Production titles pictures

New changes on the thriller.

We added the sounds of dogs barking as the main character walks in the garden
We also added the sound of a dial tone to the first phone message. We decided to only put this on one because the sound would start to get annoying if we had it on every phone message.
We also changed some of the titles, adding more red to them to continue the theme.
