On day two we went to the next location to film our park scene, we had a choice touse a jump cut for the overall results between the subway and the park scene linkingthem both together as we thought we was shooting things in the right order butwhen we got to Raphaels park the subway tunnel scene did not link with the parkscene. Me and Laura was aware of another location at Harold woodWhich was a Crooked looking bridge which would go perfectly well for oursequence, hence we decided to use it. The editor was made aware that she wouldneed to put the bridge scene first as it linked with the subway scene.On arriving at Raphaels park the weather was cruel, as it started to rain, howeverwe decided to shoot Exterior extreme shot and long shot angles. Also the actress wasvery corporative, when I would direct her in terms of the types of facial expressionsto make, and also for the long shot we had to shoot it from far, so she was runningfor a very lengthy time, and we had to repeat the same running scene three to fourtimes because either she was carrying the bag the wrong way round, or somethingelse like sounds was interfering with the continuity of the filming. We filmed at thepark location very quickly because the weather continuously changed. Hence we haddecided to come back another day, to shoot the close ups and to implement theshots on our storyboard.
th March PM
We went to our third location, which was the bridge scene. This location was how Iimagined as it was very alluring. My plan for this location was different to oursequence analysis I wanted to have the protagonists (Emma Worby) running pass thebridge and as she is , an unknown actor portrayed as a stranger almost who runs herover which would create a gratifying tension, then the character would come outand ask if she was okay, and she would had shrugged him off by saying get off me ,this was the scene where a diegetic dialogue was intended, however flaws arosewith the actor who was unreliable and was unable to attend on this day as we wasshort of time, we decided to scrap the idea and just go with something simple.I had an inform consent from the people around there to film, and we made sure westopped filming when there were passers by. There were also too many noise pickedup from the sounds of cars driving pass so time was wasted yet again. My initial planfor this location is that the scene from the subway will transit to the bridge scene,and I intended to make this scene shown very briefly as a location where she passesfairly quickly to her actual destination. However we played around with differentpoints where she could run from to Raphaels park. So we could later on pick thepoint was that would work well. An interesting High angle was shot which wasagreed to be used for our sequence, where the protagonists would be perceived asto be very small which connotates inferiority weak etc. We also got a worm eye viewof her face to show her facial expressions, because if most of our filming throughoutthe sequence was a long shot medium shot of
her running, it would not captivate theaudience attention as much as we intended hence this was a good shot.
