The Package: Shooting

We decided to shoot The Package directly outside of our school. This was mainly for two reasons: 

1) We did not have to go far with the School's cameras. This lessened the risk of dropping or breaking them and having to pay money for a new one.

2) The location of a long and empty path is actually right outside of our school, so this is very convenient and saves a lot of time as we didn't have to travel far.

The shooting was very simple - we used a tripod with a Sony Digital Camera and shot three scenes using very simple camera functions such as 'Record' and 'Zoom'. We did not need to use any Special FX as this was just a 'practice' video and just basic recording features were needed.

We used three people for shooting: Myself, Toby and our friend Emma. I played the part of the person dropping the package whilst Toby filmed, Emma played the part of the lady trying to eat the package and Toby played the part of the person taking the package whilst I filmed. 

We also managed to capture an elderly woman in the film, who asked us if the package was ours, it was very comedic and a good edition to our short movie!

Overall, the filming was very fun and the camera's with the tripod set-up were easy to use. This has made me more confident for when when I begin filming for my main coursework project.
