Filming Day 7

Filming Day 7


Tolani, Jack and I went to the dance changing rooms to film Jack walking into the changing room and sitting down. We also wanted to film Jack unpacking his kit he received when signing his contract but we ran out of time.



We filmed the same type of tracking shot that we did in the football changing rooms, however instead of scruffy football boots Jack was wearing smart loafers as it isn't long after he's just signed his football contract.



We brought additional lighting to the changing rooms with one set of lights to make filming brighter as when we shot in the football changing rooms it was quite dark however we thought we'd keep that dark footage to represent the darkness and grit and roughness of his life then.


Unfortunately due to time we were unable to film everything we wanted to film.

We made sure our drawings and handwriting was messy and immature so it seems like a young boy did it. We are also thinking about maybe incorporating some credits onto it.

We found a new location to film Jack sign his contract for Tottenham. Kaan, Jack and Tolani went into a computer room and cleared a desk in the centre of the room, because there were still computers around the room, to avoid making the setting not look like a convincing office/meeting setting, we did an over the shoulder shot of jack signing the contract and also a birds eye view shot of the contract which we captured by Kaan standing over jack on a chair.

Unfortunately I was unable to attend school when Kaan went to the school changing room and filmed the changing room and the environment of them. The floors were muddy and dirty which is perfect for what we are trying to achieve with Jack starting of poor and disadvantaged to a rich young professional. I also think that it is good that the changing room looks quite crowded and compact.

 it make it like convincing that he is just a poor boy and nothing special.

This is the contract that we used for Jack to sign for Tottenham. we got it from searching 'Football contract template'. This is the contract that we saw Jack sign in the scene.

Today Jack and Tolani went to the school library to film Jack signing his contract for Tottenham, they printed of a fake football contract and took a number of different shots such as close ups and behind the shoulder.

Unfortunately we cannot use this footage as in contains mis-en-scene that does not look like a place that a player would sign his contract. Also the footage is really dark and it is meant to be a happy moment in the title sequence so it should be bright and lit up.

We are looking for another location that we can film this scene in so it looks realistic and we will us lights to make sure that is is bright and looks like a happy event in the title sequence.

Today me, Tolani and Kaan shot medium wide shots in order to establish setting. We filmed our school football pitch which looks quite rough and deserted to show where he first started playing football before becoming rich and playing on expensive professional looking astro turf football pitches. This shows that our protagonists start in life was in a poor neighbourhood and he didn't have much. It shows the financial and social struggle he faces along with him being alone and feeling lonesome.
