Preliminary Task .

In today's lesson we were told that we were going to film our preliminary task. We got into our groups and came up with ideas, ours included a student who was late for his lesson so we had a pan shot of him arriving to his lesson which then cut to the classroom in which the teacher is teaching, he gets told off and later sits next to his classmate who had been texting urging him to hurry to lesson (this will all be shown in the clip to come) they have a short conversation about why he was late. The camera angles we used for the dialogue was an over the shoulder shot as well as a reverse shot. Hopefully the video will be up by the end of Fridays lesson as we will be editing during the lesson. Photo's to be published soon , Stay posted .... Please comment and leave feedback ....

Early Doors .... Justs Thoughts ...

As always please leave feedbacks and comments !

Peer Feedback .....

After presenting our ideas to other classmates, we received some feedback mostly positive. Our idea of having a montage of a child's life was said to be unique and the effect it would have on the audience help develop emotion etc. There are some issues we may potentially face which involve the child character in our clip and how'd they respond to constant directions, filming the same scene from different angles etc. So we have to consider these factors before we proceed.

Intial Ideas ... Brainstorming

Just a few off the first ideas coming out of the hast from our group as always please leave feedback and comment
