Filming Villain scenes

Since out main character couldn't make it to the filming day, instead we got lots of extra footage of the two villains, Alex and Emily. We had a lot of fun filming with the costumes and set and both cast members were just as enthusiastic. It's sad we weren't able to film the scenes we wanted but we got a lot of usable footage anyhow and are well prepared for when we are able to film Rebecca as the hero role.

Filming: we've been let down

Final Filming date

We have organised a day with all our cast do do filming. We will probably be able to film the entire music video that day, including the school/bully scenes and the super hero/villain scenes with full costume and the set. Our set is now fully complete and we have sorted out costume for the two villains (cast members Alex and Emily).

filming gym scenes

As our main character isn't free often, we managed to grab her for a short while to film some gym/training scenes. These will be fore when the 'nerd' starts training to become what they aspire to be most, like a super hero. We shot scenes which could be compared to the fighting scenes we will be filming later on in full super hero costume. A lot of it of course is very comical which fits perfectly with the style of our video.

Old Batman episodes

We have taken a lot of inspiration from the 1966 Batman series. It is full of cheesy fighting scenes and amusing costumes. When it was aired it would have seemed a lot different to an audience, btu to a modern audience, the style of the episodes can be seen as quite amusing. We have decided to make a sort of 'spoof' music video inspired by Batman. Here we will have a similar style of costume (not the most convincing of costumes compared to blockbuster superhero movies today) and the use of tilted camera angles. We will also be adding the same onomatopoeia during our fighting scenes as used in the batman episodes.

Filming plans

Our main cast member, Rebecca, sadly isn't free very often to film. So we will have to somehow organise a time when she is free and make sure the other two cast members are free also. We are working towards finding a day where we can get all the filming out of the way at once since filming opportunities are rare within her busy schedule.
