Abstract [sv]

Thriller är en favoritgenre för många och har funnits längre än de flesta tror. Ursprungligen som en litteraturgenre har den utvecklats till en av de mest eftertraktade genrerna inom film. Tidiga anmärkningsvärda verk som Alfred Hitchcocks filmer i mitten av 1900-talet har banat vägen för genren och utformat dess redigering och cinematografi till vad vi har idag. Trots sin ödmjuka början i mitten av 1900-talet lyckas teknikerna, även om dem är aningen repetitiva, fortfarande vara relevanta idag och har bara utvecklats med åren. I den här artikeln studerar vi grunderna inom thrillergenren, redigerings- och filmtekniker som används; kameraarbete, klippning, PoV och färgsättning. I denna studie är vårt huvudsakliga fokus att förstå varför dessa tekniker används. Utöver kommer vi också gå djupare in i thrillergenren i helhet och trots genrens repetitivitet, försöka förstå oss på varför den lyckas vara relevant idag och hur redigering och cinematografi spelar en stor roll för att förstärka känslorna i thrillers där dessa tendenser härrör från.

Abstract [en]

Thriller is a favourite genre to many and has been around for longer than most think. Originally starting as a genre of literature, it has evolved into one of the most sought after genres within film. Early notable works such as Alfred Hitchcock's films in the mid 1900s have paved the way for the genre and solidified it’s editing and cinematography into what we have today. Despite its humbling beginnings in the mid 1900s the techniques, although somewhat repetitive, still manage to stay relevant today and have only gotten more advanced with time. In this article, we study the fundamentals within the thriller genre, the editing and cinematography techniques that are utilized; camera framing, cutting, PoV and color. In this study our main focus we intend to work towards is understanding why these techniques are used and the tendencies in which they are facilitated. Although we also intend to go in depth into the thriller genre as a whole and despite the repetitiveness of the genre, why it manages to stay relevant today and how editing and cinematography plays a big part in amplifying the emotions and feelings associated within thrillers in which these tendencies stem from.
