Day 3 (2nd January 2016)

We set a time to meet up which was 4pm, we planned the locations and shots that we needed to take in order for recording to go smoothly. We arrived at tate modern and immediately began recording our scenes. The first Scene we recorded was when the two brother meet up at Tate Modern.

Action needed for next week is to finish recording the pieces that we need in order for the trailer to flow fluently with each other, we also had to get our paperwork organised and signed, once those two task are completed we can put everything together to make our final.

Day 4 (11th Janurary 2017)

Myself and the group decided to meet up and reviewed all the footage we had taken and chose which files we wanted in the trailer

In terms of my contribution I personally feel as if I was urging the crew to go forward, I took part in acting as well as helping with lighting in and out of scenes. The team worked very well together we helped each other by always giving each other constant feedback so we could better ourselves and the trailer.

We took various days out of the week to review our progress and problems. We did encounter a few problems such as temperature, days to record on and power sources, we had to find ways to work around these problems, we ended up bring more batteries so we can record for longer and moved our meet-ups to later dates.

Evidence of filming



We used Sony Vegas Pro 11 to carry out our editing, we arranged to have the audio match the footage, the audio was then cut and faded in and out to make it seem natural to the audience.full-project-02

We then added colour correction to the footage.mbl-contrast

After we was done using colour correction on the clips, scenic audio files were then added such as police sirens, we also added our voice overs we recorded in classsound-edit-ss sound-edit-ss-02
