On our fourth day of filming, we ventured into our local branch of Waitrose to film the 'gang' in a supermarket. Waitrose were more than happy for us to film. We wanted to film in a supermarket such as Waitrose because of the contrast between the high-class connotations of a supermarket like Waitrose and the low-life view of 'gangsters' in Britain. Myself and Joe also wanted to use Waitrose as a result of our experiences of working there, where we have rarely seen any 'gangsters' within the year we have been working there.
In Waitrose, we intended to originally shoot just a few shots, as this was planned within the storyboard. However, we decided to film a few other shots whilst there in case we needed extra shots when we came to editing.
We had to film after hours within Waitrose so that we could not offend or upset any customers during our filming, which could damage the reputation of Waitrose We also needed to use a member of staff in the video to act as a love interest. The girl we asked was happy to take part at first, but became reluctant when she realised what she had to do. Despite this, she still agreed to star in our music video.
Ultimately, I believe the Waitrose shoot was a successful shoot as we filmed what we needed and more. This will help us when we come to editing the footage as we now have more footage than we need, so we can place the extra footage into the music video if required.
