This is an introduction to the paperwork that you need for your planning. Depending on your production, not all of it will be needed for your pre production folder. Download the checklist and make sure you have filled out all the planning you need to do.

The best thing to do is to collect the paperwork you feel most comfortable with. here I have presented the ones I like, in a logical order. If you make a model now, you will find it easier to plan later.

A collection of forms from Dependant FIlms – have a look at these examples of paperwork.

Since a few of you have been asking what is happening, I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of what is happening. You will get a brief soon, but over the next few weeks we are focussing on basic skills to prepare you for the Project itself which, in short, is collaborating with actors to produce a short film about living in a small town.

You will help to develop a story around their characters, script it, plan it and shoot and edit. They will be available for a 3 week window of shooting (including Half Term), and for pick-ups and sound work.

You will need to manage it!

By now you should have chosen your film in your group, and completed your Pre production.

You need to have your own plan; you need to prove you can script, storyboard and shotlist yourself. And get these uploaded to your blog!

So, today you will need to show your planning, and once you have it all – get shooting! We need to see you working in groups, being productive and getting your sweded scene done!

Get your equipment and film.

When you edit, you will need to capture and save your footage to the Media Drive – make sure one of the Tutors helps you, and don’t log off unitl you have copied it over.

You will need to have your own, individual edit ready for 3.30 on Friday.
