  • 4. L.I.A.R.
  • 5. The ‘Pitch’: All movies start with ‘an idea’.
  • 6. Your ‘package’ to present to the financiers:
    • Pitch (verbal)
    • Treatment (summary of film, written in prose like a story)
    • Genre
    • Possible stars and why suitable

  • 8. Budgets:
    • Average Hollywood film budget now up to $63m
    • Effects heavy films regularly top $240m (Spiderman 3, Transformers)
    • Everything comes at a price (locations, equipment, catering, etc…)
    • Star salaries now huge (now over $20m)
  • 9. Task:
    • To film a very short ‘showreel’
    • This will be a 1-2 minute sequence from your film (the idea you have ‘pitched’ to us)
    • You will edit this ‘in camera’
    • You will show this to us next week, P3
    • You will provide a brief verbal commentary explaining what you were trying to achieve
    • This is mainly to get you used to using the DV camera in a careful, controlled way
  • 10. Continuity editing:
    • Audience focuses on the story and characters, not the edits
    • Main conventions were established in Hollywood in the early 20 th Century
    • The most important one is the 180 degree line…
  • 11.  
  • 12. Now:
    • During this period, you will be showing us your film sequence or ‘showreel’
    • You will need to provide a brief commentary as we watch it, explaining what you were trying to achieve
    • Remember, the main objective was to effectively edit ‘in camera’ so the sequence seems continuous and makes sense to the viewer…
  • 13. Treatment:
    • Prose outline of your film
    • Essential and important story events
    • You will try and describe the opening (and possibly other key moments) in detail
    • It should read like a ‘story’, but in present tense using phrases like ‘we see’ and ‘we hear’…
    • The next step would be an ‘original draft treatment’ and then a full screenplay
  • 14.  
  • 15. ‘Halloween 7’
  • 16.  
  • 17. Treatment:
    • Prose outline of your film (more detail than a pitch)
    • Essential and important story events
    • You will try and describe the opening (and possibly other key moments) in detail
    • It should read like a ‘story’, but in present tense using phrases like ‘we see’ and ‘we hear’…
    • You should be working on this, and you will then be called to show your ‘showreel’…
    Try and keep it to about 1 ½ pages of your green books.
  • 18. Period 4: Planning for your ‘filming challenge’…
  • 19. Storyboards:
    • You will be learning more about these in a later lesson
    • However, we want you to sketch some of these to help with your filming during Period 5
    • Look at this example….
  • 20.  
  • 21.  
  • 22. The 2 film challenges:
    • A sequence where 2 characters talk to each other whilst standing up
    • Match the ‘eyelines’
    • Don’t cross the 180 degree line
    • Show reactions as well as what is said
    • A sequence where 1 character follows another without him/her knowing, and then surprises him/her
    • Match the ‘eyelines’
    • Be careful of the 180 degree line (it will move!)
    • Make sure the viewer knows who is where and what the physical space between them is
  • 23. Period 5: Take your storyboards, on clipboards, and the DV camera and film your sequence…
