  2. 2. GUIDANC E This template PowerPoint presentation includes all the relevant elements you should cover for a practical project. It is not exhaustive, but provides some guidance on stages, types of planning and documents you should be assembling. This is not a one size fits all document, you will need to amend, rejig and add/subtract sections depending on what you are making. Add more pages to each section where necessary [you should be doing this!] Add visuals as you see necessary. This document will be added to as you progress through the pre-production phase.

  3. 3. TASK 1 Idea Generation and Research
  4. 4. RESEARCH & IDEA GENERATION Use section to track your process of of generating ideas. List and discuss the styles, techniques and conventions that you have identified in your research. Explore how you could approach the project using different methods You can add any extra info you think is relevant, images, mind maps, etc For quick mind maps you could use Make sure you assess the viability of ideas as well as the potential for them creatively.
  5. 5. RESEARCH My research has showed me that a lot of fitness influencers have a different approach with a similar goal. All the sources I’ve looked at aim to teach the viewer and educate them on how to get bigger in the gym. Joe Fazer takes a very direct approach hitting you with lots of facts and figures with interviews and science-based workouts. On the other hand, people like Alex Eubank go for more of a lifestyle approach showing ins and outs of daily life as not only an influencer but a fitness guru. The technical aspect of all these videos focus largely on montage type shots with lots of music and high paced switches between shot to translate the intensity and effort that goes into the gym in video form. In some cases, the lighting a contrast of the videos is tampered with in training montages as it makes the subject look bigger. This technique is used predominantly in Cbum’s videos with hard core training with minimal music. Nearly all the examples I investigated made use of images and text flashing up on screen when going over large phases of talking or explanation. Nathaniel Massiah in his “My Transformation” video did a lot of talking and story telling which would have been boring if it was just him talking so he added training footage and text to the
  6. 6. POTENTIAL APPROACHES My initial approach will be an entertaining twist on a Netflix style documentary mixed with the fast-paced editing of YouTube videos. I want to take a more informative approach for my project as I personally find this kind of video an easier watch with fitness content. People also enjoy seeing challenges in video, so I want to try and push myself for the entertainment of other people and myself.
  7. 7. POTENTIAL TECHNIQUES TO USE A lot of examples I researched used different techniques and came out with very similar results. The more training heavy videos with lots of lifting and minimal editing made use of very high quality and low lighting to make the subject look bigger. The videography focus will be hard to achieve with the equipment I have available, but the use of color correction should make me come out with a higher overall quality. The information filled videos such as Joe Fazer’s content focus on easy-to- understand tips and tricks which are educational to not only a fitness orientated audience. He uses flashing images and text to make the video easy to watch and digest instead of sitting in front of a camera and explaining everything.
  8. 8. CONVENTIONS OF YOUR CHOSEN FORMAT/GENRE YOU ARE WORKING TO Documentaries are meant to be informative and to the point. They’re meant to provide the viewer with information about a topic they didn’t understand before or alternatively (in my case) challenge a topic or subject and document my experiences and learnings in video form to educate an audience about the good and the bad side of the chosen topic.
  9. 9. MOOD BOARD
  10. 10. FINAL IDEA – RATIONALE Why this idea? Why this format? What skills do you have that support this and what are you looking forward to exploring more. For my idea I wanted to do something that I'm passionate about and would have a lot of fun making. I know a considerable amount about fitness as it’s a big hobby of mine outside of college so combining my knowledge and passion, I have the grounds to make a good documentary. I chose to do a documentary as I feel the other options don’t suit to my style as well. With my current knowledge a documentary would just be transferring my knowledge across in a fun and exiting way which was another reason as to why I chose video. Premiere Pro is one of my better skills inside of adobe suite and my research combined with my experience should make this project a fun learning curve.
  11. 11. FINAL IDEA – CREATIVE CONCEPT What do you want to make, reference the look, style and type of project. This could be a synopsis of the piece and some visual reference points. Reference content and the themes you are wanting to explore and resources that might help you to achieve your aims. My aim is to make a fun yet factual documentary challenge video training nothing but arms in the gym for two weeks to see if the nucleus overload training method works and share my overall experience. I want to keep a very professional look by using high quality kit and editing it in ways like a Netflix documentary while also adding elements of humor and light heartedness making use of images, text and editing style.
  12. 12. TASK 2 Pre-production Assessment
  13. 13. INTERVIEW James Ryder – James started his fitness journey recently with a goal of getting stronger and putting on muscle. Before he started training, I asked him specific areas he’d like to get bigger and focus on, of which is answer was arms and shoulders. His answer now partially inspired me for this project so adding context to this project in the form of a direct interview with him makes sense and gives me a good reason to investigate my chosen theory. My interview plans involve using the college studio with a dark background to create a a blank backgrounded set. Getting it done outside of college hours will be very difficult, so I’d like to try and line it up with our free periods so were both available. Drive to survive on Netflix has a similar style and I want to try and recreate that in my own way.
  14. 14. INTERVIEW How long have you been training? Are you happy with your gym progress so far? What areas are your strong and weak points? When you started in the gym, what areas did you want to grow the most? What got you into the gym?
  15. 15. GUIDANCE: PRE-PRODUCTION ASSESSMENT You need to assess the viability of your production and investigate what is required to enable you to make it. Much of this task is hypothetical, which means you will need to investigate standard costings for such a production and apply these to your planned production considering which equipment you would need and resources, etc My project doesn’t require much in excess costings as the only real expense is my gym membership for the month which is already paid. Access to cameras and people will be free as college can provide the equipment on a loan and the people I need are in college and wont need paying. The equipment I’d need would be a camera for my interview segment but other than that I wouldn’t require them any other time as setting up a camera in the gym would be hassle and risk of breaking. Standard costs for generic fitness content is usually low as the focus is on the training rather than anything else.
  16. 16. TITLE OF PRODUCTION/PRODUCTION OUTLINE Summary of intended production: Detail here what you are going to make and the intended outcome and what will be delivered [duration, format[s], etc] Specific outline your intended technical/equipment requirements Include any details that you think [you could use material from a pitch] The Push To Pull I’m going to make a gym documentary on exploring the science of exercising by testing a theory from online. It will consist of not just training footage, but diary segments, flashing images and other generic b-role clips. The interview segment of the documentary is important, so I’ll be interviewing someone I know who just started going to the gym and getting his opinions from a beginner's point of view. I plan on learning how to edit using aftereffects as a lot of the fast-paced montage footage involves effects and transitions unavailable to me when using PremierPro.
  17. 17. LOCATION – RECCE You need to identify locations and plan a recce. What are the limitations and risks, eg distance, access, cost, weather? How will you manage this? I plan to film a lot of footage in puregym Harrogate which when carrying phones and filming could cause a lot of issues. The gym is often very busy at peak time meaning the risk of losing things and equipment breaking is very high. Heavy weights can cause damage to not only machines but myself if I’m not careful so not pushing myself too much is the best approach. The entry is the only fee and that has been paid for in advance. Weather will not be a limiting factor as everything i’ll filming will be inside.
  18. 18. FACILITIES Where will you edit your video? Do you need any other specialist facilities…? I will edit my video on premier pro on my laptop which gives me versatility as to where I can edit it. For filming I don’t need any clearance or special permissions
  19. 19. PROPS/COSTUME/CONSUMAB LES/ETC I made sure that the cost of this project cost little to nothing other than a gym membership to convey the message that all you need to change your life is a gym membership to begin changing your life x Costume and consumables are not necessary as everything is filmed on the day.
  20. 20. TASK 3.1 Creative or Visual Planning
  21. 21. PRE-PRODUCTION: VISUAL PLANNING This section is concerned with the visual/creative planning of your production. This is WHAT you want to make You should use this section to develop what is it going to look/sound like and establish what the visual design is and the desired sequence. It is important that you ‘pre-visualise’ the project before you make it; it will make filming and production a more streamlined process. The following tasks should be part of your visual planning, including:  Pre-visualisation and concept boards  Storyboarding  Shot list  Flat plans  Colour plans
  22. 22. PRE- VISUALISATION/CONCEPT BOARDS Tool for exploring the direction and visuals Provides inspiration and information for the “look & feel” Presents key moments in your video A means to sketch/plan ideas Information on colour/lighting Defining the “mise-en-scene” Include as much here as you like, but keep it relevant to the production, the following slides have been left blank for you to approach in your own way, add more as you need to Extension suggestion: edit a short sequence of clips that have inspired or influenced your video [similar to this: hunger-games-might-be-better-than-the-real-movie]
  24. 24. STRUCTURAL BREAKDOWN/PLANNING Intro – Sets the scene for my project giving a brief background about my personal lifting career and my thoughts regarding certain topics in the gym Interview - Lead original point onto interview with James who proposes the original question Science explanation – talk about the science of the theory and discuss my approach to the challenge Montage – give shots of training with intense music to evidence point Finale – explain the results, if its worth it and my opinions
  26. 26. AUDIO AND OTHER PLANNING Im going to need a mixture of both fast paced intense music but also slow and intriguing background music as I want my video t have a variety of different paces.
  27. 27. TASK 3.2 Organisational Planning
  28. 28. PRODUCTION GROUP INFO Include names, contact info, and defined roles at difference stages of production, using a table is suggested James Ryder – interviewee Jamie Brown - camera operator (interview footage) Greg King – camera operator (gym footage)
  29. 29. RISK ASSESSMENT Risk Assess each separate filming location using the table in the camera H&S PP on Teams kit booking as a starting point. Completing a generic filming assessment would be a start, then you can add specialist/site specific risks as you progress your production Remember, a Risk Assessment is an ongoing document, you should evaluate if anything changes in production and when you put control measures in place You should add the table to each call sheet for each location
  30. 30. RISK ASSESSMENT Risks during production are the highest in priority as damaging kit in a busy working environment is very easy so making sure cameras are safely away from people and out of harms way is a priority. When using heavy weights people can be in trouble as well so to limit that I intend on training safely by not dropping or slamming weights on the floor or near me. The studio has a lot of risks including damage to not only equipment such as lights and the screen but also personnel tripping or falling so to prevent this we will keep all equipment safely distanced and keep everywhere well lit to ensure nobody trips.
  31. 31. CONTINGENCY PLANNING Things go wrong Your contingency plan is there to give you a backup or to minimise the effect on production You should consider the following areas: Technical, Location, Personnel and Organisational areas [about 5 potential issues for each] Use the form in pre-production folder on Blackboard
  32. 32. CONTINGENCY PLAN Technical contingency – in the event phones or cameras stop working other people will be on hand with theirs and can distribute the footage through airdrop or other methods Location contingency – in the event the locations are unavailable (most likely the studio), we will film either in a quiet and well lit area or the studio area of the gym where it is quiet and is lit well. This also poses some benefits as having the interview in a gym setting maybe more beneficial Personnel contingency - personnel should be less of an issue as I can sort nearly everything out myself with the gym side of filming. For my interview, I would have to try and interview another friend who just started which would be harder but would still work.
  33. 33. PRODUCTION SCHEDULE Your schedule should budget a total of 10 hours for production, that is for the filming and editing of your project. You should plan when you’re filming and how you intend to use the in class days on your timetable/class schedule
  34. 34. SCHEDULE Hour 1 – 3 - initial editing to prepare for interview and to create intro sequence to documentary Hour 3 – 4 - Film interview with James in pre agreed time slot Hour 4 – 6. - gym filming time in pre agreed time slots with friends Hour 6 – 10 – editing final shots and pieces together
  35. 35. CLEARANCE AND PERMISSIONS Puregym Harrogate – no permissions needed Home – no permissions needed College studio - need to book out a slot or find available time
