    G321 - 'Mental' Production Timeline

  • Treatment

    I thought more in-depth with the direction I wanted to go with my film – how the character behaves, his mannerisms. I completed the spider diagram sheet, completing the headings and going into detail with factors such as: audience; characters; setting/location; opening sequence; narrative; themes and cinematography/style/expressionism. I also made a character profile to help suffice information towards the film – so I can picture how the character should be, should act.
  • Theory Lesson

    Theory lesson on British Social Realism – continuing with a lesson on films we have analysed before.
  • Drafted out plan for title sequence

    Reviewed the coming weeks, what is to be expected and dates to remember. I intend to make sure I have all work complete and clear in my mind (also as I won’t have enough time with typing everything up) so I plan to do the storyboard tomorrow. As there are problems connected to my school computer account, I plan to complete most work at home, at least until the problem is rectified. Started drafting out the plan for the title sequence.
