The trailer for the Blair witch project really grabs the audience attentions throughout the trailer, at the start of the trailer tension is created by a woman breathing heavily in the background, a black background is the only thing visible to the audience at first then a short paragraph appears on the screen giving a brief overview about the film. The woman breathing heavily begins to speak; she talks very quietly almost whispering as if somebody or some being is over hearing her speak. She starts to apologise to her friends parents and her parents as if she has got them in to some kind of trouble.   I personally felt that the non digetic sound effects crated the most tention because it created a very creepy atmosphere and it kept you aware because you could sense something was about to go wrong.
