Medea #5 – Filming Again

I'm sure I've already wrote this stuff and it's disappeared, but here I go again.

The second half our filming took place in the studio. We decided on a minimal approach to set etc. We stuck to the original idea of having a person sat in a chair infront of a camera and that the person would keep changing every now and again. There was the tidy addition of having someone of the opposite gender stood behind them against the wall which was the lit from below to good affect. This way both genders were always present however the focus switches constantly so the viewer is unable to sympathise with one and always think of the other. The actual filming was textbook but almost too clinical. I can understand blowing up a life size bridge having to be done in one take, but saying one line can surely be messed around with from time to time. But its the same problem as last time were you feel like jackass if you say do it again but liek this. Who has the right? But fairplay to all actors we got good stuff I just felt like the process wasn't liquid enough. ACTION! CUT! NEXT! ACTION! CUT! NEXT! Liquid.

Perhaps my favourite thing about these parts its that even though there is another person stood behind the person in the foreground, the person in the background never says anything, except once! Sophie says "no" to something Owen says, so the only word we get from the guys in the back is in opposition to the front, enough said. It's war.
