Camera Booking

Today I booked the HD camera and reflective board to take out tomorrow (20/12/12) in order to film over the christmas holidays. Then to return the equipment and with my footage on the 7/1/13


This is my animatic, I wanted to keep it as simple as I can to hide the disjunction behind it, the strobe effect along with an inverted image over the top to go along with the idea of my digipack having negative images.

Example of opening

The opening sequence to this video by Die Antwoord shows a variety of people looking wild, blank, dangerous and psychotic. I plan to mimic this opening in my own video while the beat is slower and slowly coming in, this will create a enticing opening for the audience to continue watching.

Yesterday I went to various locations that I had in mind to use, just to check access and how realistic and effective they would appear, Out of the 4 places I went to, two of them are perfect, 1 of them i've decided not to use entirely and the other one I would use say for example one of the other's gets flooded.

Editorial Effects Practise

I spent an hour or two practising on Adobe Premier Pro with the visual effects in order to get a more in depth understanding of how capable this software is for my concepts, which must be a disjunctive visual montage of meaning. These 3 examples are too show the prolonging effects of 'Bezier', 'Linear' and 'Hold' on a number of pre-set effects, such as lightning, posterize and lens flare, which has worked very well. I intend to further experiment with Premier Pro and hopefully grasp some of the harder editing capabilities it withholds.

Cast & Props

My cast only involves one main person; Tom. He will be the lead role and the focus of my video, other people will feature mainly as props and typical narrative characters,
These people will represent normal problems a working class person faces in life. e.g. illness, debt, abuse & depression.
Another main prop I will use is black and white face paint, I will paint Tom's face a lot like a skull/dead person.
