- Meet to share ideas and select a new short film to make
Looks like there could be enough interest to make a film. Let's share ideas and choose a script to go with. Here is the script challenge: - No more than 3 characters - No more than 1 location - A single scene, no more than 10 minutes long (5 double spaced pages) If you think you have a script like that, bring it along! The idea is to involve as many people as possible, so if you have any interest at all, come along, and a task can be found for you, be that filming, directing, acting, writing - it's all up for grabs. I have a back-up script if needed, we'll make sure something happens come what may, but I prefer to open this up to the group - so bring your scripts!
- Filming this Saturday - actor + camera holder sought - no experience necessary
We'll film first 4 scenes of a short film,[masked]pm saturday. We could do it sunday if people can't make saturday. There's no need to take it seriously, we'll just film quickly, see how it goes. If there's appetite we'll continue filming the story over the weekends after too. for saturday we just need someone to be a camera holder and someone to act a part. I have filming/makeup stuff. Broad theme is a character who has been cursed and flees into a country setting. There he meets a series of characters. the actor on saturday would be for one of these characters. Scenes to film: 1. Character escapes town into field, dramatic short sequence. 2. Character encounters pitiful, troll-like boy foraging in hedges, basic make-up, I have this covered. This troll boy (actor can be any age/gender, doesn't matter) is a tragic figure of sadness, haunted, abandoned, expressive but has no dialogue. It will be odd to bring sympathy to such a figure. 3. Character and troll continue into countryside as sun sets (ie. 4.30pm). 4. Night scene - (ie. 5.00pm) - troll and character find very basic shelter. Desperation. Poor conditions, sense of despair. That's all, enough to get the ball rolling. Meet in Puregym car park, Manton Ln, Bedford MK41 7BJ - 3.30pm. Should be done by 5.30, let me know if you're keen to take part.
- 2nd Meetup to pick a short script and assign roles
Hi, firstly thanks to all who attended the last meet, good to see you! We decided we should push ahead to pick a short script and assign roles - actors, camera, sound, composers, directors etc. So please bring your ideas, short scripts, and your good selves, and we'll put together a team. If you can't make it but still want to help, let us know in the comments below. I'm sure we can find something for everyone. P's if anyone can't make it but really wants to help I some way, let me know and I'll try to find you a role. I have 5 small parts in my short script for example, if acting is your thing.
