Filming Pick Ups.

We discovered when editing that we had a lack of close up shots to knit the title sequence together well. We are having to go out filming again in order to make sure we really get all the shots we need.

Filming Permission.

When filming in a location you must make sure you have permission from the owner of the premise or land to film there. As we were filming in my house, I got permission from my parents to allow the house be the location of our filming.

Shot Listing.

Shot 1: Establishing shot of house were party is taking place.
Shot 2: Group shot of everyone walking up the stairs, to show time passing. This will be fast forwarded in the edit suite. There will be several of these faded into each other.
Shot 3: Pan around room showing all the mess and hungover people in the morning.
Shot 4: Close up of main characters face as she wakes up.
Shot 5: Mid shot of main character moving on bed as she wakes up to get off the bed.
Shot 6: Close up of her playing with her head/hair.
Shot 7: Cut away of her being sick in the toilet as she remembers how drunk she got.
Shot 8: Close up of her putting her shoes on and then walking in to the camera so it fades to black
Shot 9: Name of film fades in from the black. This should be before the 2 minutes are up.

All the way through this we will have credits in the corners of the screen.

Story Board.

Scripting and Rehearsing.

Due to the fact our title sequence doesn't involve any dialogue we didn't need to create a script which meant we have decided to not have a rehearsal because everything we need our actors to do is very straight forward.

Health and Safety

Potential danger
Potential outcomes
Actions to avoid potentials outcomes
Leaving the camera box on the floor.
Tripping over the box and causing injury.
Make sure the box is closed and placed out of the way, for example on a table.
Tripping over wires.
This could result in the lighting falling over and breaking as well causing a fire as they get hot. This could cause injury to people around.
Make sure wires are not places where people will be walking and warn everyone around when lights are in use.
Lights getting very hot.Burns to the body.Make sure the lights are off when not in use. When they are on warn everyone and be aware of how hot they get. Allow them to cool down before moving/putting away.
Tripping over tripod.
Resulting in injury especially if there are sharp/big objects around.
Make sure people are aware of the tripod when in use. Not allow anyone near the tripod apart from the directors, Katie and I.
Dropping camera
Camera may break. Lense could shatter, sharp pieces of plastic would be dangerous.
Have camera in tripod when in use and use the hand strap when filming without it. When camera is not in use make sure it is safely stored in the box.
Leaving camera unattended.
This could result in theft.

Make sure one of us is with all equipment at all times.
