We had to choose our own groups for this project. Me, Dee Kay and Steven linked together to make our group. We were given a brief to create opening credits and watched a few videos on this topic during the lecture.
We brain stormed various ideas. For example, comedy, crime, depression and thriller sequences. In the end we decided to go with an idea along the lines of a crime/thrller video.
description: based on hollow figures. These individuals who are psychotic in the head but deemed healthy by society. They do not feel or see the world in the same way as everyone else
Video shots which have a photo mask of the charactors. Detailed and quite close up portrait. Headshots. Based on a desk.. office type, files detective work, etc etc
Time lapsed video elements

In week 6, during the lesson we looked at editing our video. We decided to add on time-lapse, subtitles, music, etc. We have got quite far with our editing and should be finished soon. I am happy and pleased so far. I am looking forward to seeing our final video.
Week 5, We had completed our filming in week 3 and 4. We had 74 video footages and we had to pick out the best videos for editing. We saw all 74 videos and chose the most relevant. We made a good start with the editing and still have to continue.
Week 4, We have finished filming (Hooray!). We have been filming from 6pm till 10pm. It was long filming and it was really cold outside. We continued filming at Tooting Broadway Station and then we did filming at Colliers Wood Station, our final destination. I was really happy the way the filming went and very pleased with the job done. We have done the hard part and I really enjoyed the filming and had a great time and it was fun. I am looking forward to editing.
The location that we are filming at is Tooting Broadway Station, London Waterloo Station and Colliers Wood Station.

Our group finally decided on an idea for our short film. The locations we chose were Waterloo, Tooting and Collier Wood train stations. We discussed how we were going to film such as different types of camera angles,what roles everyone was going to play in the film and when we were going to film. We made good progress and the teamwork was very positive. Here is the outline for the script of our film project.
- Ki filmed outside of a shop. WATERLOO
- Drops bag on the floor, retrieves all items, but leaves behind wallet.
- Saad walks behind me, notices wallet on the floor and picks it up.
- Examines wallet and identity card.
- Ki arrives at her house.
- Unpacks her bag and realises wallet in missing = distress
- DK calls Saad and asks if we are still meeting up TOOTING BROADWAY
- DK appears from Right side, Saad appears from the Left side.
- Saad explains DK, befor they can hang out they need to return this wallet.
- Saad pulls up the contact card, DK calls the number and speaks to Ki.
