Film Study 5 - Get Out (2017)

This is a film study of Jordan Peele's monumental film "Get Out" which he wrote and directed. As I learn a bit about storyboarding I am looking back to some of my old favorites for inspiration for shots. And looking at how they were shot makes me understand filmmaking so much more. I got a rough idea for this template from Studio Binder and have been using it to map out the film. If you haven't seen the trailer for the film check it out here. This film was groundbreaking in so many ways. As a huge fan of horror films like The Nightmare on Elm Street, The Shining, Aliens, People Under the Stairs, Return of the Living Dead, it's great to finally see Black film makers telling stories we've never seen before. I love this film. What's your favorite scene?


Synopsis:
Now that Chris and his girlfriend, Rose have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.
