First day of filming:
We reached Whipps Cross at 3pm, and began filming the opening of our thriller. The weather was sunny , which was ideal as we wanted to get shots of the sun through the trees; also the we wanted a natural sunlight, to make it feel like morning. We managed to film the flashback of the man attacking his victim, and the scene when the man wakes up in the forest, to discover he’s covered in blood yet not injured, him beginning to get head pains and also the scene he finds the dead body, covered in blood.
Here we were experimenting with different shots, we wanted to pull of point of view shot from when the guy wakes up. We are still not certain whether to include it in out thriller as, it looks slightly amature, yet hopefully we can edited so it looks professional.
The first day of filming was a success, we had no trouble with the weather, so we were able to get nice shots with the natural lighting against the scenary, we were a little hesitant whether the fake blood would look realistic, but we managed to pull it off well in the actual footage. The first day of filming gave us a greater insight of what filmimg is like, and I feel confident that our next day of filming will be an even greater success.
