Over the course of three hours, Malory Graham and Kris Kristensen will cover scene breakdowns of traditionally classic suspense filmmakers from Hitchcock to John Carpenter, looking at the scenes from a technical standpoint including camera angles, editing, music, lighting and sound effects. We will also break down some less traditional examples to demonstrate how a little bit of suspense can go a long way in any genre of film.
