Location Recce

This is the establishing shot of our location. It is an ordinary picture shop on Balham high road and it creates a sense of normality which is needed for our film as it is supposed to be set in a central urban area.

This is the living room where the house trashing scene will take place. The room needs to look natural to create a further sense of normality so furniture will not be moved.

This is the door that will be tracked as our abnormally normal antagonist is making his frantic police call after trashing the house. This door leads to the bedroom where the female character will be on the floor lifeless.

This is on of he bedroom ideas where the female character will be shown on the floor lifeless and then wake up in the last frame. This is the first choice for this scene although due to the rooms size if any difficulties occur a back up room is available to use. The room will not be changed, furniture will not be moved to create a sense of normality.

This is where the female characters lifeless body will be laid, alongside the bed. There is enough room for the character to lie comfortably, position herself to look dead whilst leaving the scars and bruises on show.

This is the back-up room for the "lifeless body" scene. This room is bigger allowing easier maneuverability with camera equipment and more choice for camera angles. However if it is filmed in this room framing a shot may be complicated due to posters and damaged walls and wallpapering.

Location Name: Ian's Artwork/ Max's house

Balham High road
Ian's Artworks
81 Balham High Road
SW12 9AP

Date Visited: 2nd of December

Why/ how location could be used: All the crimes and actions will happen in different individual location in this one building. Rather that a school or altered location we are going to be filming in a real house to maintain realism.

Sound considerations: There is a main road directly outside the house so that had been taken into consideration but the noise from the traffic cannot be heard from inside the house.

Lighting considerations: Stylised can be used by using lamps and covering them with coloured paper if necessary and Natural lighting of the establishing long shot outside Ian's artwork. Shadows will be needed during the "it's done" scene.

Access to electricity: Yes

Permission needed: Yes, from Max as his room is going to be used and his mum as she owns the shop that we needed to film for the establishing shot. We have permission from both these sources to film
