During our trailer, we used various props to allow us to enhance the scare factor of our trailer, for example; the diary which we use has been covered in coffee and made to look old using a tea bag, and whilst we were drying it out, we bent the spine to make it look old and used. Finally we wrote messages in it such as 'I HAVE YOUR SOUL' in red ink, to use the connotations of danger and blood. In the trailer the diary is the main feature, as the title of our horror film is 'DEAR DEVIL', so the diary represents the devils way of possessing the person who reads it, which is why we focussed on it, and also used it in most of the shots. Also we use the rocking horse which we found in Laura's loft, to use the stereotype from most horror films of the children being the ones who are possessed and you always get the typical rocking horse or toy being featured within the trailer to show that. Another reason why we used it, was because of the noise it made, we found it was made most intense when the room was completely quiet and pitch black, like it is on our trailer. This way the audience is fixated on the rocking horse and the eerie noise it makes, as well as charlotte sitting on top of it with the diary in her hand.
