Preparation and Filming - Day 8

Preparation and Filming - Day 8

On Friday the 17th I had to teach a year 8 PE class as part of my sports studies coursework and my group took advantage of this by bringing a tripod and camera to the astro turf and filmed the students during the lesson as we could use this in our title sequence having younger Jack in training. Also, the group filmed a student walking into the changing room acting as younger Jack and this will transition well with the scene of myself walking into the changing room. we will be looking to replicate the transition we added when we had close ups of myself and younger Jack dribbling at goals.

Preparation and Filming - Day 7

Preparation and Filming - Day 7

On Wednesday 15th myself and Kaan went to the drama studio and in the changing room to film a few scenes for our title sequence. Firstly, we went to film myself walking into the changing room with my boots on and then Kallum will go and film his brother (younger Jack) doing the same thing to show the transition of Jack through the ages. In addition, we filmed myself opening my bag and taking out my new stuff from Tottenham as a result of myself signing the contract.

Preparation and Filming - Day 6

Preparation and Filming - Day 6

In preparation for our first screening, myself and Kallum sat in the mac room and was editing our title sequence to ensure our narrative, story and genre are clear to the audience. We had to delete some scenes and remove some titles in order to have the best possible title sequence and as well as that we added some titles and effects to our footage to show the time period of when it was set in. 

Typography and Titles

In this lesson we looked at the order in which titles should appear in our title sequence. We did a task in class where we had to predict the order in which the titles appear, the title  sequence we used was 'Catch Me If You Can'. Here is the order in which the titles should appear in our title sequence;

Typography/Titles

1. Studio name
2. Main star - star power
3. Co-star
4. Title
5. Secondary actors
6. Side characters
7. Casting director
8. Co-Producer
9. Music
10. Costume designer
11. Film editor
12. Director of photography
13. Executive producers
14. Screenplay
15. Director

  • Settings - Title sequence set on the motorway in the city, it is conventional for a city to be the location of an action and adventure film because that is where conflict happens and there is a threat of the civilians' safety.

Preparation and Filming - Day 5

Preparation and Filming - Day 5

On Wednesday 7th of March myself, Kallum and Kaan went to goals in Bexleyheath to film myself in the football scenes of our title sequence and we also filmed Kallum's little brother, who is plays younger Jack in our title sequence. In addition, on Wednesday myself and qualm also filmed the scene of Jack walking into the changing room and siting down with his boots on. We will also film Kallum's little brother (younger Jack) doing this as we will continue to show his progression as he grows up. As myself being in charge of props and costume, I brought the kit in for myself which included a Tottenham shirt, adidas shorts and adidas boots.


            


        

Preparation and Filming - Day 4

Preparation and Filming - Day 4

In addition, on the Friday myself and Kaan re filmed the scene that consisted of me signing the contract. We found a year 10 student who looks similar to Jack and would portray a young Jack well to sign a pretend contract whilst in class. This is to show he aspires to be a footballer and it will show the progression of him when we fade it into the scene of myself signing the contract.
