FMP: Shoot Day One Reflection

On reflection from day one, myself and Director, Cat have put in place a few amendments to make Shoot Day Two in Chatham even more successful, we have also noted things we could do with on shoot. - We need something to monitor the visuals as you cant always see the viewfinder from awkward positions. - A monopod could work more efficiantly in enclosed spaces (eg Contributors cluttered plot spaces) - Monitoring sound was an issue as the radio mics only indicate peaking on the interviewers pack. - In conclusion a really useful person to have would be a location sound recordist! Next time: - I need to ensure I plug in headphones to the Sony to ensure good sound (I just kept an eye on levels last time) - I will also take notes DURING the interviews to highlight key points that can later be synced up with images.

  1. Sound is so key to your film you must always monitor it throughout the shoot - even if it is the interviewer doing so if there are only two of you (see Nick Broomfield re: sound!!)
