short form video (production)

Today our group (The terrorists) began the production of our drama, Hostage, by filming at Sopley, along with the lecturer, police and TV groups.

We basically filmed the last scene where the police raid the terrorists base. This shoot very important because we knew this would be the one opportunity to use the facility, so we had to make the most of it. We had already planned to film a still shot of the interior of the location we were filming in. Then using the green screen back at the uni we would be able to composite the shot of the interior onto the green screen; therefore the rest of what we film will be at done at the uni.

This is a very challenging task. Hopefully, to get the best result of making it look as real as possible, we made sure we shot some footage of someone sitting on a chair using the same camera angle. This will help us to match the lighting so that the footage taken at Sopley and the footage taken at the uni is seamless.

The green screen we used to day would be used for the background visual for the terrorists video for when they make their demands. We are going to create some computer graphics for their background.

Below are some photos I took whilst we were on the shoot.
