First Filming Shoot

shooting-schedule

Click the link above to see our groups shooting schedule, this shows our various scenes that were filmed at different times.

On Monday 21st February our group started to film in the centre of Warwick, the damp and wet rainy weather worked to our advantage as it added to the ambiance of our Film Noir setting.

Today we went out to begin filming our opening. We met in Warwick at 12am and then went on from there deciding specifically where to film. We all had idea’s of where would be good to film so we explored the different area’s and finally decided on shooting in a specific street.

Responsibilies:

Tom – Bringing the camera, tripod and gun.

Emily– Bringing woman’s costume, (skirt, heels, coat) and the folder with all the information we needed, (Storyboard, camera shots, props list, script.) I also had to make sure one of our actors were up to date with where to meet etc.

Myself – Bringing the hat and the skateboard.

We managed to get the majority of our filming done in one day, despite the cold, wet weather. As well as Tom agreeing to go home and look at all the footage we shot and decide whether more filming would need to be done.

Improvements:

To save our group time we had to search for the right place to film a couple of us could have gone before the day of shooting to find somewhere to film. This saved us some time as well as us being more prepared. Also I don’t think our group did enough shots of the frames from different angles but to make a final decision on this we would have to look through what film we have got and begin to make up the sequence to see if we need any more. Also I think that we should have took it in turns more to practise using the camera because I don’t think it was shared out fairly.

The first location is a small building/apartment of where our main female character walks out, she is seen clutching her jacket tightly to her body while she is wearing a shirt and tights with black stileto heels to emulate the feeling of the Film Noir category.

 The image above shows the female character walking out of the building, clutching her coat tightly as she tries to keep her actions to herself. While the other picture shows her back as she walk up the street.

The female character carries on walking down towards this alleyway still clutching onto her coat as she feels nervous where she will be met with her stalker, at the end of the alley. While the stalker waits leaning against a wall for his victim to appear 

 The female victim appears out from the alleyway where she is stunned by the apperance of  the stalker who continuosly watches her as she walks up the road. 

  

As she continues to walk up the street the stalker carries on to follow her which can be seen within the photo as she is oblivious to his presence, as he becomes increasingly closer and closer towards her. While the camera has a medium close up of her face as she continues to walk down the street.

      The camera also changes to a POV shot from the stalker as they continue to walk up the street

The female victims footsteps become faster and quicker as she starts to hear the other footsteps as do the stalkers feet as he starts to follow her up the same street. The camera changes to a low angle shot as it follows the pace of their footsteps become increasingly faster.

   

The victim suddenly looks behind her to see the stalker following her which causes her to start running as the stalker speeds up as she carries on to run

     

She carries on running down another alleyway further up the street where she cuts down to escape from him. He catches up with her down the alleyway grabbing her arm, before there is a slight struggle with him before she hits his hat off which has so far covered his identity. Which the young woman vicitm recognises and her face is in shock to see someone that she knows commiting such a crime. There is a slight bused staring  before she kicks him and runs off down the alleyway.

    

 After she has started to run the stalker pulls out a gun from his coat aiming it up the alleyway in her direction. Before eventually pulling the trigger, in the lenses of the camera as if the audience are the victim being shot.

     

We had the stalker point the gun at the camera lense as it would produce the feeling that we are the vitim as the screen produces a dark black screen to add the feel that the audience had just been shot. After this black screen the credits before changing to the next scene. Within the images below, you can see how we angles the camera to have the gun pointing at the camera to give the feel thats it the audience that has been shot.
