Preliminary Task - Sweded Film
Continuity task involving filming and editing a character opening a door, crossing a room and sittinig down in a chair opposite another character and a shot reverse shot sequence, using 180 degree rule and match on action. The main continuity task is at 06:53 - 07:10, but there are other examples of shot reverse shot and match on action throughout the short film.
I learnt from this task that it is important to have good organisational skills to create a good production. It would of been a lot easier if we had time to storyboard each scene and written a script, therefore knowing in advance what we wanted, instead of going along with it, which was fun, but means the quality of production is reduced.
In my main production I would make sure I knew what was needed before the filming, with props, scripts, and a detailed storyboard with camera shots and angles. I will also do a lot more research into the genre and audience, as for the swede we skipped all of this research and went straight into the filming.
