Location Scouting

For our practice film we came up with the idea for a dodgy bag exchange. We toyed with the idea of doing it in a local cafe but it just wasn't practical because

  • There was a possibility that the cafe owners would be opposed to us filming in their cafe
  • Unwanted people getting in the way of shots (Extras)
  • We hadn't perfected all of the cameras functions so we wanted to stay as close to the technicians as possible
  • We wouldn't have any dictation to the lighting
So we just decided to film in college. Meaning I had to put my geographical knowledge of the college to use.  The themes of the plot where, Dark, Low key and Isolated and instantly I thought of the space next to common room it ticked all of those boxes
