  • FILMING OUR PLAY: WHAT TO THINK ABOUT
  • Advance thinking

    1. 1. OVERALL OBJECTIVES: <ul><li>1 To produce your group’s trailer on film </li></ul><ul><li>2 To target the core audience effectively </li></ul><ul><li>3 To promote your new series </li></ul><ul><li>3 aims : </li></ul><ul><li>AIM 1 : To ensure sound and vision is clear so it makes sense to the audience </li></ul><ul><li>AIM 2 : To complete your filming and editing in the time available </li></ul><ul><li>AIM 3 : To avoid mistakes in order to minimise the need for re-shooting </li></ul>
    2. 2. POTENTIAL LIMITATIONS? <ul><li>Budget </li></ul><ul><li>Time constraints </li></ul><ul><li>Backdrops/ mise-en-scene </li></ul><ul><li>Lighting </li></ul><ul><li>Music </li></ul><ul><li>Only 1 camera and tripod per group </li></ul>
    3. 3. What could go wrong? <ul><li>Footage too dark </li></ul><ul><li>Poor sound – echoes/ background noise </li></ul><ul><li>Poor framing – can’t see action/ action too far away/ action too close/ heads chopped off/ too much space in frame </li></ul><ul><li>Cutting off start or finish of scene </li></ul><ul><li>Taking too long/ aiming for perfection/ over-ambition </li></ul><ul><li>Breaking H+S rules/ equipment gets damaged </li></ul><ul><li>Self-conscious acting </li></ul><ul><li>Arguments in group/ not sharing the tasks/ people taking over/ people getting upset. </li></ul>
    4. 4. What needs to be done in advance? <ul><li>Thorough rehearsal </li></ul><ul><li>Organisation of props/ set/ costumes/ music (if needed) </li></ul><ul><li>Learn lines and actions </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the limitations of the project </li></ul><ul><li>Familiarise with the equipment </li></ul><ul><li>Understand health and safety issues </li></ul><ul><li>Permissions all granted </li></ul><ul><li>Practice acting to camera </li></ul>
    5. 5. Issues to consider – technical <ul><li>Where will you place the camera and tripod? </li></ul><ul><li>Lighting – can you see the action clearly </li></ul><ul><li>Shot composition – rule of thirds, avoid obvious gaps, careful framing of actors </li></ul><ul><li>Shot movement – keep it slow and steady </li></ul><ul><li>Organising the filming – who does what </li></ul><ul><li>Consideration of the back/foreground </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid rewinding/ recording over previously shot footage </li></ul><ul><li>Interference with sound – wind, cars etc </li></ul>
    6. 6. Issues to consider – acting <ul><li>Don’t allow camera to put you off </li></ul><ul><li>Speak as if on stage – clear, slowed down, louder than normal, direct your speech at camera </li></ul><ul><li>Actor positioning – stay close to each other – spaces on camera look much bigger </li></ul><ul><li>Face camera as much as possible </li></ul><ul><li>Complete the scene or conversation even if something goes wrong – don’t stop </li></ul>
    7. 7. What can be tested on a ‘test shoot’? <ul><li>Equipment </li></ul><ul><li>Your technical skills </li></ul><ul><li>Location and backdrops </li></ul><ul><li>Lighting </li></ul><ul><li>Framing </li></ul><ul><li>Script </li></ul><ul><li>Action </li></ul><ul><li>Costume and props </li></ul>
