This was the first video we filmed after just learning about how to use the camera and how to use the programs FCP, SoundTrack Pro and Livetype.
In the prelim, the titles did NOT follow convention as we hadn't done the research. We had 'directed and produced by d.e.m.s. first and then had the title of the film at 23 seconds.
MISE EN SCENE
In our prelim, we decided to use such props as fake blood, vampire teeth, tesco bag and black and yellow tape. Even though it was our first time filming I think that all of the mise en scene worked well together.
Different shots GOOD & BAD
- the first shot looked good at first but I think that showing my college pass was a bright idea.
- the second and third shot look a little dark
- I really liked the 4th shot, but looking back I think there is too much space at the side
- the last shot is blocking Mariama's head.
FINAL FILM ENTITLED 'THE CYCLE'
When we were editing the cycle we had done a lot of research and so we knew how to do the conventional title order and so we made sure it was done exactly right in our film opening.
MISE EN SCENE
As this was our final film, we wanted to have the best location.
We filmed at South bank for the London Eye and Big Ben shots, which is where we spent most time filming and then at Elias' and Demi's houses to film the nightmare shots and the shopping shots. We also filmed the 'flashback' shots in a park near the college. The props we used were a flower, a map, fake blood,tesco bags...
