  1. 1. St. Paul’s Catholic College Unit G324: Advanced Portfolio in Media (Old) Location Open Door Church Open door Church Centre Green Street Sunbury TW16 6QQ A long establishing shot of the front of the church; this will be the main location as the ‘wedding’, which spans most of the trailer. The red doors will be a main focus of ours as it will be a POV shot that introduces the bride to the setting. The red door ‘signifies’ (De Saussure) love and passion, which is expected of a wedding, so is very appropriate however later on in the trailer we can see that it is not a happy wedding, changing the original connotations of the church doors to perhaps hate.The cars in front of the church reinforce the idea that our characters are working class and so is our target audience which will help them ‘personally identify ‘ (Katz) with the characters on screen. With the door only having one handle, it gives the sense that entering this church is a one way street; there’s no turning back after marriage; it is not easily broken. In addition the handle is also gold, which represents luxury and wealth the complete binary opposites (Strauss) to what a church is meant to symbolise. The curtains behind the church will be used to conceal the bride as each body part emerges, it will also make the point of view shot very interesting.
  2. 2. St. Paul’s Catholic College Unit G324: Advanced Portfolio in Media Back Front Inside of the church The inside of the church will be filled with red chairs, in rows symbolising unity and continuity which is what a marriage should be like; forever, it is also an expected convention at a wedding which we have ‘repeated’ (Steve Neale) to make the idea of the wedding very obvious. The stain glass windows at the back lets in natural light and the celling lights will allows us to have top lighting on the charactersto accentuate their “goodness” in an ironic twist. The ‘exist’ sign on the door of church is also a nice touch because any shots focused on it will suggest that this marriage is something that they should escape from. The Reception After the wedding the reception, will take place in a hall close to the church. The children’s decorations on the wall are very effective; because when we have cutaway shots to the surroundings the wedding will seem very amateur and childish. This is what we will be trying to achieve because the wedding is not meant to be ‘posh’ but instead a mockery of what a wedding should be like. Tables will be set within the hall with the characters placed in certain areas to connote their status or their relationship between each other. For example the groom and bride at the top table and the groom further down but closer to the bride to showhis lower status and hidden relationship with the bride.
  3. 3. St. Paul’s Catholic College Unit G324: Advanced Portfolio in Media (Old) Location Due to circumstances out of our hands, the first Location cannot be used due to time restrictions. As a group we then changed locations to our plan B, which is church much closer and local to our college. However even St. Ignatius, turned out to be a no, as it would be closed during the time of filming. Although the manning room will still be used for the reception. St Ignatius Catholic Rectory, Green Street, Sunbury-on-Thames, TW16 6QB. St.Ignatius in comparison to the Open door church is very old, and has a rustic look and age that can’t be made. It is in complete binary opposition to the wedding which will be unlike the old traditional weddings as it is a shotgun wedding with no trimmings. This binary opposition (Strauss) creates this overall feeling within the viewers that the wedding is wrong or fake because of the complete difference between setting and characters. The light fixture above the door could if lit be very effective in the opening establishes shot, as the bride waits below it, almost bathing her in light. The light could give the impression that she is holy and pure just as a bride is meant to be. However as a
  4. 4. St. Paul’s Catholic College Unit G324: Advanced Portfolio in Media team we decided to keep the light un-lit to further emphasize that she is in fact not holy, as she committed a form of adultery, by sleeping with the best man when committed to another. The lack of light could also connote in a religious sense the lack of God’s approval and the lack of a ‘bright’ future. Aerial view/High angle looking down. The location was really helpful in allowing a range of shots. The upper level holds an old organ, which will be perfect for cutawayshots, that emphasise the difference between setting and characters. Hopefully these shots will depict how the characters don’t belong in Thesuch a location. long so can church pews are house many guests, but since the wedding is a quick job, the quests will be few, so the pews will be empty. This will once again stress the idea that the characters are very different to the norm. Also it will denote how their wedding is not socially accepted. The pillars on the other hand will be used during tracking shots to break up the frame adding the idea that the wedding will break.

  5. 5. St. Paul’s Catholic College Unit G324: Advanced Portfolio in Media St Mary’s Church, Sunbury on Thames After a lot of searching of churches, we finally received a definite yes from St. Marys, so this church will be used for the actual wedding and St. Ignatius will only be used for its manning room at the back, to hold our small reception. The church is beautifully structured with a bell tower that is very traditional to churches but is hard to find these days. It is situated near the River Thames and has a graveyard out back. This leaves alot of options open for different shots that were not planned. The river can give the trailer a more joyful look and the graveyard can give it a deathly feel- as if she signed her death not her marriage. The interior is also very beautiful with stain glass windows, statues and paintings that surround it, when edited the church could be made to look very ethereal or dark. It also has an upper level, which we hope to use for our high-level angle shots.
