Tuesday 25th October 2012What did we do?• Me, Leanne and Tamara met at Weald College at 10:30am• We went to the green screen room and I did Leanne’s make up for the lip syncing scenes which took 2 hours• We spent the rest of the day until 15:00pm practicing the lip syncing scenes and shooting them until we had the right shotsWhat Went Well?• We managed to get the shots that we needed• The lip syncing was on point and no corrections needed to be made• The make- up looked good on camera and directions were understoodWhat could’ve been done better?• Positioning of the lighting could’ve been more accurate against the green screen• All members of the group could’ve been there
  4. 4. Sunday 4th November 2012What did we do?• All of us met up at harrow hill at 11:00am• We shot the establishing character scenes• We attempted to shoot the attack scene• We took photos as well as videos for the RECCEWhat Went Well?• We shot all we needed to• There was a lot of footage so we had plenty to choose from• All group members were there• We were able to adapt ideas which worked better than the originals• The morning sun looked good against the camera and the shots we needed for the artistWhat could’ve gone better?• It started raining heavily• The traffic was not sympathetic to our needs• Acting skills were not great at first• Shooting the attack scene was not effective nor practical in the setting we had planned• Badly lit alley way• Disruption in some of the shots
