Storyboards: Having realised that creating hand drawn storyboards are not exactly my forté i have found my own way of making storyboards. behold vectorised storyboards, which i have to say i am quite impressed with. however one piece of criticism i have about them is that because i have white backgrounds on a transparent background, you dont see the whole frame >.< also i have had to use some alternate imagery due to difficulty either reproducing or locating exact image matches that i wanted.
Nostalgia Test Song Process
Due to lack of time in these takes, I may have to reshoot this sequence; initially, I intended on doing a full circle around the two actors, in order to switch the people from when I face behind the body, half way through. I wanted the sun to be blocked for when transitioning from one person to the other. However, there wasn’t enough time, and the footage I took were different from what I had originally planned to do. I still think that it’s workable, but I’m not sure if I’m fully happy with the outcome. I’m going to reshoot the scenes with the older man, as I did not take a scene of him blocking the sun, the lighting is all bright, and I didn’t get the right angle to do a silhouette version. I’m also having trouble to piece it together smoothly in the editing department. I’m going to take another version, and then see which works best.
I focused on this area in the water from inside the aquarium, as I was mesmerised by how the camera picked up on the many colours within the reflection of the lights above.
The Grand Hotel
After being interested in this building from the research that I made online, I thought even though I wasn’t granted permission to film inside, I could still stop by and take a look at the place in person. It is a great building, however I think I was expecting it to stand out a bit more in some respect. I still took a few shots, I am debating whether I could fit it into the film, I will decide during the post production process. The low angle displaying the grand hotel car park sign, with the building behind it is the best shot in my opinion, and it’s very much influenced by Alfred Hitchcock’s style of making a setting seem suspenseful and mysterious.
