The shot is a closely packed mid-close up shot. The lighting is quite dark except from one source of light. It signifies the horror genre due to this. Also due to the shot being packed not a lot is being given away to the audience this helps add mystery and atmosphere.
In order to achieve this effect we turned off all lights to emulate complete darkness. We then used portable lighting in order to create a single source of light. In order to capture the tight shot we moved the camera as close as possible.
We were trying to communicate a closed off area through the darkness which hopefully the audience will interpret as horror
The shot was framed well as well as lighting. I think it manages to connote the genre horror quite well
I would change the camera we used in order to blur the background better so more focus is on the subject
