THE F I L M I N G
On Thursday we set off to create ''the bag swap'' scene. It was by far one of the greatest experience I had filming with others, since the start of the course.
Myself and Max were both actors, while Hanifah was filming it all. Together we all pitched in our ideas and thoughts. And we werent shy to mention whether we thought something was wrong or wasnt working well. Thats what made it a success to film!
During the first few shots, it was quite hard to stay serious and focused. There was a lot and I mean a lot of Hiccups and Laughter!! There are many shots we would like to keep as 'outtakes'. Inorder to show our first experience in film making and acting. In success, we managed to include 3/4 shot types mentioned;
*ECU *POV Shot *Over The Shoulder
*A Tracking ShotWe had a certain time restriction, so we never looked over everyshot we took there and then. Instead we waited till we got down to editing to watch them all.

I Guess the downside to having many shots..48 to be exact! Is that It takes long to watch them all and decide which ones we are going to use. However the whole process of editing the shots we chose and putting them together, seemed very simple & straight forward.Maybe because there was 3 of us helping each other?.
Although we were the only group with an exceeding amount of shots and the last ones to get on the MAC and start editing. We actually finished putting out scenes together.
