Preliminary task

Due to time and availability of cameras, we decided to shoot the task at school, which meant we had to scrap the idea of using the child for comedy effect. We decided instead to have two friends meeting, although giving the effect of tension between them. During editing we realised that we needed music over the walking shots as there was often noises on the shots but we didn't want the film to be silent. We chose this particular peice of music becuase it's fast pace builds tension.

In our group we came up with the idea of using a child having the higher status to the adult in an office job, for comedy effect. The film features a person walking through a a building, elements of their behaviour show nervousness. The person enters the room to be told off by a child.

The Task

The continuity editing task asks us to work in a group to create a short peice of film which shows a person walking through a door, walking across the room and having a conversation with another person. The shots that need to be used are 180degree angle shot, over the shoulder shot and tracking shot.
