ORGANISATION OF PROPS AND EQUIPMENTI will prepare my equipment the night before filming. I will do this because Iwon’t be in a rush in the morning organising things. Items I will be bringing from home are a guitar for my lead singer to play which I already have at home so that doesn’t need to be arranged. I will also be bringing my own camera so that will need charging over night ready for filming the next day.
HOW TO USE THE EQUIPMENTTo use filming using my dslr camera you need to turn it on. Once turned on image one will appear on the screen. You need to press ‘shoot’. Once you have pressedthe ‘shoot’ you need to flick the toggle right which in image 2 which then changes the camera from camera mode to movie mode. Once changed to movie mode press the red button to start filming and again to stop filming.
BACK UP PLAN As my music video is mostly going to be filmed outside I have to consider a back up plan in case it rains. If it does rain my back up plan is to film inside. I wasthinking about filming at the café I was planning to film part of my music video anyway. If this back up plandoes happen I will have to acquire permission to film my music video there.
