Narrative storyboard

This is our story board that shows the range of shots we are hopefully going to achieve in our narrative performance shoot. We have drawn some pictures to represent the shots we are trying to capture. It is important to plan out the narrative to make sure it is thorough enough and makes narrative sense altogether.

We put coloured dots in the corner of each sticky notes , red to indicate the most important shots that are essential to get done properly in order to have a successful shoot and orange to less important and green for can get those shots done another time if needed and would just be a good extra. It was useful using sticky notes as we could move them around on the sheet and change the order easily.

W2e have a range of ideas; mainly highlighting the contrasting characters.

Performance rough cut

This is our performance rough cut; we briefly put together all of our shots from our performance shoot. We did not lip sinc or edit it properly as it was just a rough cut to showcase our footage.

We were happy with the footage we got as we feel like we had a variety of distances and angles, some shots in focus and some out of focus for effect.

Shoot Reflection (performance)

Evaluation of Performance shoot:

When we were on our shoot, we went to multiple locations; we focused on dark and grungy settings.

We shared the equipment to carry such as the camera, tripod, shot lists and sheets and the torch.

When filming shots we all checked that we were happy with how it looked through the camera; like if it was in focus or the right framing and good rule of thirds so there wasnt any unnecessary wasted space.

We bounced ideas off each other and when we walk past a place on the way to our second location that we thought would be suitable we took the opportunity to film there and get some extra shots.

We did work well as a team and our model was very co operative and listened well which we were thankful for.

The makeup was done just before the shoot.


We had to get a new battery half way through as our camera wasn’t charged up from the last person who used it; it took up a bit of our time so would be better if we made sure we had a spare fully charged battery.

Also our SD got full towards the end of our shoot so we had to take more time out to get a second one to keep recording our footage. We should bring a spare SD card or make sure it has enough space or has a high enough storage to last the whole shoot.

We didn’t get a lot of footage of all the lyrics of the song; we needed our performer to learn the lyrics better; should have given her more time.

The lipstick came off a bit and because we used a tester from a shop we couldn’t re apply. So maybe we can bring our own lipstick next time.

Risk Assessment

This is my risk assessment for the shoot on Friday the 11th May 2018. It is important to consider risks and get organised! I have discussed hazards with my teacher; she looked over my risk assessment and signed it off. Having everyone signing the risk assessment shows they have all read and understood it and makes sure they stick to it.

Production Meeting Agenda

It is very important to do a production meeting agenda because it helps plan out how we will spend our time efficiently, it reinforces what we are doing, what we need to bring, where we are going and the locations and the makeup and costume. It is good to have it on a document visually represented because it will enable us to easily go back and look at the sheet. i have personally printed it out for everyone so we can all have a copy to make sure we stick to it and double check.
