My media product challenges forms and conventions of real media products especially in the thriller genre.

I have also learnt that different shots and distances can play a roll in how we see the actors emotions or lack of them in some cases. This is especially highlighted in the main villain in my media product where the lack of emotion is apparent and un nerving. I have done this to highlight that this is not his first murder and that he is experienced
