Narrative Film Updates…

After our lecture on Narrative analysis, for Elliott, Adam and myself  headed down to the army surplus store to look for a navy boiler suite. The cheapest one I found was on ebay was £25 and I didn’t expect to find anything cheaper in stores. I was wrong, right as you step into a shop there is a large navy boiler suite with ‘6.99’ labelled on it. As soon as we work out the talent’s sizes we’ll pick it up.

After this we headed to Caitlin’s house (our main shooting location), took some snaps to work out the geography of the film and see how it looks on the dslrs and then sorted out casting. We have three roles in our film, all of which we have a possible actor for. We are meeting up with them next week for a script read through (which we will be filming incase we need to look back) and then see where we go from there. These are the headshots for them though…

We also did a quick prop list so we could work an average budget, which came to £11.99. This included costumes, props and set decorations. Not too extreme but this doesn’t include transport and catering; that’s where the big bucks come in.

We also briefly looked into music. To avoid any copyright issues/rejections from festivals we are sticking with an original soundtrack and using music (for radios etc.) that’s in the public domain. I know Cliff Richard’s stuff is nearly there but that is not really what we’re looking for… But this has a better feel to it:

Adam stated that the use of this kind of music is very Woody Allen (as he recently introduced me to him and I’m gradually becoming a fan since seeing Midnight in Paris) but I feel its more like Fallout 3 which uses a similar soundtrack but things are looking forward! The first draft of the script is nearly done and then we can jump to things like storyboarding and shooting script.
