9/05/2016 – Project Diary (Plan Development)

I am behind on my work, as last week I had to take a week off as I was part of a competition called ‘Work Skills’. This means that I’m very behind on my schedule. However, I have changed a few of my original plans.

I was going to focus on steady cam and lighting in this project. However, I have received a very bad hand injury so I can barely pick up heavy equipment. I have decided if I was going to use steady cam, it would have to be someone else using it as I haven’t got time to practice with my hand injury. I have also discovered that lighting would be too hard and difficult to look into as most of my shots are outside. I will still look into it, but I can’t use big lights outside and I will look more into natural light.

Instead I am going to look more into production design. In my last project when I made the film ‘Sunset Bound’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qfJ1sHZmc4) I went into a lot of detail with props; costumes and set design. This was the part of planning I most enjoyed and I think was the most successful. I’ve decided to learn from my last film and create a film where I focus on production design. I will look more into creating sets and props, and looking at the characters costume. Also, I will look into colours I want to use and how it can affect my film.

With all this in mind I made a new rough schedule for the next two weeks so I could work around what I have left to do. The rest will stay the same on my schedule.

    This is terrific, Izzy. With Production Design as your focus, don’t let the broader ambition of your project run away from you—you could do an awful lot in a very small space of time, if you focus on (deteriorating?) costumes and props…
