During the production stage the lighting was natural, as being a film 4 production, they have a small budget to workwith. Using natural lighting connotes that British social realism is not glamorous but dull and boring. This is typical of afilm 4 film as it shows British Social Realism , for example Trainspotting lighting is very natural as most of the film isfilmed on the streets.The locations that we filmed in included zarnas brothers bedroom, which was the location of the Asian girls bedroom.The bedroom was very dull as there were bare walls and dull curtains, representing British Social realism. The otherlocation that we filmed in was my house, which acted as the foster home where Amairah lived.As Film 4 has very basic equipment to work with, we used a flipcam during the scene of Amairah filming herself,showing no creativity and representing British Social Realism as old and boring. We also used a basic Panasonic camerato film and a tripod to keep the camera steady, showing no creativity, similarly to film 4 films, as for example This isEngland uses a camera and a tripod to film simple mid shots and long shots. As Film 4 dont have money to fund for adolly because of their budget we used a handheld camera to track Amairah which was also very shaky, representing Film4s style of films.As Film 4 have a small budget they cant afford professional actors as they cost to much therefore they have to castunknown actors, thus when producing the opening sequence we cast myself as the Asian girl, Hannah as the bully andfellow students who really smoke. An example of a film 4 is Trainspotting The production company cast unknownactors. As Film4s style of films relates to British Social Realism, and because they have a small budget they cant afford topay an artists music company to use there song therefore film 4 doesn't use a lot of product placement, thus in ouropening sequence we used a lot of diagetic sound being the voiceovers, and we downloaded a copyright free song fromfree play music.
