shooting the first scene went well, the shots we took consisted of; an establishing shot, pan shot (for example when getting changed), close up(to help capture reactions) and a two man shot. we also took a range of 3 second shots to edit and fit together. i feel that this filming experience has helped me and my team understand what is needed and expected to create this short film.
Rough script for the first scene
Tim: she said yes she said yes ( bursts through door)
Dom. Oh … Yeah great mate ( ignoring still playing on xbox)
Tim: I mean I just went up to her and asked. Then she said yes. It was amazing
Dom. Yeah well done mate
Tim. I mean i going to go on a date with Lucy. I can’t believe it
Dom. (pausing the game.) What?
