Potential Locations Descriptio n Photograph of the location Google Map (Identify the precise location) Is it suitable (think about genre, narrati e, research you! e undertak en) " ho#$ %hy$ This is a suitable location because it is isolated and links well with my narrative. It is easy to access and looks good when the lighting fades and the shadows are on the roads.

A quiet road that heads towards the A1 but is a dead end. It’s surrounded by fields and is lined with hedges and trees that can look quite frightening in the dark as they cast shadows on the road. This location will be great for my narrative as my antagonist has been travelling along roads for days and this is the round he will arrive at

the place the film is set in on.

Access Issues • • • Easy to access as it is a concrete road about five minutes away from my house. It is a public road so I do not have to get permission to film there. There are no opening and closing times so I can film there any time I want.
