Day 1 of Filming - Martin Woodhatch
Following the previous mentioned crisis meeting we decided upon TopGolf as the location which was most suited to our project. TopGolf was chosen because it was in close proximity to our location and not only was it indoors but it also tied in with the theme of our project which was upper class kids acting like gangsters whilst still remaining upper class. Before we were able to film at TopGolf we decided to ring them to make sure that we would be able to film as the company may not allow us to film on there property. Fortunately for us TopGolf allowed us to film on the property and we were therefore able to start the filming process. Before we began filming we had to decide upon which lyrics would be lip synced at TopGolf. This therefore meant that our main actor had to memorise what he would say and the act it out whilst we were filming.We decided to film ourselves lip syncing whilst playing golf, this therefore meant that we could portray the fact that we were trying to act like gangsters but were unable to because we were playing golf. We also decided to get shots were two of us were swinging the golf club at the same time. Although at first we weren't sure of the idea when it came to editing this was one of the better shots that we filmed on the day. Another shot that we decided to perform was us walking towards the camera and acting like gangsters as if we were trying to gain the most attention. Are reasoning for doing this was that a huge percentage of the music videos from the rap genre included this and we therefore wanted to do this as we believed that it would portray our theme.
