At the very start of this project I have written a job application. We got to choose either floor manager, Director, camera operator, vision mixer, sound mixer, presenter, PA or autocue operator. I have chosen to be the floor manager, at first I was going to choose to be the sound mixer but I was told it will include a bit of stress which I wouldn't work very well with. I found out that the role of floor manager was already taken and I had the role of camera operator. Although I couldn't get the role I wanted it wasn't so bad being the camera operator.
I have researched my role (camera operator) that I need to be able to multi-task, I have to watch, listen and think at the same time. On camera, it shows 2 different zooms: one zooms in slowly and one zooms at a normal speed. If there's a shot that you need to do again, you have to be able to get the same shot as before when you are changing shots. It is better to plan your shots to help you remember, as flipping through the script might be harder to remember which shot is which.
On our first lesson of our project, our group have made some discussions about who's buying the ingredients and what VTs we will be doing for each person, such as the intro. I have chosen to do the ingredients and equipment VTs. We have planned do get all of our VTs 2 days before next lesson. The items we needed for our film were borax, glue, soap, shaving cream, water,
This is a small rehearsal footage that I have:
