Today me, Jazmine and Bronte went out to film the geeks scene, the geeks costume required a checkered shirt, grey trousers that would show of his ankles and some glasses with tape wrapped around the middle. We wanted to make it clear that from the beginning of which you see the geek, you will be notified straight away with his character role from the way he walks and the way he dresses. Like all of the other characters we had to make sure that the setting would fit perfectly with the character, therefore for the geek we had chosen the science corridor, this ended up being a really great corridor to film in due to the excellent lighting.
We began filming the geek walking with the book with the corridor i'm the background, we wanted to film the geek from different angles, this is so when we go to edit then watch the sequence its not in the same position as this could become a little boring to watch. With the editing of the different angles we was very lucky that the continuity of the different angles had flowed together really well.
Once we had filmed the geek from different angles we had then went on to filming him within a classroom and opening up the yearbook. The Geek was the last character to open up the yearbook, therefore when we created the yearbook we added in pages that would fit in well with its characteristics, for example a graduation page was added had 'success' wrote over the top of the page, this went well with Geek due to him being successful throughout his school years which the audience are given a hint at when they see the geek page and are notified with the 'Headboy' page.
Title Sequence idea
Our title sequence idea is to create a yearbook which is opened by all the conventional characters that are seen in teen comedy dramas, for example 'the jock', 'the elite', 'the freak' and 'the nerds'. The title sequence will show all of these characters opening the yearbook and showing the audience their school photos whilst also showing pages such as prom day and graduation day. When creating the title sequence we need to make sure that it is very conventional, this is so it looks as realistic as possible, without the right costume and props the title sequence will not be as effective. When creating the sequence it is crucial for us to add in bright bold colours throughout the yearbook so the audience are aware that it is a high school film.
