This week was again not a particularly productive one, this is because we could only use the office space for one hour that week. This is because once Viv had emailed the member of staff who’s office it was on the Monday, he said he was in there all 3 lessons. However, a few days later Viv emailed him again, and said we could use his office space. On the 26/02/15, we had time to spare so we began to edit with the footage we had already gained
This week we got some filming done. However this week was not as productive as the last, this is because:
- The desk had been rearranged almost completely
- We needed to rush filming, as the camera was on quite low battery.
After looking over the footage, Viv had decided that we needed to do an almost complete re-shoot.
This week was a productive one. We filmed a lot of footage that we have deemed to be the best quality given our limitations.
This week we were filming the main chunk of our film opening. For this section role was acting as “D.I. Gibbs” as well as assistant director.
This week our group mainly focused on the location shots of both the office and the hall used during our opening. However, as well as this, we worked on some paperwork of our pre-production documents. Adding parts, as well as editing.
The age range for our film opening will be a 12A. A 12A may contain some strong language, links to sexual encounters, and moderate violence (for example, slight sight of blood in a medical drama for example), as well as imitable behaviour (dangerous behaviour, e.g. suicide) however does not dwell on the matter. We were able to figure out which age rating was necessary thanks to the use of the BBFC website: http://www.bbfc.co.uk/what-classification/12a-and-12
The following are pictures as evidence for our work throughout the film, all of these images were taken on Isaac’s phone;
This picture is in one of the final scenes, just before the Superintendent gets kidnapped. We can just see Isaac’s hand as he is working the camera. This photo was taken by me.
This image was taken in the very first scene, when both Gwilym and I are leaving the Superintendent’s office, this photo was taken by Viv. Here we can see Isaac working the camera that we are shooting on, which is not one that school provides.
This is the story board plan for our film opening, The Case. This storyboard contains planned shots, any camera movement, and dialogue for our piece
In order to practice writing a script, we watched the opening of ‘Brokeback Mountain’. This is a script we wrote, to prepare for our script: Brokeback Mountain
