This is a range of the many clips I managed to take on the first day of shooting. The shooting when to plan with the help of call sheets and a shot log.
I'm very pleased with the way the film has come out, the torches made the shots perfectly lit, as I was hoping to get darker shots. I also like the blue (cold) effect which was on my camera, I really think it has given the clip a very nice effect. I has made the shots look slightly creepier and looking at a few existing films like Quarantine you can see there are uses of blue filters.
The hand held tips I looked at also helped and I used many of the tips they gave me to steady the camera, which also looked very good as I was worried about too much camera motion which may have blurred it, especially as it was very dark.
I was also very happy with the zombies and the swat team, and the props used, I think the dark light helped as the makeshift costumes look fairly real.
I will mute all sound as I was slightly disappointed with the cameras recording quality, It produced a buzz which would put off the viewer. So instead of the diagetic sounds I will add some stock sounds from Logic to lay over where needed.
Over all I am very happy with the way the clips have come out. I will now have to film the scientist scene and a few more of the house clips in later days. I will produce a Call sheet with a shot log for each day.
How to Create Daily Call Sheets for Independent Film
Daily call sheets are imperative to organising a film shoot. They help your crew and cast to be organised, on time and prepared, and help keep your production on schedule. Essentially, it is your plan for what is going to be shot on any given day.
At the end of your shoot day, create the call sheet for the following day.
Start with basic information, the date, what day of the shoot it is (such as Day 2 of 9) and where the location is. List your crew call time (example 7 a.m.) and the time you expect to begin shooting (example 8:30 a.m.).
Start with the first scene of the day. List the scene number, the numbers of the cast needed for that scene (See How to Breakdown a Script for Film Production Scheduling), and the cast call time.
Complete the above step for each scene to be shot that day.
Include additional crew information toward the bottom of the page, for example extras needed, stand-ins, etc.
Distribute to all cast and crew before they leave the set at the end of the shoot day.
There may be several versions of a film poster for one film - as it can vary depending on country, size of poster and also the content of the film.
Which, could mean that the poster is one of the first things made (after a rough cut) which can be based on what the film includes, however, if they add in a new/different scene then that could effect the film poster due to the different meanings.
Different types of a film poster:
Teaser poster: gives off some idea about the film.
Character poster: using the poster to promote some of the actors who are in the film.
Motion poster: a new style of poster which is animated.
