CONOR TYCHOWSKI Video Production in Buckinghamshire | Cinematography, Editing, and Colour

Location: Benson, Oxfordshire

Overview: "Suspect" is a short film that delves into the murky depths of suspicion and intrigue. Set in the confines of a small open-plan lodge, the film follows the interrogation of a reclusive accountant who becomes the prime suspect in a puzzling missing person case. As two detectives peel back the layers of the recluse's peculiar behaviour, they find themselves entangled in a web of secrets and unexpected revelations.

Key Elements:

  • Intense character-driven thriller inspired by the cinematography and editing of films by David Fincher and Denis Villeneuve. 
  • Tense interrogation scenes set against the backdrop of a secluded shack, intensifying the sense of claustrophobia and suspicion. 
  • Twists and turns abound as the detectives uncover startling truths about the enigmatic suspect. 
  • Atmospheric cinematography and snappy editing, enhancing the film's narrative and suspenseful tone.

Visual Style: To contrast the suspense and tension of the narrative, "Suspect" is a more colourful and vivid colour palette than traditional thriller films to subvert audience expectations, and blindside them as further dark revelations unravel throughout the narrative, whilst still maintaining subtle hints of the archetypal thriller look with its cold, sickly tones. 

Conclusion: "Suspect" is an exploration of guilt, innocence, and the blurred lines that separate them. With its twisting narrative and compelling performances, the film will keep viewers guessing about the trustworthiness of the titular 'suspect' until the very end.
