Filming our Opening Title Sequence

We all went to Rosie's house to film are opening titles. It was a fun experience and we were much more prepared than our other scenes we done such as the 'Snatcher' and 'Bag Swap'. We knew what problems we had to focus on, such as space above the head and focused clips.

We filmed in Rosie's room and we made sure you could not see any of Rosie's things so that the room looks more manly. We shut all the lights and used the camera light that we were given to attach to the top of the camera. We started filming shots of Prince sleeping at we made sure we got many shots such as close ups, wide shots and extreme close ups. We had a few problems with the tripod and the bed, so we had to do some of them hand-held and hope it wasn't shaky. We also tried making it look like Prince was sweating which we splashed water over his head and neck.

Prince brought a friend to play the little girl which she done very well. We had to cover her dress in blood but we didn't have any so we had to make it from scratch. Me and Rosie decided to experiment and mix shampoo, ketchup, water and pink food colouring to create the blood. It looked good but it kept drying so we had to keep re-applying. We had to shoot a scene when Monica had to act like she was dead on the floor and Prince had to chuck the knife next to her. We were worried that the knife might hit her so we shot them separately. I think that it all went well and I can't wait to see the final film
