Film production

  1. 1. Jessica White<br />Film Production<br />
  2. 2. Burns Road, Moxley, WS10: 07/12/2010<br />
  3. 3. As organised, filming had been set to take place on 07/12/2010. As the director, I had to arrange and position cast members to their roles. Unfortunately, I had lost my voice, meaning that communication levels were poor. Rather than cancel filming and rearrange to a later date, I decided it would be best to continue with the help from another actor.<br />Issues Faced When Filming<br />
  4. 4. This shot involved a pan. Although, in the storyboard itself, the pan is cut in two, enabling more shots to be used and the pan to be much quicker.<br />
  5. 5. For this shot, I used the rule of thirds, allowing footage to look professional. In the second image, only one character remains on the line of thirds, going against the conventions.<br />
  6. 6. Again, I used the rule of thirds in this shot, allowing footage to look appropriate.<br />
  7. 7. Here, I used an over the shoulder shot. One character is always on the line of thirds, making it professional.<br />
  8. 8. This shot involved dialogue, therefore I wanted to use the actor in the centre of the screenso that the audience could fully concentrate on the appearance of the character rather than the surroundings.<br />
  9. 9. Here, I positioned the character on the rule of thirds so that the surroundings can be noticed, just as much as the actor.I decided to use a close up of the reaction on the actors face as well as the state of clothing.<br />
  10. 10. Lansdowne Road, Bilston, WV14: 30/12/2010<br />
  11. 11. In this shot, I positioned the camera in the centre, meaning that both characters were able to be seen as they were each on the line of thirds. This made the scene professional.<br />
  12. 12. I changed the camera angle so that the audience can view the comedy within this scene. The rule of thirds is used again, enabling the shot to look appropriate.<br />
  13. 13. Again, the camera is positioned on the line of thirds, allowing the audience to view the actor, who is in on mid shot.<br />
  14. 14. Here, the car had been positioned on a driveway with the front wheel pointing in a different direction, giving the impression that the car has just pulled in, perhaps after a date. It too has been positioned on the line of thirds.<br />
  15. 15. This shot purposely cuts off the actors head so that the identity can be established later on. However, the mise-en-scene is particularly important as it gives the personality of the character. For example, wine indicates that this character has a high, expensive taste.<br />
  16. 16. To establish who the actor is, I changed the position of the camera at a mid shot of the actor.<br />
  17. 17. The actor has been positioned on the line of thirds so that environment can be recognised as the same.<br />
  18. 18. Here, I used an over the shoulder shot, on the line of thirds. The reflection of the actor is also on the line of thirds, enabling the audience relate to the character.Issues Faced:When filming with reflections, the camera can easily be recognised in shot, taking away the sense of realism.<br />
  19. 19. To establish this character, i used this creative shot through a bookcase. <br />
  20. 20. Victoria Rd, Wednesbury, WS10: 11/02/201<br />
  21. 21. Here I used a low angle shot whilst still using the line of thirds.For this shot, I wanted to use a close up of the actors reaction towards the comedy.<br />
  22. 22. This shot involved dialogue, I used an over the shoulder shot to establish that the actors are talking to one another.<br />
  23. 23. These shots each involved dialogue, so I wanted to use the line of thirds in all of them. However, due to unlevelled ground, these shots look unprofessional. Though they don’t match, it adds more of a comical element. Also, it allows the audience to focus more on the characters, making their lines seem much funnier.<br />
  24. 24. Though the audience is unable to see who this actor is, the rule of thirds is still followed.The close up of the book being placed down could give an indication to the audience who the character is.<br />
  25. 25. Though this shot was moving, I had to ensure that both characters remained in shot as well as on the line of thirdsIssues Faced:The lighting from the sky<br />
  26. 26. The path is positioned at an angle so the location looks bigger. I positioned the actress on the line of thirds so that the shot can remain professional. The size differences between the actress and the location also adds comedy.<br />
  27. 27. Here, it could be noted that the ending of the film is being given away but, it adds a comical element due to the circumstances being awkward.<br />
  28. 28. This shot is positioned on the line of thirds, both characters are fully in shot, enabling the audience to recognise them. This shot also adds comedy towards the film, making it relate to the genre.<br />
  29. 29. For this shot, I decided to use a close up with a dark background. This makes the area look remote, adding more of a comical element.<br />
