  • 16. Mise en Scene
    Typical location for an Action Adventure is somewhere Exotic
    Since we were unable to fly to anywhere exotic we had to research local places for our film. We thought that Reigate Castle was an interesting location. The tunnel proved an excellent setting for our chase sequence.
  • 17. Characters
    Since we don’t have professional actors we all acted in different scenes. The girls did most of the filming as our Opening is predominantly male.
    In order to fit with the genre style I chose to wear a suit, which is more in keeping with other James Bond style action adventure films.
    Suit, shirt,& tie
  • 18. Synopsis
