Short Film Plan

My Story:

Two friends decided to meet each other for a catch up, they decided to go to the woods just because it is quieter and they do love an adventure together. As they get further and further in they both started to see pieces of clothing laying in the leafs they look at one another perplexed as each other, still walking into the woods they see more and more of someones personal belongings they thought to collect some of it to try and find the owner it all belongs to. As more time passed they reach the centre of the woods and see something they wouldn’t normally see one a daily basis. They couldn’t believe what they are seeing an unconscious man, they weren’t sure if he was dead but we could see blood on leaves around them.

Location Research

Describe the scene in which the location is to be used (this should match your storyboard):

Date and time you visited location: 10th March 2017

Describe location and add photos / video:

 

 

 

Access to location including legal requirements:

Lighting requirements. Think about how this fits with other scenes:

Are you recording sound on location, are there any issues in doing this?

Do you need to dress the location?

Why use this location? I am using this location as it is enclosed, its easy to access to the public, I like the scenery to it looks like something you generally see in a movie and because theres no leaves on the trees I am able to use them to hide the props.

Why not use this location?

Time and date of planed shooting and why: Thursday 16th March, all three of us aren’t at college so it makes sense to do it then, around 3pm.

One thought on “Short Film Plan

  1. Really good Michaela. Make sure that YOU know what the thing you see at the end is in advance. It’s a good idea to put it down in here – Don’t worry about “spoilers”: You will need to evidence planning for, and research on how to re-create whatever it is.

    If you want you can leave that as a draft until everyone has seen your film, but I need to know you have done it.
