Script and Props Change

While making changes to our script, we were advised by our teacher to add in a section where James needs an item to make a gesture of disclaim against femininity after we mentioned that his kitchen clearly has a woman's touch. Instead of risking any health and safety issues with possible breakages, or destroying the location, we have decided to go with a note from his then ex-girlfriend.

The note will say something along the lines of "can't wait for tonight, love you" which after being read, James will crumple up and throws it across the room as a sign of anger and discontent. This will now be added to the props list.

Contacting Music Organisations

Due to all the songs we like and want to use for our short film being by one artist we only have to contact one Music Organisation to ask. The band whose music we are using is Boyce Avenue who are part of 3 Peace Records which is why we are contacting them. Unfortunately, we can't find an email to contact 3 Peace Record privately so we have had to message them on twitter asking for an email and then tweet them asking if we could possibly use any of their music.

Song One: Song Two: Song Three: Song Four: Song Five: Song Six: Song Seven:

Saturday, 18 October 2014


For our short film, Jayme and I have decided to not include any speech; just music. We think this will be very affective and will make the audience concentrate on what is actually happening in the film.

Due to this we will need many songs throughout; so the song will change when the mood changes. In the first draft of our script we have guessed we will use around 7 different songs. So now we need to find them.

We think we will be looking for acoustic music as we believe this will fit in with the genre of the short film well.

I will post the music we are using when we find it.

Ancillary Poster Ideas

  • Jame's hands holding the £5 note will be the main feature.
  • Title could also be on the £5 note?
  • Or in a handwriting font similar to the writing on the £5 note.

Script Changes

After the second redraft of our script we handed it in to our teacher asking them for any suggestions to make it better. These are the improvements she made.

  • Mobile phones for all characters.
  • Empty plates on the table in the restaurant at the start - shows they've been there a while.
  • Glass and a straw - the male protagonist distracts himself with this.
  • Napkin - Girlfriend throws it down before leaving.
  • Bill
  • Money (what the man gives to the waiter, and the change the waiter gives back to him; including the £5 note with writing on.)
  • Coat
  • Keys
  • Glass/Mug
  • Watch

Script Draft 1

This is the first draft of our script so far. We really like the idea of creating a short film without speech, and from Jayme's questionnaire, so do our target audience. Because of this, at the minute our script only contains locations, stage directions and music fade in/outs. However, this may change in the future once more questionnaires have been created.

Emails From Restuarants

Since we emailed the restaurants we were interested in filming we haven't had any response apart from one which unfortunately was negative as they wouldn't allow us to film there.

Since we have had no other email responses we will now be ringing the restaurants, asking them if we can use there restaurant as a location. Hopefully this way it will be easier to get an answer then through email.

Questionnaire Results Part 1

These are the results to my first questionnaire. It was a general questionnaire about short films and this is letting me know the general target audience for short films as well as popular genres.
