Analysis of trailer- Film Noir
Introduction of characters
This is the first introduction of the protagonist, “Marion Crane” that the
audience sees. This close up of her sets the horror tone as her white shadowedface contrasts the black background- symbolising her vulnerability amongst thehorror and the beginning of the terror. The shadows are also key in a film noirfilm and create a more sinister, uncertain tone.
The audience is introduced to thetypography very early in the film,as the modern trailer focuses on
the ‘classic context’ of the film.
The text itself unfolds in a peculiar,striped style- alluding theentrapment of the protagonist andher imprisonment in the motel.The non-diegetic soundtrack alsosets the theme of entrapment as itchanges into a sudden, staccatonote, decreasing the previousnoise of the rain.
