2nd February 2011

In the lesson on Friday 28th January we filmed some footage of a film opening. We did this so that we could practice using the Mac books before using them to make our final pieces. 

Its the opening of what's probably going to be an action film, although the story could change. In the beginning you saw a girl take a phone call, saying an address. You then see the girl kill someone.

We filmed this opening in class, it took about an hour and a half to plan and film. We used actors and crew members from our class. The opening should be about a minute long. 

In today's lesson we used the Mac books to edit the raw footage. So far it took longer to edit than film. This has shown us how long it would take to edit and film our final piece in scale to this.

Our actor - Olivia

The actress we are using is Olivia. We decided to use her as she's a good actress and fits the part well. Also as she would already be on set it would be easier to use her than relying on someone else. 

We have found a dress for her which is white, and has pleats across the front. This type of dress would have been worn in the era our film is going to be set in. She would be barefoot so we wouldn't need shoes or anything for her. 

We're going to keep the make up natural with foundation and a small amount of mascara. This is because they wouldn't have worn a lot of make up in this time. Her hair is going to be either down with a bow or in ponytails with bows.
