One of the main focuses on this shoot was to create a sense of fear by using a manikin that is void of emotion. In the hit film “I Am Legend”, Francis Lawrence (director) does an amazing job of doing that, he positions the scene so that the manikin seems out of place. This causes the viewer to question how they got there? and why? It works well as it causes a loss of security, in the film it is also supported by the fact that the main character was under the impression that he is alone in the city.

Here is a photo from the film the shows a manikin that is out of place:

From this decided to used an abandoned corridor and stair case to create, what i would would describe as my take on the “I am Legend” scene.
