Changing different parts

After looking at different parts of the latest cut we decided to change different aspects. We all felt it would be better if at the end of the opening we showed Bailey and Brooke's reaction to Chandler, we thought this would show the contrast in characters more and what the two girls both think of Chandler. We also decided to change the credits, we decided that the font and colour would be better if we changed it so it looked more professional. We also changed the order of the titles so that the name of our film came up at the end of the short opening as we found many chick flicks and other genres had a short opening before their title came up.

Changing the certificate

After adding the soundtrack we decided to change the certificate from a 12A to a 15. We decided this would be a better target audience as there is mild/ moderate language used. For example in the soundtrack "bitch" is used. We also felt that it is targeted at 15 and above because of the subjects we will be covering in the film, we also felt that people under this age wouldn't be able to relate to the story line. 


Continuity Task

Match on action shot
Match on action is when you cut two different clips together, which show two different views of the same thing. this can become tricky when editing as you don't want the shot to be disjointed. For example when editing a match on action shot of a door opening you don't want to see the door opening twice or once be nearly shut then the next time fully open.

  Shot reverse shot
Shot reverse shot is when you see the characters having a conversation, we see the character talking but the other character isn't in shot this then switches to the other character when they are speaking. 

I feel that the continuity task went well as the shots looked good and were edited well.

Re-filming weaker parts of the film

On Tuesday 29th March both me and Camilla re- filmed parts of the film that the whole group thought were weaker than other parts. We chose Tuesday as the weather was best matched to our original footage. The weather plays a big part in filming as you don't want it to seem very sunny and bright one minute then dull and grey another because of this we had to make sure the weather and the brightness matched with the original footage. We wanted to re-film the part were Chandler ran out the door and started riding to school, we chose this scene as the feedback from colleagues and teachers suggested that this was the weakest part. 
To make the pace of this scene match up with others we wanted to make it quicker and have a bit more comedy in it. We decided to change the original story a little bit and have Chandlers bike tyre's be flat because of this she can't ride her bike properly and ends up having to get off and blow it up with her mouth. When we came to edit it into the original piece it looked and flowed much better with the other material.
