Once starting the preliminary task, it was one of the first times we started to use all the filming equipment. So we were just getting used to the camera and equipment and seeing how it all works. We kept the Camera on the tripod, and just tilted and moved the tripod around.
We all took turns in filming We began by filming a long shot of a person walking towards the door then turning the camera as they got closer to the door. Then we started creating our Match on action by doing a close up of there hand about to open the door and then we moved the camera to the other side of the door and filmed them coming through the door. After that we did a shot of the person walking towards the table to have a conversation with the person already sitting there.
We then did some over the shoulder shots of them having a conversation, mid close-ups. Then to conclude a shot of the person leaving the table finishing with a shot with the other person left at the table.
This was also the first time we were going to be properly using the adobe premiere editing system. It was quite difficult at the beginning understanding how to cut and select and dissolve clips. We all helped each other though. I learnt a lot and I think by editing the preliminary task it will be easier to understand when coming to edit the thriller sequence.
So we cut up all the different shots and parts using the C button on the keyboard. We then made sure the match on action when opening the door was in time. You can select a different shot by pressing the S button on the keyboard. We then put the shot reverse shot part together. And faded it to a finish So by doing this Ive understood the basics of editing
