Main Task: Filming Progress

This week, our group has started and almost completed our filming for the opening 2 minutues of a film.

13th February - We arrived at our location and discovered it was unavailable to film in, therefore our group moved to a similiar location to begin filming. The weather remained consistent, however it involved light rain which we resolved around, using it to create more of a dreary atmosphere. We did not manage to complete all of our filming in this day, but we filmed the scenes with the characters and car, since this was the only day that our characters were available for.

14th February - Our group needed to film the beginning establishing and long shots of our location (the woods) and so we used this day to find the shots we needed such as panning of the woods. We found many different areas that we used for our location shots which was useful and successful in creating a mystery.

However, we realise we will need to film more shots because there were shots that we have missed, therefore we will find a suitable day during the week to complete our filming.

Main Task: Dates for Filming

The dates we have chosen for filming:

13th-14th February- We will be filming over the course of two days, aiming to film most of our opening in one day, to keep the consistency of the surroundings and the weather. We hope to be finished by the end of half term, allowing us plenty of time to edit.

Main Task: Media Pitch

As part of our Research and Planning, our group organized a pitch to give an overview of our film and the planning involved. Here is the link to a presentation we used as our guide.

Main Task: Script

After choosing the actors for our film, we have already set a basic script for our characters to follow. However, we wanted the script to be quite natural therefore the characters will use the script as a rough guide for them to continue with an 'on script improvisation' meaning they will be able to perform naturally, adding in their own dialogue when necessary.
