The Hollow of the Three Hills Trailer

I will start my e-portfolio by presenting an activity I prepeared for the story we read in our literature class called “The Hollow of the Three Hills”, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne. I made a trailer about this story as if a movie about it was going to be launched. I hope you like it!

I prepared this trailer with the previous black and white pictures in order to portray how dramatic and gothic the story is. I wanted to express the sacrifice, death, regret, guilt, desperation and bravery themes that are presented in the story. In order to achieve that gothic illusion I did the following:

I chose those pictures to prove where it was set, in a hidden hollow between crumbling mountains . To be able to portray that atmosphere of of secrets, horror and misery, I chose a picture to expose the fact that the environment is far from society, dark, at twilight. I also selected several pictures of a woman in order to describe the protagonist’s isolation. Moreover, the picture of the witch is used to state the supernatural event in the story. Furthermore, I chose a picture of her possessing the young lady in order to express the unexplained manifestation that in the story takes place. Finally I decided to include pictures of a couple in order to show the protagonist’s previous life, where she had a husband and a son, with the intention of describe it before something terrible happen!
