Shoot Day

I’m just putting the finishing touches to the paperwork for today’s filming.

My Call Sheet for today

The Call Sheet is nearly complete thanks to the help from my Production Co Ordinator (who, in other news, has recently been made Production Manager so well done her!).

The Risk Assessment has been signed off and we have been given clearance from the location. Contracts were sent back and fourth and an agreement was finally reached.

I have the equipment all ready; a Z1 camera, Sony clip mic and a tripod. I’m also going to take Dedo lighting with blue gels just in case the light in the room isn’t the best. It looks to be a bright day down in London though so hopefully I won’t need the lights.

I am taking blue gels in case I need to use the dedo’s with natural light streaming through the windows.

Balancing of light temperature is something I learnt on a shoot I did 2 years ago as part of BBC Aspirations. I think, because it was something I figured out myself, it increased my confidence with lighting.

I think the key thing is to play around with different scenarios if you have chance. You learn so much by having a practical go of filming.

Anyway, I’ll continue my printing and will blog about the shoot soon.
