Film opening - Mise-en-scène

As we're making the opening for a historical film set approximately 80 years ago, Mise-en-scène is incredibly important for making our opening look believable, interesting and showing good continuation.
We wrote a list of items we could potentially need and went about trying to collect them. This ensured that when it came to filming we had a convincing set with excellent Mise-en-scène.
  • Any bullets, bullet casings or shells.
  • Any military style uniform, such as boots, military jackets and hats.
  • Indicators of the location, era and situation the characters are in (war time) 
  •  Documents and papers, some with black boxes over parts of the text.
  • Ashtray
  • A smoking fire/camp fire, or a campfire effect.
  • Any replica weapons
Combined with our plans of making the titles and music represent the location and era, this will make our film opening look authentic.
