|Today's shoot- Lizzy's room.|
Despite the lack of action, the level of detail I wanted to capture meant that, once again, I'd underestimated the amount of time needed- so three hours became closer to six! Still I'm very happy with the footage we've captured. Some concerns about the sound- the room faces a very busy road. My friend James, who essentially converted his front room into a bedroom set for us, has worked so hard in doing this, right down to the little details and trinkets, that even with the sound challenges I can't think of a more perfect location.

My father has actually been hugely supportive of my video production. Strange because he was the kind of dad who would ask 'how is this going to help your education?' when I spent money on films or games whilst growing up.

|Today's shoot- Debra in the garden|
Though I have used storyboards in the past I've found I quite enjoy arriving at a scene and thinking on my feet about what would look best. I hope that's not just laziness, but it also means I share ideas with others about what may or may not look good. It's taken time to stop worrying about not having everything meticulously plotted out, though I also think we're far from sloppy also.
