Pre-Production Unit: Edit/Comm

Today, teaming up with Chloe successfully, we were able to unite our research in archive to put into our rough cut which i have been putting together today. Slotting in relevant archive has been tricky, finding quality footage is going to prove difficult but Chloe has obtained the sources from a recent History Channel Documentary, so by next week I expect we will have a strong set of high quality, relvant cutaway footage to match the words. Keeping Rabiger's "Directing the Documentary" at hand I have been writing the Guide Comm. script along side the edit today: learning the 'Power of the first word' making sure I am aware that The first word to fall on a new new image influences how the audience interprets it I am, at the moment struggling, as with each review changes will be made so my comm will always be subject to change, but once the edit comes together I will have enough words to cover the images, come the final edit. Thinking ahead to the Delivery Process which starts next Wednesday 2nd May having consulted specialist binders, Hollingworth & Moss in an email I ascertained that I'd like to see if they have a mock-up or a previous example? Plus we'd want the 'top secret' stamp with our Title: The Cockleshell Raid 2012 A New Generation Tackles the Impossible (all in our chosen font) inside we'd want a bound document on thick, quality glossed paper if possible... I envisaged the document to be encased (as suggested in a correspondence from Hollingworth & Moss) in a clamshell presentation box
with our title and a 'top secret' stamp
DVD casement within the box? We will start delivery package next week (2nd May) The completed package will be done by (11th May) Estimate that it will be between 50-75 pages Detailed schedule coming soon General theme is aged secret document traditional red stamp on the front with the font embossed inside cover maintains the war time document feel
