This little message is just to say hi and welcome, If you haven't already read the about me section on this page, I would suggest you go and take a look. That section will tell you some basic information about myself and will tell you the reasoning for this blog. If you like, please stick around and feel free to take a glance around this page. If you like what you see, please feel free to follow and keep up to date with the latest ideas I have for my project.
Whilst filming my project, I have a lot of equipment that I will be using. Instead of using all of the schools equipment, I will most probably be using my own equipment from home. This equipment will include:
Glidecam hd 2000
Glidetrack hd 05m
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens
Rode Video Mic Pro
Will use natural lighting as piece will be shot during the day.
I have one of two ideas that I would like to conduct. I am working by myself and would prefer to carry out the first idea however I have the second idea to fall back on just in case everything goes to pot with the first idea.
The first idea I have, and the one I would most like to carry out, is an opening of a free running documentary. The documentary would be called philosophy and would look into the insights into certain participants ideas and beliefs of the sport. The opening would begin with some landscape shots of famous places where participants train in, the next shot would be of some basic tricks and moves carried out by the participants who will later be interviewed. The next shot would include one famous participant describing what free running is, The title would then show and there would then be a montage of various places and people who take part in free running. The opening credits would then show ad the sequence would come to an end.
The second idea I have, and the one i have as a back up incase anything goes wrong with the first idea which means I cannot carry it out, is the opening of a film about a boy who lives with his step-dad, after his mother died, who he or his sister do not lie. The boy is of age to leave the house and go and live by himself, however he is not of age to be the legal career of his younger sister. The boys step dad is very abusive, an alcoholic, and has no job. The boy and step dad constantly have arguments about his inability to care for both him and his sister. The boy constantly claims that the step dad never loved his late mother and was only with her for the money. Because the step dad uses all the money that the mother left her son, he has inproper equipment for school, for this reason, the boy is bullied. So, all in all, the boys life is not going well. The opening will consist of the first shot being a long shot of the boy standing at his mothers grave with a bouquet of flowers. The shot then goes into a close up of the grave and then of the boys face. The audience then hear a car horn and we see the boy look at where the noise is coming from. The shot then skips to the boy looking at the car where his step dad is sitting in a van waiting for his step son. The son lets out a sigh, places the flowers on his mother gave then walks over to the car. There is then a fade to black and the title is shown, there is another fade to black and we see the son entering the car, with his step-father angrily shouting at him, the son finally loses his temper and shouts back, the step father, outraged, slaps his step son. The sons sister lets out a cry of horror and screams. The son at this point tells his sister to get out the car and start walking to school as he himself opens the door. His sister obeys to his brothers commands and exists the car. As the son steps out of car, he looks at his step father and tells him that he hates him and that he never loved his mother, and his mother would be ashamed of the trust she put in him. The father responds by saying that his mother isn't here to be ashamed. The son is then livid and hits his step father. The step father quickly exists the car and the last scene is of the boy running down the cemetery away from his step father. The opening credits then show and the title is shown again.
These are two ideas and I am very keen to get started on my project. I hope you all enjoy reading this and find my ideas intriguing and exciting.
