lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll Inspirations Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989) Two seemingly dumb teens struggle to prepare a historical presentation with the help of a time machine. This great film inspired us to make our time travel adventure film to have some humour as it keeps younger viewers interested, as it certainly entertained us as children. Back to the Future (1985) In 1985, Doc Brown invents time travel; in 1955, Marty McFly accidentally prevents his parents from meeting, putting his own existence at stake. This legendary movie is a classic. For us it will always be one of the first movies we think of when we hear, ‘time travel’. Its a great adventure for everyone, not being particularly aimed at a certain target audiences, it pleases people of all ages and gender.
lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll Inspirations Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) Four guy friends, all of them bored with their adult lives, travel back to their respective 80s heydays thanks to a time-bending hot tub. This movie hit the cinemas in 2010 and managed to bring something new to the time travel film genre . It has fresh , laugh out loud, humour, with funny and interesting characters The Breakfast Club (1985) Five high school students, all different stereotypes, meet in detention, where they pour their hearts out to each other, and discover how they have a lot more in common than they thought. This film is amazing and shows how stereotypes, all though completely different from one another can mix and bond the greatest of friendships.
We wanted our first shot to be set in a history class, as the subject is all about dates and different events in time and would fit our genre of time travel very well. We chose the cleaners cupboard opposite the vending machines as our main star of the show, the time machine. We believed this to be a mysterious place within the school where no one really knows about and could be become an icon just like the ‘Back to the Future’ time machine in the form of a DeLorean or the Police box or, Tardis, in ‘Doctor Who’ . Other settings we were planning on using for our film was the school playground to capture shots from other areas of a modern school environment, including corridors and hall ways. Settings
Theme Here are some font design we found and created using our chosen title – ‘Dude, when are we?’ This title sequence will most likely be used in our video at the very end, after the characters take their walk to get away from their present life..
We selected some actors from our group of friends who we thought would be suitable to play certain characters. We then selected some Year 7 actors to play the same characters at a younger age. We chose four boys who we thought could play the same four characters, at a younger age. We have planned to film our first shot in a year 7 lesson. We arranged the classroom of students to come to school prepared and equipped with their own clothes so we can shoot the scene. We wanted them in their own clothes so it would be easier to identify each of their personalities – One being the nerd, the athlete, the wimp and the normal guy. So when you see their older parts later on in the film, they will be recognisable as the same characters. We have also arranged to film the classroom of students with a teacher, who has a free period at the time, and will pretend to teach the class a lesson while we record the classroom scene. Cast
<ul><li>Jake </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Mr Wilson...Mr, Mr Wilson...He always used the ramble on about significant dates like 1066...I could give him 10,066 reasons why I want to punch him in the nose!...History class was never my favourite subject...i spent more time thinking about the class hottie, jenny more than I focused on the teacher or the board... My names Jake by the way, Jake Martin’. </li></ul><ul><li>‘ This isn’t the first time we travelled together…it’s just the most significant for us as a group, and as good a place as any to start…’ </li></ul><ul><li>‘ These are my friends.’ </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Behind me is Eugene, the class brain...the reason we are all getting A’s in maths...Then there Thomas..lets just say he’s not the most confident of people...Lastly is Mike, the athlete. He plays football and rugby and tennis..and cricket..and baseball..and he’s at the gym 24/7..oh! And he plays cricket..and does abit of ballet on the weekend..’ </li></ul><ul><li>‘ I went for the usual, BF, 80p, strawberry milkshake..’ </li></ul>Narration
<ul><li>Non-diegetic sounds: </li></ul><ul><li>Huey Lewis and The News – Back in Time </li></ul><ul><li>Huey Lewis and The News – Power of Love </li></ul><ul><li>Wheatus – Teenage Dirtbag </li></ul><ul><li>Red Hot Chili Peppers – Can’t Stop </li></ul><ul><li>Usher – Yeah </li></ul><ul><li>Jay Z – 99 Problems </li></ul><ul><li>Wiz Khalifa – Black and Yellow </li></ul>Sound We all thought alot about the variety of music out ther that we could use for our media production and eventually decided to go with ‘Can’t Stop’ by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. We believe this song will fitt our video because it had a good rythm for the scene where the doors fling open and the characters are revealed for the first time at their teenage appearance and fitted the time period. We also wish to have the non-diegetic sound of our main character Jake, narrating, talking about his boring teacher, his fellow class mates and strawberry milkshakes. <ul><li>Diegetic sounds: </li></ul><ul><li>Most of our video will consist of non-diegetic sounds but of course we will include some diegetic sounds such as the dialogue and footsteps when the characters are walking. </li></ul>
