Final Filming

January 21, 2011

By Gabi Paterson (69559/3754)

We recently completed filming the last few scenes that were required to complete a rough cut of our film. Our group now has all of the shots necessary to complete our final film. We’ve created a rough cut to show to the class which we will recieve feedback on. This will be really helpful for us because the people in our class are from the age range of our target audience. Hopefully they can give us borth positive feedback and constructive criticism which will allow us to make the best trailer possible.

9th December:

Today our group are going to have our final filming session. This is the last session of filming that we are able to do before the end of this term as one of our actors, Pheobe is leaving on Thursday and the school term ends next week. Hopefully we will be able to complete all of the filming that will be necessary to create our trailer and can concentrate on editing and completing our trailer!

10th December:

The shots that we took yesterday were good and our group have enough footage to complete our trailer. We are going to edit it all together in today and tomorrow’s lesson so that we can export our film so far and post it on this blog to show our progress so far.

Filming Sessions

December 3, 2010

In the past few weeks we went out four times to get the first shots done. As we mentioned before, we decided to change our storyline from summer to winter, as we are filming now, and we have very heavy snow in Scotland right now. Our story works really well with that. The first two sessions, there was no snow, so different shots with different amouts of now also point out the time that passed by in the story. Here are some screenshots of the shots we took:

We filmed the scene on which James and Simon meet Gabi, the scene where they are friends and take the picture of them, which gets folded back later. We also filmed shots of James and Simon being friends, and a lot of establishing shots of the same house in different times, so we can illustrate the snow-effect in that.

On Sunday we got our cast together and had our first day of filming. We got quite a lot of our filming done and are all confident that we will get it done in time for the deadline. Our actors were really confident and helpful while filming and we are all looking forward to creating a quality trailer. Following are some pictures of James and I filming as Simon was acting in many of these scenes.
