On Monday’s lesson, we had a go at doing storyboarding, in order to have an idea of the planning we have to do before filming our opening sequence. But instead of drawing the storyboard, we did it using a camera and gummy bears!
Each gummy bear represents a person (as you may have guessed!) and we tried our best to do a little mise en scène, using blue tack and a tissue. We have decided to keep it simple, as this was just a practice for us to realise how important a storyboard can be.
We had a set story and several types of shots to do, like in our practice film “The Bag Swap”.
And here’s the result
Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to put any sound in our video. But this isn’t a main issue, as this exercise was meant for us to understand how to plan our real film.
And here’s a little “making of” gathering all the pictures and short videos I have taken “behind the scenes”!
... And if you want to know what happened to all the Gummy Bears (notice how we ended up with two in the end? ...) ask our stomachs. To be honest, they weren't even that good!
