that
one when I thought it is high as the trees but it was close up shot!
the night is here again, we are in the tent, it is dark, we do not see
anything, after a while the camera is on and focused on a textile. We see
children voices for a moment and suddenly something is drumming on the tent and
they run away of the tent. They turn the camera light off and we listen the
sounds. Amazing how to build scary atmosphere.
nice black and white shots of trees.
strange voice again like Josh is shouting (he disappeared). Here I notice the
noise of camera. Again, scary sequence with a sound of wind.
1:10:13 The house. We see that sequence through two cameras. Josh is shouting Mike's
name. They want to find him but someone is there ...... We are left with
questions .... who was there? The witch? I do not think so, what about the
notions about children at the beginning of that story.
movie with scary, loneliness, forlornness, despair atmosphere.
