Filming Day 3

We filmed shot numbers 9, 10, 11 and 12 and we struggled with the lighting for a bit because the strong lighting in the house as it being late a night for the full effect of our movie being a thriller. There was not a lot of material left to film  on the third day as we had already accumulated enough footage meaning we would run over the 2 minute timing of the opening sequence but after editing shots not needed we felt this would not be a huge problem.


filming day 2

On the second day of filming we managed to film shot numbers 5, 6, 7, 8 from the shooting script. we had some issues filming the shot where we had ruddy talking on the phone and also kayle, other than that minor problem it was still a successful day shooting as we felt the shots and diegetic sound that we captured worked really well with the plot as tension is built naturally without any editing or non-diegetic sound.


Filming Day 1

Referring to the shooting script on the first day of filming we managed to achieve the filming of shot numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4. filming on day 1 was successful but some errors were made but can be redone and improved.

Title Choice

These are the ideas for the title of our opening sequence:
Through the Window
The Watching
I Can See You
Phone Call
Don't Look Now

As a group we came up with these ideas for a title, we preferred the titles that were just one phrase as there is a lot more mystery surrounding them and a singular word has more impact then a two or more.  We decide to use the title 'Watched' as it appeared most relevant to our sequence and the rest of the film so it fit.  It also has a lot of mystery involved with it as the film could be about a number of plots.

opening plot

Beginning - Boy believes he is being watch and stalked by a group of mysterious hooded people, even in his own house.  Believes it could be psychological and all in his head.

Middle - Goes to a psychiatrist and various other counselling sessions including hospital for a psyche evaluation to see if he has any mental issues or if he is actually being followed.

End - Gets the police involved but still the stalking goes on until the boy is convinced he has lost his mind, been driven to insanity.  The demons get too much and he sadly takes his own life.

for our film we do not have or need a budget, we are luckily enough getting given a camera and tripod from our media department and also the house will be free as its one of our houses so we wont need to pay for it. If we had got a huge budget we may of been able to introduce special effects into the film and also better camera shots may be introduced.
