Daily Production Report- Day Two

After we first location of Heacham Hall become unavailable I quickly contacted my main actress playing the role of Grace to see if I would be able to use her Dance School's Dance Studio, which is Miss Ashley's Dance School which is located in Dersingham. An available slot to film was the 29th March.

My main Actress is Polly Balding I casted her as she has performed along side me before and I knew she was a very confident Actress and Dancer. She also has a great feeling of grace and elegance when she dances which I felt was key for Grace to have.

Upon Day Two I filmed the majority of my film opening. Due to the high level of acting skills I did not feel I needed to take as many takes as I did with Charlie Mcshane as after Take Two of each shot I was confident I had achieved a high quality shot.

Due to the short notice of change of location , before I left to film upon the 29th I felt the screenplay needed to be altered. This also meant I changed my Story board.

While filming upon shot 5 where Grace is rehearsing I found I had difficulties with my Tripod and was unable to tilt the camera upwards to ensure that the action was still captured within the frame. This trouble was due to me not being totally familiar with my equipment. Although I am pleased with the shot.

I feel the location was better than my first location of Heacham Hall as the mirrors with Miss Ashley's Studio created a great visual effect which I am very pleased with.
