While creating our micro-drama, I have learned a lot from filming the footage and the various factors that need to be taken in consideration.
Firstly, I have learned that in order to start filming, you need to have a detailed story board along with very precise shots that you are wanting to use. We did not have this and therefore we were spontaneously creating our storyboard and were using different shots as we went along.
However, I discovered that it is not only filming that needs to be taking in to consideration, but other factors such as the weather. I have learnt that you have to be prepared and have a back up plan if it is raining etc.
Lastly, in order to make the micro-drama film more interesting, shots such as cross cuts and close ups can be used rather than just having a medium shot for long lengths of time.
