I shot a "Teaser Trailer."
You can watch it in all it's full HD, fullscreen glory here.
First of all, what problems did I have with this?
- I didn't have an HD camera
- The film is going to be based in Fiji, I have never been to Fiji, nor do I have any footage of Fiji
- I was living in Leeds at the time. There aren't many sharks in Leeds.
- At this stage, I had only ever shot and cut music videos for the band alongside two parody "rockumentaries" used merely as a way to put a load of live footage from different gigs on one tape, I had never had to storyboard anything or construct my own shoot.
The lack of Fiji and the lack of sharks was a big problem, it's a teaser for a film about sharks in Fiji and it won't have either in it so what the hell was I supposed to do?! This is lesson seven, learn to make the most out of the resources you have available and more importantly, be creative with them!
