Today we got together as a group for the first time and made a detailed yet rough plan on how we were going to tackle our time and input into the project. Because we’re documenting the school holidays’ ‘Stay and Play’ group, we only have a limited time to film, being only two days out of the week long half term. This is approaching in the next coming week so getting together our arrangements so we’re ready for these days is extremely important.
However, this has made us realise that we do in fact have a longer amount of time to edit our film together post filming dates which can potentially make up for some potential difficulties when filming.
Upon arriving to Bramley Baths we were briefed about each of our groups we were documenting and given a timetable of the times that were best to come and film. Bramley Baths also made it clear that because we would have to be filming children for this project, consent forms and such are of the utmost importance. This means we will have to be very careful when it comes to permission on the day and time of filming.
Noteworthy elements Bramley Baths want us to include:
-Show how family friendly and orientated the Baths are.
-Take filming advantage on the ‘Mermaid Swim’, ‘Walk the Plank’, and times when the kids will be doing fun activities.
-What people want/think of the baths – promote.
-Focus attention on Jennie (especially for interview) and her interactions with the kids and other members. (Noteworthy member of staff)
A brief summary of the plans are to get at least an interview with a parent and child of the ‘Stay and Play’ program, an interview with Jennie, who is one of the main event organisers (predominately the children and exercise programs) and film as much as we can while we can. This will leave us with no holes in footage or content, and works well giving us a longer amount of time to work on the footage afterwards.
