Media Project - Short Film Presentation

  1. 1. Media Project<br />Short Chase Scene<br />Shaun Liddle<br />
  2. 2. Plot<br />The initial idea for the short chase film was for someone to know something that they shouldn’t. <br />The male actor in the film tries to threaten the girl with a text, however she doesn’t take it seriously until she is actually chased.<br />Eventually it leads to a chase scene where the female actor is caught by the male actor.<br />
  3. 3. Filming Process<br />Limited areas for filming resulted in our group filming around the school.<br />However this was not a problem as the initial plot was for the actors to be in school at the time of the chase scene.<br />Where we filmed: <br />Shared learning<br />English Block<br />Yard <br />We decided to film in these places to make it look as if the chase was action packed, rather than just filming in one area.<br />
  4. 4. Shot Types<br />We started off with a text clip to give the audience a view of the storyline.<br />The next clip shows the camera pan as the actress walks into the shot. This clip establishes who are the main characters in the short film.<br />
  5. 5. Shot Types<br />Close up of the mobile phone showing that the male actor is getting phone calls off the victim.<br />Another text clip showing what the short film will conclude in.<br />
  6. 6. Shot Types<br />Close up of the threat, which projects the whole storyline. <br />Medium shot of girl receiving the text, but not taking the text seriously.<br />
  7. 7. Shot Types<br />As the short film continues it shows the female actor running up the stairs, because she's getting chased.<br />As it continues with the camera in the same position, we then see the male actor chasing the female actor in a long shot.<br />
  8. 8. Shot Types<br />The next long shot shows the girl consciously looking behind her, giving the vital impression she is being followed.<br />Eventually the short film concludes in the girl getting caught by the boy in a medium long shot.<br />
  9. 9. Effects <br />Firstly we decided to put the short film in black and white to add effect.<br />The edits used are mostly of black fades, however during the stair scene a crossfade is used to show how close the boy is to catching the girl.<br />
  10. 10. Strengths & Weaknesses <br />Weaknesses<br />Editing. We found this part quite difficult however as we started to progress in the task it got easier.<br />Camera angles and movements – some of the shots were quite weak, however this gives us time to improve on our actual project. <br />Strengths <br />We came up with a storyline fairly quickly.<br />We knew the right places to film and how to plan it out when filming.<br />We kept within the time limit given which was under 1 minute. <br />We also managed to film and edit the film in the time we were given to do so.<br />
  11. 11. What we learned…<br />Throughout the filming of the short film scene we learned how to use the moving image cameras, which will help us for our moving image coursework piece.<br />As we have never used these cameras before it was quite a difficult task at first, however as time progressed they got easier to use.<br />We also learned how to use different camera angles and movements to create tension.<br />Other things we learned was how to edit the videos on iMovie, this resulted in adding certain effects such as black and white and black fades to replace the cuts.<br />
  12. 12. Advanced Production<br />In order to be successful in advanced production we need to plan and research in full detail referring to our target audience, actors and digital technology.<br />We also need to use edits, camera angles and movements appropriately paying close attention to mise-en-scene.<br />We must produce print work being aware of conventions of layout and page design and using our photography skills appropriately using effects to highlight mise-en-scene. <br />
