Hello, I'm
Matthew Romo (1660) from Group 2. The other embers of my group are Harry Kettenis (0390), Josh Stevenson (0796) and Ysabel Hudson-Searle (0331).

Hopefully navigation should not be an issue on my blog; 'labels' on the right hand side near the top will direct you to groups of posts from specific areas. Research and Planning, Production, and Evaluation work should all be available to see under their respective A2 labels. The other labels will direct you to work from my AS level and preliminary activities for A2.

Also, by clicking on the "Latymer Music Video Blog" link above the labels, you can go back to Latymer's main music video blog where all other blogs from my class can be accessed.

Finally, I hope you enjoy observing and assessing my work as much as I did creating it.

Shoot Day 2 - 29/10/14 - Harry's House

The second shoot day was at Harry's house, again focusing on acquiring footage to use for narrative; both positive and negative relationship shots were key in providing a story for our video.

A location recce of Harry's taken before we came  gave a us a good idea what the setting was like as well as its lighting, before we actually shot there. We could get a rough idea where to set up the lighting kits and what issues could potentially occur.

We knew which shots we would obtain more so than in the previous shoot but again planned loosely for time, meeting at mid day and shooting until the evening. This left us the flexibility to see what worked best in terms of angles, composition, and shot distances.

Since almost every shot from this day included both Yssy and Harry acting, Josh and I had more of a role in directing and lighting the shots. However, due to the rotatable monitor screen on the HF G30 camera, Yssy and Harry could see what shots looked like. This enabled them to provide valuable input in composition and lighting.

We shot the fire poi later in the day once it had gotten dark so that the fire compelling lit the shot and contrasted with the lack of light from other sources. Olivia being the subject on camera, Harry and Yssy took much of the footage we recorded of her. Essentially, everybody was able to contribute to everything in different amounts but we all took a healthy responsibility in engaging with this shoot day.
