Day 2- After our failed attempt on making the opening seen in our chosen location jack, Sam and I went back to re-film the footage we lost. Again we encountered many problems before we even started we had to return to school and pick up a tap which we failed to pick up. We made the location, character, costume and mise en scene, including the pool table to be kept the same. The only difference was that we included an extra actor/ character not originally in the script to make the opening flow more easily and show the audience that the party the night before did have others there. Throughout our filming we tried to keep the continuity flowing as clean as possible this proved difficult because we had to film the same scenes over and over but from different angles. Sam, who played the other character had to remain extremely still in order to not ruin the continuity of the shot unless needed to. We decided to film too sides of the story shown through Sam’s character. A white mask appears, hopefully putting questions to the audience in order to make them more involved, this was all in hope to create a choppy effect when editing. We got this idea from “fight club” when Brad Pitt/ Tyler Derden appears and then disappears from the shot. On the receiving end of this technique we felt that this was a clever a freaky effect, the same effect we hope to create.
We started off filming using a camera which seemed to chew up the tapes. A quick change of camera meant that we could continue, however again only filming with one camera meant that we would have to change the camera angles and re-act the scenes over and over until we felt that we had enough to use and more.
We filmed exactly the same footage however this time we didn’t have my grandparents this time round to star in our film. The second day of filming was after a brainstorm and run trough of the script, all these changes effected what we filmed. The things that we changed were after the opening scene within the pool/ party venue. From there we filmed the first “clone” scene. This was again hard to achieve and unfortunately we weren’t successful when filming, breaking the 180 degree rule and also making us unable to film our clone. This scene took place in my bathroom because of the shower (to make the psycho shower scene) and a mirror in which I was to be reflected in. Outside a window is a landing area which we used to show the character jumping from to escape.
Because we unfortunately were unsuccessful again with the filming of a scene we will re record what we can and use previous footage which we can edit into our film. This is not a loss however we have not filmed what we wanted. We hope to re-film this scene to how we envisioned it and begin to film the dog scene, running scenes and possibly the final scene in order to have more in editing.
