I am on my final product of level 2 media at she and I've decided I'm going make a short film for the first 2weeks of this project I had know idea what I was going to do I spoke to both my teachers about it and I watched videos and done research but my mind was at a blank then I was out with some friends and it came to me I wasn't thinking about it and it just came to me after that I knew it and I knew how I wanted it to happen the plan is I'm going have someone on my course named James and Ben be my actors and what's going happens is James is walking in to college and he trips over and gets knocked out he doesn't know he's unconscious And he “wakes up” and then noticed his bag was gone and he went mental he thought he saw the boy who stole it so he chased after him all round the college running into classes before getting to the class where Ben is the person he thought stole it he went to go over to him but the tutor stopped him and said get out of my class! As he was walking out there was a stack of folders on the desk and James pushed them off and walked out then James waited for Ben to come out of class and as Ben was walking out of college James walked up and stated asking where's my bag Ben said I haven't f***ing got it I don't know what your talking about then James heard someone calling his name again and again and again and he's looking around and Ben then looks at James and says James wake up but it looks like he's going crazy then he starts to come round and he's a bit Dizzy and then someone walks over to him and kicks him in the head and you can hear people panicking and then the screen goes dark that end but what really happened was he was dreaming the whole then Ben is there shaking him and he slowly starts to come round and wake up to ben sitting next to him and there being no one else around and his bag is sat next to him!
So this was the first cut of my story board I haven't added text or shots to it yet because i wanted to get a little idea in to how it works and how I should lay it all out.
This is the second cut after i finished this one I spoke to the class TA Matt about what I could change and what he thinks of it as he is a director and writer so he showed me some of his work and then told me what I could do to change it or make it better with the fact i'm using storyboardthat it was hard to make serious changes like he said I could do on paper so I could only make a few changes online
so this is the final part to the first half of my storyboard I have made the changes that Matt has suggested to me as much as possible I also added in how the shot going to be filmed such as CP (close up) WS (wide shot) so then the crew the director the cast and myself know how I want the video shot to be down and how the angles and stuff have to be!
i'm about half way though making my story boards and it seems to be going well I'm having a bit of trouble with storyboardthat as I'm not much of a drawer so I didn't want to draw the story board out myself so I used the site suggested by one of my teachers my project seems to be going well I'm having a few problems where I'm forgetting how things are done but good thing is there is the class support and teachers to help me remember and to show me how to do it. I've got to get my script and recce and call sheet done before I decided to start filming I got my actors and I've gave them a rough idea how I want it done. I'm hoping to be able to direct and operate the camera myself being camera operator is what I would like to do in the future! As part of my final product I've got to learn how to do things by myself as for previous projects we worked in groups so we all had something to do we weren't having to do every unit ourself where now we have too sort out the sound and the sound gear ourself sort out camera gear the camera shots and also I have to do my storyboard and script and risk assessment on my own there is the help from teachers and class support works and we can have help from fellow classmates but we then got think they have work to be done too so we can't keep bothering each other. I've also got to edit the video myself that should take some time because with Final Cut Pro I know the basic stuff but it's learning other effects I may need for my final work!
This is the second from last of the storyboard and I and was having some trouble with it but after talking with the teacher and class support works. I worked out what you need to make a good storyboard I wasn't able to do all the things you can do on a storyboard as I wasn't drawing it I was using storyboardthat which is a website online where you can create storyboards using features they provided. In this storyboard you can see that James is storming in to the media lesson and is being told by tutor Steve to get out of his class and he is teaching a lesson so then James goes and waits outside of the college for Ben to finish college.
This is the finished storyboard I hope I have done it the way it should be done but I have tried my best to stick to what was suggested by my teacher's In the final part of my storyboard you can see James looking around and then him waking up,with Ben by his side also you see where will comes and kicks James in face and knocks him unconscious before he wakes up in the real world with ben by his side. James then asks Ben if he stole his bag and ben says no then looks at the camera.
