Thought process…• The locations we choose for our teaser trailer need to be ones in the surrounding area, as none of us want to travel too far. They also need to look like they are from the 19th century, so extra care will need to be taken when it comes to factors such as transport and new buildings, to ensure that all the filming in the trailer looks authentic. Another thing is that when we film the outside of a building we will have to be careful not to get satellite dishes/Sky dishes in the shot. I looked into some locations we could use…
Assessing the situation…• When looking at locations I considered the fact that I live in Masham, Lucinda lives in Gunnerside (near Richmond) and Emily lives in Richmond. As none of us can drive yet it means that we had to consider how far we are willing to travel for the filming process. In the end I looked at surrounding areas such as Bedale, York and Leyburn.

What I will do next…• I will begin to email/phone the appropriate people by getting details from the websites, and then we can narrow down our choices by seeing if the disadvantages outweigh the advantages, as well as seeing what the people I speak to say.
