Our location and why we chose it.

We decided to choose this location because, it was easy to access as it was within the school grounds. This made it an advantage to our group as we didn’t need to organise many after schools due to the fact we filmed in our frees. We thought this location was perfect for us because it gave us the mystery/suspense feel we was looking for. The trees and scattered leaves over the floor gave us the low key lighting we was looking for to create more of a creepy atmosphere.
