Here is our Animatic.

we've decided after much deliberation to use "Amylase" by Cajun dance party as our soundtrack. Not all the shots are here yet, as you can see there's still a few frames of black. But the frame work is there.
hope you like it

Mood board

This is our mood board, It combines examples of films we like, juxtaposed against films that are classic examples of the teen Rom-com genre. also there is a picture of Alec Baldwin, we put this in because we like the way he narrates the royal Tenenbaums intro. we are considering using a Narratior.

Risk Assesmemt

There seems to be a very low overall risk to our safety that come with any of our filming ideas. There is one shoot where we plan to film a Reporter with Luke playing Basketball in the background, this may come with hazards such as spraining ankles or breaking fingers. But as Luke is an experienced Basketball player, the likelihood of this happening is slim. There can also be other hazards such as dropping the camera, which could damage or even break the camera, but this will be countered through keeping the camera attached to a tripod at all times whilst out of its case. In addition there are possibilities of tripping over wires of equipment left laying around, which may hurt any of our team, but we will ensure that all equipment is safe, and wires are not left laying around. If any of the incidents above do happen, we will ensure to get help from a professional first aider as quick as possible, and to inform a teacher of any damaged equipment.

Our target audience will be independent, targeting large picture and art houses such as 'the regal' in central Cambridge.
We will be independent to keep costs as low as possible, and so we can reach a niche audience.

Some information about our little move

Heres a little list of the things we've decided:

- Location
- Actors:
(these aren't all the actors we want to use but these are the characters we've defiantly cast)
- Josh Jones: Cartoonist
- Patrick hallett: Photographer
- Luke fuller: Basketball player
- Henry Jones: Cartoonist age 14
- Thomas Jones: Cartoonist age 10

- Risk assessment
Basketball shot possible risk?
One of the planned shots involves a basketball player (Luke) to play basketball in the background of a shot. This is really the only shot that could cause anyone injury.

Lots of pictures and good video usage.
Evidence of work
Good mood board

Needs more writing in general
More posts
Needs an animatic and no opening sequence information


Blog Feedback

Overall most groups seemed to think out blog looks good, through the use of images. They also thought that our mood-board reflected well on our vision for our Opening Sequence. Through use of images, other groups commented on evidence of work, and it looks like we are all really enjoying the subject.

The main conclusion for improvement on our blog was that it just needs more done to it. More explanation as to our overall goal, and onto all of our previous blogs, more blogs are needed telling you what we've done. In addition our Animatic is missing, so we need to develop and upload that.

What we're up to.

On Tuesday we pitched out idea to Emma and the rest of the group. We received a lot of positive feedback from our peers as well as some constructive criticism. The group seemed to like our ideas, but thought we needed to work more on our synopsis and were concerned about how we would execute the animation within out piece.

We are now working on our storyboard/animatic and pictures or videos will shortly follow. Trying to work on introducing the characters, and giving the piece a slight Wes Anderson feel.
