  1. some thoughts on RCut2: Opening transition – don’t fade to black; crossfade
    Any poss of a bridging shot between the 1st 2 shots?
    Tracking – again, don’t fade to black; fade up sound of steps approaching then cut in to tracking shot – could be slower (= more menacing)?
    Footsteps into audio mix (low) as Rob goes about garage?
    Cam shakes on Rob OTS
    You could zoom into Rob’s hand/s and cut to matched shot of girl’s hand/s as she goes to spoon in sugar
    Phone should ring BEFORE we see it
    Menacing music as Rob walks into room? (can still keep kettle sound)
    Maybe reverse door shutting and sniffing sound; don’t need 2nd shot of open drawer if the sniff comes once door shuts?
    Needs little more time downstairs then, give Rob time to be creepier!
    Obviously you’ve kept in arm raised while girl’s downstairs, and missed the ending
