Yesterday I filmed the first scene for my Drama Tangerine Dream.
Filming took place in the skate park in Stafford and was filmed completely on my Canon D600 DSLR with shotgun mic.
Filming took about an hour to get all of the shots i needed.
Production pictures to follow.
Today i met with a new client The Shave Doctor.
The Shave Doctor is a brand that make various shaving products.
After meeting with the owner of the company we have decided on 3 – 7 videos at 45 seconds to 1 minute long.
I will be meeting the client again next Wednesday to finalize the idea and set a filming date.
Today i have compiled all of the pre production i need for my Drama unit into one folder to see what i have and what i need to do.
Ongoing things such as Production Diary will be completed as an when things are completed and moving forwards.
So far i have completed: My production notes, treatment, pitch, location recce, cast & crew list, Schedule, script, shot list, shooting script and skills development plan.
Ongoing items consist of: risk assessments, Production diary and Evaluation.
Having a quick edit today on the Staffordshire Hoard Project.
piecing together things on the time line and adding transitions as well as colour correcting which can be seen n the screen shots below.
As you can see the original was too blue in colour and dark due to the coloured lights in the museum where it was filmed
The second shot is of it colour corrected and as you can see i have lightened it as well as increasing the red to make it more vibrant.
OK so the other day i was testing this remote tripod head which allows you to tilt and pan smoothly while filming.
Below is a compilation of the footage i got while using the tripod head.
Today i tested out a remote rotating tripod head which i have borrowed off someone.
i used it to capture clouds and to do pans and tilts with in my back garden.
Its a piece of equipment that i have not thought about using before and wanted to try out to see if i think it would be worth investing in, in the future. which i know think that it probably is.
The head pans smoothly and can even pan and tilt at the same time which is a nice effect. i think it would be good to use for and establishing shot where the whole location does not warrant cramming everything in the same shot.
i also think that it would be good for reveal shots where you reveal more to the scene than the initial shot. and obviously it is useful for normal panning and tilting shots.
I will be uploading footage from my tests soon.
Below is a picture of the tripod head itself.
